Who watches the watchers? Who audits the auditors?
An economics professor at Michigan State University made a shocking discovery while reviewing the finances of the federal government.
Dr. Mark Skidmore claims he and a group of graduate students discovered $21 trillion missing in the federal budget going back to 1998.
In one instance, the team found an unauthorized transfer of $800 billion dollars from the Treasury Department to the U.S. Army.
The transfer is labeled as an “adjustment” and indicates it was to reconcile past years.
However, Skidmore says he finds it troubling since the report also shows multiple transfers of around $130 billion.
He says he tried to talk to those who created the report, but stopped when officials disabled the online links to view the documents.
“If trillions of dollars are flowing in and flowing out, it appears to be outside of our Constitution and outside of the rule of law,” said Skidmore. “If that’s the case, that really is troubling.”
The professor believes the missing funds could even be a national security issue.
He says it’s unacceptable, and is urging the American people to “stand up.”
