Obama Administration Stonewalls FOIA Requests on IRS Scandal

Wednesday, February 11, 2015 | Tag Cloud

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- The Obama administration is refusing to release more than 500 documents to the Hill newspaper concerning the IRS targeting scandal, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

The Hill sought access to government documents that might provide a glimpse of the decision-making through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The Hill asked for 2013 emails and other correspondence between the IRS and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The request specifically sought emails from former IRS official Lois Lerner and Treasury officials, including Secretary Jack Lew, while the inspector general was working on its explosive May 2013 report that the IRS used “inappropriate criteria” to review the political activities of tax-exempt groups. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://freebeacon.com/issues/obama-admin-stonewalling-foia-requests-on-irs-scandal/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
