On Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice officially closed their two year investigation into whether the IRS targeted conservative groups inappropriately.
According to The Blaze, no charges will be filed against former IRS employee Lois Lerner, or against anyone else.
Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik wrote in a letter that the investigation found, ”substantial evidence of mismanagement, poor judgment and institutional inertia leading to the belief by many tax-exempt applicants that the IRS targeted them based on their political viewpoints. But poor management is not a crime.”
“We found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt, or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution,” the letter added.
The Justice Department claims to have found no evidence that IRS officials tried to “obstruct justice.”
“Based on the evidence developed in this investigation and the recommendation of experienced career prosecutors and supervising attorneys at the department, we are closing our investigation and will not seek any criminal charges,” the DOJ said in the letter.
