On Tuesday, Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., said on Twitter that he observed IRS agents training with AR-15s, and is investigating the issue, Twitchy said.
“A few weeks ago when I toured a DHS facility I saw #IRS agents training with AR-15’s. I’m looking into the issue now,” he tweeted.
“It’s bad enough that IRS agents have been targeting conservatives. It’s even worse that they plan on hiring 16,500 new agents over the next few years to enforce ObamaCARE. Now, it seems the Obama Administration is turning IRS agents into soldiers for some reason,” said a post at the Liberty Crier.
The revelation comes as members of the House are still investigating the agency’s handling of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.
