A Louisiana private investigator has pleaded guilty to using President Donald Trump’s social security number in an attempt to obtain his tax information. 

According to Acting U.S. Attorney Corey Amundson, 32-year-old Jordan Hamlett, of Sunset, pleaded guilty to false representation of a social security number on Monday, Dec. 11. Amundson said Hamlett admitted to using the President’s social security number to begin an online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on Sept. 13, 2016. 

After receiving a Federal Student Aid identification, he used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in an unsuccessful attempt to obtain President Trump’s tax information. Officials said Hamlett knowingly and falsely declared the President’s social security number to be his own. 

With this plea, Hamlett faces five years in prison, fines and a term of supervised release following imprisonment.
