Fast and Furious: To put this in perspective, Congressman Darrell Issa’s House Oversight Committee received a letter from the Department of Justice which Issa says in the video below “was in fact an untruthful, a lie, a false letter that now have been retracted.” See, this is how Government is privileged to handle a crime. If they lie in writing, they just retract the letter, as though it never happened. After Holder’s little temper tantrum in the video below, Issa says the following to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly:
Well, certainly one of the reasons we doubt the legitimacy of that claim is, on Feb. 4 , we received what was in fact an untruthful, a lie, a false letter that has now been retracted,” Issa said. “Lanny Breuer, one of his chief aides and number three at Justice, was in Mexico lobbying for more gun-walking. Additional evidence shows that [U.S. agent] Jaime Zapata was killed with a similar program weapon. In other words, this was a policy change that happened and continued up until fairly recently. We need to get to the bottom of it.”
In addition, Issa said that if Holder wants to show he’s cooperating with the congressional investigation and is interested in really ending gun-walking, he’d fork over the rest of the lawfully-subpoenaed documents he’s still hiding from Congress.
The inspector general at Justice has 80,000 pages and we have 6,000 pages, but even in those 6,000 pages we find damning evidence that high-ranking people in Justice knew all along and not only didn’t stop this program, but believed in it,” Issa said. [In the video, Issa says the documents could easily be put on a thumb-drive].
