ISSA subpoenaing more Fast and Furious information from Eric Holder, Justice Department
The Daily Caller ^ | October 9, 2011 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 10/09/2011 4:50:47 PM PDT by matthewreporter

House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced plans Sunday to issue more subpoenas to Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department in the ongoing Operation Fast and Furious congressional investigation.

“We want to know: what did they know and when did they know it,” Issa said on “Fox News Sunday.” “But, more specifically, we have to understand, at what level did the authorization come? It wasn’t an ATF operation — they were part of that.”

“It was a joint operation, the DEA [Drug Enforcement Administration] knew more than ATF knew,” Issa continued. “And, of course, these are all part of the Department of Justice, and as we’re beginning to see, and we’re not talking about Eric Holder at this moment, people at the top of Justice were well-briefed, knew about it and seemed to be in command and controlled funding of this program.”

Yep. I want to see Holder get up in front of that oversight committee and perjure himself again.

It's been a busy week end. But such great news on the political front as I open up the Drudge I see Cane taking it to the street bums and Holder is going to have His ass dragged in front of Issa to answer for lies every one with 1/2 a brain knows Hes been telling. Hes responsible for murder, this is his baby.

Yep, my guess, this is going to get much bigger than just DOJ involvement.

I agree...this isn’t going to pushed aside by any means. I’ve been watching this for a time but have not posted as the details haven’t been clear to me until recently. But this isn’t going away....not by a long shot!

Ulsterman, a writer, has a White House insider who was giving him clues on what was going to unfold maybe 6-9 months ago. Pretty much, everything that was predicted has happened. TheUlstermanReport.com was started recently by Ulsterman but there seems to be some virus attached to it- most likely obamamaniacs so I would wait a little bit before going there. Great reads though, especially about Michelle.

Ace of Spades quoted Holder’s whiny five-page letter, with a particularly infuriating passage: “As I have said, the fact that even a single gun was not interdicted in this operation and found a way to Mexico is unacceptable. Equally unacceptable however, is the fact that too many in Congress are opposed to any discussion of fixing loopholes in the laws that facilitate the staggering flow of guns each year across our border to the South.”

He's all but admitting that this was done to undermine the Second Amendment. They just ran out of time before the Tea Party disrupted everything in November 2010.

If Holder had done this without Obama being in the know, the game would have already been over. Obama has never hesitated to throw someone under the political bus. If Obama had not known, he would have fired Holder, immediately appointed a new AG (that the Congress would accept) and ask the new AG to investigate and prosecute.

Obama is up to his ass in this mess and the level is rising every day.

Occupy Wall Street is a classic Saul Alinsky type diversion to take the heat off Obama and the Justice Department.

This is not going away.

WHAT ABOUT OBAMA? He told a gun control advocate they were working under the radar on Gun control.

Quoth Eric "The Red" Holder:

"Equally unacceptable however, is the fact that too many in Congress are opposed to any discussion of fixing loopholes in the laws that facilitate the staggering flow of guns each year across our border to the South."

Hmmm. No mention of the staggering holes in the border allowing the flow of guns south and illegals north each year. That couldn't possibly be part of the problem, could it?

Nixon’s AG, John Mitchell, spent 4 years in prison and Watergate didn’t kill anybody.

Holder is facing serious slammer time after 2012.

That would be nice but will they go after him if Obama is gone?
