View Full Version : Issa: Holder 'Absolutely' Knew About 'Fast & Furious' Earlier Than He Testified

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R.-Calif.) told CNSNews.com in an interview that he believes the Justice Department is covering up information relevant to a congressional investigation of an operation in which the department knowingly allowed intermediaries of Mexican drug cartels to purchase guns at licensed firearms dealers in the United States and then get away without being arrested or the guns being retrieved.

Last December, two of those guns ended up at the scene of the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was killed by alleged agents of the Mexican drug cartels.

Issa pointed to two things he says indicates a Justice Department cover up. First, he cites a letter that Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich, head of the Justice Department’s office of legislative affairs, sent to Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Feb. 4, 2011. Issa characterizes that letter as a “lie.”

Secondly, Issa says the Justice Department made excessive and unjustifiable redactions in documents it provided to his committee.



Holder needs to be arrested and put in prison along with anyone else that knew of and participated in this INCREDIBLY STUPID fraud.
Mr. Big Britches (Holder) thinks he can get away with anything (just like Obama) and then run away from it and claim no knowledge of it nor responsibility when something goes wrong. They are the worst kind of cowards. What pitiful ninnies these two are!

Somebody needs to be fired, who's it gonna be?
Waterboard holder!
In 2006 a law was passed which requires the senate to confirm the ATF Director. Bush's nominee was held up and never confirmed. Obama placed Kenneth Melson in April 2009 but still no confirmed director is in charge. Melson is a temporary acting director. So Holder wants us to believe he new nothing, and a rogue "acting", temporary director took it upon himself to hatch this scheme. And this acting director ordered the field agents to just let the guns go after purchased by the straw buyers. And once across the border the guns were lost as to their whereabouts. Do you believe this? Holder is the ultimate "yes" man. He comes across as not to bright. He is Obama's personal sock puppet. This goes all the way to the top.
