Group At Center Of IRS Scandal Has Never Been Interviewed By FBI Investigators
No one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht.
This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.
When I raised Holder’s assertion to Engelbrecht Monday morning during an interview on WMAL radio in Washington, DC, I asked her what her involvement and experience has been with the FBI and the DOJ, considering Holder’s claim that they were doing a “good and professional job” investigating the IRS scandal.
The continuing saga of the most criminal administration in American History.
Would you believe, another crashed hard drive?
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday made yet another request to the federal government for details about a crashed hard drive that may have contained information allowing criminal charges to be brought against a federal official.
Issa’s newest letter concerns the hard drive of April Sands, a former employee at the Federal Election Commission who resigned in the spring after admitting to violations of the Hatch Act. That law puts restrictions on the ability of government officials to conduct political activities while on the job, or from government offices.
Issa noted that while Sands admitted to violating the law, the FEC just recently told Congress that it could not recover her hard drive, which made it impossible to seek criminal charges against her.
“Recent information obtained by the committee suggests that the FEC OIG could not pursue criminal prosecution for the misconduct because the attorney’s hard drive had been recycled by the FEC,” Issa’s letter said.
As a result, Issa asked the FEC to provide information to his committee by July 28. That includes all documents related to the hard drive loss, and documents detailing the FEC’s practices for retaining information on computers.
The FEC is an independent agency, but Sands’ emails clearly indicated she favored Obama’s re-election in 2012. Before the election, she tweeted things like:
“Our #POTUS’s birthday is August 4. He’ll be 51. I’m donating at least $51 to give him the best birthday present ever: a second term.” In another tweet, she said anyone supporting Republicans is her “enemy.”
“The bias exhibited in these messages is striking, especially for an attorney charged with the responsibility to enforce federal election laws fairly and dispassionately,” Issa wrote.
The problem at the FEC is the third high-profile technical glitch that House Republicans have probed in the last few weeks. In late June, Issa’s committee was told by EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy that some emails may have been lost related to a decision blocking a proposed mining operation in Alaska.
And of course, the IRS told Congress it lost more than two years of emails from Lois Lerner, the former IRS official in charge of tax exempt organizations.

White House asks Darrell Issa to drop subpoena
You would need a heart of stone not to laugh..
A rocket fired from Gaza hit electricity infrastructure in Israel that supplied power to Gaza, cutting power to about 70,000 people in Gaza.
Media then blames Israel for plunging Gaza into darkness…
Johnny is an American. But he is over here. And he will be staying here. Why? Well, you see 64 year old Johnny is a convicted drug dealer…
His gang flooded Ipswich, in Suffolk, with crack cocaine and heroin, raking in £3,000 a day. He was jailed for seven years in 2007 for his role in supplying heroin and crack cocaine. Part of a gang of 10, he was snared in 2005 following a two-year operation by police.
Home Secretary Theresa May ordered his deportation in 2011 after his release. But Johnny is a diabetic who also has high blood pressure, and he said that he and his depressed girlfriend could not afford US care. So, he CANNOT be deported and we must accept that he remains amongst us. The European Court of Human Rights has determined in his favour and we have to accept this as being right. Once again the ECHR is the friend and companion of every criminal and terrorist and idler going…
The brave heroes of the IRA and the things they did.
Thousands of people have attended a concert to mark 25 years since an IRA bomb killed 11 Royal Marine bandsmen in Deal, Kent. A massive blast at the Royal Marine School of Music in 1989 killed 10 bandsmen and injured 22, one of whom died a month later.
The anniversary is on 22 September, but when the Marines left the town in 1996, they promised to return each summer. They pay their respects and play on the memorial bandstand every year. The bomb flattened a three-storey accommodation block and caused widespread damage to nearby homes. Most of the victims of the Deal Barracks bombing were teenagers. No-one has ever been convicted over the deaths.
Get that? No one ever convicted of this grotesque mass murder. Yet the IRA godfathers that presided over this are now feted by the British establishment and preen as statesmen. The remains of their victims lie long since put to rest and evil has been allowed to prevail. In this world, you all have a choice. You can look the other way and whistle as you walk on by OR you can stand with those who confront EVIL and the murderous scum who carry it out.
It’s shocking to see what has been happening to Jewish people in Paris as the Hamas supporting muslims take to the streets and firebomb as synagogue.
A firebomb was hurled at a synagogue near Paris, part of a string of anti-Semitic incidents in Western Europe coinciding with Israel’s assault on Hamas in Gaza. The firebomb went off Friday night at the entrance to the synagogue of Aulnay-sous-Bois, a northeastern suburb of the French capital, according to the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA. No one was hurt and the fire resulted in minor damage, Le Monde reported.
Well, since no one was hurt, I guess that is OK, perhaps just a little “high spirits” on behalf of “youths”? Furthermore..
On July 8, the day that Israel launched Operation Protective Edge against Hamas in Gaza, a man described as having a Middle Eastern appearance assaulted a Jewish 17-year-old girl on a Paris street near the Gare du Nord train station by spraying pepper-spray on her face, BNVCA also reported. The girl, identified by her initials, J.L., wrote in her complaint to police that the man, who was in his 20s, shouted: “Dirty Jewess, inshallah you will die.”
France has a problem. Muslims make up around 10% of its population and so when Israel dares defend itself against Hamas rockets, muscle is flexed sending a clear signal to Hollande and co that Islam does not back down.
Perhaps most remarkably of all, the UK media is not covering what is happening just a few miles across The Channel. Well, we have a rising Muslim population too…
I was intrigued by the fact that the BBC saw fit to bring us this touchstone item. It’s entitled “The shopping secrets of the Taliban” and appears to be little more than a pathetic attempt to give a human face to these savages. What next? “Al Queda share their beauty secrets’?
So the Germans have just won the World Cup. I hear that worldwide tv viewers (whatever that means) voted Mario Goetze man of the match.
Worldwide tv viewers are clueless. Goetze scored the winning goal, but he didn’t come onto the pitch until the second half. Bastien Schweinsteiger was the man of the match, by miles.
And that’s democracy folks. Even when the evidence is clear in front them, most people still can’t choose right.
