Posted on 06/07/2012 12:48:01 PM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost
(CNSNews.com) Attorney General Eric Holder claimed during congressional testimony today that internal Justice Department emails that use the phrase Fast and Furious do not refer to the controversial gun-walking operation Fast and Furious.
Under questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who read excerpts of the emails at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Justice Department oversight, Holder claimed that the phrase Fast and Furious did not refer to Fast and Furious but instead referred to another gun-walking operation known as Wide Receiver.
However, the emails refer to both programs -- "Fast and Furious" and the "Tucson case," from where Wide Receiver was launched -- and reveal Justice Department officials discussing how to handle media scrutiny when both operations become public.
Among three of the emails (see Jason Weinstein Email Fast, Furious.pdf), the second, dated October 17, 2010 11:07 PM, was sent by Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein to James Trusty and it states: Do you think we should have Lanny participate in press when Fast and Furious and Lauras Tucson case [Wide Receiver] are unsealed? Its a tricky case, given the number of guns that have walked, but it is a significant set of prosecutions.

Why hasn't Obama forced Holder to resign? Is this constant climate of distrust in our own government part of Obama's strategy at undermining our Republic?
Depends on what the meaning of “is”, is...
Eric Holder is a cowardly, racist, murdering SOB who deserves to die in a prison cell.
Maybe the Republican members need to take a page from “Animal House” and start coughing “Bulls***” every time Holder tells a whopper. Might be hard on their voices though.

I literally laughed out loud at this one. What a lying POS this Holder is!
Thanks for posting this....saw the last part of the hearing....missed seeing this.
For capital murder. And the whole ATF too while they're at it.
His lips are moving fast because he is furious.
Moderator, this is a duplicate thread. I noticed ‘Nachum’ already posted this. My apologies.
And the standing man says to the cops, "It's not what you think ..."
He sounds like a traffic stop on the TV show Cops!
Withholder will continue to lie and play what he considers his noble games because he is protecting Obama and according to his LIBERAL IDEALOGY he doesn’t believe he did anything wrong. Issa should keep up the pressure because this thing is bound to expode sooner or later, implementing not only WITHHOLDER, but OBAMA and his CABINET.
He’s just a really big Vin Diesel fan.
Just like the term “Global Governance” doesn’t mean “World Government.”
And ‘Democrat’ doesn’t mean ‘Socialist’. /s
What you goin’ to believe, me or your lying eyes?
I agree Holder should be impeached, dragged from office, his suit torn off him, and he thrown into the street for Police to arrest him as a vagrant.
However, does it help to leave him constantly be called before Congress to lie again and again? Pressing charges/indictments helps

WHI: Borrowed time. Tough-tough-tough. Smart. You know now dont take this the wrong way here now I come to respect him on some level. Not saying I like the man not in the least. But he has managed to intimidate enough people use the machine to his advantage the guy is good. Real good. And that is horrible for the country. Thats why I have been saying for since we started this. The guy has got to go. Got to be forced out removed whatever. I called him Obamas firewall long time ago. Right? Day one thats what I called him. Obamas firewall. Jarretts firewall. Jarrett has kept him in place. Confirmed that. There was a moment last year. Late last year. Talks within the administration they were getting heat from some of the boys on the Hill. Wanted the bad P.R. that was surrounding the DOJ to be put to bed long before the election year stuff ramped up. Take their licks and then move on. So they wanted Eric Holder to step down. Put a fresh face in there.
You mind if I go on about this for a bit?
UM: Go ahead please proceed.
WHI: So where was it? Where was I?
UM: Members of Congress wanted Holder gone. Before the election year started.
WHI: Right thats it. They not a big group of them but some big names. Handful of them telling the White House they were worried the hearings might catch on with the public Fast and Furious they didnt want to contend with that situation during an election year. So they wanted Holder out. They made that clear made it very clear to the White House.
then Jarrett got word of it. Real quick of course because almost everything that is to get to the president she approves of first. I told you that two years ago. Before almost anyone even knew who the hell Valerie Jarrett was, right? She is management in the White House. She has the veto power over who gets in and who stays the f-ck out. So she got word of these particular Democrats a Senator in particular who the rest of them were hiding behind. And she brought the wrath of God down on that poor bastard. There was a meeting. The two of them. Face to face. He was at the White House on something totally unrelated but she had someone send him up to the second floor her office upstairs. The real West Wing in the Obama White House and she absolutely destroyed a United States Senator and she didnt give a sh-t who overheard it. The man left her office he was pale. Shaking like-like one of them poor palsy bastards.
There had to have been a threat made. On him. On his family. Money. Something. And she must have made it absolutely clear to the guy she was not playing around. And there has not been a word about Holder stepping down from those people since. This Senator you see the others were hiding behind him. They figured he had enough hell I woulda thought the same damn thing. The guy is a f-cking institution. She left him pale and shaking and once he backed off the others went running for cover.
You ask me about Valerie F-cking Jarrett? Thats Valerie Jarrett and her relationship to the Obama White House. She IS the Obama White House. Even Michelle defers to her and that woman
shes a hard unlikeable
I wont use that word
but even she defers to Jarrett.
Obama hasn't forced Holder to resign -- and he's not going to -- because Holder is his firewall.
This is what we get for posting jokes about it. Holder must have seen that cartoon and now that’s his story.
Dickie Durbin? Tom "Dungheap" Harkin?
“Depends on what the meaning of is, is...”
“Depends on what the meaning of is, is...”
Or what the meaning of “was” was!
If there was justice, Holder would hang.
If there was justice, Holder would hang.
Oh! They were talking about the movies....
Holder: “These are not the droids you’re looking for.”
Press: “Ok. Move along.”
“...Simple solution to this:
For capital murder. And the whole ATF too while they’re at it....”
We recently stopped and visited Goliad, TX which is down in south Texas. It’s an old town with a lot of history. In the old section where the courthouse square is, there is this great BIG old tree called the “Hanging Tree”. They used to actually hold court right on on the grounds and then hang em 10-15 at a time in the old days....now that was a DOJ!!! Maybe it’s getting close to that having to reinstate the old days.....naaa, cruel and unusual punishment and all that liberal stuff. But one can wish.
The great generation that put the Nazis on the noose at Nuremburg is long gone.
This new negro Nazi party will skate just like the Clinton cartel did in the 90s.
President Romney will not purge our government of the corrupt racist trash anymore than Bush did after he was elected.
Where have the soap box and the ballot box gotten us now?
Any side bets on how long Obummer’s pardon list is going to be?
Can’t wait to see it, come December.
Thank you Carrie Nation.
When the next admiistration comes in, will there be any records of Holders decisions found at DOJ? I expect a lot of empty file drawers.
