Let’s all be very clear: The FBI did not conduct an “investigation” into the IRS scandal.
Not unless there are new protocols for investigating potential unlawful activities, which discard the quaint notion of speaking to the victims.

Last week, we learned that the head of the “probe,” Barbara Bosserman, is a donor to Obama campaigns and the Democratic National Committee. This is, someone who could hardly be trusted to understand what all the fuss is about.
