I just heard Congressman Darrell Issa (D-CA) say perhaps a Special Prosecutor is not a good idea, as his committee has already been “stonewalled” by one, for a
year, on the Fast and Furious case. It’s good to hear a Congressman tell it like it is. What he was saying is, this administration is corrupt and rotten to the core, and there is no reason to believe a special investigation or Special Prosecutor will do anything to investigate Attorney General Eric Holder’s lies. After information was released this week saying Eric Holder knew about Fast and Furious as early as July 2010, despite his testimony in May 2011 that he had only learned of the Operation in the past few weeks, Issa did call for a Special Prosecutor. If that means an Inspector General investigation, we know they are worthless in an administration that seeks and uses lawlessness for it’s end purpose. We saw that when IG Gerald Walpin was “fired” by Obama for exposing AmeriCorp and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson (yes, the NBA player). A president cannot fire an Inspector General, but this president did.
I don’t know the next step – who can “investigate?” Perhaps impeachment for Holder should be the next step.
