Issa: FBI impeding inquiry into IRS targeting of conservative groups

The House’s chief investigator says the FBI is stonewalling his inquiry into whether the agency and the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative group True the Vote for special scrutiny, and Rep. Darrell E. Issa is now threatening subpoenas to pry loose the information from FBI Director James B. Comey Jr.

Mr. Issa, California Republican, and Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, are leading the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s IRS inquiry. They also said the FBI is refusing to turn over any documents related to its own investigation into the IRS, which began in the days after an auditor’s report revealed the tax agency had improperly targeted tea party groups for special scrutiny.

Six months after it began, the FBI’s investigation has resulted in no release of information. The congressmen said the FBI even rescinded an offer for an in-person briefing with the assistant director in charge of the investigation. The reversal, after the FBI consulted with the Justice Department, suggests political meddling, the two investigators said.

“The department’s tactics have impeded a congressional investigation and interfered with the committee’s access to documents and information. Obstructing a congressional investigation is a crime,” Mr. Issa and Mr. Jordan said in their letter to Mr. Comey, warning that if they don’t get the information they will use “compulsory” means.

They set a Dec. 16 deadline.

    More proof that this administration is anything but transparent. If all is on the up and up, as they claim, WHY HIDE IT?? Come on Judges, there must be one honest one among you that can serve papers on this fake POTUS and demand real, certified, papers be brought before a court, this has ruined moral among true Americans.

    As long as the democrats have control of the Senate, DOJ and can
    exert pressure thru their appointed minions in public office the investigation
    will be thwarted at ever opportunity. They will outright lie and laugh about
    it in the face of Congress because they know nothing will be done.
    Congress has become a joke, perhaps that is why they only have a
    6% approval rating if it is that high.
