The IRS has placed her on paid administrative leave.
Update: Here’s a Mark Steyn column about Lois Lerner signing off on, and backdating, the tax exempt status of a foundation run by the president’s brother. He also notes that you have no fifth amendment rights when it comes to the I.R.S.
The Justice Department has labeled Fox News reporter James Rosen a co-conspirator with Stephen Jin-Woo Kim. Kim was charged with violating the Espionage Act for divulging classified information. The feds used the co-conspirator charge to violate Rosen’s first amendment rights. They snooped through his personal email account, phone records and his parents’ phone number. The way Eric Holder’s Justice Department sees it, asking questions about classified information (i.e., journalism) is illegal.
Kirsten Powers reminded readers that the Obama administration and its posse have had it in for Fox News from the get go, insisting that Fox isn’t a real news operation. Much of the mainstream-media remained silent on that charge though Jack Tapper would be an exception. When Tapper asked where the White House got off saying thousands of Fox employees don’t work for a media organization Jay Carney replied, “that’s our opinion”.
Obama recently told Ohio State students not to question authority. Looks like he really meant it.
The Department of Justice is providing tougher oversight of the AP than it did of its own ATF during the Fast and Furious scandal.
FBI agents thought they had 48 hours to extract terror information from Boston Bomber suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev. They were surprised when a federal judge strolled into his hospital room and read him his rights. The judge’s drop by was initiated when the Justice Department (home of the FBI) filed charges against Dzhokar.
Dzhokar’s dead brother, Tamerlan, once said that he didn’t have any American friends because he didn’t understand them.
Dzhokar, on the other hand, seems to understand Americans just fine. He immediately shut up.
