Trump Allies Are Attacking Biden For a Plan to Hire 87,000 New IRS Agents That Doesn't Exist
Since news broke on Monday that the FBI searched former President Donald Trumps South Florida home, Republican members of Congress and right-wing media figures have launched a new line of attack against Democrats: that the Internal Revenue Service intends to use nearly $80 billion in new funding to pursue similar intrusions on average Americans. Those dollars, Trump allies are saying, will go toward the hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents.
Do you make $75,000 or less? tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Democrats new army of 87,000 IRS agents will be coming for youwith 710,000 new audits for Americans who earn less than $75k. Richard Grenell, Trumps former Acting Director of National Intelligence, wrote on the social media platform: The FBI raids Trumps house and the Democrats vote to add 87,000 new IRS agents to go after Americans. Wake up, America.
Other high-profile conservatives have insinuated that the Biden administration intends to direct those additional auditors to dig up dirt on the Presidents political opponents. After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for? tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio.
Its a notion that has taken off like wildfire, signaling what is likely to be a prominent broadside from Republicans against Democrats in the midterm elections.
Theres only one problem. Its not true.
Why Does the IRS Need 4,500 Guns and 5 Million Rounds of Ammunition?
The sources are mostly laughable, but this is out there.
Totally unrelated, but the spew "If the FBI can come for trump, they'll come for you" and then add a line about IRS agents.
To me the fact that they pulled this out of their collective ass means that they are obviously hiding something. And whatever that is seems like a fact worth knowing.
