Clinton Adviser Lanny Davis: Time for Independent Counsel to Investigate IRS Scandal

A former White House counsel during the Clinton administration said Thursday that it’s time for an independent counsel to look into the growing IRS email scandal. 

Lanny Davis, a close adviser to Hillary Clinton and a frequent defender of the Obama Administration, appeared on my morning talk show in Washington, D.C., on WMAL. I asked him to comment on the latest hearings on the lost IRS emails conducted earlier this week in Congress:

If this were a Republican administration I’d be saying when hard drives have been obliterated and this recent Lois Lerner—I think very inappropriate, maybe innocent but completely inappropriate—’maybe we should look at Mr. Grassley’ uh … there’s no Democrat that I know of that wouldn’t be asking a Republican administration to conduct an independent investigation.

I asked Davis if he meant a special prosecutor should be appointed and he argued that a special counsel reporting to the attorney general would be sufficient. “Yes, there ought to be another look at this by somebody that President Obama chooses to appoint who’s independent,” Davis explained, “or at least the Republicans would see as independent.”

This tool is proposing this solely as a means of providing cover for Clinton in 2016.  He has no intention of supporting an independent counsel that would in fact get to the bottom of things, but rather an ersatz, rigged "independent" counsel who would find just enough "truth" - and do just enough covering up - to make Clinton look good and to provide an incentive for weak democrats in Congress to throw in their support with Clinton in 2016 rather than with any of her potential competitors.

The last thing he's interested in is the real unvarnished truth in all its naked ignominy.
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI
