Joe Biden is on the hot seat and all hell is about to break loose.
The GOP investigations into the Biden administration are paying dividends.
And now Jim Jordan just blew the whistle on Joe Biden’s IRS committing this illegal act.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan fired off a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen demanding answers about weaponizing the IRS in retaliation for journalists exposing Joe Biden’s corrupt and lawless actions.
Jordan’s letter was in response to two IRS agents being sent to bang on the door of journalist Matt Taibbi the very day he was set to testify to the Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government about his reports on the Twitter Files which exposed that the government had pressured social media companies to censor content the Biden administration found objectionable.

A Wall Street Journal editorial reported that the IRS had harassed Taibbi about his 2018 and 2021 tax returns, despite the fact that the IRS contendsTaibbi doesn’t even owe them any money.
The editorial board wrote:
Mr. Taibbi has provided the committee with documentation showing his 2018 return had been electronically accepted, and he says the IRS never notified him or his accountants of a problem after he filed that 2018 return more than four-and-a-half years ago.
He says the IRS initially rejected his 2021 return, which he later refiled, and it was rejected again—even though Mr. Taibbi says his accountants refiled it with an IRS-provided pin number. Mr. Taibbi notes that in neither case was the issue “monetary,” and that the IRS owes him a “considerable” sum.
Taibbi’s reporting on the Twitter files confirmed that government officials pressured Twitter to take down posts and ban accounts that were critical of administration policies and talking points.
Taibbi was once a revered journalist on the left.
When he worked for Rolling Stone, he produced some of the most hard-hitting pieces about the government’s abuse of power in illegal spying as well as the Iraq War.
But now that Taibbi has exposed the Biden administration’s censorship regime, the script’s been flipped.
Democrats on the weaponization committee called Taibbi dangerous because he reported the truth about Big Tech colluding with Big Government to censor speech.
That’s because Democrats had natural allies in the Deep State and found censorship to be an effective political tool during the Trump years.
But using the IRS to target political opponents – especially journalists – is another Rubicon-crossing moment for the nation.
Taxing and policing powers are the most fearsome arrows in the government’s quiver.
And in this case, the Biden administration appears to be aiming both at an honest journalist for the “crime” of shining a light on an illegal scheme by the government to censor speech on social media.
However—marching IRS agents to Taibbi’s front door on the day he’s scheduled to testify on information that will embarrass Joe Biden could amount to witness tampering and become the basis for articles of impeachment against Biden.
