Default Trump DOJ settles lawsuits over Tea Party targeting by Obama IRS

Looks like our government finally settled over Obama's IRS illegally targeting conservative groups.

Trump DOJ settles lawsuits over Tea Party targeting by Obama IRS | Fox News

Quote:
The Trump administration, after years of litigation, has settled lawsuits with Tea Party and other conservative groups who say they were unfairly targeted by the IRS under the Obama administration.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced early Thursday that the Justice Department had entered into settlements with Tea Party groups whose tax-exempt status was significantly delayed by the IRS dating back to 2013, “based solely on their viewpoint or ideology.”

The settlements involve payments to the plaintiffs and an apology from the IRS.

No, the IRS is repaying the citizens groups for costs incurred during the IRS's illegal activities.

An apology? That's it? What about firing those involved or taking away their pensions? Settlements will be from taxpayer funds, and that's no punishment at all.

Agreed. An apology and admittance of guilt is a good start but proper punishments need to be unleashed.

This is again one of those incidents conservatives knew happened while libs denied it for partisan sake.
