Sessions heaps taxpayer "settlement" payoff money on Tea Party, just before 2018 election, decides IRS was guilty.

This is what happens when you turn the Justice Department into an activist arm of the Republican Party by a former Republican Senator. Who would believe them? This stinks. It's a settlement, and a sneaky way to bypassing a decision by our courts. Was anyone proven guilty? Nope, but red meat loving Trumpian's are loving it. Oh, the liberal groups targeted got nothing...odd?

Tea Party groups hit the jackpot:

Justice Department Settles With Conservative Groups Over IRS Scrutiny: The Justice Department on Thursday announced it has reached settlements in a pair of lawsuits led by conservative groups that claimed they had been unfairly scrutinized by the IRS. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Thursday that the criteria IRS agents used to flag the groups was "inappropriate" and "disproportionately impacted conservative groups," though a government watchdog report released this month suggested liberal groups faced similar scrutiny. This month's report by the inspector general's office for the IRS showed the agency also used words like "occupy," "green energy" and "progressive" to flag groups for scrutiny as well.
