ABCs of IRS mess: Justice Department is tainted, too
In an op-ed for New York Post, Micah Morrison, Judicial Watch’s Chief Investigative Reporter, discussed how the Department of Justice’s investigation into the IRS scandal has been compromised. He tied that discussion into Loretta Lynch’s nomination hearing in the Senate this week, emphasizing that Lynch, if confirmed to become the next US Attorney General, should appoint a special counsel to investigate this scandal. DOJ Civil Rights Division’s Barbara Bosserman was asked to lead the investigation, yet she has no experience to do so and would bring bias to it as an Obama and DNC donor.

Here is a snippet of Morrison’s article, summarizing the status of the DOJ investigation into the IRS scandal:
In fact, we still don’t know how far up the political food chain the malfeasance goes. Among other things, investigators are still pouring through tens of thousands of e-mails uncovered months after the IRS had insisted they were lost.
But we do know the Justice Department investigation has been compromised, not least by the president announcing its conclusions before the probe is complete.
