Several months ago, reporter David Knight revealed that IRS executives said their lives were at risk in the Tea Party targeting case, implying that their corruption is so great that it would make taxpayers want to kill them. IRS officials requested that even their arguments to seal their depositions should also be sealed. The IRS has been used by both parties to attack their political opponents. In March, 2017, the IRS admitted that it had 7,000 documents related to persecution of conservative groups, yet they still refused to release them even in the Trump administation.

This type of bureaucratic behavior is typical. It’s how criminals operate. “THEY LIE.” So any time any of these LIARS speak, the key is to reverse what they’re saying and try to figure out what the truth behind their lie is.
