President Trump and his administration fully intends to “drain the swamp.”
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is definitely on board after issuing a “get out NOW” ultimatum to the other attorney generals; the bottom line is the Trump Team means business.
However, it is indeed a monumental task.
Perhaps the first obstacle is the sheer enormity of the project You know, we’ve all been there: You look at a project at home and ask yourself, “Where do I begin?”
And tackling a problem like this will indeed be difficult. Why?
Now that he is no longer president, it’s much more difficult for him to keep those corrupt activities hidden.
Judicial Watch is famous for pursuing allegations of government corruption at the highest levels. Their lawsuits forcing agencies to comply with their Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests have unearthed a great deal of damning materials over the years.
Right now they are focused on the Obama administration and its alleged misuse of the IRS to punish political opponents. Via Breitbart:
“We have no intention to allow the extra-legal activities of former President Obama’s administration to fade into the sunset now that he is out of office.
Particularly egregious was his use of the might of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to target groups that disagreed with his political views.”
The IRS has been forced to move now that Judicial Watch has filed a federal lawsuit demanding compliance with the FOIA request. And it is producing results.
“Last week, Judicial Watch reported that the agency informed the U.S. District Court that it located ‘an additional 6,924 documents of potentially responsive records’ relating to our 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit regarding the Obama IRS targeting scandal.”

To help keep all these investigations into corruption by the Obama administration straight, here’s the one that’s being examined now.
“The lawsuit at issue sought records about the IRS selection of individuals and organizations for audits based upon applications requesting non-profit tax status filed by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations (Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:15-cv-00220)).”
This is the well-known tactic of siccing the IRS on not-for-profit organizations whose views are uncomplimentary of the current presidential administration.
With the IRS having a virtually unlimited budget for hiring forensic accountants and investigators, and the not-for-profits having to spend donors’ funds for their defense, you can see how insidious this is.
Of course, the IRS is dragging its feet, but hopefully these new developments will light a fire under ’em.
Obama absolutely must be held accountable for his many, many missteps. Too many of those missteps were of an illegal nature, as we’re all finding out now, and he has obviously been gunning for Trump for a WHILE.
All of it needs to stop; all of it must come to a head. Just MUST prevail!
