Skip to comments.Holder dumps new Fast and Furious docs as 11 more congressmen call for his resignation
Posted on 11/01/2011 6:31:48 AM PDT by martosko
The Obama administration appears to be attempting to defend Attorney General Eric Holder as the Justice Department dumped more than 650 pages worth of Operation Fast and Furious documents on congressional investigators late Monday.
There are two reasons why the timing of this release is significant: first, 28 members of Congress are currently calling on Holder to resign immediately. Second, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer is testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday and this appears to be an attempt to divert pressure for Fast and Furious away from Holder.
The new documents, according to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, indicate that contrary to previous denials by the Justice Department, the criminal division has a great deal of culpability in sweeping the previous Wide Receiver strategy under the rug and then allowing the subsequent Operation Fast and Furious to continue without asking key questions.

Dear Congressman Issa:
Don’t be distracted.
Holder’s the Target. DO not Flinch.
There’s a freight train full of corruption inside the Holder justice dept., and if revealed I’m guessing it would bring down a whole bunch of people inside and outside the Administration.
holder dumps docs, more calls to resign....
LOL!!! Yeah, thinking the same thing. How much was ‘redacted’?
Obama is the target. Holder is his Maginot line.
anyone know if hearings will be broadcast live, or for tape tonite..
Face it; I am naive and have tried Google searches. Could someone point me/tell me in a short few sentences what Fast and Furious is all about and the angle of the administration’s involvement?
No way man,
“most transparent admministration in history”.
And this punk ass “magic negro” would Never lie.
“Obama is the target. Holder is his Maginot line.”
And we know how the Maginot line fell..........
prediction: Holder is about to announce some high profile prosecutions of Wall Street banker types which will send the OWS crowds cheering and the mainstream media will proclaim him a hero.
Really, like Corzine?
That picture should be enlarged! It’s worth more than 10,000 words.
Lots of us think this was done to flood Mexico with guns from America so that the feds could then have “good” reason to put in more gun control laws in the U.S.
The takeaway line is Obama saying to Mrs. Brady (the woman married to Brady who was shot with Reagan years ago and who the Brady gun control law is named for), when she asked Obama what was taking so long with MORE gun control laws...he said: Don't worry, we are working on something under the radar.
In a nutshell: He had Holder set this up to circumvent the 2nd amendment. I'm no smarty pants, but that looks like treason to me. Treason is a pretty nasty charge.
Well, you really should do a search here....What I gave was pretty sketchy info. There is EVERYTHING you need to know about F&F on this site. It's worth the time to read.
Holder shouldn’t be allowed to slink away with his tail between his legs.
He needs to face punishment.
Now 28 out of 435 calling for Holder’s resignation. Pathetic!! How many senators? I have not heard of one yet. What about the governor’s of the border states? Why aren’t they calling for Holder to resign?
