WH: No Need for Special Prosecutor

IRS Scandal

Repeating the White House’s stated position on Sunday’s This Week (ABC), White House senior adviser David Plouffe said that there was no need for a special prosecutor to investigate IRS targeting of conservatives. Plouffe also dismissed massive popular support for a special prosecutor. “People should be concerned about the IRS, it touches everybody in America,” he acknowledged. But, he said, “If people knew that the Department of Justice was engaged in a criminal investigation, you had Treasury undertaking the IRS a 30-day review, you have any number of congressional committee spending an inordinate amount of time on this … This is going to be looked in thoroughly, as it should be.”

Plouffe neglected to mention, of course, that all of the executive branch investigations of the executive branch create a certain conflict of interest. Instead, he said, “The American people want to know is what is going to happen in terms of accountability, what changes are going to be put in place.”
