Twitter files journalist Matt Taibbi revealed some concerning information on Wednesday regarding IRS overreach.
Taibbi appeared on Fox News on Wednesday and discussed the timing of the opening of an IRS investigation.
Turns out, the IRS decided to launch their investigation as Taibbi was preparing to testify before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Government Weaponization.
A letter from Committee Chairman Jim Jordan referenced the timeline in a letter to Danny Werfel, the head of the IRS.
According to Jordan, the examination into Taibbi’s finances was opened on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2022. Beyond the curious timing on a major holiday, Christmas Eve in 2022 fell on a Saturday.
During the interview on Fox, Taibbi confirmed the timeline is accurate, implying potential political motivations.
