The IRS Scandal, Day 1154

IRS Logo 2Daily Caller, IRS Allegedly ‘Determined’ To Hide Records Revealing White House Collusion:

IRS officials barely searched for records that would reveal the agency disclosed taxpayer information to the White House without authorization, a court filing alleges.

IRS employees claimed they couldn’t find any documents responsive to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that would reveal the unauthorized disclosures, but Cause of Action (CoA) Institute’s Friday court filing argues the agency didn’t search email correspondence and only looked through formal disclosure requests.

“In short, the IRS appears determined not to perform an adequate search for records that may demonstrate serious wrongdoing by federal officials — the same officials who are tasked with the duty to protect the confidentiality of taxpayer information,” the filing said.
