    Hey, Pete, does 'Activist Attorney General' ring a bell? Holder said it himself.

    How very interesting. I'd have to put this well within character of this president and this administration's 'politics uber alles'.
    But so far, it's only a working theory, unless you've got more, and I'd like to read it over.

    On the flip side, it's not that hard to imagine. After all this same president and administration sent the IRS after conservative groups, right?

I think just about every former governor and attorney general in VA said McDonell did not break any laws and yet here he is on the way to jail because he used a telephone and the internet to do something the Justice Department turned into a crime that wasn't a crime beforehand.
    Yeah, interesting how this particular administration and this particular president rolls, eh?

    As serious as he was and is about ObamaCare. Problem with the Iran deal and ObamaCare is that he really doesn't care one thing how much a mess, how impossible and dangerous a position, he puts the nation and the next president. All he wants is that it makes it to the end of his administration so that he can claim legacy on it. Remember, he's a class A #1 narcissist, right?

    Color me surprized. I didn't think the Holder Justice Department would ever go after a fellow Democrat. Certainly not a sitting senator, anyway.

    On the other hand, let's see if they actually file the charges.
    Interesting timing. Lets remember that Menendez is a supporter of increased sanctions on Iran and seems to be against the Kerry/Obama deal. This may be a reminder to dems that they better not get out of line with the white house.

    LOL There is finally evidence of this? Do tell, I really want to know what it is, please don't bring up that Lerner takes the fifth stuff, because that doesn't fly. You must know there is not even a smidgen of corruption, right?

    Seriously, do you honestly believe the president is responsible for that?

    The Holder Justice Department has gone to the opposite extreme as the Justice Department under Bush's AG. Why neither party has made any attempt to reign in the Justice Department is beyond me. I guess this is what happens when special prosecutors are replaced by special counsels who are still under the thumb of the DOJ and AG--the Justice Department becomes above the law.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    It all depends on what the now finally recovered emails reveal. Last I recall, there was a trail that at least lead to the White House. If it goes all the way to Obama or not is still up in the air. Whether a fall guy is arranged to protect the president is also yet to be seen.

    One of these newly recovered emails has already revealed that Lerner and a cohort of hers, both of who's hard drives just happened to crashed the same week (if you can believe that), were concerned about that being believable, which calls to question, whether these coinciding hard drive crashes weren't arranged, a question that I'd like answered.

    After all the bold faced lies that this President has told, and you still believe him and his words? I find that rather incredible and unbelievable, really.
    Please don't forget the old saying "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, same on me". Pete, don't cause shame on yourself.

    so the DoJ should let him slide to avoid those optics?
    then what would your side have to say about that?

    Part of the politically swinging pendulum that shouldn't be swinging if you ask me. It really should be equality before the law, at least that's what one of this nation's cornerstones should be.

    Sorry but you're wrong and I don't really want get into but liberal groups were scrutinized more that conservative groups were. As for the emails, if somebody had larceny on their minds, they wouldn't use government email to do their communication, they would use their private accounts they all have. Isn't funny how we all get stuck on stupid? All this is, is hate Obama.

    No, it's not 'hate Obama', it might be 'hate Obama's policies', or 'hate Obama and his administration's performance (lying)'. If the criminality is proven beyond a reasonable doubt by the evidence uncovered, it needs to be charged and the offender held accountable. If not, so be it.

    I would agree that the stupidity of some is utterly amazing at times, such as using official government emails for potentially incriminating communications.

    As for the Menendez investigation and expected criminal charges, we'll just have to see how that plays out, but even hinting that a sitting Senator, a senior one at that, is involved in some sort of criminal activities isn't something done lightly, and would have a nearly iron clad case. DOJ or FBI don't go around charging sitting government officials willy-nilly. One would have to think that they must have something substantial.

    Doesn't anyone wonder why now? What did Menendez do to draw the wrath?
