This has been a winning week for President Trump and conservatives everywhere. First, the Washington Post reported that Hillary Clinton and the DNC were the ones that funded the salacious anti-Trump dossier. Now, the American people finally got some justice after the IRS admitted wrongfully targeting conservative groups in court on Wednesday.
The IRS blamed former senior executive Lois G. Lerner, who had been responsible for handling nonprofit status applications. Lerner apparently made it very difficult for conservative groups to achieve nonprofit status.
These groups waited years to be approved nonprofits and were subjected to enhanced and unnecessary scrutiny by the hundreds.
The consent agreement filed by the IRS names and shames Lerner, saying:
“The then-Director of the EO Division, Lois Lerner, first became aware that the IRS received applications from Tea Party groups as early as April or May 2010. For the next two years, Lerner failed to adequately manage the EO Division employees who processed these applications.”
“Moreover, Lerner failed to inform upper-level IRS management of the serious delays in processing applications for tax-exempt status from Tea Party and other politically sensitive groups.”
This is a long time coming, but it is great to see some accountability in the federal government, especially when it comes to Obama Administration officials. Can you imagine if Hillary had been elected? Who knows if Lerner would ever have been called out.
Love seeing Obama’s people go down? Good to finally be vindicated? SHARE this out and spread the news!
