Gunrunner: DOJ blames the Congress for the department’s reluctance to turn over Fast and Furious documents
We saw firsthand last week the depths that Barack Obama will sink to in order to spread the blame around when he actually had the gall to blame both China and the Congress for his failed green energy initiative which cost the taxpayers $500 million when Solyndra went bankrupt, and the Obama regime is at it once again in the Fast and Furious debacle.
The Department of Justice is actually blaming the Congress for not making it possible for the Department of Justice to release the subpoenaed documents the Congress has requested, and is also claiming that the Congress is to blame for the department’s failure to hold anyone within the department accountable for the deadly scandal.
The Department of Justice has accused the Congress of leaking previously released documents to the media therefore, the department claims, it can no longer hand over sensitive documents related to the scandal.
Darrell Issa is not happy:
It is troubling that the attorney general continues to express the outlandish view that his compliance with lawful and binding subpoenas is merely optional.
Darrell Issa has previously threatened to hold Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress, but when Eric Holder missed the deadline for turning over the documents Darrell Issa backed down and gave him a second chance. The new deadline was never announced, and as far as we can tell there is none, leading many to speculate that John Boehner put the brakes on Darrell Issa’s investigation.
With the Department of Justice’s latest letter to Darrell Issa it is quite clear that the department has no intention of handing over any more documents related to the murderous scandal and it is time for Darrell Issa to either put up or shut up–it is time to hold Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress. If he does not we will be forced to conclude that John Boehner is indeed trying to slow down Darrell Issa’s investigation.
