Seized phone records? White House staffers? Fox News reporters — plural?
And now the IRS is taking the Fifth?
Because you know, when people start taking the Fifth, you are ON the proper track.
From the UKDailyMail (a foreign news source that I trust):
Top IRS official will invoke the Fifth Amendment in congressional hearing about tea party targeting program
By David Martosko
The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday afternoon that Lois Lerner, who heads up the Internal Revenue Service’s tax-exempt division, plans to invoke the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in a hearing Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Affairs.
The Fifth Amendment provides that U.S. citizens may not be compelled to offer testimony if telling the truth would incriminate them.
Lerner’s defense lawyer, William W. Taylor III, wrote to the committee on Tuesday that his client would refuse to answer questions related to what she knew about the extra levels of scrutiny applied to conservative nonprofit organizations that applied for tax-exempt status beginning in 2010.
This just seems to be getting worse. The IRS, the AP angle, Benghazi, And I find it very difficult not to smile widely at the news, and at the fact that Mr Obama’s tailfeathers seem to find themselves on fire.
The Obama DOJ is doing more to oppress the freedom of the press than the Nixon IRS every dreamed of, or was thought to have done. More ass-covering over Benghazi than Nixon’s bombing of Cambodia.

Sharyl Attkisson’s computers compromised
Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy-award winning CBS News investigative reporter, says that her personal and work computers have been compromised and are under investigation.
“I can confirm that an intrusion of my computers has been under some investigation on my end for some months but I’m not prepared to make an allegation against a specific entity today as I’ve been patient and methodical about this matter,” Attkisson told POLITICO on Tuesday. “I need to check with my attorney and CBS to get their recommendations on info we make public.”
Yes, folks, “way back” at Fast & Furious, the Obama Administration was seeking to stem the information that the American public — American Taxpayers — deserve, as an accounting, of where and how our tax money is spent. Because, make no mistake: these fucktards in DC do what they do only because we fund them. We pay their salaries, we pay them to create laws to oppress us, we pay them to obfuscate and lie and prevaricate and deflect. We pay them to work against the best interests of us: American Taxpayers. Try to wrap your brain around that concept.
The IRS doing what it does best under Obama: oppressing Conservatives and singling them out for . It’s a culture that shows a complete lack of moral fiber — mirroring nothing more than Mr Obama himself. It is a Culture of Intimidation.
Freedom of the Press? Freedom of American Taxpayers whose blood, sweat and tears are funneled to DC?
Sorry maggots, that just doesn’t happen in this administration. Harder work and more of it, taxpayers. Then shut the hell up.
Obama the Imperial and his minions have decreed it so.
