Then why doesn't the Trump administration charge them with something? I am not defending the Demos, I am just pointing out the RW logic doesn't work (shocker) with their conspiracy fantasy stuff now that they are in charge. Either there is nothing to the made up outrages, or the Repubs are simply too incompetent to bring charges. Which is it?

Because there are bigger fish to fry?

A public apology was made, and if memory serves me right, some money was distributed to those organizations inconvenienced because of the targeting.

Your two listed selections aren't the only possibilities out there, but nice try anyway.

I have no clue what you are referencing here.

Apparently, you don't understand the 'bigger fish to fry' idiom.

To have more important or more interesting things to do or attend to. It's really not worth my time;

It is obvious why Trump administration isn't going after all the fantasy right wing outrages Obama and Hillary supposedly committed the last 8 or so years, becaue there is no evidence, it has all been mindless right wing fantasy silliness. But hey, sure, he is busy.

You obviously didn't read the link I provided, so I can't provide any further help for your side step.

The issue was acknowledged, apologies were made, payments were made, the issue was stopped, testimony made.

Exactly what additional acknowledgement do you require? Unlike some groups, there isn't always a necessity to continue bleating about a done deal.

And since you believe that there has been no action, contrary to reality, all I can say is have a good day.

Love it, you set up a false dilemma, criminal charges or there is no evidence then attack the mean old RW as incompetent. You did realize the thread is about Lois Lerner and her sidekick wanting to suppress their testimony from public release? Not surprising you are incurious as to the content of their testimony but instead insist gathering evidence before criminal charges are filed shows incompetence.

Oh wait, the House committee the IRS corruption filed 2 criminal referrals with Obama's DOJ based on evidence gathered during their investigation. True to their partisan loyalty the DOJ simply ignored them. But now we should just flush the blatant use of the IRS as a political weapon down the memory hole because the Obama loyalists are afraid of having the truth come out.

Cash settlements do not change any election out comes. And are therefore worthless in repair to the damage done to our election system. But, we have more important things to worry about than something which factually DID happen to our elections,,,;. Like the Russian-Trump connection.

You sound like you are not wanting to believe the fact that Russia was involved in our election.
