Angry Holder Walks After Fast and Furious Question at Presser

Attorney General Eric Holder held a press conference yesterday to discuss a foiled terrorism plot. One reporter found the nerve to ask a question about the Fast and Furious “gun running” scandal. Holder took the tried and tested Bill Clinton method to answer by saying he was complying with the inquiry and was busy with the important business of his office.

General Holder apparently thinks he can walk away from any responsibility for the Justice Departments involvement in the scandal. Not so fast says Republican Darrel Issa:

A key House Republican characterized Operation Fast and Furious as the full responsibility of Attorney General Eric Holder, in shooting back at the embattled Justice Department chief’s claim he told the truth to Congress about his knowledge of the botched gun-tracking program.

“Whether you realize yet or not, you own Fast and Furious,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, wrote to Holder in a letter released today. “It is your responsibility.” —Chron.com

Two Texas Congressmen, Republicans Ted Poe and Lamar Smith have called for a special counsel to investigate whether Holder misled congress in earlier testimony on May 3rd. Congressional subpoenas are expected this week asking for correspondence that Justice Department officials had with the White House about the gun trafficking operation. Investigators also are interested what information was shared by Justice officials in Mexico.

  1. I see no reason why the House can’t appoint their own “special investigative counsel” with subpeona powers, to investigate in an interrogation setting versus open Congress. Sometime open hearings are not the best way to proceed, but I don’t think they need the president’s approvale to do it.

    • I think Holder is going down one way or the other.

      There’s a lot of meat on this bone and Issa isn’t about to let it go. When they sort through the next doc dump I think we’ll find this was not incompetence but on purpose.

      The question of the day is, does the paper trail reach into Hillary’s backyard or maybe even the WH?
