The Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation of the Internal Revenue Service just as another probe concludes that lax management enabled agents to improperly target tea party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax exempt status.
Holder says the IRS actions were “outrageous and unacceptable.” Holder says now his agency must determine if there were criminal violations.
Holder is scheduled to testify Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee.
