The Continuing, Sad Saga Of Fast And Furious

Eric Holder 11 SC The Continuing, Sad Saga Of Fast And Furious

The continuing saga of Eric Holder’s efforts to block the release of documents pertaining to the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal has tarred the Department of Justice with a black mark of shame it will not overcome for years.

Yes, the ATF has long been known by most gun owners as a rogue and unconstitutional agency, but this scandal has now made most Americans aware of its unlawful tactics and disrespect for the rights of most law-abiding citizens.

The actions of Attorney General Holder, a man who once said he wanted to brainwash Americans into supporting gun control, have left a bad taste in the mouths of most Americans.There is no doubt that one of the unspoken objectives of Fast and Furious was to forward the cause of domestic gun control. If any Mexican citizens or American law enforcement personnel happened to get in the way? Well, that was just too bad.

The Department of Justice is so out of control that the House of Representatives recently voted to find an Attorney General of the United States in civil and criminal contempt of Congress. This is the first time in the history of the republic that this has happened.

Does this move Holder to cooperate with Congress? No. He continues to hide behind President Obama’s use of executive privilege and has forced Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to file suit in U.S. Federal District Court to perhaps finally get the documents out of Holder and his cronies (that’s assuming said documents haven’t been shredded and deleted from hard drives).

  1. Holder was sleaze when he worked for the other bunch of sleaze— the clintons. He should have been in jail then and should be hauled off NOW in chains and lose the key. There is a goodly number of others including the 'resident, heads of dep't and a large number of congress (both R&D) in jail for any number of charges.

    i hate to say this because I was hoping with all my heart that they would have brought Holder to justice for his role in Fast and Furious but nthe head spook is protecting him.If Romney wins he will still go free,there will be no justice for the Terry family no matter who is preident.
