Issa: FBI impeding inquiry into IRS targeting of conservative groups


LINK

quote:

The House’s 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 Committee’s 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 auditor’s report revealed the tax agency had improperly targeted tea party groups for special scrutiny.


quote:

Six months after it began, the FBI’s investigation has resulted in no release of information. The congressmen said the FBI even rescinded an offer for an in-person briefing with the assistant director in charge of the investigation. The reversal, after the FBI consulted with the Justice Department, suggests political meddling, the two investigators said.

“The department’s tactics have impeded a congressional investigation and interfered with the committee’s access to documents and information. Obstructing a congressional investigation is a crime,” Mr. Issa and Mr. Jordan said in their letter to Mr. Comey, warning that if they don’t get the information they will use “compulsory” means.

I was wondering when Issa or another Republican like Trey Gowdy was going to state that the FBI was completely politicized by Obama and the dems as every other department has been.
It is truly disgusting and sad what is taking place and how few are even aware.

I have assurances from Rexella that with the present people in charge of the decisions at the highest level this would not be the case. Mr. Holder would never sink to accusations such as these. Do you need some guns that I can ship to you? Do you need some undocumented laborers for any construction projects for cheap bucks?

If there was no targeting, wouldn't the administration want everything to come out and show that they didn't target?

Obama said his would be the most transparent administration ever. Surely he did not lie?

To much smoke in the air to determine if there is a fire.

Now threatening subpoenas?
Threatening?
Wow.

Why threaten?
Why not just STFU and do it?
Quit whining and issue subpoenas!

DI has been an incredibly inept disappointment in an Oversight Role. Despite Issa being right, Obama rolls him on every issue he's brought up.

The guy needs to shut his mouth, and do his damn job. He needs to shut the leaks down. He needs to focus on the conduct of appropriate investigations --- no holds barred. If someone is uncooperative, subpoena their ass. Then publicly rake them over hot coals. If they cooperate, compliment them for it.

Issa continues to bring his patty-cake hands to a knife fight.

re: Issa: FBI impeding inquiry into IRS targeting of conservative groups


These hearings are almost comical now.

NOTHING has come from the IRS debacle, Benghazi, F&F and countless others. What is the point of this shite if nothing ever gets accomplished? For people to feel important? Are Issa et al just soft?

They are necessary to keep the public aware of it. The worst thing that could happen would be for this stuff to be ignored.

I suspect that they are timing the bombs to go off right before the election, NC. An electoral point or two, here and there, in the nick of time, can translate into a big swing of power.

BTW...frustrates me too. The Dems take of the gloves...and the Republicans whine about it.

This and many other subjects being discussed in a judicial hearing right now.

Happening now- the House Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on the President's constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws.

Cohen was embarrased in the beginning almost like he was given that to read by the BCC or Obama admin.

I think Trey Gowdy is on this committee. Waiting for him.

They should put me on the committee. I'd get to the bottom of all that shite with the quickness - Benghazi, NSA, Fast and Furious, who killed Kennedy, why Lavergne and Shirley was cancelled and why the administration suppresses the existence of BigFoot.

That is not his job.

His job is to investigate and let the chips fall where they may.
If he wants to politicize that role, screw him.

Why WAS Laverne and Shirley and Green Acres cancelled?
