Prior to his resignation, Steven Miller called the two Cincinnati employees 'rogue' and 'off the reservation,' adding that they were 'overly aggressive' in handling the requests from those conservative groups over the past two years.
Miller also added that those two employees have already been 'disciplined' by the agency.
However, despite the claim of just two employees being involved, FOX19 has exclusively learned from two separate sources that there could be at least four Cincinnati employees involved.
Those four employees, whose names we have chosen to withhold until they have been officially confirmed, have each worked in the IRS Exempt Organizations Department.Swann notes in his report that Lois Lerner, the person who ran the exempt organizations department, learned nearly two years ago that employees within the agency were targeting groups with "Tea Party", "Patriot" or "9/12 Project" in their names. Swann reports that at least two Cincinnati office employees have been subpoenaed to testify before Congress on Monday.
