Conservative activist Catherine Engelbrecht was on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday and said she has no doubt that there was a “collaborative effort” by a number of federal agencies to try to silence her.
The founder of “True the Vote” made the assertion in the aftermath of last week’s release of emails by U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, that suggest U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., may have worked with the IRS to target Engelbrecht after her organization applied for nonprofit status.
Co-host Steve Doocy asked Engelbrecht how many federal agencies starting knocking on her door after she launched the group.
“It was an alphabet soup,” she replied. “Five separate agencies, all seemingly out of nowhere, and in very rapid succession over a three year period.”
“What did the federal government do to you?” Doocy asked.
“Once I filed my nonprofit application with the IRS back in July of 2010, it seems as though that set into motion a series of events that ultimately would bring five government agencies to my door,” Engelbrecht answered.
“There is no doubt in my mind that these agencies were working together, that it was a collaborative effort to target and silence me for, I think, any number of reasons,” she continued.
Even more alarming, Engelbrecht said “this is happening to people all over the country.”
