Most excellent. TY
Didn't Holder say that Fast and Furious was run out of a rogue office in Phoenix? Surely the agents in Phoenix knew that they didn't have the authorization to run guns into Mexico, but they did it anyway without Holder being in the loop, according to Holder.
Same with the Tampa office into Honduras.
For Holder to claim he didn't give his approval, he will have to jail somebody below him for abuse of power and unauthorized actions.
Will he do that?
No. He won’t. It’s all up to the Repubs. All they have to do is follow the money. All that you mentioned required high level of approvals within the State Department and DOJ (Hillary and Eric). Stuff that sensitive doesn’t spool up on its own. It takes funding. Lots of it. No field agent will do a high wire act like that without a net, and, most importantly, money. Official funds have to be approved and allocated to make the ops run. And, a Special Agent in Charge regularly reports to the Washington headquarters regarding caseload, agent assignments, expenditures of investigative resources and funding. Want to know who cleared this fustercluck? Ask the bean counters and funding gurus in the Office of Management and Budget.
