Attorney: Feds not interviewing IRS victims


'The FBI and Justice Department haven't talked to any witnesses in this case'

The attorney for many conservative organization alleging illegal and unconstitutional treatment by the IRS says the Justice Department investigation into the misdeeds is a non-existent “sham” and the malfeasance goes far deeper than most Americans are aware.

The debate took on new life Sunday when President Obama told Bill O’Reilly of the Fox News Channel there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” committed by the IRS, that the issue had been thoroughly investigated and the only culprits were a couple of low-level staffers in Cincinnati who improperly applied the law.

Cleta Mitchell was one of several witnesses Thursday before a House hearing into the alleged IRS abuses. She says the president could not be more wrong. First, she asserts there is no completed investigation and she’s not even sure one ever existed.

“I have not been contacted until, interestingly enough, about two hours after I submitted my formal testimony which outlined all the things that if the FBI ever bothered to call me I would actually tell them. It became clear to me that the Democrats on the committee are calling and talking to the Department of Justice and getting information. I think that they had the Department of Justice call me. I still haven’t spoken to them,” Mitchell said.

“I know they haven’t talked to any of the organizations. I would have heard about that because I deal with so many of these groups on a regular basis,” she said. “So the FBI and the DOJ have not talked to any of the victims or the witnesses in this case and yet the president announces blithely on Sunday the conclusion of the investigation.”

  1. Will retributions begin soon? Will that get their attention? Perhaps something needs to (get their attention).
