Top GOP lawmaker says IRS can no longer be trusted after document leak

A group of House Republicans demanded an investigation last year into a situation that resulted in confidential taxpayer documents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)being leaked to the public, which was revealed after a radical left media outlet published tax documents of some of America’s richest citizens.

According to the Daily Caller, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), one of the lawmakers behind pushing the IRS into investigating the matter, recently told the Daily Caller that he doesn’t believe President Joe Biden’s IRS can be trusted any longer, as the agency has reportedly failed to come up with an answer for the leak some 10 months later. 

“I don’t know if the IRS is on top of it. It sure doesn’t seem like it from the response we got back from them,” Jordan said.

He then added a stern warning: “Americans need to know that your tax returns remain confidential. This is one of the hallmarks of our system and if that’s not the case, if they’re going to be targeted by the IRS like Lois Lerner did a few years ago and have their returns go public, that just can’t happen.”

Upon receiving the letter from Reps. Jordan and Darrell Issa (R-CA), “IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig referred them to Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George,” the Daily Caller noted.

In response, George explained to the Republican lawmakers that the only way Congress would be briefed on the document leak investigation is through the chairs of a handful of committees — all of which happen to be controlled currently by Democrats.

In other words, that’s not going to happen anytime soon or until Republicans win back majority control of the House later this year, as they’re predicted to do.

“Somehow taxpayer returns went public right when the Democrats were talking about raising taxes on the wealthy,” Jordan said, before looking back about a decade ago when the IRS seemed to be targeting conservatives under President Barack Obama.

Jordan went on to suggest that agencies like the IRS, under President Biden, are being “weaponized” against American citizens in one form or another.
