On Thursday, feds raided the Chicago City Hall office of a lawyer who used to do tax work for President Trump.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, federal agents removed everyone from the office of Chicago Finance Committee Chairman Ed Burke and put brown paper on the doors.

Ed Burke previously helped Donald Trump with his property taxes, reducing Trump’s tax burden on his Chicago skyscraper by $14 million.

Trump and Burke decided to go their separate ways earlier this year citing “irreconcilable differences.”

“Source says feds showed up this am, asked everyone to leave and put brown paper on the doors,” tweeted Chicago Sun Times reporter, Fran Spielman.

“Eight more federal agents just arrived at Burke’s ward office.”

The Chicago Sun Times reported:

Federal agents showed up unannounced at the City Hall office of Finance Committee Chairman Ed Burke, kicked everyone out and papered over the windows Thursday morning.

The nature of their visit was not known, but Ald. Burke (14th) has dodged dozens of federal investigations over five decades in Chicago politics.

Federal agents also showed up to Burke’s ward office and papered over the windows there.

A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment. Calls to the FBI office in Chicago and the IRS criminal investigations division were not immediately returned.

Burke’s brother, state Rep. Dan Burke, reached in Springfield, was stunned by the news.

“It’s shocking. I don’t know what to think,” Burke said from his state capitol office.
