(FOX NEWS) Republican lawmakers, frustrated by the Justice Department’s slow-moving probe into the IRS targeting scandal and “conflict of interest” concerns, are now calling for the investigators to be investigated.

Reps. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on Wednesday formally requested that the Justice Department’s inspector general launch his own probe into the department’s review of IRS activities.

The request marks a serious escalation of their complaints about the department’s conduct and, specifically, a decision to have a President Obama backer lead the investigation.
