Not since Richard Nixon have we seen a president who puts together an enemy's list and has a whole team.
Pursuing it I think congress should address that tax loophole for entities that really are not charities going to an organization.
And it basically helping him spin a story I think is over the line and certainly for the Justice Department he clearly -- -- -- smelter right.
In the wake of the exposing of being coordinated emails between the department of justice and the tax exempt organization media matters Washington is buzzing joining us now is founder and editor of the daily caller on Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson.
-- was -- first broke the story Tucker nice to see you this morning.
You say you have that you have evidence.
That this is basically that the media matters has become an all arm of the Obama administration or that they are act.
Acting as an arm of the Obama administration take us through exactly what you guys on -- Well that's right I mean going back several months till we broke the story that media matters has -- quarter needed meetings with the White House the press operation in the Obama White House.
Going back three years in order to coordinate the message and make it more effective on behalf of the Democratic Party in the Obama administration.
Up until last week when we uncovered a trove of seven pages of emails between the Justice Department spokesman for -- Wheeler and various writers -- media matters.
In which she's suggesting stories mostly based on.
Are reviewing a Fox News.
And they carry out those stories so there's a coordination here that's I think beyond dispute and the problem is.
That violates the most basic tenant of tax exemption which is that you remain nonpartisan race -- dead issue is that tax exempt status of taxpayers basically right footing the bill.
For an extension.
Of the Obama reelection campaign is that fair to say exactly that's exactly right that's is that -- enough -- -- nobody but grudges.
Any organization nonprofit or for profit.
It's political views and when you're allowed to have views about politics of course but you're not allowed to remain tax exempt which is as you pointed out basically a subsidy from taxpayers.
If you're working for a political campaign and media matters without question is and that's why there -- a number of members of congress who has.
Raise this question publicly and I believe there's going to be.
Pressure on the IRS to to rethink the tax exempt status of this person group.
He -- on some of the emails between media matters in the Department of Justice going back to 2001 and you can read this media matters.
-- -- -- to Tracy smaller hi Tracey I'm working on.
Tracy Schmoll events -- media matters here's what I got back from the budget folks writes back.
Matt birch from media matters to Tracy -- thanks again for your help on this here's the piece and then sends them the actual written up piece.
Finally south -- the coordination to me.
A world I don't that there there's absolutely no other way to read it and that part of the tragedy here is the Department of Justice is a serious department of government I mean.
I mean this is not.
You know the department of nonsense this is the this is probably most powerful of all agencies run all the law enforcement the federal level in the United States.
And the fact that their spokesman is spending her time helping some left wing political activists rather than.
Explain to the public -- the DOJ is doing is -- basic subversion of their mission I mean that you can't do that.
And underscores a frustration with the Department of Justice recently given the fast and furious scandal people's heads -- -- not paying attention what was going on exactly Anderson -- emails to media matters Tucker do you think -- the congress is going to be it's a movement on this and actually be able to call for.
Media matters tax exempt status to get removed.
Well I do think so because it's it's just it's absolutely true egregious.
And so yes I I believe within the year they will lose their status for sure Tucker Carlson always great to see is -- FOX & Friends.
