Project Veritas has released another bombshell story on the deep state. This time, the group went undercover to reveal an anti-conservative bias in the Internal Revenue Service.
Fresh from skewering Justice Department employees who feel free to use their positions to oppose President Donald Trump, Project Veritas was able to get two IRS officials to talk candidly about the anti-conservative bias in the powerful agency.
One official, identified as Thomas Sheehy, an IRS tax examiner and member of the Austin Democratic Socialists of America in Texas, boasted about former IRS Commissioner John Koskinen destroying “evidence” that could have been used against Lois Lerner, the former official in the IRS who was accused of targeting conservative non-profits seeking tax exempt status between 2010 and 2013.
“John Koskinen. He got a lot of flak for giving increased scrutiny to these Tea Party groups. Conservatives got really mad at him,” Sheehy said on the video.
Sheehy went on to offer his admiration for Koskinen.
“He was so cool though because he deleted all the emails, so they could not hold any evidence against him,” Sheehy said.
It’s not a surprise that Sheehy considers destroying evidence to be “cool” considering what else he said about the law — and the potential for the IRS to target conservative groups of American citizens.
“Yeah, I don’t give a s**** if that is a crime for doing that because… you should give increased scrutiny to those groups because a lot of them are just f***ing fronts for the Koch brothers or whatever,” Sheehy said.

Another man intervieweed, identified as Jerry Semasek, an IRS attorney in Washington, DC., seemed to confirm the anti-conservative bias from the IRS in the targeting controversy.
“Lois Lerner and maybe some of her employees were more liberal leaning or Democrats so I don’t know if they disallowed (conservative groups), but they required them to produce more documentation to try to prove that they weren’t partisan,” Semasek said.
Sheehy, meanwhile, admitted that he uses IRS benefits to engage in socialist activism for the Democratic Socialists of America.
“I will say, I just really like the benefits. I get a lot of paid time off and sick days. So, like, for DSA stuff, I can honestly just like… I wanna just stay late for a period. So, I will just call in for the next day,” Sheehy said.
Nice knowing someone dedicated to working against the American system is making such a comfortable living on the American taxpayer.
As you would expect, this socialist doesn’t like the Constitution very much.
“Unfortunately, I am not allowed by the bylaws of my union to go against the Constitution,” Sheehy said.
Sheehy isn’t the only socialist at the IRS. He confirmed that someone behind the DSA Twitter accounts also works for the IRS.
“He helps run the national Twitter account. He also runs our local Twitter account. He’s also the guy doing all the bylaws and stuff…. yeah, he also works for IRS,” he said.
Project Veritas once again revealed something we all suspected. There are socialists in the deep state who scorn our Constitution and the conservatives who want to protect it.
