Attorney General Eric Holder holds the keys to what might bring the entire Obama administration down. His failure to comply is no more disturbing than Congressman Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, seemingly unable to finish the investigation. As a result, the hearings on Holder’s involvement in “Operation Fast and Furious”, aka “Gun Walker”, appear to be going nowhere.
In a ”correspondence dated January 4, 2012, Congressman Issa, Chairman of the committee, said, ‘The Department of Justice’s conduct in the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious has been nothing short of shameful.’” “From his initial denials that nothing improper occurred, to efforts to silence whistleblowers who wanted to tell Congress what really happened, to its continuing refusal to discuss or share documents related to this cover-up, the Justice Department has fought tooth and nail to hide the full truth about what occurred.”

There have been numerous hearings; during one on December 8,2011, Attorney General Holder refused to take responsibility. Now, in his latest statement, issued before another hearing held on February 2, Chairman Issa said, “The truth is that the American people will be well served if the Attorney General comes clean, and as the nation’s top law enforcement officer, takes responsibility for this debacle. Of course more problems developed at the February hearing.
With 62 Congressman and two Senators calling for the ouster of Holder, the Attorney General should use this new opportunity to tell what he knows, to address this scandal fully and accept responsibility.”
Where is the hardball, Congressman Issa? If you have been intimidated, then hire an independent prosecutor to subpoena Holder; if he fails to show up, issue a warrant for his arrest.
It’s time to regain your focus as you seem to be distracted with fourteen additional hearings, none as important as the issue at hand.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it; I’m J.C., and I approve this message.
