Whoa! A federal judge just REVIVED a major Obama scandal

With all of the media attention focused on President Trump and his alleged — and at this moment, non-existent — “Russia collusion” and “white supremacist” connections, there’s a lot of leftover scandals from the previous administration that have faded into the background or been completely forgotten.

Such as the IRS targeting conservative groups, for example. This happened a few years back, right around the time of the 2012 election, but it didn’t come to light until a few years later.

There was a brief flurry of activity looking into the matter, and a few people resigned from the Administration as a result, but all in all, nothing really came of the whole affair.

Well, if a federal judge has his way, that might be about to change.

According to the Washington Examiner, Judge Reggie B. Walton of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the IRS last week to release the names of employees involved in targeting conservative and Tea Party groups. Walton also told the IRS to explain why groups were targeted and search for additional records in agency databases from May 2009 to March 2015.

The IRS has until Oct. 16 to complete its records search.

Walton’s order was a turning point for True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht in her legal battle with the IRS that began in 2013.

“We’ve come so far, and I believe that we are going to bring this thing to a head,” Engelbrecht told the Washington Examiner. “I believe we will see the IRS correct its ways, and as to accountability, I’d love to see some perp walks.”

In a conference call with Bopp several weeks ago, he said Justice Department lawyers representing the IRS said it performed a search of a database of documents compiled in response to congressional inquiries and found nearly 2,000 documents related to True the Vote.

“I was shocked there were 2,000 documents, and then I was doubly shocked when they hadn’t produce them,” he said. “You could’ve picked me up off the floor. They had them. They didn’t produce them, and they weren’t even going to tell us.”

Bopp went on to say that, among the records possessed by the IRS, are emails and other assorted documents that “tell the … backstory of what they were really doing and why they were doing it.”

He also stated that the case file to True the Vote was heavily sanitized, containing only the information that the IRS actually wanted to reveal and not the entire truth.

One has to pose the question: If the IRS is doing all it can to prevent the full story from coming out, what’s it trying to hide?

How many people are involved and how high up the proverbial food chain does this thing run? Does it go all the way up to the top, to former President Obama?

Regardless, all of those involved need to be held accountable for their actions and punished accordingly for violating the sacred rights of American citizens.
