IRS SCANDAL UPDATE: Feds balk at releasing docs showing IRS sharing tax returns with White House.
Less than a week after ’fessing up that it found some 2,500 documents potentially showing that the IRS shared taxpayer returns with the White House, the Obama administration has reversed course and won’t release the trove to a group suing for access.
In an abrupt decision, the Treasury inspector general’s office said that the documents are covered by privacy and disclosure laws and can’t be provided to Cause of Action, despite a promise last week to hand over some 2,500.
Yeah, the only time they seem to care about privacy is when they can use it as a brick in their stonewall.
