Praetorian Guard (AKA the FBI) Won’t File Charges Against IRS for Targeting Conservatives — Never Interviewed A Single Tea Party Group

I Was a Communist for the FBI_01

The FBI—fast becoming Obama’s Praetorian Guard—will not file charges against the IRS for targeting conservative groups.

However, the FBI never—that’s right, never!—interviewed a single Tea Party group.

Sounds like the kind of due process normally used by totalitarian regimes. But for His Majesty Obama, the autocratic DNA of the Democrat party is in full flower.

This is the new normal.

Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit, reminds us that the IRS Scandal involved:

The WSJ.com reports:

The Journal reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is unlikely to file any criminal charges in the targeting of conservative political organizations by the Internal Revenue Service. Yet Cleta Mitchell, an attorney who represents many of the targets, says that the FBI has never contacted any of her clients to discuss their treatment at the hands of the IRS. “Shouldn’t law enforcement talk to the victims in an investigation?,” she asks in an email. “That’s like investigating a burglary without interviewing the burgled,” notes a Journal editorial.

…Beyond the harassment of Tea Party groups and the leaking of confidential taxpayer data to political opponents, the IRS case also involved senior government officials falsely assuring Congress for a year that there was no targeting. IRS brass then falsely and publicly claimed that the targeting was the work of low-level employees. Yet when it comes to allegations of misleading Congress, the Obama Justice Department was more interested in trying to prosecute baseball pitcher Roger Clemens for comments about steroids than it was in pursuing a case involving the use of the nation’s tax-collecting authority against the President’s opponents.

Meanwhile, Sarah Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, Sr., has been harassed by the IRS since 2008.

No doubt, a coincidence.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Mitchell did a good job of summing up how weak the investigation was. The only point she didn’t make was the IRS released a list of contributors to an organization opposed to SSM to a group advocating SSM. While not part of the Tea Party abuse, it was revealed when the TP controversy started.
     
    This was a red letter violation that a first year law student could brief in an afternoon. It was a more gross violation of the law than anything the left hyperventilated over in the Valerie Plame kerfuffle (when they wanted Rove frogmarched to jail).
     
    But hey, the left has their guy in power so all’s well. After all, we know that for progressives, you only need good intentions. And they will never believe the Tea Party has good intentions.

    To misquote the closing moments of my favourite cinema scene:
