Despite the fact that justice is supposed to be blind, the DOJ, run by Attorney General Eric Holder, has proven that not to be the case when it comes to the current administration. Most recently, an accident coming from within Holder’s ranks has prove that, Obama, in league with Democrats are working tirelessly to cover up any and all evidence pertaining to the IRS scandal – and the DOJ is helping them.
Alright, so these facts aren’t anything that the majority didn’t already know, but without definitive proof, knowing doesn’t account for much. This holds especially true when it comes to the government as it turns into a “your word against mine” match in which the challenger is certain to lose.
However, exposed in a letter to Holder himself, House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa wrote of the wrongdoings of his office revealed to him on accident. According to Issa, a senior communications aide for the Attorney General’s office, Brian Fallon, called him rather than his assumed target of Elijah Cummings.
Cummings has, being a Democrat, used the power of his position in the past to hinder the investigation into the IRS’ illegalities which is the exact reason it is assumed that the call was meant for him.
According to Breitbart:
According to the letter, Fallon – who is not named in the letter but confirmed he made the call – asked if the aides could release the IRS scandal documents to “selected reporters” to give Fallon an “opportunity to comment publicly on it.”
Fallon explained to Issa aides that the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs had not permitted him to release the documents to the public and he wanted to get ahead of the story “before the Majority” – meaning Issa – could share it, according to the letter.
Issa aides – who had placed the call on speakerphone – were “caught off guard by the unusual nature of the call and the odd request” and asked Fallon to “e-mail the material for evaluation.”
“At this point,” Fallon “abruptly placed the call on hold for approximately three minutes.” When Fallon returned to the call, “he was audibly shaken. He immediately stated that there was a ‘change in plans’ and that there would be no effort” by DOJ to release the material early.
Of course, since the call has been exposed to the public, Fallon, although stating that he did make the call, explains that his intentions were in no way malicious as they’re being played out to be. “There is nothing inappropriate about department staff having conversations with both the majority and minority staff as they prepare responses to formal inquiries. That includes conversations between the spokespeople for the Department and the committee.”
Issa however couldn’t feel any different as he detailed in the letter:
The letter referred to a “subsequent explanation” from Fallon that “he simply called to improve the Office of Public Affairs’ working relationship with the Committee” but said the explanation “is inconsistent with statements and requests he made before he placed the call on hold.”
“It stains credulity to believe that the Department would seek to begin to improve relations via a telephone call between two individuals who had never spoken to each other before at 5:01pm on a Friday afternoon at the end of a District Work Period in the waning days of the 113th Congress,” Issa wrote.
Issa said he is “disturbed” by the “apparently longstanding collaboration between the Obama administration and Ranking Member Cummings’ staff to obfuscate and prejudice the Committee’s work through under the table coordination.”
Now that it’s out there, what should be done about this? The DOJ, whose job is to do nothing more than ensure that the law is followed, has been discovered to be conspiring with the corrupt administration in order to cover up its misdeeds.
If they can’t do the one task assigned to them, then what good are they?
