During Barack Obama’s sham of a presidency, he was accused of using his IRS to inappropriately target conservative groups. Though he always denied these claims, some bombshell new documents prove that this is EXACTLY what he was doing all along…
The Gateway Pundit reported that conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch just released 695 pages of IRS documents including admissions by IRS officials that the agency used “inappropriate political labels” to screen the tax-exempt applications of conservative organizations. This came after the IRS announced that it had found “an additional 6,924 documents of potentially responsive records” relating to a 2015 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit about the Obama IRS targeting scandal.
422 of the 695 pages had been withheld in their entirety. The new records were not contained in the “Congressional Database,” which the IRS created in 2013 to house records responsive to congressional inquiries into the IRS scandal.
One of the revelations in the documents was that the IRS was going to require 501(c)(4) nonprofit organizations to restrict their alleged political activities in exchange for “expedited consideration” of their tax-exempt applications. There was also a June 20, 2013, memo from Karen Schiller, then-Acting Director, EO Rulings and Agreement, suspending use of the controversial Be on the Lookout (BOLO) and Touch and Go (TAG) lists.
“No wonder the Obama IRS has been hiding these records,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The new smoking-gun documents contain admissions by the Obama IRS that it inappropriately targeted conservative groups, but the records also show that the abuse continued – as the Obama IRS tried to force conservative applicants to give up their First Amendment rights in order to finally get their applications granted.”
