Outrageous!… FBI Has Not Contacted a Single Tea Party Group in IRS Investigation
Earlier Thursday Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) confronted FBI Director Robert Mueller on the agency’s investigation of the IRS. Mueller had no idea who’s running the investigation, how many people were assigned to the investigation, where the investigation stood, and if any Tea Party groups had been interviewed.
He was clueless.

The Daily Caller reported tonight that there is no evidence that any of the 500 targeted conservative groups have been interviewed by the FBI.
There is no evidence that the FBI has contacted a single tea party group in its criminal investigation of the Internal Revenue Service, according to the groups the IRS abused.
“We have not been contacted by any federal investigative agency and, to date, none of our clients have been contacted or interviewed by the FBI,” Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice told The Daily Caller on Thursday. The ACLJ has filed suit against the IRS on behalf of 25 conservative groups, with additional groups being added in the next couple weeks, according to a spokesman.
“I have been very surprised that I have not heard from anybody and frankly, none of my clients have. I talk to other tea party leaders on a regular basis,” said Cleta Mitchell, the lawyer largely credited with pushing the IRS abuses to the forefront.
