Democrat Hack, Working for Department of Justice's Office of Public Affairs, Accidentally Calls Daryl Issa's Office And Asks For Help In Spinning IRS Scandal

They're all working hand-in-glove.

But they're also incompetent.

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa's staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder.

The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine.

Issa believes the call was intended to be made to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cumming's staff, the ranking member on the oversight panel, the letter said.

According to the letter, Fallon -- who is not named in the letter but confirmed he made the call -- asked if the aides could release the IRS scandal documents to "selected reporters" to give Fallon an "opportunity to comment publicly on it."

You'll have to read the rest of the story at Breitbart as I can't excerpt it all. Basically, after Fallon was asked to email his request, he realized he had misdialed, put the call on hold, and when he returned to the call, said there was a "change in plans" and Justice would not be seeking an early release of documents (avoiding the word "leak," I'm sure).

The claim is now that this is all a misunderstanding -- he'd actually intended to call Issa's staff, for the purposes of improving the working relationship between DoJ and Congress.

Mm-hm. I guess that stuff about a strategic leak, and a conspiracy between the IRS, DoJ, and Congressional Democrats to spin the investigation, was just misunderstood.

Remember, it is Obama's and Holder's position that the Department of Justice is not compromised in this matter and can investigate IRS wrongdoing itself, without need of a Special Prosecutor.

It just so happens that the DoJ is coordinating with Democratic Congressmen to arrange selective leaks in order to spin the story for the country.

But other than that -- they're completely impartial and can be trusted to investigate this matter.

Meanwhile, the IRS, which is also completely impartial, is auditing Breitbart News.
