White House says NO to special prosecutor for IRS scandal

irsThe White House has declared that they will not be appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS scandal that resulted in the political harassment of conservative and tea party organizations.

Asked aboard Air Force One about a Quinnipiac University poll that showed 76 percent of Americans want a special prosecutor to handle the case, White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said the administration isn’t looking at that option

“We’re not,” Earnest said, according to a transcript. “And the reason for that simply is that there is a new IRS commissioner in place, Danny Werfel, who is a career civil servant, who represented — who served in administrations led by Republican presidents and Democratic presidents. He’s conducting a 30-day review.”

The Obama Administration–the most transparent administration in history–wants everyone to move on from what seems to be corruption of the highest order. The reason they offer makes no sense. It doesn’t matter that there is a new person in charge. What matters is that this was allowed to happen throughout the entire IRS! And to think that the IRS will soon be enforcing ObamaCare…

What do you think? Should the White House appoint a special prosecutor.

    I believe that the white house should not appoint a special prosecutor. This is something that should be accomplished by congress, who are our elected representatives, who are supposed to be the mouth piece of the people who elected them. It is time for them to get off their asses and stop being so politically correct and worrying about how they say and what they say and just do their damn jobs! If they can’t, remember there is an election coming soon and they could be gone!!

    Does the White House alone have sole authority to appoint a special prosecutor?

    Having the IRS investigated by the IRS and Holder investigated by himself, yes I can see the true facts coming out on them. If I commit a crime, can I investigate myself? Obama doesn’t want a Special Prosecutor to investigate the IRS because they will find that the order to attack Conservative groups came from the White House.

    What is wrong with Congress? Why in God’s name don’t they start the impeachment process? My husband & I are already thinking of places we can go to have freedom. I feel we’re already a communist US. I’ve had enough. I’m ready to get the hell out of the country I love so much.

      I love this country and you and I are just a few people that care. If you hear some of the under 40 year olds talk, they think we’re the radicals. Even in the schools, they’re being brainwashed.

    Why are we even asking these questions? We already know the answers. Obama and Holder are as guilty as sin as well as the lead of the IRS, Schulman, Lerner and the others within the IRS. What are congress waiting for? Prosecute and get on with our lives. We, the people, and everyone else have suffered enough at their hands. They have proven they do not have our country’s best interest at heart and have done everything they can to ruin it. Everything our Nation holds dear has been destroyed by all these people and you all keep upholding these people by continuing to do nothing to them. I, for one, am sick to death of let’s do this and that before we do anything else. What more proof do you all need to do your job? The proof has been right before your eyes from the get go, just do your job.

      I couldn’t have said it better. I feel we’re already living under communism.
