BREAKING: JW asked a federal court to unseal depositions of #LoisLerner – former director of the ExemptOrganizationsUnit of the #IRS – and of her top aide #HollyPaz. Both played key roles targeting conservative groups leading up to the 2012 election. (1/5)
The depositions of #Lerner & #Paz were sealed by a judge after their lawyers claimed they received threats. JW argues the docs may shed light on govt misconduct and that the shielding of internal govt deliberations does not serve the public interest. (2/5)
JW revealed that both #Lerner & #Paz knew the #IRS was targeting “Tea Party” & other conservative orgs two years before disclosing it to Congress & the public. They also knew donor lists of tax-exempt orgs were being used to target them for audits. (3/5)
JW uncovered docs showing that #LoisLerner was actively involved in the lengthy cover-up of the improper #IRS activities, targeting, & abuses. JW also revealed that the IRS scandal included the involvement of the #Obama #DOJ and the #FBI as well. (4/5)
JW Prez @TomFitton: “In a republic, citizens have a right to know what its govt is up to, especially when officials abuse powers entrusted to them. The effort to seal #LoisLerner & #HollyPaz depositions for all time is an affront to the rule of law.” (5/5)
