Federal Judge To Eric Holder: Sorry, But You Can’t Cover Up Fast & Furious Anymore

Federal Judge Says Eric Holder Can’t Bar Transparency On Fast & Furious – Independent Journal Review

Remember “Fast & Furious”? No, not that really bad but commercially successful Vin Diesel series. We’re talking about the Department of Justice’s involvement in running assault rifles to drug cartels and failing to track them, leading to the murder of hundreds of Mexican civilians and border patrol agent Brian Terry.

From Politico via Fox Nation:

A federal judge has rejected Attorney General Eric Holder’s attempt to keep the courts from wading into the “Fast and Furious” documents dispute that led to him being held in contempt by the House last year.

In a ruling Monday night, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson turned down the Justice Department’s request to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee after President Barack Obama asserted executive privilege to prevent some records about the administration’s response to the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal from being turned over to Congress.

“This case presents the sort of question that the courts are traditionally called upon to resolve,” Jackson said in her 44-page decision, issued more than five months after lawyers argued the issue in her packed courtroom and more than a year after the House committee filed suit. “Dismissing the case without hearing it would in effect place the court’s finger on the scale, designating the executive as the victor based solely on his untested assertion that the privilege applies,” she wrote.

A Justice Department spokesman said officials there were reviewing the decision.

Amazing that some Democratic partisans will either say, “but why would you want to care about Fast of Furious?” or will otherwise lie and say that “Fast & Furious was the exact same thing as George W. Bush’s gunwalking schemes!” – which didn’t wind up killing hundreds of people.

Fast fact: Even though Eric Holder was the only Attorney General to be held in contempt by the House of Representatives, he’s still the AG for the “post-partisan” Obama administration!

Let’s grow up and get some of that transparency the American people were promised.
