President Obama’s Justice Department has just announced that it is closing the investigation into the IRS targeting scandal and that Lois Lerner will not face any criminal charges for her actions.
This faux investigation, conducted by one of President Obama’s top donors, was never going to lead to the truth. For months, we’ve known that the FBI dismissed the idea of criminal charges — prejudging the case before even gathering the facts.
It’s an outrage — a mockery of justice.
There was never any semblance of independence in this supposed investigation. It was a sham from the start. The very Justice Department that was supposedly investigating the targeting scandal was implicated in that very scandal by the very person who was at the center of the scandal — former top IRS official Lois Lerner.
