The House Oversight Committee has accused Eric Holder of misleading Congress regarding the investigation into the “Fast and Furious” gun running program. The program allowed firearms to be purchased in the U.S. by “straw purchasers,” who then sold the guns to Mexican drug cartels. Holder was Attorney General at the time the program was running. Cheryl Chumley writes at The Washington Times:
The House Oversight Committee let loose with a scathing assessment of Eric Holder in a recent report, accusing the Barack Obama-era attorney general of outright misleading Congress on its investigation of the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal.
And get this. Among the report’s 300 pages is the committee’s finding that Holder regarded the family of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry as a “nuisance.”
Terry, of course, was killed in December 2010 by a firearm believed to be part of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ Operation Fast and Furious program.
But key details of his death are fuzzy — like the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
“More than five years after Brian’s murder, the Terry family still wonders about key details of Operation Fast and Furious,” the report reads, Fox News reported “The Justice Department’s obstruction of Congress’s investigation contributed to the Terry family’s inability to find answers.”
