New Testimony Reveals: ‘Lois Lerner is the Tip of the Iceberg’ in Obama IRS Scandal

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It is an undisputed fact that the Obama Regime, using a government goon squad led by the likes of disgraced “retired” Obama IRS head of tax-exempts, Lois Lerner, unconstitutionally targeted Dictator Obama’s political opponents, particularly those in the liberty-loving, pro-Constitution, grassroots American Tea Party movement.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]After all, Lerner publicly admitted and apologized for the criminal act, only to go silent — twice refusing to testify to Congress.

Now we are beginning to learn the lengths the Obama Regime went to in order to cover up their obliteration of conservative’s First Amendment rights.

On Wednesday, in new bombshell testimony, the Obama IRS’s director of privacy, governmental liaison and disclosure division revealed that the tyrannical bureaucracy established a “special project team” of “hundreds of attorneys” to bury crucial information from Congress’s probe into the matter.

The Obama IRS “amassed hundreds of attorneys to go through the documents [which were requested by Congress] and redact them,” said Mary Howard, who also works as the lead Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) officer in the out of control agency.

The redactions were so ridiculous that Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL) called the Obama IRS’s abusive withholding of information a “willful misuse” of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights of 1998.

Howard admitted to House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Congressman Jason Chaffetz, that, “Lois Lerner was the tip of the iceberg.”

Lerner has faced no consequences for her actions against American citizens, as former attorney general Eric Holder, the only sitting attorney general in American history to be held in contempt of Congress, was too busy using the race card against American police, and his replacement, Loretta Lynch, seems every bit as much a Marxist demogogue as Holder is.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Jay Sekulow from ACLJ reminds us that the pro-freedom group’s lawsuit against the Obama IRS is ongoing and that the matter is “far from over.”

Congress’s investigation is far from over.  At the ACLJ, our ongoing lawsuit on behalf of dozens of conservative and pro-life groups targeted by the IRS is far from over. Our appeal is pending before a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.


Unfortunately, the targeting is far from over as well, as the application of one of our clients has been pending for well over five years.


We will not give up.  The more we learn the worse it gets.  The IRS has become a bureaucratic behemoth that – as I describe in my new New York Times Bestsellingbook “Undemocratic” – is institutionally incapable of self-correction.


We will continue fighting to expose IRS corruption and pursue justice for the American people.

The Obama IRS is currently run by shady John Koskinen, who lied under oath that Lois Lerner’s infamous hard drive that held thousands of emails crucial to the investigation had been destroyed after it crashed.
