Senator: Obama’s “Criminality…Quite Obvious” in Fast and Furious

Fred Lucas, CNSNews.com

A senior Senate Republican has accused the Justice Department of a “cover-up” by limiting information to Congress about a botched gun running program along the southwest border.

“I think they’re trying to cover up now by not giving us all the information that we want,” Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told CNSNews.com.

“In regard to criminality, this is quite obvious there is criminal activity when our own government suggests our own laws ought to be broken,” he said. “Isn’t it just as criminal if we do that, as [it would be] if Chuck Grassley did it as a private citizen?”

Grassley is investigating a gun running operation led by the Phoenix division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and also involving the Drug Enforcement Administration and FBI.

“Operation Fast and Furious,” saw federal law enforcement officials knowingly allow guns to be sold to straw purchasers for the purpose of tracing the firearms, which included AK 47s assault rifles, to Mexican drug trafficking gangs.

The initiative began in September 2009, but was halted after two of the weapons were found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murder in December 2010. Although Operation Fast and Furious ended with the indictment of 20 straw purchasers, no-one from the drug cartels – the primary target of the program – was brought to justice.

The Justice Department assigned the Office of Inspector General to conduct an internal investigation into the affair.

    “Criminality………..Quite Obvious”………..!! duh! When did those lamebrained knuckle heads figure this out?

    Seems to me that this INSULT in office has been overly OBVIOUS for how long, you stupid fools! And when did the light go on in YOUR attics? The rest of us have been watching this horror show and seeing the ILLEGALITIES FOR OVER 2 years now, and it took you THIS LONG TO SEE IT? it has been the ONLY “TRANSPARENT” THING IN THIS ADMINISTRATION”S WHOLE TIME IN OFFICE! The FACT that he has commited so many CRIMES AGAINST THE PEOPLE AND AGAINST THE OFFICE while you dimwitted nitwits have just sat on your asses and done exactly nothing about a one of these CRIMES AGAINST US ALL! Not one of you so called “officials” who were elected into your respective offices have done diddly squat to tend to your constituants! I would not even hire you as a greeter at Wal Mart, you are such lazy employees that you wouldn’t even deserve a penny of any wage that you “earned”! You are not worth the time of day, it would be a waste to throw you all in the garbage and haul you off to the local dump, you would pollute the ground! You are nothing but pollutants and you only pollute the air and area around you each second of every day! My contempt for you is beyond words!!!! I can only hope that the contempt I feel is what the rest of the people in my country feel for you useless tits!!!! For with that contempt, maybe we can get rid of all of you and your polluted ideas and positions, and get someone in there who will not pollute the offices and the air around them. And if we can make it understood that we are sick of lies and being stolen from, clearly enough, the next bunch of “officials” might just do the job that they are HIRED to do! You are supposed to be PUBLIC SERVANTS!!!!!!!! But you serve no one and nothing except yourselves! traitors, and as such, you deserve to be hung from the highest tree in Washington DC! Unfortunately for us all, this country has become too “civilized” and hanging is seen as cruel and unusual punishment by most. Most, but you can leave me out of that number, for it would be the highlight of my life to see you criminals hanging by your useless necks until DEAD DEAD DEAD! As Judge Roy Bean put it, UNTIL HE/THEY are dead, DEAD DEAD!!! for, Death to America is what you traitors are wishing upon this country!!!!!!!! You are killing us one right, one penny, one dollar and one second at a time!!!!!! I only wish the same for you in return!!!!!!!!

    Im going to just chuckle at another crime of Obama's because NO ONE WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET HIM OUT! Wrong is wrong! Has nothing to do with the c o l o r of his skin. The man is dangerous and nothing is being done! Who is on the people's side beside Trump?

  8. This C-SPAN video shows fast and furious was Obama's baby, Holder burped the baby…. http://conservativebyte.com/2011/07/fast-and-furi… Match 24-2009 video.. This video needs perserved for the court hearing which I hope our brain dead politicans set in motion..

  9. EdinNOLA says:

    Senator, there are many things that the administration has done in violation of the Constitution as well as other laws. You folks in congress are the only possibility for the American people to receive justice, that is expose the devious and essentially evil doings of the administration. Please continue.

  10. Edwardkoziol says:

    Obummer knew all about this operation because his main man Eric"stedman"Holder was the brains behind this operation.My fear is nothing will get done because of this guys color, no politician wants to be called a racist and our liberal socialist press would defenitely label any conservative republican a racist who went after the truth,pointing the finger to OBummer.

  11. vpertoso says:

    Of course they are covering up. We are being destroyed from within by design. Obama is fundamentally changing America from a Democratic Republic to Socialist/Marxist State based on the Communist China model. A blind man could see it.

  12. Now there is news out they have also been funneling guns and weapons to the "ZETA'S-obama,holder and Naps need to hang over this,among everything else.
