Customer Question
I see where the US...
I see where the US Treasury was given to the Federal Reserve in 1920 41 statue at large page 654 . Has the US Treasury ever been returned to congress or does the Federal Reserve Bank still own it? The IRS is a branch of the US Treasury and both claim to represent the US Government. https://www.loc.gov/law/help/statutes-at-large/66th-congress/c66.pdf

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This information comes from sites operated by "sovereign citizens" who believe government has no right to control anything, that money is a fallacy and that banking is corrupt. Quite honestly, during the market crash, the US Department of Treasury was assigned to work with and monitor the Federal Reserve system, they were not put "Under the federal reserve" or "owned by" the federal reserve. The US Department of Treasury is under the Executive Branch of government and the Secretary of Treasury is a Presidential Cabinet member. The IRS is a part of the US Department of Treasury, they are not a separate entity. The Department of Treasury works TOGETHER with the Federal Reserve, but it is not owned by it as the sovereign citizens try to claim by using the ancient statutes at large.

If it's no longer true then where in law was the US Treasury returned to Congress? That was my original question anyway.. I see where the US Treasury was given to the Federal Reserve in 1920. If the Federal Reserve no longer own the US Treasury like you claim. Then you should know when and where "in law" it was returned to Congress? My Aunt Susie retired from the IRS in Fresno 1985. I remember my aunt and her friends who also worked at the IRS were at her retirement party in 1985. They were all talking about how surprised they were to find out the IRS is owned by the federal Reserve. I did my own research and found where the US Treasury was given to the Federal Reserve in 1920 41 Statue at Large page 654. But no sigh of the US Treasury ever changing owners after that. So was it sold or given back ? Where in law did you find this?
