Obama donor major investigator in IRS targeting scandal
Justice Department attorney and Obama campaign donor Barbara Bosserman spent more than 1,500 hours looking into the IRS officials who targeted Americans for their political beliefs, reveals documents obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Request.
When Judicial Watch filed its Freedom of Information Act appeal in 2014, it sought to overturn a lower court’s ruling to keep the information sealed. When the Department of Justice failed to respond in a timely fashion to the request, Judicial Watch sued.
In 2014, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa and House Subcommittee on Economic Growth Chairman Jim Jordan wrote a letter to then-Attorney General Eric Holder to remove Bosserman from the Obama IRS scandal investigation.
“By selecting a significant donor to President Obama to lead an investigation into the inappropriate targeting of conservative groups, the Department has created a startling conflict of interest,” the letter stated. “It is unbelievable that the Department would choose such an individual to examine the federal government’s systematic targeting and harassment of organizations opposed to the president’s policies … At the very least, Ms. Bosserman’s involvement is highly inappropriate and has compromised the administration’s investigation of the IRS.”
It’s time to root out corruption at the IRS once and for all. Americans should never be targeted for their political beliefs. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots urge our elected officials to impeach President Obama’s corrupt IRS Commissioner John Koskinen!
