Wednesday September 14, 2022 – Recently, our Government doubled the size with the Inflation Reduction Act. There have been assurances the IRS will not use this increase in power to target any American group.
Those assurances now ring hollow after Judicial Watch published the recently unsealed 2017 sworn depositions by Lois Lerner, then director of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the Internal Revenue Service and Holly Paz, her top aide and former IRS director of Office of Rulings and Agreements,
Judicial Watch found: “The unsealed Lerner and Paz deposition transcripts reveal through sworn testimony the bureaucratic tangle created by the Obama IRS to single out, delay and deny the processing of conservative, especially Tea Party non-profit groups’ applications for tax-exempt status and to disclose their donors’ names. At the same time, Paz admits under questioning that she knew from the beginning there was not sufficient legal basis to deny most of the targeted groups tax exempt status:”
