The Chicago Tribune, despite its leftist editorial stance, takes President Obama and his administration to task for the IRS scandal.
On May 15, 2013 President Barack Obama condemed "misconduct" at the Internal Revenue Sevice by saying:
"It's inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it. I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives. ... I'll do everything in my power to make sure nothing like this happens again by holding the responsible parties accountable. ..."
The report wonders why Attorney General Eric Holder doesn’t act. Holder will never do anything to cast the slightest shadow on the Obama administration.
Mr. Holder will never designate a special prosecutor to look into the IRS scandal because the result would bring charges of fraud for some and gross misconduct for many others in the Obama administration.
As far as the lost emails: many have said the data is still on servers and that competent IT people could easily find them.
However, it is easily possible, if not probable, that the Obama administration found competent IT people who could track down all of the emails and permanently destroy them.
When the president made his smug "not a smidgen of evidence" comment he may have already received word that all of the incriminating emails had been completely destroyed.
This gives us pause to wonder just how bad it can get once ObamaCare is fully implemented and with the IRS having a big hand in the enforcement of Obama’s socialized medicine.
