As Ed Morrissey writes, today, Rep. Darrell Issa tells Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice, “You’ve been served:”
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) today announced the issuance of a subpoena to Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr. for Justice Department documents related to the “Operation Fast and Furious” gun walking scandal.
“Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged,” said Chairman Issa. “The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It’s time we know the whole truth.”
“If Obama wanted to play it smart,” Ed adds, “he’d release everything in a rush, get in front of the cameras, and accept Holder’s resignation — whether it has been offered or not. Issa will eventually get the documents, and the longer Obama delays the inevitable in regard to both the documents and Holder, the closer to election time this will all play out. If Obama was really smart, he’d do all that late on Friday afternoon.”
From playing marathon golf tournaments to throwing Van Jones under the bus to ramming ObamaCare down America’s throats to being downgraded by S&P, is there anything this administration doesn’t do on Friday afternoon or over the weekend? It’s enough to make you want to head towards Six Flags Over Pittsburgh and take in The National Touring Company of the Wiz, Spinal Tap, and the president’s latest campaign fundraiser:
