She's currently paid all her taxes. She'll be dutifully undergoing this tax investigation as well."

For people that make a lot of money, tax audits are hardly newsworthy. So-called journalists like to create these inflammatory headlines to pander to class envy. Last time I checked, making a lot of money was not a crime.
