Opinion: Comey and McCabe IRS audits are a warning sign with a long history - CNN
If it turns out the former president did play a role in the audits of James Comey and Andrew McCabe, writes Nicole Hemmer, it would come as no great shock -- not only because of Donald Trump's words and actions, but also because presidents have long availed themselves of the Internal Revenue Service and other powerful agencies to target their political opponents.

Trump is so corrupt he would make Dick Nixon blush.

"Likewise, a change in IRS procedure in the 2000s and 2010s applied greater scrutiny to tax-exempt requests for organizations with political-sounding names, which for years was exaggerated as a coordinated effort by the Obama administration to target conservative groups...."

Of course the Democrats would never, ever , think of using the IRS as a weapon against perceived political opponents.  jrSmiley_86_smiley_image.gif

McCabe wasn't filing as a tax exempt nonprofit!

The IRS scrutinizes all nonprofits for reasons. The odds are Trump criminally used the IRS against Comey and McCabe as retribution...
