Gunrunner: Valerie Jarrett was a key player in the Fast and Furious cover up

October 24, 2014

 project-gunrunner-graphic Yesterday Judicial Watch began coming forward with some of the information contained in the Vaughn list which a Federal judge ordered the Department of Injustice to release.

  In yesterday’s article we were informed by Judicial Watch that some of the documents Barack Obama sealed through Executive Privilege were personal correspondence between Eric Holder and both his wife and his mother. This seems to indicate that Eric Holder has some kind of direct connection, if not with the scandal than in the cover up. 

  Today we have learned, in what will probably not surprise too many regular readers of America’s Watchtower, that it appears as if Valerie Jarrett played a major role in the cover up.

President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious scandal, according to public records obtained by Judicial Watch.

Practically lost in the 1,000-plus pages of records is an index that shows Jarrett was brought in to manage the fact that Holder lied to Congress after the story about the disastrous gun-running operation broke in the media.

  The Vaughn list does not contain the content of the documents, it is only a list of the documents which have been sealed, so how can Judicial Watch possibly make this connection. The dates tell the possible story:

The files received by JW include three electronic mails between Holder and Jarrett and one from former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke to Jarrett. The e-mails with Holder are all from October 4, 2011, a significant date because, on the evening of October 3rd, Sheryl Attkisson (then at CBS news) released documents showing that Holder had been sent a briefing paper on Operation Fast and Furious on June 5, 2010. The paper was from the director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, Michael Walther.

This directly contradicted Holder’s May 3, 2011 testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, during which he stated that he, “probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” The October 4, 2011 date may also be significant because it came shortly after the August 30, 2011 resignation of U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke and reassignment of acting ATF director Kenneth Melson to the position of “senior forensics advisor” at DOJ.

 The day after Sheryl Attkisson released documents which proved Eric Holder lied to the Congress Valerie Jarrett became involved in direct email communication with the beleaguered Attorney General. Coincidence? I doubt it but in case you need more we can take a look at the subjects of the emails:

The description of one of the e-mails, written from Jarrett to Holder, reads, “re: personnel issues.” Another, also from Jarrett, reads, “outlining and discussing preferred course of action for future responses in light of recent development in congressional investigation.”

  What do you think the latter email was about if it was not to plan a course of action after Eric Holder had been caught lying to the Congress?

    So, Valerie gave the stand down order in Benghazi and now it appears she’s part of the cover-up on Fast and Furious. My memory is a bit hazy, Steve. Remind me by how many votes did she win the presidency?

      I am pretty sure she did not get any votes, but she sure seems to have a stranglehold on the presidency.
