Mike Huckabee said last week that a Justice Department investigation that debunked right-wing claims that the IRS targeted conservative groups only confirms in his mind that the IRS was going after conservatives all along.
Speaking with Fox News pundit Todd Starnes, who was guest-hosting the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” radio program, Huckabee said that the fact that investigators didn’t find any wrongdoing at the tax agency proves that the DOJ is covering up the supposed scandal and — like the IRS — has become politicized under the Obama administration.
“That’s exactly what I expected them to do,” he said. “This is a Justice Department that cannot be trusted to really look at things objectively. It’s been a very politically run Justice Department.”
The Republican presidential candidate added that the DOJ’s decision not to press charges in the matter “is just the kind of thing that makes people increasingly frustrated, angry and ready to start the revolution against Washington.”
