Reports that Jeanne Shaheen Conspired with White House Insiders on IRS Targeting Scandal
(November 4, 2014) - Last evening, The Daily Caller broke a bombshell memo pointing to U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen conspiring with White House insiders on the IRS targeting scandal.
The article yields breaking news that Jeanne Shaheen was principally involved in a plot with Lois Lerner and President Barack Obama's political appointee at the IRS to lead a program of harassment against conservative nonprofit groups during the 2012 election, according to letters exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller.
Breitbart also wrote on the story, which can be viewed here.
This past Thursday, the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) filed a federal lawsuit in New Hampshire against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, claiming the IRS is unlawfully delaying the release of records between the IRS and U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) who demanded the IRS investigate conservative organizations for engaging in "political activities."
"On the eve of the midterm elections, a plot between Senator Shaheen, Lois Lerner and President Barack Obama's political appointee at the IRS to lead a program of harassment against conservative groups aimed to trample free speech came to light.

Granite Staters deserve transparency and honesty from their elected officials but unfortunately, the Senator continues to hide."
On Thursday, in response to filing the lawsuit with the ACLJ, Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
