Holder telegraphed this one a mile away when he put an Obama donor in charge of the investigation.

WASHINGTON — The Federal Bureau of Investigation doesn’t plan to file criminal charges over the Internal Revenue Service’s heightened scrutiny of conservative groups, according to law-enforcement officials, a move that likely will only intensify debate over the politically charged scandal.

The officials said investigators didn’t find the kind of political bias or “enemy hunting” that would amount to a violation of criminal law. Instead, what emerged during the probe was evidence of a mismanaged bureaucracy enforcing rules about tax-exemption applications it didn’t understand, according to the law-enforcement officials.

While the case is still being investigated and could remain open for months, officials familiar with its progress said it is increasingly unlikely any criminal charges will result. That could change, the officials cautioned, if unexpected evidence is discovered that alters their thinking.

With this year’s midterm elections heating up, the FBI’s decision will feed both parties’ stories about why—or whether—the IRS scandal mattered.

Since the outset, Republicans have voiced skepticism that the Obama administration would properly investigate itself. Last week, Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, challenged the impartiality of a Justice Department prosecutor handling the case because she had made donations to the Obama campaign.

They don't think they need to pretend - they believe they've reached critical mass.

And given the results of the last two elections, perhaps they have

Imagine putting a MAXIMUM donor in charge of the investigation?

It couldn't happen without the lapdog press and a immoral populace.

Sad isn't it? I'm just wondering how far we're going to have to fall before folks start to literally fight back, not just rhetoric and griping on the internet. I've been wondering this since 2008 and every year just keeps getting worse and worse. Will it take being hauled off to camps if you don't bow to the crowd in D.C.? I can't help but wonder how bad its going to have to get.
