    Letter: Holder Aide Accidentally Calls Issa Staff for Help Spinning IRS Scandal

    "According to the letter, Fallon – who is not named in the letter but confirmed he made the call – asked if the aides could release the IRS scandal documents to “selected reporters” to give Fallon an “opportunity to comment publicly on it.”

    What is the DOJ doing running interference on this investigation?

    Because the information that the IRS complied was done for the DOJ in the first place.

    So the real questions should be:
    1.) Why was the DOJ requesting the information in the first place?
    2.) Why is the DOJ being allowed to investigating itself?


    Oversight GOP has also hit Lerner for giving 1.1 million pages of tax return data about 501(c)(4) organizations to the FBI just before the 2010 midterms — 33 tax returns that included unlawfully disclosed private taxpayer information.

    Taylor said Lerner didn’t know and sent them because Justice requested the documents: “She [understood] the donor information on Schedule B had been removed. In some cases, we later learned, it may not have been.”

    The IRS has acknowledged that the 33 returns were not scrubbed of taxpayer information as required by law.

    It goes beyond that and beyond the administration. It's becoming evident that this is a Democrat driven issue rather than a more narrow Obama administration issue. It's exposing congressional Democrats as co-conspirators in using the IRS as a political weapon against their opponents. It exposes the Democrats as pro-party rather than pro-American.

    The Democrat party is a very real threat to the principles on which this nation was built.

    Well, maybe we need to recap all this.

    - A senior employee of the IRS publicly admits she harassed Republican PAC's in the lead up to the lats election.

    - That senior aide testifies under oath it was all the fault of subordinates.

    - Subordinates say no, she was responsible in sufficient numbers to make anyone but diehard Obamarats not doubt the original story.

    - The senior employee, hires a battery of lawyers and begins fighting congress about re-appearing and invoking the fifth amendment so that she won't "incriminate herself"

    -The administration says "old news" and calls on Eric Holder who has just lied to congress about an illegal gun running racket in Mexico

    -Now a member of Holder's staff has contacted the investigators so he can issue a statement about the latest bombshell before the investigators.

    I have to go with Obama on this one...theresnothingtherethisallapartisanwitchhunt. .....

    and it will only take three years to abolish ISIS, we have Putin on the ropes, Obamacare is the best ting that ever happened to American and the Republicans will lose every seat this November, Michelle will be president and aliens have spiked your water supply

    Seriously, has there EVER been an era when those who are in power haven't used agencies like the IRS, EPA, etc., to punish or "get back," their detractors?

    Hell, even Al Capone got zapped that way.
