DEPARTMENT OF (IN)JUSTICE SHOCKED BY ISSA'S FINDINGS.
Yo'Adrienne..AFCL 2012/06/07 20:06:51
Just learned that Attorney General Eric Holder will appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today (June 7). It is expected Chairman Darrell Issa will confront Holder with explosive new evidence regarding the botched "Fast and Furious" gun tracking scandal.
With contempt charges moving forward, and word out now linking the murder of a prominent Mexican attorney to the botched "Fast and Furious" weapons debacle, it's not been a very good week for Attorney General Eric Holder -- and it just got worse ...
Rep. Darrell Issa dropped a bombshell of his own with claims that secret wiretap documents show Holder's people knew all about "Fast and Furious".
Issa said the wiretap applications by "top DOJ officials indicat[es] that they knew about, and should be held responsible for, not stopping the most controversial aspect of the botched gun-tracking operation."
This latest evidence runs counter to Holder's longstanding claims that the DOJ was unaware of what was happening in the botched gun walking scandal. But most surprising was the DOJ's response. When confronted by Issa, DOJ officials had the audacity to ask where he got the applications since they were supposed to be sealed by a court order.
Thanks to the effortsof Rep. Issa and continued grassroots pressure calling for justice the shroud is lifting on this scandal -- one that has claimed the lives of hundreds of Mexican nationals, a U.S. Border agent and now Mexican attorney Mario Gonzalez Rodriguez, the the brother of the former Chihuahua state attorney general.
In the latter incident, the DOJ waited 8 months before alerting the Mexican government about the tie to operation "Fast and Furious."With this evidence, will this scandalous chapter be brought to a close? Will those responsible be brought to justice? Will the families of the slain victims finally have closure?
Only if "We the People" demand it!
Please drop your representative an email.....and tell him to support Rep. Issa.

As a law-abiding citizen of the United States, I support the efforts of the 100 members of Congress who are calling for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation. During his tenure as Attorney General he repeatedly demonstrated a lack of competence, accountability and honesty -- culminating in the “Fast and Furious” gun walking scandal.
Throughout the investigation, Holder has been an obstruction to truth and justice. The American people and the nation deserve better from federal officials .
