We already know the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is out of control. Under President Obama, the agency targeted conservative Americans and those who were affiliated with the Tea Party.
Under President Biden, they are now intimidating those who question the Biden regime or could expose it.
The latest victim is liberal reporter Matt Taibbi, who helped publish the Twitter Files showing how Biden regime members and government employees worked with Twitter to censor speech.
🚨CHILLING & DISTURBING🚨
The IRS made an unannounced visit to the Home of #Twitterfiles Journalist Matt Taibbi ON THE DAY he was Testifying Before Congress. It can only be interpreted as WITNESS INTIMIDATION.
There is NO END to the Police State under Biden.

The same day that Taibbi testified in front of the US Congress, IRS agents came to his house demanding to see him.
Now, Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio is accusing the IRS of trying to “intimidate a witness.” That’s certainly what this looks like.
With all the tax fraud and COVID relief fraud going on, why did the IRS have time to show up at Taibbi’s home? It just coincidentally happened to be the same day he was making the Biden regime look bad.
‘Concerning and Pervasive’
Taibbi’s publication and explanation of the confidential Twitter Files showed internal communications at Twitter and how they worked to stifle free speech.
As he said, the “constant and pervasive” talk between the FBI and Twitter about who to silence was clear for all to see.
People like Russiagate Hoaxer Congressman Adam Schiff also reached out to Twitter, demanding they take down things that made him look bad.
Considering that Schiff directly lied about having evidence of Trump working with Russia, it’s not too hard to make him look bad.
And now we learn the Biden IRS sent an agent to "visit" the home of @mtaibbi on the very day he was testifying to Congress on the Biden admin censorship corruption in the @ElonMusk @Twitter files. https://t.co/MnWLPPQnGM https://t.co/2eNw1KTC2v

The GOP-led Subcommittee on Weaponization of the Federal Government is investigating this intimidation of Taibbi.
In further testimony before them, he noted the attempt to use Twitter to “censor” and “control” Americans had met a lot of pushback.
Democrats on the subcommittee mocked Taibbi, saying he’s just a loser who makes up rumors. They also demanded he give up his sources on the Twitter Files.
Well, which is it: is he just a gossip-monger with nothing serious to say or are you hungry for his sources to silence and punish them?
The Biden regime and the IRS are completely out of control. Here’s hoping Jordan and the committee can hold them accountable.This article appeared in StatesmanPost and has been published here with permission.
