Congressman Issa explains to Holder he is no longer playing games with his obstruction and lies in Operation Fast and Furious

DOJ’s Request for Fast and Furious Subpoena Deadline Extension ‘Ignores the reality that the Department has unreasonably delayed producing these documents to the Committee’

Many have been working, making contact with Congressman Issa’s offices asking that he answer the charge that he has been bowing to the orders of Speaker John Boehner, and hasn’t forced the issue of Holder’s February 9th subpoena. As the letter put up today on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committed states below nothing could be further from the truth.

Soon to be X-Attorney General Holder, throws his hands up in frustration showing is difficulty in keeping his lies straight.

WASHINGTON. D.C. – House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) today, in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, wrote that the Justice Department’s request of an extension for completing its document production on Operation Fast and Furious again “demonstrates a lack of good faith” and a Department “more concerned with protecting its image through spin control than actually cooperating with Congress.”

AG Holder’s Office Knew that BP Agent Brian Terry Had Been Killed by a Fast and Furious Weapon, the Day it Happened, a lie Holder can’t run take back. 

“The Justice Department’s request for additional time has, unfortunately, not been followed by efforts to bridge the significant differences between its legal obligation to Congress and the reality of its stonewalling,” said Chairman Issa on sending the letter that chastised the Justice Department for its lack of cooperation and declining to grant the request for an extension. “The committee is determined to know what happened in Operation Fast and Furious and how the Justice Department responded when it was publicly confronted with evidence of reckless conduct after Agent Terry’s death. If the Justice Department cannot commit to providing, at a minimum, a detailed description of documents it is withholding, and the legal basis for doing so, then the committee has no other option than to move forward with the contempt process against Attorney General Holder.”

The letter outlines lingering unanswered questions about Operation Fast and Furious including:

• Exactly how and when did senior Department officials learn the truth of what happened?

• Did Department officials retaliate against whistleblowers?

• Why did Department officials decide to move forward with prosecuting old cases involving highly objectionable tactics when line prosecutors had refused to do so?

• Why did senior Department officials fail to see the clear connection between Fast and Furious and prior flawed operations they have admitted they knew about?

• When did the Department first learn about Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer’s February 2011 suggestion of gunwalking, and why did the Department wait so long before telling Congress about it?

• A year later, will the responsible senior Department officials be held accountable?

  1. I really really want Issa to kick butt on this investigation. Time these people realize you can’t lie and get away with it. Or set up the entire US to take a fall more lying and deciet. sickening

  2. Holder needs to be arrested now removed from office, sent to jail awaiting trial.

  3. A different version and use for “Don’t Ask — Don’t Tell” …
    I have worked for attorneys who have practiced — the above statement DADT when they KNOW they will be questioned later in court.

    But! But this man KNOWS.

    He pulled the same stunt when it was his JOB to read the AZ Immigration Bill. “I haven’t read it”…and he probably hadn’t. He KNOWS you cannot be accountable IF you didn’t read it.

    HOWEVER, since it IS the top cop? It is HIS RESPONSIBILITY and HIS ALONE to KNOW.

    The bottom line? This was a ploy to TAKE OUR GUNS and it has backfired. Most Americans are responsible gun owners — Obviously, no one in Washington is a responsible as the normal gun owner.

  4. lock them all up, it’s a communist ploy to disarm honest citizens, obama and holder can be butt buddies in the same cell, not saying they weren’t before, holder had to EFF someone to get his current job!

  5. Why is this man(HOLDER) still in the DOJ’s office?? I do not get it. If this was a republican he would have been gone along time ago.

  6. I’m not real sure it was just to make a gun grab deal attack at the 2nd Amendment .
    It could be linked to an attempt to escalate violence in the Border region to a point that illegal’s flooding North would receive Refugee status under the UN Human rights Act. that would Force the US to accept them under humanitarian guidelines.
    The thing to remember with the Obama /Clinton/Carter follow the same pattern with there Agenda assaults are always three pronged attacks with each working aware of the other prong but no knowledge of details and a lot of HollyWood as a smoke screen .

  7. Come to think of it , If you were to take a plan like this to the Nobel Prize committee they would probably give you the Prize in advance

  8. Well this is my first. I am frustrated and angry that Holder can sit , in front of an investigating committee and lie thru his teeth. Where is the outrage and the demands for justice. Is justice and accountabilty for the common masses only? I beleive this is a plot to take our guns away from us so we are no longer a free country. CONTROL The Obamaniks or sheeple follow blindly as the jews did in nazi germany all the way to the ovens; God rest their souls. As they build more FEMA “relief camps” when are people going to wake up to the loss of our freedoms. Now we have NDAA which willbe so easy to impliment once our guns are confiscated. REsearch the countries that implemented gun confiscation and see the genocides that took place. WAKE UP AAMERICA! If Obummer geets reelected I will never vote again. It confirms what He said himself ; “that the american people are stupid’ and maybe they have to be led by their hands by the goverment and fed , clothed and sheltered. I hope I’m wrong. GOD help us if I’m not……..

  9. I am sure Eric Holer knew and Obama knew they wanted to do this to make it looke like the gun dealers decided on their own to sell those guns to the Drug Dealers. It was found out by a whistleblower that ATF was told to let those guns go, and so they decided to say they did not know about this project. They know if they admit to it, they will be put out of office. So, just like Obama they lie and and refuse to send anything too incriminated to the Committee. The ATF people did not decide to do this without being told from some high up. Holder probably send an undeling to tell them so he could not be identified as telling the ATF to do that. But anyone with common sense know Holder and Obama conceived the idea and why. They wanted a reason to try and get rid of guns in America.

  10.
