The Dam Breaks
I sensed this would be a scandal-ridden administration, and now am vindicated in that assessment. There are now three controversies embroiling Team Obama. The abuse of power by the IRS for partisan advantage is the most significant. The information grab by the Department of Justice from the venerable AP is the second, and the Benghazi cover-up is the third and will linger over the future political prospects of then Secretary of State and presumed Presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton. One of the impeachment charges that brought down Richard Nixon involved a similar use of the Internal Revenue Service to attack political opponents. America has seen Presidential administrations brought down before and may yet witness a special counsel to investigate the excesses of Obama and his underlings.
