“saw the agency target conservative and tea party affiliated groups as a political arm of the Obama-Biden administration”
For the last week or so, lots of people have been talking about Biden’s decision to expand the IRS significantly.
Have you heard he is hiring a direct associate of Lois Lerner to help him do it?
That would be the same Lois Lerner who was at ground zero of the Obama IRS scandal, in which conservative groups were denied tax-free, non-profit status right before an election.
What could possibly go wrong this time?
Spencer Brown reports at Townhall:
Of Course This Is Who Biden Picked to Lead ‘Centralized’ IRS for His Massive Expansion
As the Biden administration continues its attempts to consolidate power within the federal government and among its leftist allies, there’s a familiar face being tapped to lead Biden’s effort to surge power, resources, and agents to the IRS — and she has quite the track record of working to target conservative groups and organizations.
One of Lois Lerner’s lackeys from the Obama-era IRS scandal — one that saw the agency target conservative and tea party affiliated groups as a political arm of the Obama-Biden administration — will be leading the Biden administration’s expansion of the IRS and stated goal of hiring 87,000 new agents.
Nikole Flax, who most recently served as the deputy commissioner in charge of the IRS’ Large Business & International Division, has been with the IRS since 2008. According to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig, Flax will be leading “the creation of a new, centralized office for implementation of all IRS-related provisions” outlined in the boondoggle falsely named the “Inflation Reduction Act.” There’s little Democrats love more than a chance to work on “centralized” anything within the federal government.
As unbelievable as that is, it’s not even the worst part. Here’s the part that will truly blow your mind…
As the Democrat Media Complex is defending the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and advancing a narrative about Trump and supposedly classified documents, this person Biden is tapping to serve at the IRS allegedly had devices and documents that mysteriously disappeared after the IRS scandal broke.
Athena Thorne reports at PJ Media (emphasis is mine):
Obama-Era Tea Party Targeter Appointed to Create IRS Office Overseeing 87,000 New Agents
Nikole Flax worked under Lois Lerner in the Obama administration IRS while the agency infamously targeted conservative political organizations such as the Tea Party by slow-walking and suppressing their tax-exempt applications. She was also one of seven executives whose hard drives mysteriously self-destructed, preventing House investigators from viewing her emails. Now, the career IRS executive has been tapped to establish a new, centralized office in charge of implementing the Democrats’ latest tax and spending bill, including oversight of the 87,000 new IRS agents the bill authorizes.
We probably shouldn’t be surprised because the IRS pulled the same thing with Lois Lerner’s emails.
I laugh whenever the media says that Republicans have “weaponized” an issue.
The Biden administration is openly weaponizing the state against half of the country.DONATE
