The investigator who wrote a scathing report about the Internal Revenue Service targeting tea party groups says he is "disturbed" the agency withheld newly-released documents showing progressive groups may also have been singled out for additional scrutiny.
In prepared testimony, J. Russell George told a congressional panel Thursday the IRS did not provide the documents to his office during a yearlong audit. George said he just received the documents last week.
George issued a report in May that said IRS agents in a Cincinnati office improperly singled out groups with "tea party" and other conservative labels for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status from 2010 to 2012.
George has since come under fire from Democratic lawmakers who say his report was one-sided.
