Lawsuit: Armed IRS Agents Seized Millions of Medical Records

Judge Andrew Napolitano joined Your World to describe this “head-scratcher” of a case. “The allegations in this lawsuit are that IRS agents came armed, but not holding their guns, into insurance companies and stole the medical files of 60 million Americans, claiming they, the IRS, were entitled to it and had a search warrant for it, but declining to show the search warrant,” Napolitano explained.
