The courts rejected Obama’s claim of executive privilege over these documents, which are still an incomplete cache of relevant Fast’n’Furious documents. Is this the reason for the sudden resignation of AG Eric Holder, an ideologue in Obama’s league and someone who hadn’t shown any proclivity to resign. Until the watchdog group Judicial Watch prevailed in federal courts to force this release. Imagine what’s in the other documents still hidden from public view. Hey, Holder, those documents belong to the American public. We paid your salary, we paid for the equipment and transmission of these documents. We even paid – sadly – for your ill-planned Fast’n’Furious gun-running project which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans by drug cartels, an American border agent shot in the back near our border, and another American border agent of Hispanic descent shot in Mexico while on duty for our nation. There was no attempt to track the guns or prevent them from leaving the US.
More than 64,000 pages -some highly redacted – were released by the DOJ Monday evening.
Funny how liberals and the liberal media constantly berated the Bush administration for ‘transparency’ and demanding access to everything but are conspicuously silent on so many scandals under Obama and provide cover for his blatant lack of transparency. Hypocrites.
DOJ handed over the documents pursuant to a court order. “When Eric Holder wants to know why he was the first Attorney General held in criminal contempt of Congress, he can read the judge’s order that compelled the production of 64,280 pages that he and President Obama illegitimately and illegally withheld from Congress,” Issa said. “Since these pages still do not represent the entire universe of the documents the House of Representatives is seeking related to the Justice Department’s cover-up of the botched gun-walking scandal that contributed to the death of a Border Patrol agent, our court case will continue.”
