Fast & Furious Wiretap Applications Reveal Senior DOJ Involvement
 

Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa has sent a letter to Eric Holder.

It outlines how senior officials at the DOJ in Washington Must Have Known about F&F !!!

No surprise, since those officials have been denying it all along, and they are prone to lie.

Apparently the evidence is in some wiretap applications.

Names are named.


Today, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder detailing how wiretap applications reveal how close senior officials at the Department of Justice were to Operation Fast & Furious.

According to Chairman Issa, the applications were approved from March to July of 2010. Each one contained a memo from Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer authorizing it on behalf of Mr. Holder. These memos were also marked for Emory Hurley, the lead prosecutor for Operation Fast & Furious.

The DOJ leadership has repeated many times that this was a local issue and senior officials in Washington, DC were not involved. Chairman Issa notes Mr. Holder said during his February 2, 2012 testimony that wiretap applications contained no information on Fast & Furious.



Guilty ....

Since senior officials signed off on these applications, the DOJ can no longer claim that if they knew about Fast & Furious they would have shut it down. These wiretap applications contained information on the tactics that were being used. The documents also showed that top ATF officials, not DOJ officials, were concerned about the number of weapons involved. Chairman Issa said it was ATF Deputy Director William Hoover who became concerned about the volume and demanded an exit strategy to end Fast & Furious as soon as possible. But when DOJ officials were confronted with the exact same information, they just let it go.



Hang 'em High !!




What would Clint Eastwood say ?

They are guilty they knew about it and no matter what they do now we all know they are trying to cover their own butts.

They knew and people died let justice be served.

(CBS News) The lead House Republican investigating Operation Fast and Furious, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), today said senior Justice Department officials had specific information that their federal agents were using controversial "gunwalking" tactics.

Justice Department officials have consistently denied that was the case. But today in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, Issa revealed that he has reviewed sealed wiretap applications in the case, which were signed off on the authority of Holder's Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer. Issa wrote Holder "having seen the wiretap applications, we now know that the information coming from the (Justice) Department has been misleading. That must stop."


Good for Issa. I don't usually go in for witch hunts, but Eric Holder is the second most prolific criminal in the Obama administration. He needs to be put in gen pop. He's a handsome guy...he'll be someone's girlfriend in about a week.
