Skip to comments.New Holder video surfaces on F&F ‘misunderstanding’ and Grassley reacts (LIAR!!)

The Justice Department's claim that Attorney General Eric Holder misunderstood a question from Congressman Darrell Issa regarding when Holder first knew about Operation Fast and Furious is now being questioned because additional video from the same hearing, showing Holder responding to essentially the same question from Congressman Jason Chaffetz, appears to contradict that assertion. Holder gave the same answer both times. Senator Charles Grassley issued a statement calling the Justice Department's claim that Holder misunderstood to be "disingenuous at best." According to new documents released last Friday by the White House, and covered by CBS News and other news agencies extensively in the past 24 hours, and discussed by this column, Holder was apparently briefed about Fast and Furious long before he said he was. The new documents show that on November 1, 2010, Deputy Attorney General Lanny Breuer, the chief of the Justice Departments criminal division, personally informed Holder about the operation in a briefing. The document was a memo Breuer wrote to Holder saying in which he included a brief description of Operation Fast and Furious. Another document is a July 2010 memo from the director of the National Drug Intelligence Center to Holder that details how straw purchasers enabled by Operation Fast and Furious were responsible for the purchase of 1,500 guns that were then supplied to Mexican drug cartels.Daily Caller The hearing was before the House Judiciary Committee on May 3. The video was uploaded the following day. Issa questioned Holder first about Fast and Furious, and the Chaffetz exchange with Holder comes afterward. The Justice Department told CBS News that the officials in those emails were talking about a different case started before Eric Holder became Attorney General.

How ‘bout that “transparency”? It appears that the commie libs’ assault on the Second Amendment has backfired. BIG TIME!
What “new” video?
Anyone who watched the hearing saw and heard what was said “live.”
If all else fails Plan C is nuclear.. "Racism! Racism! Racism! Racism! Racism! . . . ."
Here’s a little fun from out WH Insider:
Zembada —that’s the son of the Sinaloa Cartel head, right? He got arrested and is now being tried in Chicago, right? Well the investigators asked him how many Mexican deaths resulted from F&F guns, and do you know what number HE gave?
THREE THOUSAND..! 3,000 Mexicans dead from F&F Guns..!
The better-known number of 200 deaths is the metric given about 3 weeks ago by the Mexican Attorney General, but those are only the dead folks in the vicinity of the F&F weapons when they were recovered.
Impeachment, Criminal & Civil charges to follow, I hope.
And then extradiction to Mexico to stand trial for over 200 deaths there...
to say interesting is an understatement
thanks for that link
Note in this piece that it’s mentioned Biden has been taken into the circle - Maybe he’s being made to think he will be taking over the helm?
Maybe that’s why he made such in-your-face (to The One) statements a few days ago that “This bad economy is on US.” (I.e., don’t blame Bush - it’s THIS president.) People were open-mouthed to think he would say that - and he repeated it for emphasis.
Things are unraveling - The ship may sink from the mere shift of weight to the rear as rats fight for rail space to jump overboard.
Or maybe Biden simply thinks he’s going to get dumped—and doesn’t appreciate it.
