Subject: IRS Destroys Significant Evidence of Targeting Conservatives

The Internal Revenue Service (which isn’t a real government agency, by the way – it’s a private corporation that works for the private Federal Reserve!) is in deep doo-doo for flagrantly violating a court order barring the entity from destroying evidence related to its illegal targeting of conservative groups.

When news about the scandal went public, the IRS found itself in even deeper hot water, after it was revealed that the entity hired an outside trial law firm known as Quinn Emanuel to do its dirty work, which included pursuing software giant Microsoft.

Microsoft responded by filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request calling on the IRS to produce data showing what it was up to, data that was stored on the hard drive of its former director of transfer pricing operations at the IRS Large Business and International Division, Samuel Maruca.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) ordered a freeze on all documents and data related to the IRS’s hiring of Quinn Emanuel, which included the hard drive in question. But the IRS recently informed the DOJ that it wiped the hard drive clean back in April of last year, after the hold was put in place.

Well of course they don't have to follow the laws that they impose on the rest of us. Much like the rest of Washington. They also don't require a lot of their own employees to file taxes apparently. And I saw that famous tax evader Al at the White House dinner last night with the president. Again, they only apply their laws to us "little people."
