O’KEEFE STRIKES AGAIN: Undercover Video Exposes IRS Officials Targeting Conservative Groups
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 09/25/2018 | by Cristina Laila

Posted on 09/25/2018 10:58:19 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

On Tuesday, Project Veritas rolled out its 4th undercover video of its “Deep State Unmasked” series.

The latest undercover video exposes two IRS officials bragging about targeting conservative groups and saying, “I don’t give a shit that is a crime.”

The two officials in the report are Thomas Sheehy, an IRS tax examiner and member of the Austin Democratic Socialists of America in Texas, and Jerry Semasek, an IRS attorney in Washington, DC.

Via Project Veritas:

Sheehy boasts about and appears to justify former disgraced IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who was mired in scandal for losing tens of thousands of emails regarding the Lois Lerner controversy. The Lois Lerner controversy occurred in 2013 and involved revelations showing that the IRS unfairly scrutinized conservative groups.

SHEEHY: “John Koskinen. He got a lot of flak for giving increased scrutiny to these Tea Party groups. Conservatives got really mad at him, he was so cool though because he deleted all the emails, so they could not hold any evidence against him.”

Sheehy continues:

SHEEHY: “Yeah, I don’t give a s**t if that is a crime for doing that because… you should give increased scrutiny to those groups because a lot of them are just f***ing fronts for the Koch brothers or whatever.”

Attorney Semasek, who worked for the IRS during the 2013 scandal, continued:

SEMASEK: “… The law requires that an organization can’t be political, it can’t be partisan to be tax exempt… Those employees in Cincinnati Ohio started to separate them and put them in a pile. And it turns out that they were like the Tea Party group of people. And I think they did, like Lois Lerner, ”

And that’s the problem. Leftists continue to get away with criminal activity and nothing is ever done. No one is ever punished. Whether it’s Lois Lerner, the IRS commissioner, Hillary, those who harass people like Ted Cruz, Sarah Huchabee. The Left always gets away with this stuff and they no reason to be concerned with anything.

Some Obama-era “officials” at work.

I never understand what this Contempt of Congress really means.

Both Lois Lerner and Eric Holder were held in contempt but what did they get? ZILCH.

Try being held in contempt of court and see what happens...

Great work by O’KEEFE. The scary thing is that he is not even scratching the surface. There are thousands of these people out there.

Being held in contempt by a Republican majority congress is probably a badge of honor for a Dem.

This won’t make the nightly news. Also overshadowed by the Kavanaugh circus.

O’Keefe’s research is showing that improper action by leftists in federal employment is very probable. The answer is to have weaker and smaller government.

Trying to alter people’s shortcomings, sins and personal behavior will not work. If government is smaller, weaker and less able to impact us, then personal actions of government employees will have less impact.

The evidence against these guys seems much more circumstantial then in the last video. The incrimination is not as great since those being recorded seem a bit guarded.
