Journalist Bob Woodward on IRS scandal: ‘There’s obviously something here’
By Renee Nal on April 14, 2014 at 12:39 pm 

Journalist Bob Woodward said to Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday as reported by the National Review, “There’s obviously something here” referring to the IRS scandal despite President Obama’s assertion that there “isn’t a smidgen of corruption” at the IRS.

Clearly, Americans agree with Woodward that there is “something here,” as a poll reveals that a whopping 94 percent of Washington Times readers believe that the Department of Justice should “pursue criminal charges” against the former head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, Lois Lerner.

As reported at the Examiner,

At the time of this writing, 5751 people answered “yes” to the question:

“Do you think the Justice Department should follow the House Ways and Means Committee’s advice and pursue criminal charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner?”

Only 296, of four percent, answered “no.”

Although the recent focus has been on possible criminal charges against Lois Lerner, the truth is that she did not act alone.

As reported today at Forbes, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp lays out the case for a criminal probe of Lerner in an incredibly detailed and must-read letter to Attorney General Eric Holder. Author Christopher Bergin correctly notes that Lerner is a “gift,” as the media focus on her takes the focus away from the systemic targeting of conservative groups.

Bergen writes,

“The bad behavior going on at the IRS – whether it is politically motivated or not – does not stop with Lerner.”

Bob Woodward and fellow journalist Carl Bernstein are best known for uncovering the Watergate scandal, leading to the resignation of President Nixon.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
