Nearly 7,000 documents “potentially related to the targeting of Tea Party conservatives” have been found by IRS officials…, and it only took them two years.
The group Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to release the records two years ago, in an effort to figure out how the IRS chose individuals and organizations requesting nonprofit tax status for audits.
According to a report in The Washington Free Beacon, the agency is keeping quiet about its exact plans to publicly release the documents.
“At this time, the Service is unable to provide an estimate regarding when it will complete its review of the potentially responsive documents,” said IRS representatives. “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, expressed his outrage in a statement, calling the level of corruption at the IRS “astounding.”
“Our attorneys knew that there were more records to be searched,” said Fitton, “but the Obama IRS ignored this issue for years. President Trump needs to clean house at the IRS as quickly as possible.”
