IRS Caught In Dirty Plot Targeting Americans

A letter Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan sent to IRS officials and Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) in July 2021 demanded information on the agency’s investigation into how citizens’ records were leaked following the June 2021 publication of private tax documents for some of the wealthiest Americans by ProPublica.

Despite an initial response, Jordan told reporters that no further information has been received from the investigation.

Jordan told reporters that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cannot be trusted after its investigation into leaks of tax documents has so far failed to produce any answers ten months and counting after it began.

“I don’t know if the IRS is on top of it. It sure doesn’t seem like it from the response we got back from them,” Jordan said. “Americans need to know that your tax returns remain confidential. This is one of the hallmarks of our system and if that’s not the case, if they’re going to be targeted by the IRS like Lois Lerner did a few years ago and have their returns go public, that just can’t happen.”

IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig referred Jordan and Issa to Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George upon receiving their 2021 letter demanding answers, according to IRS responses.

In response, George stated that the request from Republican legislators that TIGTA brief Congress on the investigation could only be submitted by one of three Democratic committee chairs – the chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, the chairman of the Joint Committee on Taxation, or the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee.

In his responses, Rettig said TIGTA had “taken the lead” in the investigation and had exclusive jurisdiction over the case if an IRS employee was found to have leaked any private tax records. Jordan’s office was last updated on the matter in May, a spokesman said.

Rettig testified before the House Oversight Committee on April 21 and the IRS referred reporters to that testimony in a Monday email, two days after this story was published.

Several requests for comment to the Treasury Department went unanswered.

Furthermore, the ranking members of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee have asked Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen for an update on the investigation into the leak. A Friday press release states that the request has not been answered.

The IRS leaks appear partisan and coincide with Democratic calls for tax increases, Jordan said.

“Somehow taxpayer returns went public right when the Democrats were talking about raising taxes on the wealthy,” Jordan told reporters.

“This is the same IRS that 12 years ago was targeting conservatives,” he said, recalling how the IRS delayed applications for exemptions for conservative nonprofits under the Obama administration.

There is a tendency for the federal government to be “weaponized against … the American citizens” in order to achieve a political agenda, Jordan stated.

“You saw it with the IRS 12 years ago, you saw it with the FBI five years ago when they orchestrated the spying on the Trump campaign, you’ve seen it more recently with the Department of Justice effort after a letter comes in to the Biden administration from the school boards association,” Jordan continued.

“Literally five days later, the attorney general of the United States issues a memorandum to all U.S. attorneys doing exactly what the letter asked the Biden administration to do.”

Rep. Jim Jordan has ripped those who pushed the “Trump-Russia collusion” narrative following the latest filing by special counsel John Durham, which indicated key evidence supporting the conspiracy could not be verified.

A filing by the special counsel reveals that his investigation thus far has found inauthentic “user-generated” data on devices; the CIA also stated that data claiming links between the former president and Russian banks “was not technically plausible,” “did not withstand technical scrutiny,” “conflicted with [itself],” as well as being “user-created and not machine/tool generated.”

According to The Daily Wire:

Allegations of collusion with Russia dogged former President Donald Trump during his campaign and throughout his presidency. Ex-special counsel Robert Mueller for three years investigated claims that the Trump campaign had illegally coordinated with Russian agents to influence the 2016 election. Mueller eventually concluded that no such evidence exists.

Attorney Michael Sussmann, who previously worked for the Seattle-based law firm Perkins Coie, approached the FBI, under what Durham alleges were false pretenses, with information on potential Trump/Russia collusion. Sussmann took what he said could be evidence of coordination between Trump Tower in New York and Alfa-Bank, one of the largest private banks in Russia.

The CIA, identified in the filing as “Agency-2,” knew in 2017 that at least part of the information that Sussmann had given to federal investigators was not “technically plausible” and was “user-created,” according to Durham’s Friday filing.

Jason Chaffetz, a former Utah Republican congressman who now contributes to Fox News, said Durham exposed an “incestuous relationship” among federal agencies involved in either crafting the phony narrative or failing to expose and refute it.

“The allegation here is that Michael Sussmann got in with a meeting with the general counsel there at the Federal Bureau of Investigation by representing that he wasn’t representing anybody,” Chaffetz said in a conversation with Rep. Andy Biggs on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
