Gunrunner: Janet Napolitano may have perjured herself in front of the Congress
If this story is correct Eric Holder might not be the only member of the Obama regime who is likely guilty of perjury because Janet Napolitano may have also perjured herself when she testified in front of the Congress on Operation Fast and Furious.
Here is what Janet Napolitano claimed in her sworn testimony:
In her September testimony to a Senate committee, Napolitano told senators she knew nothing about Fast & Furious until after Terry was killed in a gunfight on the night of Dec. 14, 2010 with an AK-47 purchased at one of the gun stores that was one of the key retailers where federal agents actively let guns walk.
In the same month, the Napolitano told Rep. Jason E. Chaffetz (R-Utah) at a hearing held by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that she never spoke to Holder about Fast & Furious.
Let’s take the second one first; according to one source there are five emails linking Janet Napolitano to Eric Holder which discuss Operation Fast and Furious and Brian Terry’s murder.
“When she says that [she] and Attorney General Eric Holder have not discussed it, that is a lie. That’s why they keep asking her those questions in the Judicial, Oversight, Homeland Security Committee hearings. They’ve asked her that same questions twice and she’s lied twice”
The source also makes the point that while Eric Holder might not have given her the details of the deadly operation Janet Napolitano allowed the guns to walk across the border her agency is charged with protecting. It seem to me she would have to know something if she was going to allow guns to leave the country in the hands of violent criminals. Right? This brings us back to the first part in the quotes above, most likely she did know about Operation Fast and Furious:
Another source from the ATF confirmed to Pavlich that Napolitano was briefed regularly by an agent from another of her agencies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE.
“There was an ICE agent assigned specifically to be the co-case agent of Fast & Furious. He had to [file] an ICE report that either mirrored or referenced every ATF report that was done,” the ATF source said.
It seems quite likely that Janet Napolitano may have perjured herself in front of the Congress and it seems quite likely that Darrell Issa already knows this to be the case. At this point I am beginning to lose my patience at what appears to be the lack of action on a scandal which could reach into the inner depths of the Obama regime, and possibly be one of the biggest scandals in the history of the United States. What are we waiting for?
