HOLDER CLAIMED ONLY RECENT KNOWLEDGE OF GUNWALKING; DOCUMENTS INDICATE OTHERWISE
by Sharon Rondeau
(Oct. 8, 2011) — [Editor’s Note: The “White House Insider” website contains profanity not normally referenced by The Post & Email. However, we felt the information provided by the Insider was unique and pertinent to the topic of Eric Holder’s possible demise as Attorney General in the faux Obama regime as events have transpired with the Fast and Furious operation.]
CBS News has reported that Eric Holder was not truthful when he stated that he had discovered the existence only recently of Operation Fast and Furious, a gun-supplying program which sold firearms to middlemen who then sold them to Mexican criminals, resulting in at least one death of an American citizen. During testimony to Congress on May 3, 2011, Holder stated that he had learned of Operation Fast and Furious only “over the last few weeks.” However, documentation has surfaced which indicates that he was briefed on the initiative during the summer of 2010 in five or more memos.
A memo from National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) Director Michael Walther on July 5, 2010 “clearly pointed out that his agents in Arizona were supporting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in Operation Fast and Furious.”
While CBS states that Holder’s testimony to Congress “directly contradicts” documentation obtained by CBS, the online news magazine Human Events labels Holder’s statement an outright lie.
In May, an anonymous informant known as “White House Insider” had predicted, “Eric Holder’s gonna fall” (last paragraph), stating that he himself would take part in Holder’s ousting.
Regarding the charge that Holder lied to Congress during his testimony on May 3, 2011, Department of Justice officials stated that Holder’s account to Congress was “consistent and truthful.”
Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas has requested that a Special Counsel be appointed to investigate whether or not Holder made misleading or false statements about his knowledge of the Fast and Furious program.
Atty. Orly Taitz, who visited Washington, DC on September 22, 2011 and met with aides and counsel to several congressmen and senators to discuss Obama’s use of a Connecticut-issued social security number, stated that she had “had a very positive meeting” with members of Smith’s staff.
One of the Department of Justice’s stated goals is to “seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior,” but Holder has been selective over those he prosecutes for crime, particularly if they are “his people.”
Darrell Issa, the chairman of the Government Oversight Committee, stated in a recent video that “heads should roll” over the Fast and Furious operation. Ten Arizona sheriffs are also “demanding” an investigation.
