Gunrunner: Eric Holder asks the court not to order the release of Fast and Furious documents
When the Fast and Furious investigation began to close in on Eric Holder (and possibly Barack Obama himself) he ran to the president and begged him to use his executive power to seal the documents Darrell Issa and Charles Grassley had been trying to gain access to for over a year, and naturally Barack Obama obliged him.
As you can read about in the article I linked to above this move actually led to more questions about what the Obama regime was trying to hide in this deadly scandal.
Judicial watch issued a Freedom of Information Act request last June but the Obama regime has failed to comply with this request so they have sued the Obama regime in an attempt to force compliance with FOIA.
Getting beyond the Obama administration’s smokescreen, this lawsuit is about a very simple principle: the public’s right to know the full truth about an egregious political scandal that led to the death of at least one American and countless others in Mexico. The American people are sick and tired of the Obama administration trying to rewrite FOIA law to protect this president and his appointees. Americans want answers about Fast and Furious killings and lies.
And last week Eric Holder appealed to the court for a “motion of stay” to indefinitely stop the court from forcing the Obama regime to comply with the FOIA request. What is interesting here is the fact that the Injustice Department did not claim that national security or state secrets would be in jeopardy by such a request, but rather that there was already another lawsuit in process.
The only justification Holder uses to ask the court to indefinitely delay Judicial Watch’s suit is that there’s another lawsuit ongoing for the same documents – one filed by the U.S. House of Representatives
Once again this leads to more questions than answers and it makes one wonder what exactly the Obama regime is trying to hide. It has been my contention since the very beginning of this deadly scandal that the Obama regime was trying to create a crisis to exploit in order to gain support with the American people for more gun control laws by proving the 90% lie but unfortunately for the regime this plan was derailed with the deaths of Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata. (And just for the record I predicted that the Obama regime was going to use the 90% lie as justification for gun control before the news of Fast and Furious broke as can be seen in the link above.)
The irony of the regime’s new push for gun control laws in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre coupled with the lack of transparency in their own gun running scheme was not lost on Judicial Watch:
It is beyond ironic that the Obama administration has initiated an anti-gun violence push as it seeking to keep secret key documents about its very own Fast and Furious gun walking scandal
Barack Obama is now claiming that we need to usurp the second amendment to protect the children from gun violence, but he didn’t give a damn about the 14 teenagers who were murdered as a result of Fast and Furious, which tells us that this really has nothing to do with protecting the children and has everything to do with his anti-second amendment agenda. He sees in Sandy Hook an opportunity which he had hoped to create with Fast and Furious and he intends to exploit it.
He is dancing on the graves of the Sandy Hook victims and their families and I find it more than appalling.
