It only took 4 years and suing the government to get documents that belong to the taxpayers regarding Fast and Furious.
Fast and Furious is the name given to an operation whereby Obama’s trouble-makers sent arms to Mexican banditos with the hope they create so much havoc in Mexico, the U.S. would be forced to allow in illegals.
As reported by CNN,
House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said Friday that the Obama administration has turned over documents related to the “Fast and Furious” operation.
The House voted in 2012 to hold then-Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to turn over documents tied to the botched gun-running sting — a discredited operation that had become a sharp point of contention between Democrats and Republicans.
Chaffetz said the committee is still seeking additional records.
“Today, under court order, DOJ turned over some of the subpoenaed documents,” Chaffetz, a Utah Republican, said in a statement. “The committee, however, is entitled to the full range of documents for which it brought this lawsuit. Accordingly, we have appealed the District Court’s ruling in order to secure those additional documents.”
As part of its long-running investigation into the operation, the House Oversight Committee subpoenaed documents from the administration. But the White House declined to provide them, claiming some of the materials are protected under Obama’s executive privilege. After a legal fight over the issue, a federal court ordered the administration in January to hand over the documents, and on Friday, the committee received thousands of pages related to the operation.
“The department believes the information being provided to the committee, along with material previously disclosed, fully satisfies the committee’s interest in understanding the department’s response to congressional inquiries regarding Operation Fast and Furious,” the Department of Justice said in a statement late Friday afternoon.
The media wants us to believe that Fast and Furious is a “gun-walking” operation that allowed roughly 2,000 guns into Mexico with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. Interesting, when you consider that in order to walk the weapons in, you are likely violating the country’s gun laws.
It would also stand to reason that the group walking the weapons in to the bad guys must know who the bad guys are. So in other words, Obama and Holder were ARMING TERRORISTS! Or did I miss something?
But it gets worse, because Holy Benghazi: two guns found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s fatal shooting were linked to the operation. Guns from the operation have also been linked to an unknown number of Mexican civilians’ deaths.
So we are clear, Obama and Holder initiated a program they claim was initiated on ferreting out the bad guys selling guns, so they allowed guns to go into Mexico (illegally), then got both American and Mexican citizens killed.
That’s is what Obama would call a successful operation. Unfortunately, the disruption Fast and Furious was meant to call didn’t wreak enough havoc for Americans to roll over on illegal immigration.
The Democrats will just have to continue trying to allow millions of Mexicans unfettered access to America the way they have been doing it for decades.
