Judicial Watch has been preaching some massive truth recently.
First came word that they had sued the Intelligence Agencies over their wiretaps of Trump Tower.
Now they’ve come out with an equally strong statement: President Trump needs to clean house immediately at the IRS and purge the corruption from the Obama administration. Or better yet, dissolve the IRS altogether!
Both sound good to me!
Here are more details from the story, from WND.com:
A Washington-based government watchdog is warning President Trump to “clean house at the IRS as quickly as possible” – or, better yet, eliminate the “corrupt” agency altogether.
The Internal Revenue Service admitted to a federal court Wednesday that it has identified nearly 7,000 documents that contain information concerning how the agency targeted tax-exempt applications of conservative political organizations.
IRS commissioner John Koskinen has insisted since the scandal broke in 2013 that the agency had cooperated completely in the investigation of its targeting of conservative groups. Now, in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the IRS revealed it has 6,924 documents related to its targeting of tea-party conservatives during the Obama administration.
Washington-based government watchdog Judicial Watch filed the suit against the IRS in 2015 to determine how the agency selected individuals and organizations for audits after they requested nonprofit tax status.
Despite court orders forcing officials to admit the existence of the records, the IRS refuses to say when it will release the documents to the public.
“At this time, the Service is unable to provide an estimate regarding when it will complete its review of the potentially responsive documents,” the IRS Status Report states. “The Service will begin producing any non-exempt, responsive documents by March 10, 2017, and, if necessary, continue to produce non-responsive records on a bi-weekly basis.”
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, described the revelation as a significant breakthrough.
“The corruption at the IRS is astounding,” Fitton said in a statement. “Our attorneys knew that there were more records to be searched, but the Obama IRS ignored this issue for years. President [Donald] Trump needs to clean house at the IRS as quickly as possible.”
In fact, Fitton said Trump should go a step further and completely “eliminate” the IRS altogether.
“Putting lipstick on a pig is still a pig,” Fitton told WND. “But in the meantime, there has got to be significant reform and accountability for what went on in the past.”
