“There are 652 pages of documents that our investigators will scour over the next several days, beyond the few that the Justice Department pointed out. At first glance, though, the documents 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.
“Most importantly, officials raised very appropriate questions related to Operation Wide Receiver at the same time that many of these same officials were receiving briefings on Operation Fast and Furious. It begs the question why they didn’t ask the same important policy questions about an ongoing case being run out of the same field division.
“It also appears that the impression left to Senate Judiciary Committee staff was false during a briefing by Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein and several others last February. Despite their denials of gun walking, it appears that senior DOJ officials clearly knew that it had happened in Operation Wide Receiver and ignored the red flags that it was happening in Fast and Furious.
“With every document that comes out, the Justice Department loses credibility and the faith of the American people.”

It’s time for Holder to apologize (”Americans” love getting apologies. It makes them feel so superior.) and then resign.
When was the last time they had any credibility?
I have been listening to the Hillsdale College series on the Constitution. I just finished the fifth and last one in the series. In it, Dr. Arndd points out that the Const. allocates powers to the Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches. AT THE BEHEST OF THE PEOPLE.
BUT, “We the People” have given over that last part to those 3 branches. This leaves us with nothing. Unless we act and QUICKLY to retake it.
Blow it open, Grassley. The American people might lose faith in you.
The msm will be all over this as soon as they stop smearing Herman Cain.
Guess Who is Above the Law!
The ‘criminal division’ is full of....criminals. Yes. It is.
We can’t have media coverage of this! There are more important matters, such as Herman Cain putting his hand to his chin.
that graphic says it all!
The "Criminal Division" is called that because it commits crimes.
VERY Sharp shot across the bow there! The obvious answer is that the two projects had different goals. One was interdicting gun smuggling, the other, destroying the second amendment. This why no complaints on the second case, as it was on target!
This means charges of Treason, not incompetence.
