IRS visited Twitter Files journalist Matt Taibbi's home as he gave evidence to Congress
The IRS visited Twitter Files journalist Matt Taibbi’s home on the same day that he gave evidence to Congress on the ‘weaponization’ of the federal government.
The federal agent showed up at his New Jersey property and left a note on March 9 – and now House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is demanding an explanation over the visit.
They said the rejection was based upon identity theft concerns.
Taibbi gained the attention of millions of viewers with the first installment of the Twitter Files – focusing on its internal discussions leading them to censor the Hunter Biden laptop during the 2020 presidential election.
The IRS visit occurred on the same day that the journalist appeared in front of the Select Subcommittee on the ‘weaponization of the federal government.’
He was testifying on what he learned from the Twitter Files – which were a series of internal Twitter documents made public after Elon Musk released them to Taibbi.
The journalist wrote on Twitter: ‘For those asking, I don’t want to comment on the IRS issue pending an answer to chairman Jim Jordan’s letter. I’m not worried for myself, but I did feel the Committee should be aware of the situation.’
In a follow up tweet, he added: ‘I’ve been reassured now that there’s no problem, but I still look forward to hearing an explanation.’
