The fact that Barack Obama is now just a former president isn’t going to save his behind if it turns out that he was involved in some criminal behavior during his stint as POTUS and “Community Organizer-in-Chief.”
There are still some questions that need answering about how the IRS seemingly targeted Obama’s political opponents during his two term administration, but who will ask the right questions?
Judicial Watch is just the group to ask the tough questions. They want the IRS to disclose more documents that could pertain to the 2015 Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request regarding how the IRS targeted groups that disagreed with Obama’s policies.
We have no intention to allow the extra-legal activities of former President Obama’s administration to fade into the sunset now that he is out of office. Particularly egregious was his use of the might of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to target groups that disagreed with his political views.
And heel-dragging at the IRS continues.
Last week, Judicial Watch reported that the agency informed the U.S. District Court that it located “an additional 6,924 documents of potentially responsive records” relating to our 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit regarding the Obama IRS targeting scandal.
The lawsuit at issue sought records about the IRS selection of individuals and organizations for audits based upon applications requesting non-profit tax status filed by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations (Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:15-cv-00220)).
These newly identified records are presumably not the records contained in the so-called “Congressional Database,” which the IRS created in 2013 to house records responsive to congressional inquiries into the IRS scandal.
The IRS informed JW Monday that it is producing an additional 694 pages of documents and expects to produce an additional batch by March 24, 2017. However, at this time, the IRS still has not provided an estimate regarding when it will complete its review of the potentially responsive documents.
The corruption at the IRS is astounding. Our attorneys knew that there were more records to be searched, but the Obama IRS ignored this issue for years.
We can probably expect the IRS to stall on the FOIA request from Judicial Watch until “the bad place” freezes over, because they can, since they see themselves as a collection agency of the federal reserve bank which has, basically, zero oversight from the federal government.
If Barack Obama ever sees any negative fallout over the IRS targeting scandal, it will be a miracle that we would relish, but a miracle all the same!
