The IRS Scandal, Day 894

IRS Logo 2Wall Street Journal, Mrs. Clinton Gets a Pass:

PauL Gigot:  Kim, what did you make of President Obama’s comments about the email scandal, saying there was no intent, no national security problem, No. 1; No. 2, there was no intent to violate federal law. Was that a signal to the FBI?

Kimberly Strassel:  It was an enormous signal to the FBI, saying back off, don’t go after the woman who was likely to be our nominee.

By the way, Paul, this is a habit of the president. Think about it. He did the same thing back when the FBI was supposedly investigating and is still supposedly investigating the IRS scandal. It only took a few months after the revelations about the targeting that happened that he came out and was dismissing it. Within a few months of that, he had declared there was not a, quote, “smidgen of corruption.” Now, there is no way for him to know, just as we assume there’s no way he knows about what has actually happened with Hillary’s server. This isn’t him giving information. This is him giving orders.

In Obama's press conference with the South Korean President, he made it very clear that he choose what topics like this he talks about very deliberately.

The federal bureaucracy is being politicized by this administration. Obama, Lerner and their minions make the Nixon guys look like boy scouts. Where's the MSM? It looks like the media is as politicized as the bureaucrats.

Kim Strassel nails it, the FBI was ordered not to investigate the IRS scandal. Koskinen should be impeached!
