An IRS supervisor working in Washington told congressional investigators that she personally reviewed applications from groups for tax-exempt status, in testimony that appears to show the agency's scrutiny of conservative groups extended beyond the confines of the office in Cincinnati.
On Thursday, I held a news conference announcing my intent to pursue legal action against the federal government for infringing on Americans' Fourth Amendment rights.
Our constitutional republic is under attack. It has been wounded by the rise of the national surveillance state. This is the real meaning of the explosive leaks from former intelligence employee Edward Snowden.
A top Internal Revenue Service considered a key player in the political targeting scandal that's hit the agency in recent weeks was fired and had since dropped from sight, one media outlet claimed in a Friday report.
The Obama administration is facing scandals everywhere - using the Internal Revenue Service to punish political enemies, seizing the phone records of Associated Press and Fox News reporters, monitoring phone and email accounts of millions, and making up stories about what happened in Benghazi, Libya.
Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, and FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III locked horns during a rancorous House Judiciary Committee hearing over the bureau's investigation into whether the IRS inappropriately subjected conservative or conservative-sounding groups filing for tax-exempt status to extra scrutiny.
