Just the facts:
On May 3, 2011, Attorney General Eric Holder appeared before Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and the House Oversight Committee for questioning on Fast and Furious.
During questioning, Issa asked: When did you first know about the program called Fast and Furious?
Holder responded: Im not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks
As Ive written elsewhere, at the very moment Holder gave this answer, it was a safe bet he was being less than completely honest with the Congressional committee. But now the evidence, having become insurmountable in just the past 48 hours, makes it crystal clear that Holder lied to Issa and the House Oversight Committee.
Reports CBS NEWS: [Holder] was sent briefings back as far as 2010. Briefings on Fast and Furious that is, beginning at least as early as July 2010. (In other words, Holder began receiving briefings on Fast and Furious ten months before his May 3rd Congressional testimony.)
And on October 18, 2010, documents show that Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer sent communiqués to Holder warning that indictments for Fast and Furious could come soon.
In response to this growing mound of evidence against him, Holder is now saying he misunderstood that question from Congress [on May 3rd], that he did know about Fast and Furious, just not the details

re: “First, get a million dollars, THEN, when the IRS man comes around, simply say ‘I... Forgot’”.
It worked for Timothy Geithner.
So far the Kos Kiddies and the Brady Bunch seem to be sticking to their strategy of pretending that this doesn’t exist.
Pun obvious and fully intended...
No one will prosecute the low level guys because thats Holders job, and he’s not going to do it.
But, it’s become obvious that the head of Justice will lie under oath. His word is now Garbage. He becomes a dead fish hung around Obamas neck. With every hearing he rots and stinks a bit more. Issa can slap the dead fish around, every month.
I most fervently hope you're right.
