The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will have nearly 87,000 new IRS agents due to Joe Biden’s newly signed Inflation Reduction Act, and the IRS will be creating a new centralized office and five subsidiary offices to manage their increasing wealth and power.
Guess who will be in charge of establishing the new centralized office? Nikole Flax, who worked for Lois Lerner during the IRS’ improper targeting of tea party groups during the Obama administration, is in charge of building the office. Flax had numerous meetings in the Obama White House during the IRS targeting program and then she later allegedly suffered a computer crash that supposedly deleted some of her emails. What a joke!
The IRS is training its troops to use deadly force, presumably against American citizens:
“A key part of our efforts will be the creation of a new, centralized office for implementation of all IRS-related provisions. Building off our successes implementing other major legislative bills, the IRA 2022 Transformation & Implementation Office will work across the IRS and oversee our implementation efforts,” wrote Charles Rettig, the commissioner of the IRS, in an email to IRS bureaucrats.
“Given the wide scope of the new legislation, the new office will be supported by five subsidiary offices that will be focused on specific areas: implementation of new tax law provisions, taxpayer services transformation, tax compliance transformation, human capital transformation, and communications and outreach efforts. The new office will work closely with the business units to implement the act, and with IT to align our modernization efforts,” Rettig stated.
So who is Nikole Flax?
In June 2014, I wrote an article headlined “Meet The Seven IRS Employees Whose Computers ‘Crashed.'” In the article, I wrote: “Nikole Flax, former chief of staff to IRS commissioner Steven Miller: Flax was a busy bureaucrat during her tenure at the IRS, where she worked for Lerner in the exempt organizations division among other roles. Flax made 31 visits to the White House between July 12, 2010 and May 8, 2013, according to White House visitor logs. Flax’s visits started in the early days of the IRS targeting program and ended just two days before the IRS scandal broke on May 10, 2013. Flax met twice in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building with Jeanne Lambrew, a top adviser to President Obama who exchanged confidential information on conservative groups with Lerner. Flax previously worked at the Joint Committee on Taxation as a legislative counsel, but left about six years ago, sources told TheDC. Flax attended Louisiana State University. She is married to Ryan H. Flax, a litigation consultant at the Washington firm A2L Consulting and a former intellectual property lawyer at the major D.C. law firm Dickstein Shapiro. The couple live in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Reached by phone, Ryan Flax declined to comment for this report, telling TheDC that he is “not really a part of this [controversy].'”
In September 2014, I reported: “The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) improperly obtained donor lists from nonprofit groups as part of a “secret research project” being run by Lois Lerner and other officials…Lois Lerner and Nikole Flax, who were both part of the “secret research project,” both suffered computer crashes that allegedly wiped out their emails, according to the IRS.”
In September 2014, I reported: “The staff of former IRS exempt organizations (EO) division director Lois Lerner were angry in the early days of her conservative targeting program because their pared-down office environment reminded people of “flying coach.” Top-level employees of the division were routinely subjected to “constant interruptions and distractions” during this prime phase of the tea party targeting. As The Daily Caller exclusively reported, Lerner and her underling Nikole Flax, a frequent White House visitor, announced the new program scrutinizing tax-exempt applicants at a conference at Washington’s Grand Hyatt Hotel in February 2010. Lerner and Flax, whose computer crashes allegedly deleted both of their emails, looked at conservative donor information as part of a “secret research project” approved by then-IRS commissioner Steven T. Miller.”
In December 2014, I reported: “Top IRS officials specifically targeted tea party groups and misled the public about its secret political targeting program led by ex-official Lois Lerner, according to a bombshell new congressional report. The Daily Caller has obtained an advance copy of a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee report set to be released Tuesday morning that definitively proves malicious intent by the IRS to improperly block conservative groups that an IRS adviser deemed “icky.” (That’s right. “Icky.”)…Then-IRS commissioner Steven T. Miller almost broke down and told the truth about the tea party targeting at a July 2012 hearing, but Lerner’s sidekick Nikole Flax told him not to.”
