The DOJ states there is no conflict of interest with an Obama donor investigating the IRS targeting scandal
Recently Ted Cruz sent a letter to Eric Holder asking for a special prosecutor to look into the IRS targeting scandal because the person investigating the scandal was a donor to Barack Obama and the Democratic party.
“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.”
“Specifically, I would ask you to immediately appoint a special prosecutor, with meaningful independence, to investigate the IRS’s illegal targeting of conservative groups.”
“This special prosecutor should be someone whose integrity is beyond reproach,” Cruz wrote. “And, at a minimum, he or she should not be a major financial backer of President Obama.”
The Department of Injustice has responded to Ted Cruz’s request, basically stating that no special prosecutor was needed because well, move along, nothing to see here.
Here is more:
“The Special Counsel regulations, designed as a replacement for the former Independent Counsel Act, provide that, in the discretion of the Attorney General, a Special Counsel may be appointed when an investigation or prosecution by the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest, or in other extraordinary circumstances, such that the public interest would be served by such an appointment,” Kadzik wrote.
“After consideration of your request, in light of the regulatory standard set forth above, we have concluded that such an appointment is not warranted,”
So let me see if I have this correct: Barack Obama is a Democrat who nominated Eric Holder as Attorney General, and Lois Lerner is a head of the IRS who works for the president. Both are also Democrats and Lois Lerner has already admitted the IRS “inappropriately” targeted conservative groups because she was feeling pressure from above to “do something” about the Citizens United ruling. Shen then went on to invoke her fifth amendment right even though she claims she did nothing wrong. The IRS is now investigating itself and the person heading up this investigation was a donor to Barack Obama and the Democrats.
And there is no conflict of interest here?!
What this proves to me is the fact, in my opinion, that Eric Holder, who is the top law enforcement agent in the nation, has no intention on getting to the bottom of any of the scandals currently swirling around the Obama regime. In fact he is working to cover them all up in order to protect his boss.
In addition to all of this the Department of Injustice has refused to take any action against Eric Holder after he was held in Contempt of the Congress for refusing to comply with an investigation into his department.
This whole thing is incestuous.
