Criminal Charges Not Expected in IRS Probe

The FBI doesn't plan to file criminal charges over the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups, the Wall Street Journal reports, "a move that will likely only intensify debate over the politically charged scandal."

"The officials said investigators didn't find the kind of political bias or "enemy hunting" that would amount to a violation of criminal law. Instead, what emerged during the probe was evidence of a mismanaged bureaucracy enforcing rules about tax-exemption applications it didn't understand, according to the law-enforcement officials."
