Did they just say Asst Attorney General to testify after the break?
Hate is a personal choice. This administration has blood on their hands, and will be brought to justice either by; 1) good men, or 2)God.
Right out the gate he is saying confidentiality of ongoing criminal investigations.
I hope Holder gets thrown so far under the bus that it takes a years for him to crawl back out from under it....
Here’s what I hear... Blah blah blah... we’re complying... blah blah blah... 625 pages... additional 900 pages... time and effort...
Going to get some popcorn for the Q/A.
Issa shredding the assistant DOJ!
Issa is on the attack! it is a sight to behold!
This hearing is a MUST SEE!
Darrell Issa is pouring it on .. he’s about calling the witness with the gov a liar to his face. “How dare you !!!!”
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!
