Last week, we brought you what we’d been able to find about newly-appointed special counsel Jack Smith, who was Attorney General Merrick Garland’s choice to pick up where Nancy Pelosi’s Kangaroo Kommittee leaves off and also to examine President Trump’s possession of so-called “classified” documents at Mar-A-Lago.
One of the worst black mark against Smith is his coordination with IRS official Lois Lerner to target politically conservative groups and weaken the fledgling Tea Party movement. Recall that Lerner pleaded the Fifth and retired rather than admit what was going on and be held accountable for her actions.
As Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, writes for TOWNHALL, Smith is “just another corrupt part of the Justice Department’s political hit squad.” And he backs that up.
By the way, here’s how InfluenceWatch.org describes Americans for Limited Government:
“Americans for Limited Government (ALG) is a libertarian political advocacy organization that seeks to reduce the size and scope of the government to increase individual freedom. It promotes free enterprise, fiscal responsibility, regulatory reform, and government transparency to members of Congress and state legislatures. 
“ALG has supported reforms to limit eminent domain, strengthen private property rights, reduce taxes, limit government spending, implement school choice programs, limit the power of the judiciary, and mandate government accountability.  ALG has stated that its agenda is to roll back government programs and regulations wherever they have “impaired or impinged” individual freedoms.”
Interestingly, Americans for Limited Government sounds like just the sort of nonprofit that would’ve been targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS brigade, and perhaps it was. Manning likely speaks from personal experience. After all, the words in the above description are in keeping with the “search words” the IRS was using to target conservative, small-government groups. Individual freedom, free enterprise, fiscal responsibility, government accountability, etc...this group has all the classic earmarks of a domestic terrorist organization and must be hindered at every turn! Thank goodness we have brave, proactive people in positions of authority, people like Jack Smith and Lois Lerner, to hold them in check!
