The IRS targeting of the Tea Party and other conservative groups was a major scandal. The media reported on it for a while then dropped the story but here’s a detail you may not know.
The Justice Department assigned an Obama donor to investigate the scandal.
Justice Department: Obama Donor Investigated IRS Targeting
Last week we also released a remarkable letter from the Justice Department admitting that Democratic Party/Obama campaign donor and Justice Department attorney Barbara Bosserman spent 1,529.25 hours investigating the IRS’ targeting of conservative organizations in 2010 and 2012.
According to Federal Election Commission records, Bosserman contributed $6,750 to Obama campaigns and the DNC from 2004 to 2012, including 12 separate contributions to Obama for America between 2008 and 2012. The Obama Justice Department and FBI investigations into the Obama IRS scandal resulted in no criminal charges.
The letter results from our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) appeal filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Feb. 16, 2016, which sought to overturn a lower court’s ruling allowing the Department of Justice to withhold these records.
After over two years, the Justice Department finally agreed to identify the number of hours just prior to the scheduling of oral arguments during which the agency would have had to justify the withholding of the information.
Nothing suspicious about that, right?
Who better to investigate an Obama scandal than someone who donated money to his campaign?
