Somebody please contact the DOJ and tell them a Republican at the IRS shut down a couple of lanes on the Arlington Memorial Bridge and maybe things will move along a little faster.

From Fox News:

The FBI has so far found no evidence that would warrant the Justice Department filing criminal charges in its investigation into the IRS targeting scandal, federal officials confirm to Fox News.

The findings, which were first reported by The Wall Street Journal, could intensify the debate over the scandal, in which the IRS allegedly targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups applying for non-exempt tax status for special scrutiny.

Officials told the Wall Street Journal that thus far, investigators have found no evidence of the type of “enemy hunting” that would warrant federal criminal charges being filed. The officials say what they have found instead is that mismanaged bureaucracy inside the IRS was enforcing rules it did not fully understand.

Accusations of the IRS targeting Tea Party groups had already been declared a “phony scandal” by Team Obama, so, as Ace pointed out here, all that was needed was an investigation to match that previous finding.

The head of the probe is a Justice Dept. lawyer and Obama/Dem donor who apparently thinks Lois Lerner only took the Fifth at a congressional hearing because she had laryngitis.
