What’s up with the DOJ?
In today’s Washington Times it is reported:
“[a] government watchdog has found for the first time that confidential tax records of several political candidates and campaign donors were improperly scrutinized by government officials, but the Justice Department has declined to prosecute any of the cases…” [I added the emphasis.] [click here for entire article]
Did you see the words: IMPROPERLY SCRUTINIZED and…JUSTICE DEPARTMENT HAS DECLINED TO PROSECUTE? Why? Hhm…
So tell me, why do government employees (IRS) get a pass for improperly scrutinizing confidential tax records? Should we not check it out? If true, it is a very serious crime.
Here is what should be done: there should be a grand jury investigation to see whether a crime has been committed and, if so, who may have committed it. Instead the Attorney General and the Dept of Justice just give it a pass.
I don’t get it. Why?
Some of the improper access of IRS records is described by the Inspector General as ‘not substantiated by the evidence’ and “inadvertent” — but with the recent IRS history, don’t the American people need a thorough investigation we can have faith in? A grand jury has subpoena power and can find out for sure what did / did not happen! The American people deserve that.
Note: one improper access is apparently substantiated and described as “willful.” How can that one be overlooked?
If you care about this, it is time for you to speak out. Your voice matters. You may not think so, but it does. There is strength in numbers, Tell the Justice Department to investigate these allegations with a grand jury and if Attorney General Holder will not, he should appoint a Special Prosecutor.
The great thing about a thorough investigation is that there is a greater chance that suspicions will be to rest than if you don’t do it. Not everyone will be satisfied but more will with a full investigation than with no investigation.
We need transparency – that includes giving the American people the straight story about the IRS if some are up to no good.
Am I wrong?
PS: how do you “inadvertently” “improperly” access someone’s IRS records?
