But someone in the DOJ will be involved with Holder pulling the strings.

Here’s how it’s going to go:

No matter how horrible the IRS shennanigans,,Dear Leader has already signaled to the IRS powers that he has their back. Cool Prezzy NEEDS the IRS,,to enforce Obamacare.

Another thought is - this could be Dear Leader’s way of getting rid of the Bush appointee at the IRS,,and installing his own bootlicker to the top post.

Nothing this WH does is what it seems.

The first thing I learned in my first post-university job was from my old boss, a retired Army colonel - The captain is responsible for knowing what the first mate had for breakfast.

Is NO ONE in this administration responsible for anything???!!!

Wow, do these rats scurry away when I light beam gets close.

Eric the Red, your time in the sun is about over.

I eagerly away the Court requiring the release of the communication between you, Valerie Jarrett, Napolatono, Head of the ATF and Bronco on how best to run guns to Mexico and blame it on pro 2nd Amendment groups.

Gonna be a long hot Summer in Foggy Bottom.

How does the AG recuse himself? Doesn’t the entire DOJ have to recuse itself since they all answer to him? I’ve never heard of the AG recusing himself from an investigation? Is there an alternative mechanism by which this matter can be investigated outside the DOJ?

He should just recuse himself right out of DC.

Gotta love the irony...

The AP employees interviewed by POLITICO did not want to be identified because, according to several sources, at least some journalists have been asked not to speak to the press.

Reporter Claims IRS Harassment After Tough Obama Interview

St. Louis Reporter Larry Conners revealed via Facebook yesterday that he has been “hammered” by the IRS since his much-discussed interview with President Obama.

... Conners had asked questions such as:

“The economy is a big concern for folks, I mean the unemployment, trying to make ends meet, gas prices, food prices going up. Some of our viewers are complaining that they get frustrated and angered when they see the first family jetting around different vacations and so forth …

How convenient. Sounds like he had his deputy sign the order to break the law.

I suspect Holder was in the loop.. This act isn't going to save him.

They should reopen the Blagojevich investigation, too.

We know too much now to accept what was said back then at face value.
