Six conservative groups to appear before Ways and Means on Tuesday

Four of the other groups that have representatives scheduled to testify – the Laurens County Tea Party, the Wetumpka Tea Party, the San Fernando Valley Patriots and the Linchpins of Liberty – are all among the roughly 25 groups taking part in a lawsuit against the IRS filed by the American Center for Law and Justice.

The sixth group, the Coalition for Life of Iowa, was asked not to protest in front of Planned Parenthood offices as a condition of their tax-exempt application being approved, according to media reports.

The Tuesday hearing is scheduled to be the second on the IRS controversy for Ways and Means, and fifth overall in Congress. Danny Werfel, the new acting IRS chief, makes his debut in that role before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Monday.

Congressional panels have already heard from current and former IRS and Treasury officials and the Treasury inspector general whose report outlined the targeting.
