Although several members of Congress have now called on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over Operation Fast and Furious, he appeared to dismiss the congressional investigation into the program as not important when reporters asked about it on Tuesday.
We have sent thousands of pages of documents, Holder said in response to a question about whether hell be complying with new subpoenas expected to be heading his way this week. Well look at the subpoenas. Im sure we will undoubtedly comply with them.
But what I want the American people to understand is that in complying with those subpoenas and dealing with that inquiry, that will not detract us from the important business we have to do here at the Justice Department, including matters like the one that we have announced today, Holder continued.
When a reporter followed up and asked the Attorney General if he knew about the controversial tactics employed in Fast and Furious, Holder refused to answer and walked off the stage.

The Daily Caller has pulled the video.
His big worry isn’t the subpoena business or a potential US investigation into this....it’s the worry that Mexico just might bring charges up and demand the US hand the top five guys who were planning and in control of the operation. The President will have to dream of a huge pay-off...just to prevent the Mexican government from ever going this far. If I were one of the top five guys in the Fast and Furious operation....I’d get a tent and just hustle up to Idaho to hide out for ten years.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Holder reminds me of the arrogant lawyer who sued himself to prove how great a litigator he was... and lost!
I did not have sex with that girl!
... and I need to get back to work for the American people
Holder and Janet Reno could overcome their obvious shortcomings and become the NEW Abbott & Costello and head for Hollywood.
I guess the dead are not ‘Holder’s people.”
The current explanation going around for Holder’s excuse for not reading his emails & reports is that he is either blind, never learned how to read or is just plain stupid!!!
Yep, and Watergate was nothing more than a third-rate burglary.
Only a peon or two died, and a bunch of Mexicans... Its not important. Keep moving folks...
...And Holder is now hiding in Barak HusSatans Bunker...
Poster boy for affirmative action.
Your intellect detracts from the average IQ of the human race and your pathetically obvious attempt to distract everyone from examining Fast & Furious has failed.
Got it now, Rat Face? And the next time you have a sit-down in the Oval Office please say hello to Dumbo for us.
Just stop asking me and Obama questions, will you. We are trying to fundamentally change this country, and if a few dead mexicans get in the way, its not a big deal. Well just chalk it up to collateral damages. Remember our motto which all socialist democrats govern by “THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS”
Who wants to bet he’s lying?
When will dems bomb an aspirin factory ...maybe one in Iran?
I wanna see Stedman doing a cuffed perp walk.
A horse of the same color ping.
Ya think maybe the mexican gub mint will send bounty hunters to grap holder to take back to Mexico to face the music???
I’d love to be involved in grabbing his sorry skinny socialist ass.
Punch punch, kick kick.
