Judicial Watch is fighting IRS abuse

Justice Kagan Temporarily Blocks a Jan. 6 Committee Subpoena – The Case for Impeaching Obama

Lois Lerner, the Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department employees have all been subpoenaed for grand jury testimony. These subpoenas are part of the IRS scandal, uncovered as part of Judicial Watch’s ongoing campaign to expose and stop IRS abuse.
