Gunrunner: Darrell Issa to subpoena Eric Holder

October 9, 2011

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.

    Democrats should have been doing this. I’m afraid this will be painted as a partisan thing and that the “jobs bill” should be what Republicans need to work on.

      You are probably right but I think as more comes to light on this scandal it will be hard to paint this as a partisan attack. And I also don’t think that the American people want the jobs bill to pass, so that could hurt the regime’s angle of attack also.

    The amount of wiggle room Eric Holder has left himself is rapidly dwindling. I’m not sure how he will try to get out of this; can he refuse to testify before Congress? I am also afraid that Harrison may be right. This is going to be painted as a partisan attack by the Republicans. They need to be ready to counter that accusation.

      I don’t know if Holder can refuse to testify but if he does it will look like he is guilty and I don’t think he can afford that at this point. I am not worried about this being painted as a partisan attack because I think we are reaching the point where nobody can dismiss the gravity of this scandal.

      I am not sure if he can refuse, but we know he can STALL! He and The One can also start up with a new crisis to put this one on hold, at least for awhile.

        Yes he certainly is an expert at stalling, isn’t he?!

        Steve, I think we just found his new crisis with your post today up top. Who knew it would come so fast and that AG Holder would be right on top of it with squashing it before it could take place?!?! What a guy, what control he has, what a great AG!

        Yes, this news will be used as a deflection by the media to ignore F&F for a few days in an attempt to take the heat off of Holder but it isn’t going to work.

    “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.”

    Or the Mexican authorities would have been part of the sting and there would have had to been tracking devices embedded in the guns to track them, This was never about arresting drug lords, was it? Many people have died and claiming he was ignorant of what was really going on is not going to cut it. Holder is either the most inept Attorney General in history or he is an accomplice to the murder of hundreds of people.

      That is a great point but all indications are that Mexico was not informed of this and that leads us to believe that this was never a legitimate sting.
