Secret Fast and Furious Recordings Name Names (Holder and Burke among them)
Big Government ^

Posted on 09/21/2011 12:19:00 PM PDT by sunmars

CBS News recently got their hands on secret recordings of conversations about Fast and Furious that took place between an ATF agent and a gun store owner, both of whom were located in the Phoenix area (and both of whom were thoroughly acquainted with Fast and Furious).

The recordings captured agent Hope McAllister talking with Andre Howard, owner of Lone Wolf Trading Company, at a time when Howard was noticeably worried that Fast and Furious was going to become public knowledge or be put under the microscope of a congressional investigation. Howard especially feared that Senator Charles Grassley might push for an inquiry of some kind. Thus at least four times in the recordings he can be heard mentioning Grassley, and one of those four times it’s to say someone needs to tell Grassley “to sit [his] a—down.”

What’s also interesting about the recordings is that although they were made in mid-March 2011, Attorney General Eric Holder’s name comes up quite a bit. And his name doesn’t come up because they’re afraid he’s going to find out about Fast and Furious but because he was the one they were counting on to deflect attention from it.

In other words, he was well aware of the operation by mid-March 2011, and this is somewhat ironic because in answering questions from Congressman Darrell Issa on May 3 he said he only learned of Fast and Furious “over the last few weeks.” This means he led Issa to believe the earliest he knew anything about the operation was sometime in April. Yet on the recordings (from mid-March), it is clear Holder was the one Howard hoped would stop the investigative momentum by responding to a letter regarding Fast and Furious from the House Oversight Committee:

Can’t wait for the perp walks right in the middle of one of you know who’s campaign speeches. Not that they’d ever be arrested, but one can hope.

“People better start lawyering up, this is getting wild”

Why is it that CBS has recordings and not Issa?
Is the next claim going to be that the people involved were not aware of being recorded and thus not admissable as evidence?

This whole matter still reeks of holder and hussein getting off scott free.

“Does’nt this prove that Holder deliberately lied to congress without a doubt.”

Hussein Heads will mindlessly argue, “Three weeks, or seven — what’s the diff? Holder told the truth.”

The only potential President that would go after all the corruption in the federal government is Sarah Palin. She is the only one with nothing to hide. That’s the real reason she is fear by the Democrat and GOP establishment.

Technically, it only proves that Howard (and possibly MacAllister) believed Holder knew. Holder could easily argue that MacAllister was just telling Howard what he wanted to hear with respect to DoJ running "interference".
