FBI hasn’t contacted a single tea party group in IRS probe
No wonder Robert Mueller made a complete ass of himself. He couldn’t remember anything, including if the FBI had spoken to any tea party groups that were targeted by Obama’s IRS. Turns out there were no tea party groups contacted by the FBI. Instead, the FBI is just dragging it’s feet as usual, hoping the IRS scandal (and others) just fade away and people forget about them. With a complicit media, and an uninformed electorate, this strategy may work. No one seems to talk about Fast and Furious anymore when Obama scandals are mentioned.
There is no evidence that the FBI has contacted a single tea party group in its criminal investigation of the Internal Revenue Service, according to the groups the IRS abused.
“We have not been contacted by any federal investigative agency and, to date, none of our clients have been contacted or interviewed by the FBI,” Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice told The Daily Caller on Thursday. The ACLJ has filed suit against the IRS on behalf of 25 conservative groups, with additional groups being added in the next couple weeks, according to a spokesman.
“I have been very surprised that I have not heard from anybody and frankly, none of my clients have. I talk to other tea party leaders on a regular basis,” said Cleta Mitchell, the lawyer largely credited with pushing the IRS abuses to the forefront.
“It’s been a month and I can’t see any evidence of an investigation of the IRS,” Mitchell told TheDC Thursday. She represents nine tea party groups targeted by the IRS.
Tea Party Patriots — a group with thousands of local chapters — “has not been contacted by the FBI” either, according to Jameson Cunningham, the group’s spokesman.
