    In an unprecedented victorious conclusion to our four year-long legal battle against the IRS, the bureaucratic agency has just admitted in federal court that it wrongfully targeted Tea Party and conservative groups during the Obama administration because of their political viewpoints and issued an apology to our clients for doing so. In addition, the IRS is consenting to a court order that would prohibit it from ever engaging in this form of unconstitutional discrimination in the future.

    In a proposed Consent Order filed with the Court yesterday, the IRS has apologized for its treatment of our clients -- 36 Tea Party and other conservative organizations from 20 states that applied for 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) tax-exempt status with the IRS between 2009 and 2012 -- during the tax-exempt determinations process. Crucially, following years of denial by the IRS and blame-shifting by IRS officials, the agency now expressly admits that its treatment of our clients was wrong.

    Crickets, I guess the IRS targeting groups solely for political purposes is no big to the left and the msm.
    Maybe the Trump IRS can do it to Black Live Matters to even things out.

    I assume that ABC, CBS, NBC & CNN are running this story as front page headlines.

    It does not matter in the eyes of many.It is justified because it was done under the watchful eye of the previous corrupt administration.
