DOJ says no indictment for Lois Lerner, but sticks it to Menendez

Powered by Topple

In what should come as a shock to no one, the Department of Justice has declined to indict Lois Lerner but did decide to indict New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez.

The DOJ found that former Lerner, the former IRS official who was behind the targeting of tea party groups, didn’t waive her Fifth Amendment rights when she made a statement to Congress in June.

But, surprise, surprise, Eric Holder’s politicized prosecutors did find enough reason to indict Menendez, a Democrat who has been a thorn in the administration’s side on the issues of negotiations with Iran and illegal immigration, with 14 counts of corruption.

Interesting how that worked out.

The irony, hypocrisy and what appears to be a blatant reward-your-friends-and-punish-your-enemies strategy was not lost on the Twitterverse.
