Federal Judge Orders Holder's DOJ to Hand Fast and Furious Doc to Congress
You lose, Eric Holder. And Barack Obama.
WASHINGTON – A federal judge has ordered the Justice Department to provide Congress with a list of documents that are at the center of a long-running battle over a failed law enforcement program called Operation Fast and Furious.
In a court proceeding Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson set an Oct. 1 deadline for producing the list to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
The Justice Department says the documents should remain confidential and President Barack Obama has invoked executive privilege in an effort to protect them from public disclosure.
It would be nice to see this investigation go somewhere. It's not at all clear how, assuming their side of the story is correct, the government could have tracked firearms in Mexico's drug war without actually tracking them.
It is clear that while Fast and Furious was in full swing, Holder, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were blaming that war on our Second Amendment. Coincidence? That doesn't seem likely.
