Is THIS a good reason for urgency in ‘Draining The Swamp’?
There’s an old saw that tells us ‘Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.’
Should that be extended to bureaucrats? The answer might be ‘yes’.
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. …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.” —WND
