Holder requests Fast and Furious docs from Issa, Grassley for ‘independent’ investigation
Daily Caller ^ | 8/17/11 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 08/17/2011 8:25:42 PM PDT by Nachum

The Department of Justice says its Office of Inspector General is conducting an independent investigation into the gunwalking Operation Fast and Furious, which Congress is already probing. Attorney General Eric Holder requested a transcript of Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa from their secret July 4th meeting with Ken Melson, acting Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives director. Holder and other DOJ officials have repeatedly said the DOJ’s Inspector General is doing its own internal investigation into what went wrong with Fast and Furious.

Holder is the LAST person they should want to give them to. Tell him to screw off! They’re just looking for names.

Sounds more like building an assassination list, not just a coverup.

I hope Melson has taken out a large life insurance policy....and I pray that he has given a video deposition “to be opened in the event that I take a walk in Ft Marcy Park!”

Looks like Holder is worried about what was divulged in the secret meeting?

They should tell him that they will turn them over when he appoints an independent special prosecutor that they confirm they will turn the documents over to him, but not to Holder since it looks like he might be one of the criminals in this case.

They want to know what Melson testified to under oath...they do not know the full testimony, only what was released by the parties involved. The DOJ just not have access to Congressional transcripts that are not otherwise public.

DOJ knows more will be called to testify and they want to avoid perjury charges.

They're scared and those they've asked to lie are even more scared.

Issa should tell Holder to come and personally get them from his office.

Then, Issa should plant a couple guys in KKK garb outside his office with billy clubs.

“Sounds more like building an assassination list, not just a coverup.”

He’s just being a lawyer. He wants to make sure future Justice Dept witnesses have a chance to have rehersed responses to the most damaging documents and that they say “I don’t know” where the documents would contradict their testimony.

You ain’t smart by 1/2.

You guys are the ones providing the documents.

If Holder wants secret documents, he should send Sandy Burger over to pick them up. But all Holder can do is ask.

If he's smart, he'll contract out for some dirty tricks to blackmail the congressmen. It worked for Bill Clinton.

I disagree. Once a Special Prosecutor takes over, there will be no further Congressional hearings. The issue will disappear from view and nothing will be made public before Nov 2012. This crime needs to be exploited, not hidden.

Fast and Furious is a gift from Obama we should not squander. I hope Issa slow walks his inquiry. Plan the hearings and revelations such that a Contempt of Congress citation is issued against Holder next August. Follow that with his prosecution and careful leaks that implicate Obama all the way up to the election.

Two can play the October surprise game. Let's do it.

Holder is looking for an already prepared hit list. There will probably be a series of unexplained single car accidents and some suicides, etc., from this. Clinton showed the way and a Communist is only too happy to follow profitable leads.

Holder is more concerned about who did the divulging and what other names were given so they can be preemptively "persuaded" to silence.

That’s a good plan. But I worry that without a Special Prosecutor, Holder and a whole lot of FBI and BATF agents will not go to jail which is really needed to start cleaning up those cesspools.

Since Issa has Holder in his sights and the DOJ has already been implicated, this request is akin to having a murderer ask the AG for all the information he has on a murder, before charges are filed. If Issa gives up the goods, you know this has all been kabuki theater.

Where is the guy the Clinton’s used—Sandy Berger—who stuffed documents into his pants & removed them from official files???

Holder needs to be answering for this mess.

Issa needs to hold the line against Holder.
