Cause of Action executive director Dan Epstein said the documents his group obtained, which were shared with the Washington Free Beacon, suggest that TIGTA’s investigation may have been inadequate.

“Given that IG George’s examination of tax-exempt applicant reviews at the IRS was conducted over a period of just a few months—was a thorough investigation of the IRS ever possible?” Epstein asked in an emailed statement.


Even the review that did take place lacked the authority to use investigative tools that might have uncovered wrongdoing, Epstein said.


“Given that IG George chose to forego an investigation and pursue an audit, coupled with no evidence of any meetings with the FBI in IG George’s calendars, is it any wonder that the FBI has been unable to find criminal violations?” he asked.
