Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN) is warning Americans that President Joe Biden “can weaponize 87,000 IRS agents against conservatives everywhere” if he “can weaponize the DOJ against his political opponents.”
Emmer, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman, issued the comments in a tweet hours after it was learned the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) executed a search warrant at former President Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. He referenced the Inflation Reduction Act legislation, which will dump $80 billion into the IRS to hire 87,000 more agents if the bill becomes law. The legislation — which will cost American taxpayers $700 billion and “would have a negligible effect on inflation this year,” according to the Congressional Budget Office — passed the U. S. Senate Sunday along partisan lines and now moves on to the House of Representatives.
