(CNSNews.com) - The Department of Justice said in a letter sent this month to Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Texas) that Attorney General Eric Holder has determined that his department has no conflict of interest in investigating the Internal Revenue Services targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups and that Holder, therefore, will not name a special prosecutor in the case.
The departments letter responded to one Cruz sent Holder on January 22. In that letter, Cruz cited a report in The Washington Post indicating that the department lawyer overseeing the IRS investigation had made political contributions to President Obama and the Democratic National Committee.
It strains credulity to say that, out of the over 114,000 employees at the Department of Justice, the only possible choice to lead the investigation was a major political donor to President Obama, Cruz wrote Holder. This, on its face, is a significant conflict of interest.
Cruz concluded his letter to Holder: Specifically, I would ask you to immediately appoint a special prosecutor, with meaningful independence, to investigate the IRSs illegal targeting of conservative groups.

Isn’t he supposed to be leaving this summer? Seems like there were reports that he is. Can’t come soon enough.
Can you imagine the howls of outrage that would be issuing from every orifice if Nixon or Reagan or Bush (either) had made such a ridiculous assertion?
The mere utterance of such a farcical argument would be taken as evidence of guilt, and would never be forgotten. It would be the subject of every late-night stand-up host from now until doomsday.
Anyone know how the lawsuit ACLJ & their 41 clients against the IRS is going? If people don’t go to jail, they better in 2016.
May I recycle the phrase?
