we shall see; the FBI is still part of the Just-Us Department, after all.

We can look forward to a vigorous, independent and unbiased investigation, under the direction of Eric Holder.

I wish I could laugh, but it's too much of a tragedy for that.

"JONATHAN TURLEY: Well, I think that the biggest problem we have is that the system itself, if we have a dominant branch, simply begins to shut down in terms of the safeguards. People don't seem to understand that the separation of powers is not about the power of these branches, it's there to protect individual liberty, it's there to protect us from the concentration of power. That's what is occurring here. You know, I've said it before, Barack Obama is really the president Richard Nixon always wanted to be. You know, he's been allowed to act unilaterally in a way that we've fought for decades."

Both Nixon and Obama sought to use the IRS against their political opponents. With Nixon it was spelled out as a charge in Article 2, of his impeachment.

Unfortunately the over zealous GOP ruined the usefulness of impeachment, going after popular Clinton, for relatively minor indiscretions, IMO.

Now with truly serious violations of public trust, the GOP cannot use impeachment, lest the public punish them in the elections.

seek and ye shall find.  that is God's own truth there.  I like the analogy of Obama to the president Nixon wanted to be; that succinctly draws the (frightening) parallels between the two.

It is useful politically. Nixon is almost universally condemned for his scandal.

Politically some democrats might pay attention, to comparisons of Obama to Nixon, made by a respected liberal like Turley.

For November 2014 voters need to be made to fear democrat power, and see Republican power as the means to block Obama.

"I like my democrat opponent. He is a nice man. But he will vote with Obama almost every time. And we need to prevent that. Obama simply has too much power, too much corruption, and too many scandals."

Yeah. Would the AG have to sign off on this?

not necessarily on the investigation, although he could quash it if he wanted to, but probably on any decision to prosecute, which would be done by a USA, not the FBI.

If Obama's name pops up in any way as a problem, you can bet your sweet bippy this will be quashed or the information "lost."
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
