Skip to comments.Issa: FBI impeding inquiry into IRS targeting of conservative groups
Posted on 12/03/2013 6:48:56 AM PST by oxcart
The Houses chief investigator says the FBI is stonewalling his inquiry into whether the agency and the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative group True the Vote for special scrutiny, and Rep. Darrell E. Issa is now threatening subpoenas to pry loose the information from FBI Director James B. Comey Jr.
Mr. Issa, California Republican, and Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, are leading the House Oversight and Government Reform Committees IRS inquiry. They also said the FBI is refusing to turn over any documents related to its own investigation into the IRS, which began in the days after an auditors report revealed the tax agency had improperly targeted tea party groups for special scrutiny.

Ooh, Issa. Meesa shaking in my booties!
Okay, the ‘ol gumshoe Issa is still on the case. That’s a relief. Should have something in the next 3 to 5 years... if most of the witnesses haven’t died by then.
Just tell ‘em to take their sweet as$ time there, Big Daryll.
independent counsel is needed. No other way to have confidence in the process. renew the statute - or, House hire independent investigators
but when all law enforcement is corrupt to protect a party, we got problems.
The FBI targets conservatives just like the IRS.
The FBI use to be law enforcement - now they’re more like mob enforces for democrats and thuggy political elites.
What’s your point?
Well, what’s he going to do about it?
Maybe put someone serious in charge?
Make sure it extends past the next couple of election cycles while you’re at it.
Independent counsel won’t get anything done either....the dems have learned how not to answer questions and demonize the counsel.
I keep dreaming that republicans learn that they are in a war to the death and not some silly gentlemen’s club.
Issa is like the perpetual college student who takes every course, but never graduates. Not one of his investigations have resulted in any significant action.
All the admin has to do is threaten a few more ‘training accidents’ and those docs will never see the light of day.
Oh, good. The wolf is investigating the fox. The hens are not comforted.
At the same time, however, one of the conservative activists whose groups were targeted came forward to say that she was assailed by both the IRS and the FBI, as well as other federal agencies.
Catherine Engelbrecht was an officer in the King Street Patriots, which was seeking status as a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, and True the Vote, which was seeking status as a 501(c)(3) charity.
Soon after True the Vote began pushing to clear rolls of ineligible voters, Ms. Engelbrecht said, she and her husband faced an occupational safety investigation into their company, an IRS audit of their company, repeated rounds of IRS questions about True the Votes activities, and six inquiries from the FBI about the King Street Patriots including general inquiries and specific questions about someone who attended a group meeting.
They basically got the full monte all these agencies with everything shes involved in, said Cleta Mitchell, an attorney for True the Vote and counsel to the ActRight Legal Foundation.
HEY ISSA! Quit f*rting around and do what needs to be done: IMPEACH OBAMA IN 2014 !
Chairman Issa, never threaten. Just do it! Word gets around that you mean business. Well, they know your MOS so never mind.
I watched Nixon being taken down... it took years. It’ll be the same here. These democrat liars are going down...
Revealing that Issa is all bark and no bite is akin to telling them santa isn't real.
