Jeff Sessions agrees to release Fast and Furious documents

March 7, 2018

  I know it has been awhile but you still remember the Fast and Furious scandal, don’t you? This was one of the scandals which occurred during Barack Obama’s scandal-free administration. In this particular scandal the Department of Justice, under Eric Holder, allowed weapons to be sold to criminals and trafficked into Mexico so they could be tracked. The government lost the weapons and eventually Border Patrol agents Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata were killed by some of these weapons.

  When the scandal started to get too close to Eric Holder he asked Barack Obama to use Executive Privilege to seal the documents and Barack Obama did so. When Eric Holder appeared before the Congress he refused to cooperate and was held in Contempt but nothing was ever done to him.

  After six years of fighting for the documents the Congress is finally going to get them because according to this story Attorney General Jeff Sessions has agreed to release them. Here is more:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Wednesday that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will provide documents to Congress on the Obama-era program dubbed “Fast and Furious” that allowed criminals to purchase guns in Phoenix-based gun shops in order to track them into Mexico.

“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious,” Sessions said in a press release.

“We need to find out the truth, exactly what happened, how it happened, why it happened. We need Mr. Trump, President Trump, to unseal the documents, reverse executive privilege so that we know what happened, and that we can hold the people accountable that are responsible,” Kent Terry said on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.

  I would add as a side-note here that while Jeff Sessions is interested in the “rule of law” in this case he does not seem concerned about the rule of law regarding Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee over the Russian dossier but let that go.

  I would not expect anybody to be held accountable, that is a pipe dream, but at least we might finally learn the truth and maybe this will bring some closure to the families of Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata.

    Maybe going after some of the smaller cold cases first, helps build for the ‘out of the park’ grand slam (I pray!).
    In this case though, shootings and killing by these guns lead back to this F&F administration, making them ‘accountable’ in issuing them.
    The CIA has done this sort of thing for years, giving certain gangs drugs, weapons and $$. Be neat to have some those ‘nazi’ related crimes be disclosed too!
