New documents obtained by Washington watchdog Judicial Watch show that while the feds were directing the Internal Revenue Services campaign to target tea party and conservative groups, a key Democrat senator was pressing the federal agency to shut down political opposition to President Obama.
The organization said Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., exposed his intent to attack tea party and conservative organizations in a series of letters exchanged with the IRS.
Levin, the chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Investigations, and top IRS officials discussed how to target groups the senator claimed were engaged in political activities. In response to a Levin March 30 letter citing the urgency of the issue, then-Deputy Commissioner Steven Miller assured the senator that IRS regulations would allow agents to prepare individualized questions and requests for applicant organizations.
The documents, Judicial Watch said, show an intense effort by Levin and IRS officials to determine what, if any, existing IRS policies could be used to revoke the nonprofit exemptions of active conservative groups and deny exemptions to new applicants.

Now that that is out...what is anyone going to do about it?
The Seven Senators Who Asked the IRS to “Investigate” Non-profits
don’t let the other rat bastards off the hook
Eric Holder said there is nothing to investigate with Lerner, so John Boehner sent the case to Holder.
It’s all Uniparty Theater. No Uniparty members were harmed during the production.
Carl Levin has nothing to worry about.
They got away with it. They will do it again.
There is a war on in this country. The war is against the normal people.
Just SOP for the Demonuts
The more this particular pot is stirred the worst it stinks.
The good news is that we don’t live in Michigan anymore. The bad news is that we forgot to turn out the lights when we left.
Karl Marx Levin.
The only reason the irs exists is to be a tool of the rats to terrorize Americans.
Abolish the irs and make it illegal to be a demorat.
Barbra Streisand! The House already has found Lerner in contempt of congress based on Issa’s work. If she pleads
the 5th, and does not talk, there is nothing Holder or
anyone else can do right now.
We need a republican president in 2016.
Not a damn thing. Oh, we will hear lots of rough talk but Washington DC is noted for being a huge bag of wind.
Repeal the 16th....Just say no to the IRS..
I agree...but I think it is a huge bag of “something else”.
It would be sweet to see him spend his twilight years in an 8x10 cell in a federal supermax prison.
Carl Levin should be removed from office and there should be no argument against his being removed from office. His actions are unforgivable from a professional perspective. But what if anything will happen?
Can we send Levin to jail?
This isn’t WIRS in Cincinnati.
This should be enough for criminal charges in my opinion.
