Skip to comments.Issa Demands Answers from Holder on DOJ's Role in IRS Scandal, Networks Do Nothing
Posted on 04/24/2014 12:12:01 PM PDT by Hotlanta Mike
On Wednesday Darrell Issa demanded Attorney General Eric Holder answer new questions about the Justice Departments role in the IRSs targeting of conservative groups. In a letter sent to Holder, Issa sought answers about a newly released email between former IRS official Lois Lerner and DOJ official Richard Pilger in which Pilger asks Lerner When you have a moment, will you call me? Ive been asked to run something by you and requests who at the IRS DOJ folks could talk to about ways to target politically involved non-profit groups.
So far none of the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) reported on this latest IRS scandal development on their evening or morning shows.
On Thursday the Washington Examiners Susan Crabtree reported the following:

And still, holder does nothing. Yawn.
Well OKC ain’t saying nothing. Dumbass Holder is cancelling speech amid protests by Cadets. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Just protest away you guys. I’m proud.
“Networks Do Nothing”
Following holder’s M.O.
you'd be surprised how little the general public knows about anything except who the latest black baby daddy one of the kardashian poops has...
Of course the Fraud that is Issa and his ‘investigation committee’ could have long ago exercised the power of Congress and arrested Holder until it gained lawful compliance. Instead he drags it out to the benefit of Obama and the Left.
It was less time from the Watergate burglary to Nixon’s resignation than Issa’s taken so far.
I bet Bundys comments will get more coverage tonight then the IRS has all year.
And what, pray tell, are you going to do, Mr. Issa, when Holder does nothing?
Nothing I expect
Given how quickly Issa slapped the cuffs on Holder when he was held in contempt I suppose, er, eh, huh? He did nothing?
Oh, please, don’t blame Issa...Arresting holder would completely blow up in the Republicans’ collective faces...it would give a weapon to Obama and his lapdog media to hammer conservatives over the head with...
We’re all ticked off, but focus your anger on the people who most deserve it— Holder, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Sebilius, etc....Once we have the Senate, things could change in a hurry...and then it will be time to hold Republicans’ feet to the fire...
Issa is just playing a role. His part in the play is to feed the sense of inevitability concerning the march of leftism. Incrementalism. Each day passes and more lose hope he will ever do his job. It is all by design.
Any time he would like to debate that with me I will be glad to oblige. Perhaps we could make it an online event. In fact, more of us should call for their reps to debate them openly.
Please my ass. While you are concerned with a political party’s popularity, I’m concerned with whats left of the ;law and my country.
That is such a sad, but true commentary. Wherefor has gone our Republic?
Look to post 13 for your answer.
We have a winner.
He was ‘investigating’ Benghazi ‘to make sure it doesn’t happen again’.
That told me all I needed to know about him and his ‘investigations’.
So, let me see if I understand...in an election year, you want Republicans to take the focus off of the lousy economy and Obamacare, by arresting the first Black attorney general, giving the democrats a political weapon to use against the republicans in November...a gift that would galvanize their base (blacks who don’t normally vote in midterms) and potentially throw the senate away...meaning more elected democrats who will continue us down this road to hell? Is that what you want? Umm...good luck with that...
DOJ and the WH are neck deep in the scandal. But what difference does it make?
"Evolved" into an imperial presidency.
The kind of "presidency" we eliminated in 1781.
He Mr “Feet to the Fire”, your crew said the same thing a year ago. We had to wait till after the election to hold feet to the fire. And here it is in the timeframe you all specified.
And what happens? Someone calls them on their inaction and you want another Issa style delay in the holding of feet to the fire until, after the next election. Pray tell which future election can we carve in stone as the one where feet can be held to fire with no whinning from y’all?
Death from within. I certainly hope the House is waiting for successful GOP takeover in the Senate before they bring forth Impeachment proceedings, otherwise they are failures at their sworn duty and are all deserving of exile or 'a quick drop and sudden stop'...
Help me I think I fell down rabbit hole after I read post by Tulane. Is this person a troll? I don’t want to respond directly to them.
agreed, Issa is a waste of a congressional seat. all the low hanging fruit of 0bama scandals and what has Issa delivered?
Obama, Jarrett, Biden and other prompters are all out of town...so no noose is good noose.
I am not a troll...just somebody who wants to win elections...
Are you a troll?
There is a way to fix this. However it will take having republicans across the board. Do to the libs what Obama is doing to conservatives. Make it so painful that the libs will beg to make things right.
AND DO IT OPENLY. “The IRS went after conservative groups and you in the media did nothing? Well, the IRS will now audit everyone on your staff as well as your connections in government. And since it was perfectly legal under Obama, it must be legal now. Or did you lie?”
Then create a law in which government and the media cannot be in bed together. When Reid demands 67 votes, tell him to pound sand, change it to 51 and implement the law.
I would nuke the entire lib platform to a point where it would be legal to shoot OWS members as anarchists.
No, he’s the typical conservative today. FR and every other site is plagued with that idiocy.
Leftists infiltrated conservatism long ago and set about changing the meaning of the word. His post is the result. He wants to sit at the conservative table as long as he can still play Mr. Moderate in real life. Call him on his ‘conservatism’ and watch him spin out and hit the wall.
Cliven Bundy is Raciss.
When Bush nominated Harriet Myers, did conservatives have the ability to get her nomination shot down in favor of Alito? Yes or no? That, Norm, is called holding a politicians feet to the fire. You can look it up.
When Obama nominated Sotomayor and Kagan, was he worried about conservatives’ reactions?
AFter 2008, when republicans stayed home and refused to vote for many moderate senate candidates...How did that democratic 60 vote majority help us with Obamacare?
We need to win elections...
Yup. President Romney agrees.
They are too busy with Bundy’s latest remarks.
Ok, I am an idiot.
For the record, I have not called you names...but nice muscles there, internet tough guy.
Not addressing my questions...thought so...you’ve got nothing but ad hominem attacks and vitriol...
Good luck with that come election time...
Let me apologize. I’m sorry your support of moderates blinds you to reality, but stupid should hurt.
You don’t really believe in winning fair elections anymore do you?
No point in addressing cases of category error until you see the problem with your statements.
Dear journalists. Here’s another case of a guaranteed Pulitzer Prize for the real story in a sane world. Sorry you missed it. You’d better pray that the adults never get back in charge.
Krauthammer: Democrats will rue the day they stood by while Obama flouted the law [VIDEO]
I completely support you for President in 2016...hell in 2014 ;)
Darrell Issa is a no balls wimp!
I just want everyone to note something here and watch it repeat each and every time someone makes a point about the leftism of the GOP and others agree with it.
As we see on this thread, there is a general acceptance that Issa has at minimum, blown it. the reason why is open to disagreement, but in general, the facts are all there and being discussed.
Every time this happens, a moderate voice of reason appears to explain to us all how we have to ignore what evidence shows us, do nothing about it and get out there election day and vote for more of that.
sure looks a lot like someone has a ‘job’ to do...
It sure seems so. Almost like Karl is with us.
And now poof that voice of reason is gone. Just like a troll to go and hide under a bridge
The networks will protect this regime to the bitter end.
ABC, CBS, NBC: “Nothing to see here, look over there and hear Cliven Bundy’s racial remarks. We’ll have a 3 hour special report on that tonight at 8.”
Lots of ‘Karls” are with us. But they made online buddies to defend them.
No one wants to think their Internet pal might be a political hack spreading the party meme of the day. But some are exactly that.
Well that’s why I wanted your help in case he was troll. I didn’t recognize Tulane but I mostly lurk anyway. I met that Karl a few years ago at a roundtable dinner and stupidly asked him to sign my rush hat. Now I just wanna sell it on ebay. I’m not a party girl anymore, I am an issue girl. I got smart.
Oh BTW, look for people calling for moderation, using leftist memes and words like ‘offended’ ‘racist’ and such, projecting, a fanatical urge to hop from one subject to another and completely ignoring questions while posing questions of their own...then claiming YOU won’t answer their questions( more projection).
Also question why the rock ribbed ‘conservative’ is advocating for things conserves have held as gospel to be abandoned ...if just till after the next election.
that is the very definition of situational ethics. And that AIN’T conservative.
