Bossie: A Special Counsel Should Investigate the IRS, Not AG Eric Holder

Washington, DC — Citizens United President David N. Bossie issued the following statement in response to Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement his Department of Justice would investigate the Internal Revenue Service scandal.

“In light of the recent news involving the Department of Justice subpoenaing the phones of the Associated Press, its imperative a special counsel investigate the ongoing IRS scandal. It shouldn’t be too much to ask that a department currently involved in a major national scandal be investigating a scandal in another department.” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “We are calling for an independent, special counsel to investigate the Internal Revenue Service as well as the Department of Justice Scandal. The fox cannot guard the hen house.”
