DOJ Won’t Allow IRS Scandal Investigator to Testify

February 5th, 2014 - 6:07 am

Seems somewhat contrary to the purpose of having an investigation, yes? Nevertheless:

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) asked Justice attorney Barbara Bosserman to appear on Feb. 6, 2014. Rep. Jordan received a response from Deputy Attorney General James Cole saying she would not be appearing.

“The department’s longstanding policy, applied across administrations, is to decline to provide Congress with non-public information about ongoing criminal investigations,” Cole said. “This policy is intended to protect the effectiveness and integrity of the criminal justice process, as well as the privacy interests of third parties. It also is founded upon our commitment to avoiding any perception that our law enforcement efforts are subject to undue influence from elected officials.”

Rep. Jordan wrote back to Deputy Attorney General Cole asking him to reconsider.

What’s needed is a big, fat subpoena and if necessary some big, armed men.

The Ministry of Stern Notes has asked for the purveyors of treason to please reconsider allowing one of the traitors to come in and plead the Fifth for shredding the Constitution.

The good news is that tyranny is being thwarted with the force of a feather and while they are stealing liberty and least they aren't producing any documents to prove it.

To which, Rep. Jordan should reply: "Bullpoop. We know from experience with this administration that its criminal justice process has no integrity and is deliberately ineffective. Keeping your people from testifying therefore protects neither of your stated goals."

But of course, being a 'pubby, he won't.
