Itâ€™s been reported that personnel at the Secret Service had information about Rep. Jason Chaffetz leaked as retaliation for the U.S. congressmanâ€™s criticism of the agency. Orwellian:
This is scary. 1984 scary. We've got an agency called "Secret Service" targeting political enemies
Think about that http://t.co/cnXFugUEv8

People who have been paying attention arenâ€™t shocked in the least:
Welcome to the party, pal. We've also got an agency called the "IRS" that's been doing the same thing for years now. https://t.co/WDBmG6tr5Z

Kinda like the IRS targeting the president's opponents, no? It's almost a pattern. https://t.co/uREjr1g3eK

More scary is that the IRS targeted everyday people opponents of the POTUS and no one was indicted. https://t.co/WK0XDxqO1X

@ron_fournier and the IRS and the EPA all under the most transparent administration in history.

Imagine if we had an IRS that was also targeting people based on their political thoughts.
Oh wait, we do. https://t.co/GfYKcjAAxq

And an IRS targeting ppl based on their political beliefs; and a POTUS who called out donors to his opponent BY NAME https://t.co/VUq1EZVKmG

It would be 2013 scary if the IRS targeted political enemies. https://t.co/koZXeNSxlW
