Editor’s Note – The truth has no agenda, but tracking words and deeds does lead to an agenda, and it is proven via emails circulating throughout the DoJ that Holder and his people have an agenda, titled, ‘Stonewall’. Tracking these same words and deeds also should lead to an arrest.
There are an estimated 39 lawmakers calling for the resignation of Holder over the Fast and Furious event, but one must ask, why not 535 lawmakers calling for his resignation?
In the end, AG Eric Holder has a nefarious history and this man is an accessory to murders on both sides of the border, guilty of perjury, and clearly obstruction of justice, not to mention being a callous person when it came to offering words to the family of slain Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry after being embarrassed while testifying in Congress.
He should not only be dis-barred, he should be in chains. Without a license to practice law, he has no job and can fret about his non-work performance from behind bars.
New emails: DOJ, Eric Holder manipulated press for favorable ‘Fast and Furious’ coverage
By Mathew Boyle
Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department sought to manipulate reporters’ coverage of Operation Fast and Furious during the days preceding a November 1 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, new emails obtained by The Daily Caller indicate.
Emails between senior Justice Department officials and investigators in the office of Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley show that congressional staffers leading the investigation into Operation Fast and Furious requested information about Operation Wide Receiver — a Bush administration program – and other similar cases, more than a full month before the DOJ leaked information to selected media outlets on October 31.
That Halloween document dump from the DOJ seemed calculated to depict Grassley’s investigation as partisan in nature.
The emails show Grassley staffers inquiring about the Bush administration program as early as mid-September.
“Mr. Newell told us in his interview that there were 2 or 3 cases other than Fast and Furious where there were unsuccessful controlled deliveries at the border,” wrote a Grassley investigator on September 13, to a Holder staffers handling congressional inquiries on Operation Fast and Furious. “He said these examples occurred in the 2007 to 2008 timeframe.”
Bill Newell was the lead Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agent tasked to Fast and Furious.
“In one case,” the Grassley staffer wrote, “he said the guns actually crossed the border but through some miscommunication they were not interdicted on the other side by the Mexican authorities. In the other case, the trafficker did not actually cross the border, but evaded U.S. law enforcement surveillance on this side of the border.
