Default Fast and Furious hearing rips Holder, DOJ for deception in gun-running scandal

Still wondering who Holder blew to become AG. Dude isn't qualified to run the fry station at Burger King.

Holder, as well as Rice, were more crooked than Christopher Reeve's spinal cord.

Fast and Furious hearing rips Holder, DOJ for deception in gun-running scandal | Fox News

Quote:
Members of a congressional committee at a public hearing Wednesday blasted former President Barack Obama and his attorney general for allegedly covering up an investigation into the death of a Border Patrol agent killed as a result of a botched government gun-running project known as Operation Fast and Furious.

The House Oversight Committee also Wednesday released a scathing, nearly 300-page report that found Holder’s Justice Department tried to hide the facts from the loved ones of slain Border Patrol Brian Terry – seeing his family as more of a “nuisance” than one deserving straight answers – and slamming Obama's assertion of executive privilege to deny Congress access to records pertaining to Fast and Furious.
Quote:
“More than five years after Brian’s murder, the Terry family still wonders about key details of Operation Fast and Furious,” the committee’s report states. “The Justice Department’s obstruction of Congress’s investigation contributed to the Terry family’s inability to find answers.”

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, testified Wednesday in front of the committee, accusing DOJ and ATF officials of obstructing the investigation and working to silence ATF agents who informed the Senate of Fast and Furious.

“The Department of Justice and ATF had no intention of looking for honest answers and being transparent,” said Grassley, now chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a staunch supporter of whistleblowers.

“In fact, from the onset, bureaucrats employed shameless delay tactics to obstruct the investigation.”

One of those silenced ATF agents, John Dodson, testified Wednesday that he remains “in a state of purgatory” since objecting to Fast and Furious and has been the subject of reprisals and ridicule at the agency.

“That decision, the single act of standing up and saying, ‘What we are doing is wrong’… instantly took my standing from being that of an agent of the government – to an enemy of the state,” Dodson said. “ATF and DOJ officials implemented an all-out campaign to silence and discredit me… Suffice to say, the last six to seven years at ATF have not been the best for me or my career.”

Grassley's and Dodson's testimony reinforced findings of the report, which states that the Justice Department knew before Terry’s death that the ATF was “walking” firearms to Mexico and knew the day after the agent’s death that Fast and Furious guns were involved in the shootout -- despite denying these facts to the media. It goes on to state that the Justice Department’s internal investigation focused more on spinning the story to avoid negative media coverage than looking into lapses by either the DOJ or ATF.

Several emails revealed in the report appear to indicate that some Justice Department staffers were working to keep information from political appointees at the department.
Quote:
The report also says that Holder’s Justice Department stonewalled inquiries from Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and deceptively told him that the “ATF makes every effort to interdict” firearms purchased by straw buyers. The controversial act of straw purchases – where a person who is prohibited from buying firearms uses another person to buy a gun on his or her behalf – has been a popular method that Mexico’s drug cartels use to obtain guns.

There were many deceitful people in the chain. SAC Newell, US attorney for Ariz. Dennis Burke, Lanny Breuer, and others. Ron Weich and Holder played the stonewalling game to perfection signing off on the Feb. 4th lying letter to Grassley. The Terry family was lied to. John Dodson and the other whistle blowers have been vindicated. F&F was not a "botched investigation". It was a purposeful deception that caused hundreds of deaths in Mexico and then blamed on FFL's. The success of the scheme was measured in the in the increased body count. How does anyone justify "time to crime" numbers? Walk the guns preferred by cartels and then trace it back from the murder scenes. The river of iron was created by the DOJ and given OCDETF designation. After Terry died, they quickly round up the straw buyers and proclaim some great take down. Very slimy.

Holder got the AG job first and foremost because he is obedient over all else. Back in the last days of the Clinton administration he helped Hillary bypass the review process for convicted swindler Marc Rich. That clearly showed his willingness to follow orders without impediment of legal and moral constraints.

Here's the link to Report 3 of 3. It's over 250 pages and chronicles this deliberate disaster and cover-up. They were able to stonewall and spin for over 6 years and this shows the machinery. Section 1 tells how Burkes office withheld information and gave false information to the Terry family. They were considered a public relations "nuisance" and the recommended strategy was to only deal with the "intelligent side of the family".

Holder should have gone to jail years ago, if the Democrats were not such slime merchants.

Laws mean nothing to Democrats who answer to George Soros and the Globalist left wing Elite.

But racist Holder has gotten off Obama and companies free pass program.

Nothing would be finer than to see this racist black man serve some serious jail time, along with all the others who perpetuated this garbage policy.

Regards, Kirk

One headline said that F&F was being reopened. I don't think it was ever closed even after 6 years. Those who thought that the ATF and DOJ were lying, covering up, and stonewalling were right. The questions that everybody had at the very beginning about what the strategy was all about are still unresolved because of document hiding and some main players not being held accountable. It may take a little longer, maybe up to 2 years to get Obama's EP order court decision reversed. Mr. Heyer's testimony at 1:02:00 mark explains some of the lies that they were fed by Burke and ATF. He calls what happened "the dirty little secret of F&F" . He wants the questions answered.
