In the past three months, we have learned that the Obama administration repeatedly tried to downplay this unlawful targeting scheme which is an unprecedented breach of the public’s trust by the IRS.
We also know that the scandal continues to expand. And we know that the Obama administration is doing very little to get to the bottom of what happened, despite the president’s promise to the American people that the administration would “hold the responsible parties accountable.”
Today, after all this time, it’s clear that the Obama administration isn’t really interested in the facts about how this could happen at the IRS or about holding anyone accountable.
In fact, President Obama has moved on, calling the IRS targeting scheme a “phony” scandal and acting as if corrective action has been taken and problem solved.
Problem solved? Ha. What has actually happened?
It’s been 3 months since the American public learned about this outrageous behavior by the IRS. No one has been fired. Lerner and a handful of others are on leave and still being paid.
And what has happened to the investigations underway by the FBI and Department of Justice? Three months later, not one of our clients has been contacted by investigators at the FBI or Justice Department.
It’s difficult to imagine how anyone could claim that a thorough investigation — or any investigation for that matter – has been conducted without even bothering to interview the taxpayers who were targeted.
So, the IRS scandal continues. It’s been three months and counting…
