For instance, our initial review of the documents shows the DOJ and White House targeted then-CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson:
On October 4, 2011, Holder’s top press aide Tracy Schmaler tells White House Deputy Press Sectary Eric Schultz, “I’m also calling Sharryl’s [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer. She’s out of control”
Schultz responded, “Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG.”
Schultz also detailed to Schmaler that he was working with a journalist (Susan Davis, formerly of the National Journal) to target Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA), the House Republican leading the charge on Fast and Furious:
“And I sent NJ’s Susan Davis your way. She’s writing on Issa/FandF and I said you could load her up on the leaks, etc.”
(Davis authored a critical profile of Issa a few weeks later.)
This one email chain implicates both the Obama White House and the Department of Justice in an effort to secretly undermine a congressional investigation and to suppress critical media reporting of the Obama administration. No wonder Obama waited until after he was safely reelected (and even after this year’s elections) to finally release this material that documents obstruction and abuse at the highest levels.

It's great they've found this, but what are going to do about it. Evidence is nothing without punishment. If this goes the usual way, they may possibly form an exploratory committee to investigate the idea of forming a committee to investigate maybe possible wrong doings by possible wrongdoers.
It's this way every time one of the scum get caught. Stall, deflect and lie, till it's forgotten or we move on to the next scandal. None of them will ever get fired, much less spend a day in jail.
