Clinton Advisor Says an Independent Prosecutor Is Needed for IRS Scandal
Lanny Davis, a Clinton advisor, agrees with Congressional Republicans that a special prosecutor should be appointed for the IRS scandal.
Davis says “no Democrat that I know of” wouldn’t ask for an independent investigation if Republicans were in charge.
Davis referenced the disclosure that IRS official Lois Lerner proposed investigating Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) after she received an invitation intended for him. The invite mentioned providing accommodations for Grassley’s wife.
“Looked like they were inappropriately offering to pay for his wife. Perhaps we should refer to Exam?” Lerner wrote to a colleague in 2012…“It was completely almost yucky to read what she wrote,” Davis said. “If that were known by her superiors, she should have been fired.”
If that’s true, it looks like the IRS’ harassment of Tea Party groups is just the tip of the iceberg of serious wrongdoing. A special prosecutor is definitely needed.
