And do the job.
You know we have a culture here with this administration and really an abuse of power on many fronts with the IRS.

Pretty obvious that political conservative groups were targeted by the virus in the middle of an election.

You have groups targeted by the IRS you have journalists that are targeted by the Department of Justice.
