Posted on 08/05/2016 4:04:31 PM PDT by NoLibZone
A federal court ruled Friday that the Internal Revenue Service has not yet demonstrated that officials stopped targeting Tea Party groups in a decision that excoriated the tax agency for its "discriminatory" treatment of conservative organizations.
"This is a blistering rebuke to the IRS and its defenders," Walter Olson, senior fellow at the Cato Institute Center for Constitutional Studies, said of the court's ruling.

It is. No doubt about it.
How come this inept congress didnt impeach that despicable baldy IRS chief Koskinen? Guess I answered my own question.
Yes, but what effect does this really have? There are no consequences to any individual IRS employee and the tainted elections roll on. If Hillary wins in November, the court can write another epilogue just before they are told that they will support the Regime if they want any future in the remade Amerika.
Law and Order Candidate!
0dunga’s IRS has all but SILENCED the Tea Party. It’s looking like August 2012 all over again. VOTER SUPPRESSION of law abiding Americans while pandering to illegal alien voters!
We need to starts heads rolling. This must end now.
It is like Obama was talking in Singapore, no less the least corrupt bureaucracy in the world, giving lecture about Trump being unfit while his IrS has become no better than some banana or Algerian republic corruptocracy
My question is if people of these letter agencies feel any shame about being crooked as heck.
There once a long time ago were a government where prestige of being in the feds was held in high regard and the job was held with pride, now it is total sht
Why sure. Why would they stop?
Cruz was correct....
Rule of law is dead for the .fedgov bureaucracy. The politicized DOJ did it.
I’m sure that Lois Lerner, in her retirement, walks her dogs on her block all the time, without fear or shame.
Why aren’t there people protesting with signs in front of her house, especially on the weekends?
Only the little guy is subject to the laws, especially if its a conservative little guy.
Until we see US Marshals delivering arrest warrants and perp walks, it is all just a strongly worded letter.
There's not a smidgeon of law left in this country.
I’d start with Slow Learner, followed by Hussein, Comey, Jarret, The Lyncher and H->!.
Start issuing bench warrants.
It's all just empty words, unless some people go to the big house.
I just lost my appetite.
“This is a blistering rebuke to the IRS and its defenders,”
We need more than a “blistering rebuke.” We need charges of treason against the IRS Nazi leadership.
