Skip to comments.LIVE HEARING NOW: 'OPERATION FAST AND FURIOUS' (LINK)
Posted on 06/15/2011 7:39:03 AM PDT by montag813
Live video stream of Rep. Issa's hearing following the blistering report released regarding 'Operation Fast and Furious'. 3 ATF agents and the family of slain Agent Brian Terry to testify, as well as an ATF official whose testimony will reportedly be contradicted (what a shock)
Mr. Cummings is a moron - I’d say something else, but I don’t want to be banned.
Cummings make an ass of himself. Now it becomes political.
Well, the Assistant Attorney General SHOULD know who authorized it and who ordered it etc... Otherwise he is not doing his job.
Been watching it. Issa just ripped the little DOJ weasal a new one. This Welch dude looks like a SEIU thug!
Truthfully, that is the exact reason behind the whole GunWalker/F&F program in the first place.
Something sure does stink here and I don’t think it is soley about using this deal politically to enact new restrictive gun laws.
Somebody is getting kickbacks from the drug cartels. Somebody high up imho.
Political lines now clearly visible.
He sure does ...
Cummings .. a marble-mouthed racist commie. Issa should’ve tamped him down immediately, when he asked the witness to forgive Issa’s questions. I’m SO impressed with Issa . . pray for him and that he gets to the bottom of the filth that’s invaded this great nation.
This is outrageous. Didn’t Holder testify that he didn’t know about Fast and Furious? Well...then..how could he be in the middle of an internal investigation?
Smoke and Mirrors!
Ron Weich was nominated by President Obama to serve as the Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs in March 2009 and confirmed by the Senate the following month. Mr. Weich heads the Office that represents the Department of Justice on all legislative and oversight matters before Congress.
Immediately prior to assuming his current position, Weich served as Chief Counsel to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He earlier served as counsel to Senators Edward M. Kennedy and Arlen Specter. Prior to joining Senator Reid’s staff in January 2005, Weich was a partner in the law firm of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP. He began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney in New York City.
Weich, a native New Yorker, is a graduate of Columbia University and the Yale Law
Clay is using the same excuses to halt hearings as was done (successfully) during the Whitewater hearings.
Chaf up. He is on top of this whole stinking pile too. This will be good.
I am appalled at what I am hearing. Everyone was saying all the right things when the mother of the murdered agent was in the room but now, it’s all about shielding the DOJ... at least it’s clear who’s shielding and who’s pursuing the matter at hand.
Wow... he’s on target.
At the bottom of this whole stinking mess is drug runner money going into the coffers of democrats folks. Mark my word.
Rep Chaffetz tearing into Weich!
The Congressman from Utah - WOW!! He’s slamming this little turd!
Assistant AG keeps lying and squirming.He keeps saying they didn’t know anything at the time of the inquiry.
Chaffits (sp?) rocks!
How’s it go?... follow the money? How come there isn’t a “gate” attached to this (or have I been with the Geico guys under the rock)?
Issa needs to end this hearing today with contempt of court charges against Holder and the Obama Administration.
They were ordered to let these guns walk away and not to follow the chain. That’s not just about letting US guns into the hands of the drug cartels in order to legislate tough gun control laws.
Somebody was/is getting huge sums of money from the cartels to allow these guns to get into Mexico.
Big Big Money!
Well done. I see “gate” has universal bolts on it. ;-)
After AG Holder already appeared saying I DON’T KNOW I AM NOT AWARE OF THAT over and over. I really thought that the assistant AG would have some freaking answers other than lies and stalling. It is infuriating!!!
How bout Obama Cartelgate?
Cummings talking about being the ‘adults’ now...rotflol!!!!
Commie SOB’s in the DOJ!
Follow the money!
Arrg... need to jump on a conf call. Looking forward to seeing the rebroadcast.
Obviously Brian Terry was not one of Eric Holders “PEOPLE”....
Obviously Brian Terry was not one of Eric Holders “PEOPLE”....
How does the criminal investigation of those that killed the federal agent have anything to do with the DOJ ignoring subpoena’s? Drug lords killed him therefore they are not American.
This Welchi dude looks like he is organized crime thorugh and through. He use to work for Reid. Go figure.
Welch = BS Artist deluxe
Cummings talks a lot and says nothing, and yet he worries about wasting time.
Cummings saying he is tired of ring around the rosey. Assistant AG saying no wall. LOL they have been stonewalling. Let’s see if Cummings tells him enough no more. HE JUST SAID-They hired attorneys at DOJ to handle this. What a sad joke.
Assistant AG just screwed up and said no to Issa on a specific doc request because of the executive branch yet the executive branch supposedly has not a clue about any of this according to it’s leader Obama.NUTS!
Cummings is a turdball looking to get behind closed doors with DoJ and ATF to co-ordinate the cover-up while sounding “reasonable.”
Keep in mind to all of those just joining this discussion ofGunwalkerGate; the paperwork until today DOJ has released has been redacted.
Cummings brain transplant (huge scar on forehead) was apparently unsuccessful....LOL.
LOL all of the dems in there today were playin for Obama.
WOW...that was some hearing.
Looks like the commie rats Obama and Holder have ALOT of explaining to do.
My reasons are due to the suffering this administration has subject America to in their misguided belief that everyone should suffer. They totally believe that an all powerful Government is the answer to EVERY problem. we know that is not the case.
As history has shown, when that mindset is in place and the results do not meet expectations the citizens of such societies become the victims of the mentality of killing to heal. It is evil and I hate evil. Sorry
Yep...Obama and Holder are above the law and this was nothing more than ‘in your face’ lawlessness. They are doing the same thing on multiple fronts..Libya being another one.
They can be held in contempt. That is the next process.
I certainly hope that someone comes forward with some answers. Those working for Obozo and Holder won’t.
Riiiight. I'll not hold my breath waiting for that to happen. (wish I knew the html code for cynicism and dripping disdain)
see my #96
The Hill picks a curious word “leaks” to include in the title of this story.
How about “Issa Shines The Harsh Light of Truth On The Lying Idiots Who Supplied Guns To Murdererous Drug Traffickers” as being much more accurate?BY All Fed Up on 06/15/2011 at 12:31
We knew that the Justice Department stonewalled and refused to hand over investigative info to Issa, in order to do his investigation, because that info now directly names those, at high levels, who were directly involved. Now those involved need to be prosecuted. BY Sandy on 06/15/2011 at 12:38
I’m glad to see a partial release like this. It’s been a long time coming, but not enough has yet to be disclosed. Abuses like these have been going on for decades. Other stores have been smashed only for “bad record keeping.” Just where was the law enforcement purpose in any of this? That’s what’s so troubling. It’s bad policy to deliberately send in “straw men” in the name of the lawBY Hen on 06/15/2011 at 12:42
You are correct! I thought the Exec branch knew NOTHING about this...
