The FBI has not contacted one Tea Party group since the alleged IRS investigation began.
“We have not been contacted by any federal investigative agency and, to date, none of our clients have been contacted or interviewed by the FBI,” Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice told The Daily Caller on Thursday. The ACLJ has filed suit against the IRS on behalf of at least 25 conservative groups.
“I have been very surprised that I have not heard from anybody and frankly, none of my clients have. I talk to other tea party leaders on a regular basis,” said Cleta Mitchell, the lawyer largely credited with pushing the IRS abuses to the forefront.
Tea Party groups with thousands of chapters have not been contacted.
It’s no wonder because Robert Mueller, who is the FBI director in charge, does’t even know who is heading up the investigation. In fact, he knows nothing about anything like the rest of the administration.
It is reasonably safe to say that there is no serious investigation underway. Our only hope is with Congress and the courts.
Meanwhile CNS News is reporting that over 1,000 IRS employees have misused government credit cards and wrote 325 bad checks. That is according to the Inspector General’s audit report for 2010-2010. The media is NOT reporting it.
CNS News has a story today about the IRS hiring ull-time “Supervisory Diversity and Inclusion Specialist” at the agency’s national headquarters in Washington, D.C – for a starting salary of $123,758 a year. There are generous benefits attached. This would be unnecessary, and probably still is unnecessary, if they simply didn’t target people with whom they disagree.
