Cummings seeks dismissal of Fast and Furious suit against Holder
Examiner ^ | 12/26/12 | David Codrea

Posted on 12/26/2012 6:30:56 PM PST by Nachum

A little-noticed brief filed last Thursday by House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and fellow Democrats John Conyers, Jr., Henry A. Waxman, Edolphus Towns and Louise M. Slaughter, asks the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to dismiss without prejudice the civil complaint by the Oversight Committee against Eric Holder following the Attorney General being found in contempt of Congress for refusing to produce subpoenaed documents related to the Fast and Furious gunwalking investigation.

Characterizing the committee’s actions as a “rush toward unnecessary conflict” and referring to such litigation as “unnecessary and premature,” the petitioners ignore official stonewalling now measured in years, documented lies submitted to congressional investigators, and the deliberate indifference shown by Cummings and other Oversight Democrats when publicly asked to look into allegations of waste, abuse, corruption and fraud by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives management long before the public had ever heard about Fast and Furious. Had they provided such high-profile scrutiny, there is every possibility gunwalking attempts would not have been dared, and those killed as a result might still be alive.

Well, there’s a surprise.

Not.

Shipping illegal guns to Mexico?

Imagine if a U.S. citizen (regular) did just that.

All these subhuman weasels need to spend the rest of their worthless lives in prison. It is cruel to the rest of us to have to hear these asshat losers rant. Pathetic morons.

Typical, three of Holder’s CBC people and a couple of leftists want to bail him out, pathetic but not surprising.

Hey Congressman Cummings, may I tell you a simple truth about yourself that the Republican members of the House are too chicken sh*t to do? You Sir are a Race Pimp, and liar!

You are a disgrace to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s memory. From this point forward, I will address you as “Congressman Race Pimp.”

“”Characterizing the committee’s actions as a “rush toward unnecessary conflict” and referring to such litigation as “unnecessary and premature””

My gosh - actually some words that aren’t used over and over again - something new! WOW! That’s refreshing.

Wonder why this was kept so quiet? Hmmmm - guess that’s something we don’t need to know!

Congressman / Communist Cummings,

Why do you and Gun Runner / Communist Eric Holder hate Mexicans so much as to sacrifice and murder them to meet your goal here in the USA to disarm American Citizens?

He did. However it was legal. He wound up in a Mexican prison for 5 months.

Not just illegal guns.

Military grade weapons.

And not just to Mexicans!

This is a bunch of black solidarity racists including veteran communist sympathizer John Conyers (along with Towns), a white liberal Waxman who is certifiably insane (and in love with himself), all who will protect corrupt black government figures at all costs.

Given Holder’s record of betraying the principles of our country (pardons, Rich, reduced prosecutions, coverups of Fast & Furious), if a white AG had done this (i.e. Watergate for example), he would have been driven out of town.

In this case, the black racists have circled the wagon to protect someone who should be in jail, not in DOJ.

Thinking blacks are ashamed of these political clowns, while thinking whites are ashamed of Waxman and his clones, Pelosi, Reid,Boxer, Debbie Wasserman-Schulz, Schumer, Durbin, Mikulski, Franken, and Alan Grayson (Mr. Psycho of the Year).

Our country is in great trouble and these are the people who got elected to direct us. God help us because the American voter won’t, anymore.

He is a scumbag...he’s the one who said white Tea Party members spat on him and there was no video evidence to back up his racist claim.
