Well -- to tell the fox thanks but you know what will will watch the -- Welcome everybody I'm Neil Cavuto and here's how bad these scandals are getting from the White House Eric Holder is now investigating.
The attorney general reviewing how is Justice Department went about targeting -- even though we now know it was holder himself -- okay targeting my.
Fox News colleague James Rosen.
Then there's -- -- of the IRS relieved of her duties with pay -- Tea Party group reveals what harassing IRS letter with her signature.
While -- pleading the fifth is there anyone who is pleading for us.
Clearly these agencies and departments can't police themselves and keep reversing themselves.
So maybe they're not the ones to review themselves maybe now is the time to state the obvious.
There's a reason why you can't put the fox in charge of the -- house.
He'll -- everything in the hen house so.
Short of just cleaning house -- -- start to do is policing the house and independent prosecutor to at least look at the -- we're try to get.
To the bottom of desire has -- and it it takes another to look at some of these other -- I don't know Soviet.
Too much time has been wasted on stories that just don't add up as whistle blowers are just -- To talk and reportedly -- are lining up frankly I'm no lawyer but -- -- up because agencies policing themselves seriously seriously that is so.
-- -- A special prosecutor can do well think about it extensively mr.
holder could investigate himself imagine.
Good afternoon mr.
holder I got a few questions for you.
Thank you mr.
holder and I I get to a couple openly coveted first -- start it up or he could have won if he is.
Undulating as that was actually very good thank you already -- -- hold of -- have one of his underlings handle the investigation.
Now son I am the one who hired you right I just want to get a Cadillac -- let's get sort of a if we're talking about fairness if we're talking about the window being able to see and if we're talking about the public us as citizens.
And our elected officials that it makes it makes the most sense to have someone come in independent.
No ax to grind only interested in getting to what happened and conducting a full and fair.
And you let the chips fall where -- -- going to fall.
Well it's also a number Democrats on and off the records on the you know -- that might sound like a good idea do you have but I extension -- zone but down.
Kenneth star went on a witch -- sort of exploring things that went way beyond.
His Whitewater investigation and what was his initial charge and we -- that this would be a political -- Certainly you weren't into two problems that being the first one -- it becomes partisan politics or at least that's the concern but there's one other thing it's the old don't wish to heart.
-- she may get what you ask for.
When you say give me a special prosecutor give me independent counsel.
You now give you our ability to do -- our own investigation did give up that power.
And -- you have to sit back and wait for the results as opposed to.
-- knock yourself that and I'm gonna do my investigation.
And let's see who comes.
Consequences so senate house -- they would have to stop as a special prosecutors during his or affect.
On then the what do you have multiple scandals branded under you have the IRS has -- the Justice Department don't have to reporters.
There's some really getting equally -- -- -- about.
You know what.
Health and human services did hit a private companies to pay for -- publicizing health care law which might be a big I don't know it's debated among wars.
So you couldn't have a need for multiple prosecutors have would you concede that ever happening you would start cottage industry -- -- you could have just the club.
Of active special and I never had anything like that we had a string up prosecutors indicates -- Watergate or in the case.
You just -- dimension with Whitewater but but we've never had.
And handling different different scandals at the same time I.
I couldn't even imagine mechanically because invariably there's going to be some level of overlap.
So who's going to be doing -- what are they going to be doing it what investigative tools are they going to be doing -- -- That's it Democrats are right candidate feared that -- initially going after the IRS invest in what happened.
It it would almost naturally slip into the Justice Department right and then they get on cities reporter -- you know when it just spills over with -- -- sort of -- hit.
Imagine a crime scene where you've got.
Local law enforcement federal law enforcement it turns into a cat but I still argue that is better than what we've got potentially happening.
It's very hard to say it all comes down to what to what you want.
If you -- now he's on every lawyer and on and -- -- it must want the truth.
And you want common sense to prevail and you want to make everyone comfortable it would make sense to bring in one independent counsel to do one job at one time.
If you're really not interested in the truth but you're only interested in bashing and yelling and screaming and pointing fingers and say hey -- the right you're the wrong.
You don't want that and everybody just fights in the sandbox doesn't mind you're all right all right -- -- -- -- for -- There -- no question if you want fairness you want the truth in what impartiality.
You -- to -- going going to sleep at night feeling good about the process.
And knowing that it's really about the truth and not about politics then I don't see where there's -- -- -- choice.
You have multiple Lance is what you do that's -- brilliantly just wants.
You rubble fun I love that don't really serious -- very good seen him in front of the very thank you so very good we can really zone he's good all right now.
