(Washington, DC ) Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding the Obama Justice Department decision to close its investigation of the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups and other conservative opponents of President Obamas policies:
President Obamas IRS was used against his opponents to help him win reelection. So the Obama Justice Departments decision to shut down its IRS abuse investigation with no prosecutions is as unsurprising as it is corrupt. Judicial Watchs independent litigation proved the Obama IRS obstructed justice and destroyed evidence. And we uncovered that the IRS and Lois Lerner conspired with the Justice Department and FBI on a plan to jail the very Americans the IRS was illegally suppressing. In fact, Justice Department lawyers recently admitted in federal court that the IRS watchdog is still digging through IRS backup tapes and has no idea when the search will be complete. This same Justice Department decides it can shut down an investigation before it has all the evidence? That might pass muster in Chicago, but America deserves better the IRS is not above the law.
Congress needs to get its act together and consider the impeachment and removal from office the officials, including Barack Obama, responsible for the worst abuse of the IRS in American history. Judicial Watch will continue its independent investigation and litigation that has made it the best source for the truth about the continuing IRS scandal. In the meantime, the Justice Department and FBI, which illegally obtained IRS files on Americans with the help of Lois Lerner and the Obama IRS, should finally be investigated for their role in Obamas misuse of federal law and tax agencies against innocent Americans.
Our government, if not the country itself, is decadent. A nation that passes legislation without knowing what’s in it, allows government to operate for years with no mandated budget, and lives of the earnings of its yet-to-be-born grandchildren, is a paragon of decadence.
Can you imagine the stratosheric level of hyperventilating the media would be in if a similar story about the bush administration existed...they would already be jumping up and down and flinging poo at each other had any story had even the tiniest almost totally imperceptible whiff of corruption
Don’t forget allowing our country to be colonized by foreign invaders.
Lerner better hope Trump doesn’t become Pres.
A closed investigation means NOTHING.
As long as no charges were filed and no indictments rendered, ALL of these left wing marxist conspirators are subject to CRIMINAL PROSECUTION WHEN THE DOJ IS NOT RUN BY THE THE CPUSA.
Lois Lerner and her fellow travelers might be popping champagne corks tonight, but the TRUMP regime will put hemm BEHIND BARS where they belong.
How soon until the Brak Ubama Brigade has him “silenced”.
Has Trump addressed this yet? He should make this a campaign issue. He should verbally crucify that witch Lerner and make a pledge to prosecute her when Trump is president. The statute of limitations has not run out.
I guess this tells us that the FBI investigations of Clinton’s scandals aren’t going to go anywhere either. She’ll probably be canonized as a saint by the time this is over.
Yes. Good call. We read about the downfall of the decadent Roman empire, which was facilitated by invaders. We allow invasion, no ... we ENCOURAGE invasion, which has to be a form of insanity.
So, the official coverup is closed, but the unofficial coverup will continue indefinitely.
“the IRS is not above the law.
Apparently they are, Tom. Apparently they are.
Rome is fallen. Who will weep for her?
Nothing specific as of recently, but during his rally tonight while speaking about Bergdahl’s desertion, he told the audience that ‘lots of thing will be opened again’ when he takes office.
Shows how USELESS Congressional investigation is if you have a corrupt administration including a bent DOJ.
Hopefully that comes about, they definitely deserve to be in the slammer.
Amen...Not much different than a city, county or state run by the mafia.
