Holder implicated in IRS Cover Up
Laws? I don't need no stinking Laws!!
J. Russell George, the inspector general who audited the IRS has claimed he turned over evidence of criminal behavior that the DOJ refused to press charges on. Among George's claims was that politicians were targeted for audits and that confidential donor and candidate tax information was accessed.
Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, questioned whether these breeches were politically motivated. He also asked if the sun rose in the east and if McDonalds sells hamburgers.
George pointed out one case where information was willfully accessed against the current US law and in his letter to congress said, "we presented evidence of a willful unauthorized access to the Department of Justice, but the case was declined for prosecution."
This is hardly the first time Eric Holder has refused to prosecute a case against democrats and liberals. He also refused to prosecute the two New Black Panthers, who committed voter intimidation, even though career attorneys at the DOJ, strongly recommended it.
Holder has also refused to prosecute Wall Street big wigs like Jeffrey Katzenberg, Jon Corzine, and the board of Solyndra, all large contributors to President Obama's campaigns. On the other hand , he is sending out signals that he intends to investigate George Zimmerman for civil rights violations even though Florida State prosecutors and the FBI could find no such racism in his past.
Sen. Grassley has written a letter to Eric Holder asking him why no prosecution took place, who made the decision, and why. Conventional wisdom says that Grassley should not hold his breath, while waiting for an answer.
IG George says his office is still investigating charges that donors and candidates were targeted for audits by the IRS. Several republican donors have stepped forward, complaining they were targeted after contributing to republicans.
