-- sworn testimony this week the former IRS commissioner continued in his refusals to name names.
As to who orchestrated the targeting a conservative groups who were seeking tax exempt status.
But my next guest says it absolutely right on and she believes it goes much further than what has been revealed so far.
-- and Albrecht is president of true the -- in organization determined to routing out voter fraud Katherine thanks so much for being here.
You are the woman whose story was mentioned last week.
By a Texas congressman who said.
Who spoke of Natalie IRS inquiries and audits but visits from the ATF visits from the FBI visits from -- shot.
And the way we tallied it up is five FBI increased one IRS visit three IRS inquiries one ATF audit one -- visit.
One Texas commission on environmental quality audit and one personal IRS audit.
All after you had the nerve to do what.
Apparently after I had the nerve to file a tax exemption application with the IRS -- -- about.
You're a normal citizen.
-- -- -- normal once upon a time and then you decided you and your husband a self made you need to have a -- W started an organization that company.
In your garage.
And then -- a little chronicles because you've -- you know we can we can improve things in this country back after the 08 election you saw some things of the voting box that concern you.
And then came true the vote that your organization that's now gotten a lot of attention.
And it had you ever had any trouble with any news organizations prior to your submitting that organizations.
No and and really when I look at the timeline of events that's the that's the thing that makes it so glaring obvious that something there'd been a sea change somewhere because.
We've been in business for now nearly twenty years and prior to filing this application some three years ago.
-- had no involvement with any government agency other than to just file our yearly tax returns.
Up on filing everything changed.
They mentioned that the FBI -- -- your place of business repeat the at eight yes that is because you have the capability of producing weapons parts.
But it's not something you do.
Correct -- it is actually to this kind of separate story lines -- the FBI actually came.
To the the facility where we have our non profit operations and they were inquiring about.
-- someone would come to one of our programs and and that kind of took -- -- after after they determined we didn't really know about the person become of the programs and they began just calling in.
Following up and asking if there -- any new news to report and that went on for a period of time.
The AT half.
Is is a different deal because that is.
In involved in our private business.
We do have a license to manufacture gun component parts we've never done so.
But the ATF does have authorization to come in and do an audit.
But again ever brought to delay.
Because we know now they've admitted that they were targeting conservative groups like -- the vote for extra scrutiny.
And we'll show the viewers the paperwork the mountain of paperwork they made you turn around but.
If they are doing retaliatory.
Audits or sharing information with other agencies.
That takes it to a whole new level that's next.
Every -- record back with me she's president of true the votes so they asked you hundreds upon hundreds of questions at the IRS.
In connection with your application for Texans and status including every FaceBook post and tweet you'd ever written.
Questions about your family we have a picture of the paperwork you had to reply with.
They gave -- one week.
To turn this around not even though they took months and delaying -- do you still have your taxes -- status.
Now where we're still we're no further along now -- -- word July -- and we're still waiting.
And fact the picture that is showing that is just one round of questions we've gone through four.
It's unbelievable do you believe that the other efforts I -- the visits by ATF and FBI -- OSHA and so on.
Were were related and do you believe that this is a course of intimidation.
You know I have I don't want to believe that but when you look at the timeline of events it's it's almost impossible.
Two to make any other.
To make any other assumption I mean it's it's statistically.
Inconceivable that all that would happen in such short time -- ended never happened before.
We hope to be able to get to the bottom of this and that's why we filed a lawsuit yesterday against the IRS for unlawful action.
Our our goal is to discovery to find out exactly who knew what when and who told.
Who told them what.
It just and that -- that -- and in this administration ever knows anything before it's announced in the press.
New quick answer but they maintain this was not political.
Well I would disagree.
That Katherine thank you good luck to you as -- side -- so much.
Thank you you know goes when -- get the lawyers involved they file a lawsuit sometimes.
And sometimes that things can move along a little quicker in terms of getting answers we'll see whether that's the case here.
