Agreement specifically blames Lois Lerner by name for failures
The IRS admitted in court Wednesday that it wrongly targeted tea party and other conservative groups for intrusive scrutiny, placing specific blame on former senior executive Lois G. Lerner, and entered into a settlement designed to make sure that kind of political targeting never takes place again.
The filing, made in federal court in Washington, D.C., amounts to a stunning apology from the Trump administration for actions taken under President Barack Obama, when hundreds of tea party and conservative groups were singled out for intrusive screening, forced to wait years for their applications to be approved, and subjected to outrageous questions.

I don’t want apologies—I want prosecutions.
But Obama promised not even a smidgen of corruption” at the IRS in his 2014 pre-Superbowl rant.
We don’t need an apology - we need her doing hard time!
We don’t need any word-heavy apology, however well intentioned it actually may be.
We need Lois Lerner behind bars and/or SEVERELY fined for breaking the law.
“an apology from the Trump Administration”....are they nuts??
If a private business person did this they would be in jail and adios pension.
The Obama years, the most scandal-free administration in U. S. History...
Talk about B. S.
Don’t miss the fact that this will leave a mark.
Most importantly, don’t miss the fact that Trump knows what he’s doing.
BET SHE’S AN anti-Semitic cOMMI TO.
It used to be more common for other cultures to demand apologies after feeling they were slighted.
This used to be more common with Chinese and Japanese people.
Now many Americans have placed a high intrinsic value on a social gesture that is often nothing but a transparent, poorly executed act of contrition. Sad!
Lock them up.
The IRS was going to stonewall the TEA Party applications regardless of who was in the White House. To an IRS agent, “TEA” = “RIF.” It was an existential threat to far too many comfortable powerful bureaucrats. We shouldn’t expect them to go quietly without a fight.
It’s proof that the federal permanent bureaucracy has grown far too large and powerful; it no longer recognizes any restraint on its power. Not from Congress, which it openly defies at every turn, not from the elected Executive, which it routinely ignores. Not from any Court it disagrees with.
And certainly not from the American people, over whom it rules.
Im sorry..but WHAT..why is Trump apologizing he wasn’t even part of this had nothing to do with it..and I dont want apologizes..I want these ass clowns in JAIL for what they did
I read the article. Nothing about punishment for Lois Lerner. Remember, she targeted Tea Party groups in election years 2011-12 to benefit Barack Hussein Obama. These groups did not receive tax exempt status, and therefore could not raise funds to oppose Barack Hussein Obama and promote Liberty. THEY NEED TO BE HELD TO ACCOUNT!!
LOCK HER UP. IF IT WERE ME I’D ALREADY BE IN JAIL.
STOP LETTING THE CROOKS GET AWAY CLEAN.
Jail the crook and jail her boss too.
Trump should visit every stop on the Obama Apology Tour, and take it back. Then apologize for Obama.
the democrat party has it’s own sergeant shultz
She knows NOTHINK!
Hillary Rodham Shultz Clinton
Her actions also benefited the republican leadership. They knew and did nothing.
