Let's keep the facts straight. The DOJ did not wiretap the phones, they subpoenaed phone records. This would show telephone numbers and lengths of conversations but not the conversations themselves. Still, one has to be concerned about the scope of the subpoenas.
Did you notice Eric Holder "recused" himself. This was simply away to avoid responsibility. He is good at that.
On the IRS scandal, the administration is trying to minimize it by relatively low level employees in one office (Cincinnati). Again, trying to place blame on the underlings. Where have we seen that before?
