Posted on 10/05/2011 7:18:28 AM PDT by opentalk
According to reports last night Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath about Fast and Furious during testimony to Congress. On May 3, 2011, while under oath, Holder told a Congressional committee, Im not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.
But, new emails prove he was notified about Fast and Furious back in July 2010.
Today, the Obama Justice Department claimed Eric Holder did not understand the question:
The Justice Department told CBS News Holder misunderstood that question from the committee he did know about Fast and Furious just not the details.

Holder Claims He Did Not Understand THIS Question, When Did You First Learn About Fast and Furious? (Video)
This sounded like satire. The detail position is highly shaky too.
Then he’s too stupid to be the nation’s Attorney General.
He is either really that stupid or thinks that we are to buy that bullshit statement.
What an idiot...
Eric Holder lied.
Fine then. Bring him back in front of the Committee, re-swear him in, and ask much more detailed questions this time.
If he says he did not understand, then that’s another lie.
He knows damn well that the New York Times, Washington Post and CBSABCNBCCNN will not only buy the bullshit, but swallow it whole. He does not give a damn what we think.
His reply to the original question was calculated to provide him cover when or if the truth became known. I doubt if they can prosecute him for it.
right up there with “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is”
I can’t argue with you on that.
Holder: "Oh, congress was referring to the ATF program! I thought they were talking about "Fast and Furious" the 2009 street racing film staring Vin Diesel. Uh, Yeah I only learned about the movie a few weeks ago when I was channel surfing. Sorry about the confusion."
Only a large plurality has to be able to buy the statement that he did not understand the question - that is enough to provide protective cover for what is a “complete dramatization, of course”.
Eric Holder may not be smart, but he is one shrewd sharecropper. Only a few miles away from the plantation house, but still on the grounds.
Scooter Libby. That’s all that needs cited as precedent. Appoint a Special Prosecutor, Independent Counsel, whatever they call it now.
For the present, only.
Thank God that his position is only a temporary one. Just like Ubama. He can and will be removed from office.
He didn’t understand the question then he is too stupid to act as head honcho of the DOJ it would seem. If he can’t understand a simple question clearly put. Either that or he is a damned LIAR and unfit to be trusted on that account.
It depends on what the definition of “is” is....
Idiotic ignorant rascist should be called on the carpet, but the MSM will let it die as quick as possible.
He went to the Bill Clinton school of self defense
