Cruz Grills FBI Director Over IRS Targeting Scandal: Director Ducks

Ted Cruz and Ronald Reagan

Our friend U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas,really grilled FBI Director James Comey yesterday. Cruz was particularly pointed in several questions about the Obama Administration’s failure to fully investigate the IRS targeting scandal and we think CHQ readers ought to see how evaisive America's top law enforcement was when asked directly about one of the Obama administration's most egregious acts of lawbreaking. 

Specifically, Sen. Cruz asked:

To date how many victims, or alleged victims, of improper targeting have been interviewed by the FBI? More or less than 10 victims?

Can you tell this committee, to date, how many White House employees the FBI has interviewed for this investigation?

The Attorney General appointed to lead this investigation a major Obama donor who has given President Obama and Democrats over $6,000. Do you see any actual or apparent conflict of interest in that?

Do you think it would have been appropriate to trust John Mitchell to investigate Richard Nixon?

Four days after Attorney General Eric Holder told the committee that this was a vigorous investigation, the President of United States went on national television and told the American people, categorically, there was not a smidgen of corruption… [these statements] are facially inconsistent.. which of those statements was true and which was false?

None of these questions were fully answered, which Democratic Judiciary Chairman Sen. Pat Leahy said was “appropriate.”

Leahy’s approval of Director Comey’s response -- it's short and worth the time it takes to watch it. When you've seen the the video, please sign our letter of support to Senator Cruz; it's time to abolish the IRS.
