    Darrell Issa will go down in history as a cheap copy of Joseph McCarthy. At least McCarthy knew what he was looking for. Issa is just trying to keep the conspiracy theorist money flowing.

    Continously on every step the President makes...yes. Maybe we should appoint a special investigator to shadow Obama 24/7 just in case.

    You are ok with a member of Congress using the IRS to go after American citizens and the IRS violating the civil rights of American citizens?

    I suspect as long as they promote his radical left wing agenda he is totally cool with it, probably promotes it, and thinks it should be the way to rule.

    Re: Darrell Issa Subpoenas Top Obama Political Aide

    More on this investigation.

    "Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said the purpose of the office is "to assist in partisan election efforts and fundraising." White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday the office fully complies with the law, and "there's not even a shred of evidence to indicate any cause for concern."

    That law is the Hatch Act, which prohibits executive branch employees from engaging in partisan political activity."

    Political office is GOP's newest battle with White House

    Not a "shred" eh? Now where have we heard rhetoric like that before? Hmmmmm....

    For those who don't know about the Hatch act:

    Conspiracy theories are good for business.

    Darrell Issa's Benghazi Fundraising: How His Campaign Grew Rich | New Republic

    For most of his career, Issa was a lackluster fundraiser. But through the first five quarters of the 2014 election cycle, his campaign committee has raised $2,573,258. This is an impressive haul, considering he has not faced significant opposition in more than a decade. The two Democrats vying to challenge him this year together have raised less than $50,000 combined. If Issa’s fundraising continues at its current pace, he will raise more this cycle than in his first four terms in Congress combined.
    So much, that Issa starts an investigation whenever he feels he can make money for his party:

    Rep. Darrell Issa's agenda in 2014: IRS, Benghazi and Fast and Furious | TheHill

    A key Republican on the committee, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah), said that “there’s a lot more to come” on Benghazi, as well as “investigations from healthcare to the IRS to Fast and Furious.”

    Ideally, Issa would like to conclude one of the first high-profile investigations launched shortly after he became chairman in 2011: the gunrunning “Fast and Furious” case.
    Some Republicans privately have not been thrilled with the Benghazi probe, as legislation sponsored by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) that would set up a select committee to look into the terrorist attack has gained 179 GOP co-sponsors. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) does not support the Wolf resolution.
    However, here are Issa's results:

    Darrell Issa's IRS Investigation Is Falling Apart - Businessweek

    When Republicans won control of the House of Representatives in 2010, Representative Darrell Issa of California was supposed to become a star. Issa, who made no secret of his ambition, took over the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, vowing to use the power of his chairmanship to stage hundreds of hearings and hold the Obama administration to account. Anticipating what he promised would be “constant battle,” the White House hired extra lawyers and braced for the onslaught.

    But Issa wasn’t the force people expected him to be. His biggest investigation, into the botched anti-gun smuggling operation that left a Border Patrol agent dead, incited right-wing talk radio listeners. Beyond that, though, it barely registered. After two years in power, Issa seemed more bark than bite.

    Then came last month’s revelation that IRS agents had singled out Tea Party groups for special scrutiny. Here was an issue that seized public attention and posed a legitimate threat to Obama. Since then, nobody in Congress has pushed harder than Issa to pin the scandal on the White House.
    But after a burst of attention, Issa’s investigation appears to have stalled. Although he turned up embarrassing material—has any government official been humiliated quite like the IRS commissioner in the dorky video dressed up as Spock?—Issa hasn’t made the all-important connection to the White House. And he may not be able to. The news this week that he won’t release the full transcripts of his interviews with IRS officials—interviews he selectively quoted from to imply White House complicity—suggests that what they contain may in fact exonerate the administration of the very charge Issa is laboring so hard to prosecute.

    Hahaha....Bull ****! Nice display though of just how deep in the pocket some media outlets are to Obama....Too bad they sacrifice their credibility in the process.

    Pathetic base persuasion.

    no one used the IRS to go after American citizens
    no rights were violated
    even the republican appointed IG confirmed his investigation showed there was no illegal activity by the IRS employees
