Eric Holder had his off the record meeting yesterday with those news organizations willing to submit to an “off the record” requirement, ensuring no tough questions would be asked and that a message would emerge that Holder cares deeply:
Holder and aides “completely endorsed the president’s statement that reporters should not be at legal risk for doing their job,” said Martin Baron, The Washington Post’s executive editor, who was among the participants. “They acknowledged the need for changes in their own guidelines and the need to have a more rigorous internal review.”
Trust him! Meanwhile, maybe the IRS targeted conservatives for audits as well as closer scrutiny of tax-exempt status.
If I had to place a percentage on my confidence level that this happened, it would be somewhere in the high 90s. There is already rampant evidence of questionable audits. All we need is the admission.
