House Republicans on Wednesday presented an amendment to a Department of Justice spending bill that would prevent Justice from using taxpayer funds to lie to Congress.
The bill, which is likely to pass, was presented by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and supported by several other Republicans who are outraged over a February 2011 letter from the department that denied any involvement in a gun-walking program....
On Tuesday night, the House voted to strip $1 million in funding from Justice in response to the Fast and Furious scandal.

Government takes money out of my pocket at the point of a gun. Government gives that money to the Justice Department. Government then says to Justice Department give me Flint's money back. That will teach you a lesson!
I am making a great effort here to see how I win in this transaction.
Trey Gowdys comments are priceless. He has been very persistent. I like him a lot.
*agreed! he’s been very impressive..hoping Romney team is taking notes on this guy :)
Actually, the biggest scandal in US history is "Obama" having been installed in office at all, so as to allow withHolder to be appointed as AG and this "operation" to go down in the first place. Along with Solyndra, Lightsquared, "Obamacare," Libya and on and on and on.
Constitution? These villains don't need no steenkin' Constitution.
We already have such a law, we just need people with some guts to enforce them. Hell of a note when we have to pass a law requiring the Dept of Justice to enforce the law.
This is not the biggest scandal in US history. That honor lies with Obama being elected to and “winning” the office of POTUS. This is, however, is the second biggest scandal in US history.
As ridiculous as that may sound the Obama/Holder Justice Department has made it necessary.
Exactly. When the top law office in the land has to be told to stop defrauding the American people.. WE ARE SOOOOOO SCREWED, AMERICA.
One meeeeellion dollars!
Isnt there a law for that already?
I honestly believe tha the current administration should find Mussolini’s fate comforting considering all of the evil that they have actively pursued.
One day our Lord will judge these cretins. I wish them luck.
So I guess they are putting the Justice Department on Double Secret Probation? Washington has truly become Animal House.
Uh . . . we need a law to defund DOJ’s lying to Congress??
Why, that’ll put the fear of God into them, i tell you!
BINGO!...But the real scandal will be the MSM participation...How do u fix that??????????
ONE YEAR AGO TOMORROW...
Obama on Tuesday stood at the U.S.-Mexico border for the first time since winning the White House and declared it more secure than ever.
—LOL to keep from COL.
Yeah, pathetic, ain’t it?
Defunding a million dollars is a joke. Chump change.
Not really. This is like impounding the getaway car but leaving the bank robber alone.
