Eric Holder "cleared" of wrong-doing in "Fast & Furious" by an Obama admin "investigation." Think this was a true exoneration of Holder, or just a cover-up attempt that should be rejected as such by Republicans?

I don't see anything in this report mentioning Issa's investigation, so I must presume that either Issa sold-out by allowing Obama to cover up, or else Issa's investigation is still in progress:

If you know anything regarding whether Issa is still proceeding with his investigation, please share it with us.

    Just a despicable gross excuse of a human being. American voters you better get your heads out of your butts and kick Darrell Issa out of office! While the country and President Obama face terrorist attacks. The country was losing 750,000 jobs a month because of the Bush/ Cheney policy. Republican are attacking the country and Republican obstructionist in Congress plan to do NOTHING! To correct the mess Republican create! Then there Darrell Issa attacking Eric Holder for NOTHING!

    It is outrageous and down straight disrespectful of democracy and disrespectful of American taxpayer’s money! But it should be “NO” big surprise, Darrell Issa is ignoring the Inspector General's report on Fast & Furious and instead is pushing forward with his crusade against Attorney General Eric Holder. This just prove that Darrell Issa is not out to find the truth. Darrell Issa is after Eric Holder and trying to tie Eric Holder to President Obama. Darrell Issa wants ti disrespect the President!

    I didn't hear that he was exonerated. I heard they couldn't find evidence where he was DIRECTLY, PERSONALLY involved.....ah, for the love of shredders. There is a difference between being found not guilty (which he was not) and being innocent. Murderers go free all the time. Look at Casey Anthony.

    As AG he IS responsible for what occurs in his Department. Legally it is called "Implied Knowledge". In the instant case.,it has been reported the existense of damning Emails from and to Holder on the matter. He KNEW!

    No one in this administration accepts responsibility for anything. You would think, THAT would be enough for ppl not to reelect this POTUS. Then add the the rest of the scandals and I just don't see why Oblahblah has such a loyal following. It defies common sense to the wall.

    A investigation in which the investigators are investigating thier boss? I never thought it would expose any high up responsibility, and it did what it was meant to do, and that was to let Holder off the hook during election time.

    Issa isn't backing down, Look below and see my links under some of the remarks.
    Issa's said today(in part) "“The Inspector General’s report confirms findings by Congress’ investigation of a near total disregard for public safety in Operation Fast and Furious. Contrary to the denials of the Attorney General and his political defenders in Congress, the investigation found that information in wiretap applications approved by senior Justice Department officials in Washington did contain red flags showing reckless tactics and faults Attorney General Eric Holder’s inner circle for their conduct.
    “Former Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer who heads the Criminal Division, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein, Arizona U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke, and Holder’s own Deputy Chief of Staff Monty Wilkinson are all singled out for criticism in the report. It’s time for President Obama to step in and provide accountability for officials at both the Department of Justice and ATF who failed to do their jobs. Attorney General Holder has clearly known about these unacceptable failures yet has failed to take appropriate action for over a year and a half.”

    It was clearly a coverup of Eric Holder committing crimes, basically on behalf of the current administration. Of course he was going to be exonerated, they could not let the charges stand and save face all at the same time...

    {The Inspector General has indicated he will continue his investigation of matters related to Operation Fast and Furious, including retaliation against whistleblowers and an effort to have the Justice Department unseal wiretap applications sealed by courts that were approved by senior officials. The Congressional investigation will also continue to seek documents wrongfully withheld from Congress.}

    If this was an "exoneration" of our Indonesian-in-Chief's boss mouthpiece, then Heinrich Himmler was retroactively provided "exoneration" for the Final Solution.

    Whatever happened, it's not like they purposefully made it happen. Unlike the outing of Valerie Plame, which several people got off scot-free for. Now that WAS premeditated and done out of sheer spite.

    People died because of Holder. He has Brian Terry's blood on his hands. Valerie Plame was a joke and still is.
