New Docs Reveal DOJ, IRS, and FBI Colluding to Prosecute Obama Opponents

Documents released today by Judicial Watch show the Department of Justice colluding with the Internal Revenue Service to cook up criminal prosecutions of targeted non-profit conservative groups.

The newly obtained records include an official “DOJ Recap” report detailing an October 2010 meeting between Lois Lerner, DOJ officials and the FBI. The documents also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress.

    I assumed that this type of collusion would have been highly illegal.

      Only for Republicans.

      And Nixon was the asshole.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        I think we might have been a bit too harsh on the man.

    Lovely. That this sort of government criminality against its citizens is taking place in the greatest bastion of personal liberty humans have yet created, the USA, is something that should concern all lovers of freedom, regardless of where they live.

    • It is a sad day.

    • Clausewitz

      The killing off of personal liberty is part of Obama’s, “Taking the nation in a new direction”. This is what he means by fundamental change.

  • mobuyus

    obama is one sinister schmuck.

    • Alain

      No argument there, but it took a lot more than one man to carry this off.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Welcome to America. Enjoy your stay.

    This is the stuff of South American tin-pot dictatorships. And given Obama’s corrupt government, none of the principals will ever be prosecuted for corrupt practices. And former Attorney General Eric Holder is up to his eyeballs in evil sleaze. Yet the “progressives” in the U.S. purposely look the other way. Sad.

      Which is why I don’t call them libs but leftist, a true liberal would be up in arms over this.

      • Clausewitz

        Classical Liberalism died at the hands of LBJ. Now the people who call themselves liberal are nothing more than conniving power hungry corrupt peons.

    Earlier this year I visited the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda and the whole time I was viewing the Watergate exhibit I was wondering whether the Obama Library will be as honest about the current scandals (which in my view injured many more innocent people than Watergate).

    • Obama’s criminal reign is far more damaging.

      • Blacksmith

        And FAR more expansive.

        That’s the point of his presidency; cripple America badly, at the very least, take her down entirely and Obama and bad company will be thrilled.

        Obama’s entire presidency is about payback and in the legal code of the USA has been suspended to make that happen.

  • Blacksmith

    More criminal enterprise from the current administration, I am sure that most every administration has done something illegal but the rate that this admin does is mind boggling. I am sure the new atty gen Lynch will be all over this…..

    The most likely public reaction to this will be “zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.”

      And it’s not just Obama – it’s all three branches, willfully breaking the law and ignoring the Constitution. Sooner or later, as Sinatra says, Something’s Gotta Give.

    Nothing wrong with the DOJ and FBI investigating crimes they’re implicated in, right?
