Holder Obstructs Justice on Fast and Furious – Plus Even More Coverup?
Numerous reports are surfacing that Boehner and his staff have “slowed the probe being led by the House committee on Oversight and Government Reform” into the Department of Justice’s role in the botched scandal that resulted in the murder of U.S.Border Patrol agent Brian A. Terry. Some are suggesting that Boehner is getting pressure from the FBI and the Obama administration to cool it on the investigation.
But Darrell Issa (R-CA) is just getting warmed up.
After more than a year of stonewalling from the DOJ, and with less than 8 percent of the documents on hand from the “Fast and Furious” scandal, Issa is now uttering the word “contempt” when referencing Holder, and is now suggesting the “Fast and Furious” is politically motivated.
“It is ironic that while the Department’s delay tactics have extended this investigation into a presidential election year, you have had the audacity to characterize it as an attempt at ‘healine-grabbing Washington ‘gotcha’ games and cynical political point scoring,'” Issa wrote to Holder this past Tuesday.
According to Fox News and other outlets, Issa has no intention of backing off the investigation — perhaps due in part to the blistering grassroots response he and his office have endured over these last number of weeks. Instead, he remains committed to bringing everyone involved to justice. “The American people deserve the truth,” said Issa during a recent Fox News interview.
Meanwhile Liberty News is reporting that “Fast and Furious” may have been a “front for a covert operation that went wrong.”
Uncovered emails and CBS News investigative reporters have turned up evidence suggesting that the failed gun operation “was to justify the introduction, and passage of legislation that would create more gun control, in clear defiance and opposition to the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.”
DON, as Rep. Issa has said, “The American people deserve the truth,” whatever that truth may be. But to reveal that truth will take continuous, unrelenting pressure by the American people.
