Obama’s intervention in FBI investigation is fine, says Carney
Of course it’s fine. Don’t want them to find any more scandals!

White House spokesman Jay Carney Monday waved off concerns over the president’s prime-time public interference in the FBI investigation of the Internal Revenue Service.
“Obviously we do not interfere with Justice Department investigations,” Carney said when he was asked about President Barack Obama’s statement just before the Super Bowl that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in his IRS’ decision to deny routine fundraising rights and legal protections to tea party political groups during the 2012 campaign.
Besides, said Carney, Obama’s statement is reasonable. “What we have learned through the independent Inspector General and through the testimony that we’ve seen completely backs up what the President said,” Carney told ABC’s Jon Karl.
