IRS aware of tea party targeting as early as 2011, watchdog finds
From Washington Times:
“The IRS knew agents were targeting tea party groups through “guilt by association” as far back as 2011, according to new documents released Wednesday by Judicial Watch that show the tax agency was deeply skeptical of all the new conservative groups emerging under President Obama’s watch.
“Agents were jumping to negative conclusions,” one IRS employee said in a handwritten note the agency produced to Judicial Watch, a conservative law firm.”
Below is a tweet by Judicial Watch President, Tom Fitton, referencing a report that IRS officials recently denied Tea Party groups waiting for tax-exempt status.

Judicial Watch believes that President Trump should reopen the investigation as soon as he takes office. We are committed to holding these corrupt officials responsible for their misconduct.
