Now, if you remember a few years back when the IRS scandal broke that rocked the country showing how the IRS targeted conservative groups. Of course, everyone naturally thought that it was only liberals to blame but now new documents show that McCain was involved too. In a recently released report by Judicial Watch shows that John McCain urged the IRS to engage in “financially ruinous” attacks against certain exempt organizations, working with Democrats to abuse the organization’s authority and power.

Here is more from Conservative Daily Post:

This exchange was recorded in notes taken by employees at the IRS during a meeting between Henry Kerner, who is John McCain’s former staff director, and the infamous director Lerner. She was the former director of the tax service’s Exempt Organization Unit, whose tenure at the organization was extremely questionable.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with a number of staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee to discuss concerns raised by both Senator John McCain and Senator Carl Levin, a Democrat from Michigan, about political advocacy groups.
