The IRS Scandal, Day 1196

IRS Logo 2Breitbart, ‘The Intimidation Game’: IRS Scandal Looms over Next Administration:

In June, Hillary Clinton warned that Donald Trump was a would-be dictator who could not be trusted with the powers of the presidency. “Imagine if he had not just Twitter and cable news to go after his critics and opponents, but also the IRS, or for that matter our entire military,” she said. “Given what we have seen and heard, do any of us think he’d be restrained?”

How ironic, given that she served in the Obama administration while it abused the powers of the IRS to target conservative groups. ...

Hillary can be expected to pass some version of the DISCLOSE Act, a Democratic Party initiative to flush out the political views of federal contractors, and could revive proposed IRS regulations that would effectively legalize the targeting that was done in the IRS scandal.

Trump has been combative with the press, but there is nothing to suggest that he would pursue, or sanction, the kinds of abuse that Hillary Clinton and her party have been eager to encourage in the recent past. In fact, only a Trump presidency holds out the possibility of bringing the perpetrators of the IRS scandal to justice. In contrast, a Clinton win could see a renewed effort to target conservatives for the “crime” of dissent.

Its also hypocritical considering that Hillary and her husband used the IRS to audit people off of their enemies list and used the FBI to spy on them.

And for thin skinned military response, we are now at war in Syria because Obama was personally shown to be a fraud by Putin. Russia was the administration darling until Putin called Obama's red line bluff.
