The Department of Justice is Blatantly Giving the IRS a Free Pass

From the IJReview website: “Group At Center Of IRS Scandal Has Never Been Interviewed By FBI Investigators.”

No one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht.

This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

When I raised Holder’s assertion to Engelbrecht Monday morning during an interview on WMAL radio in Washington, DC, I asked her what her involvement and experience has been with the FBI and the DOJ, considering Holder’s claim that they were doing a “good and professional job” investigating the IRS scandal.

“That would be exactly ‘no.’ Zero. at no time have they approached us. Only when they are investigating us. Only when they are being adversarial towards us do we ever hear anything from the Department of Justice. There has been no outreach to try and get to the bottom of the scandal at any time. “

There is no doubt that for any serious and thorough investigation into the inappropriate and potentially illegal tactics used by the IRS in refusing to grant conservative groups a 501(c)4 non-profit status because of their perceived political leanings, Engelbrecht’s group would be one of the first to be interviewed.

Why should we be surprised that the Department of Justice hasn’t even talked with the group at the center of IRS’s persecution of organizations for their political views? I mean, the Democratic god has spoken, and he clearly said there’s “not a smidgen” of corruption involved. Case closed.

After all, there are vastly more important cases to investigate, like lame parade floats in a Nebraska town you’ve never heard of, which may prove to be in violation of the blasphemy laws protecting our Dear Leader.

Now that is something worth Eric Holder’s time!
