Gunrunner: Darrell Issa to subpoena Eric Holder
It’s on! It has just been learned that Darrell Issa will subpoena Eric Holder next week in an attempt to find out what Eric Holder knew about the deadly Operation Fast and Furious and when he knew it. On May 3rd of this year Eric Holder testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee, while under oath, that he did not learn about Fast and Furious until a few weeks earlier, but recently released documents seem to contradict Eric Holder’s sworn statement and it now appears very likely that Eric Holder perjured himself before the Congress while under oath. In light of the release of these documents Eric Holder has changed his story and now claims he misunderstood the question, but this has only cast more doubt on the Attorney General and the truthfulness of his sworn statement.
Issa, who is also a member of the House Judiciary Committee where Holder testified in May that he’d only learned of the program a few weeks earlier, told “Fox News Sunday” that “people in the top” of the Justice Department knew about the operation, were “well-briefed about it, and seemed to be the command and control and funding for this program.”
Issa said those officials, who may or may not include Holder, would have known that the program was facing objections from law enforcement personnel in the field, but appeared to continue to let guns “walk” across the border.
“We didn’t just have a few (guns) not be tracked. The whole program was about not tracking them until they were found in the scene of crimes. And they didn’t just allow. They facilitated just one guy buy, one straw buy, over 700 weapons,” Issa said
This is the crux of the issue at hand; the official regime explanation for letting guns walk into Mexico doesn’t hold water; the “Justice” Department is trying to claim that the guns were going to be traced back to known drug lords and violent criminals, but we now know that the guns were never tracked until they turned up at the scenes of violent crimes, such as the murder sight of Brian Terry.
The Obama regime was not interested in arresting the purchasers of the weapons because they were more interested in proving the 90% lie that the Obama regime floated early on in his administration so that he could use the lie to implement gun control laws on the law abiding American people, so the guns were allowed to walk untraced into Mexico because the best way to prove this lie was to help perpetrate it.
Anybody who denies this statement would do well to remember that this couldn’t possibly be a legitimate police action because once the guns left the country and made their way into the hands of the drug lords in Mexico that the United States government had no jurisdiction to go after the known drug lords. If this were a legitimate sting operation the purchasers of the weapons would have been arrested before the weapons made it over the border while the United States still had jurisdiction.
And then there is the little fact that these drug lords were already known to the United States government, there was no need to help them along in the interest of proving they were drug lords because this was a fact that was not in question; supplying these drug lords with weapons would not have gained the federal government anything unless the true goal was more nefarious than is being let on.
We do know this: At least three people in the White House knew about Operation Fast and Furious and Eric Holder’s “Justice” Department was receiving weekly briefings on the deadly operation. We also know that even as this scandal was unfolding that Barack Obama and Eric Holder denied knowing anything about it even though their minions were informed about it on a weekly basis. It seems highly unlikely that people in the White House and people in the “Justice” Department would be receiving updates on this scandal and not one of these people in at least one of these departments thought there was enough of a concern about the operation to inform their bosses what was going on.
I find this totally unbelievable and evidently so does Darrell Issa and next week Eric Holder will be called upon once again to testify under oath about Operation Fast and Furious. Eric Holder should be squirming right about now; If he now admits that he did know about the operation it will be proof that he did in fact perjure himself last May, but can he afford not to tell the truth in light of the mounting evidence against him?
In my opinion there is only one way for Eric Holder to get out of this; he must admit that he authorized Operation Fast and Furious and he must admit that he did so because he was acting on the orders of a higher power, none other than Barack Obama himself. While he will still be guilty of perjury this will remove the accessory to murder charges that I feel are due to whoever ultimately made the decision that Operation Fast and Furious was a go.
