The IRS‘ battle against holdout tea party groups is heating up again, after the tax agency promised it would begin processing their long-delayed applications, but sent a new round of prodding questions demanding still more information.
More jarringly, the IRS then publicly released one of the sets of questions it sent to the Texas Patriots Tea Party — a move the group’s lawyer says puts secret taxpayer return information, supposed to be protected, out in the public.
“The IRS has taken the unprecedented step of publicly filing actual return information,” said Edward Greim, who is handling the case on behalf of more than 400 groups targeted by the IRS.
He said the questions asked by the IRS show the agency has not ceased the intrusive questioning that landed it in trouble in the first place back in 2013.
Can’t say as I’m surprised one bit. Who really thought this harassment would stop as long as Obama is in office and the IRS is infested with Leftist activists?
If Trump is elected he’ll have his hands full. First that baldfaced liar John Koskinen has to be fired along with every IRS employee who had a hand in this. Not transferred, not allowed to resign gracefully, not retired with a full pension, FIRED! And barred from ever working in any public sector job ever again.
Further, if legally possible they shouldn’t collect a penny of their government pensions. Let the the Clinton Foundation and the other Leftist money laundering operations take care of them.
And Lois Lerner should be indicted and put on trial for her part. Let her take the fifth in front of a jury.
Then, there needs to be a thorough house cleaning of the EPA, Dept. of Education and every other agency, including the FBI, DOJ and ATF. They all played a role in the lawless Obama regime.
One last point, all the weapons and ammunition amassed by non-law enforcement agencies during the Obama regime should be confiscated. Sell the guns and ammo off to the civilian market to recoup taxpayer money that was spent arming these paper pushing bureaucrats.
And put laws in place making sure this sort crap never happens again.
