FBI IRS Scandal Documents: Obama IRS Waited Years to Tell Truth

Following up on some mega disclosures last week, Judicial Watch released 105 pages of newly obtained FBI “302” documents revealing that, beginning in 2010 and lasting through the Obama reelection campaign in 2012, the IRS orchestrated a deliberate policy of burying conservative groups’ tax-exemption applications in bureaucratic delays.

New Revelations in Obama IRS Scandal

Last week we revealed to the public more about the IRS’s historic abuse of power.

It has taken several years of persistent legal pressure from Judicial Watch to begin exposing Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

Clinton Email Scandal Update

The Christmas holidays are a busy time for Judicial Watch (JW) because corrupt politicians and bureaucrats often leak embarrassing scandal information during a time when many Americans are not focused on the news (and many reporters are on vacation).
