Perhaps waiting 24 hours after Obama Attorney General Eric Holder attempted a “wag the dog” moment yesterday in scrambling together a news conference on an alleged Iranian terror plot the very day it was announced Congressional investigators would be issuing subpoenas on the deadly Fast and Furious debacle, that subpoena against Mr. Holder and other senior officials at the Department of Justice has now been issued.
An official statement from Congressman Darrell Issa, who has headed the investigation into Fast and Furious and the seeming Obama DOJ coverup, said the following:
“Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged,” the California Republican said in a statement. “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.”
It appears increasingly certain that questions regarding Attorney General Eric Holder’s possible perjury testimony from earlier in the year will be front and center during the upcoming Congressional testimony by Mr. Holder to Congress. Mr. Holder stated under oath back in March that he had just learned of operation Fast and Furious, though documents later uncovered during the investigation detailed repeated updates on the program to AG Holder months prior to that initial claim by the Attorney General. Those same documents also appear to link knowledge of the failed operation that has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens, as well as a U.S. border agent, to members of President Obama’s White House staff – and quite possibly the president himself.
