Senator Lindsay Graham spelled out a clear reason why we require a special

independent counsel. Well done!

The hypocrisy is there for everyone to see.

All I see here is more bipartisan bickering.

Lindsey Graham said near the end of the video (and I paraphrase) "the shoe is now on the other foot, and now the left is unwilling to compromise with the right".

I can see his point, however he is arguing semantics.

Holder already told him, what he has done is no different than what was done when Obama was a senator. The only thing that seems to be different is what it is called.

Here is another point of view: Legal Contributor Peter Johnson.



Clearly, a special counsel is required.

I hope Holder enjoys his time in a Federal Prison.

ANYONE affiliated with this scandal should.

So basically Holder wants to commit crimes, then have his federal buddies prosecute.

-paid prosecuter "whoops- I think we lost some special evidence"

-Holder "whoops indeed",

Those Crooks. I hope they get fried like bacon.

Eric Holders actions stink to high heaven.

I think Senator Lindsey Graham has done the best job so far at making a case

against the Obama administration.

And in case anyone was wondering IF Speaker John Boehner was "allegedly" somehow "negotiating" with Holder....

Well that was apparently all BeeEss.

It looks like more than one "journalist" started the insane jealous rumor.

It looks like somebody exposed them.

Somebody at Politico is one.

Matthew Boyle at The Daily Caller found another incident at Politico regarding Fast & Furious. On Monday, Politico writers Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan reported Speaker John Boehner’s office is continuing informal discussions with the Department of Justice.

This is not true and Speaker Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel confirmed this is an email to Mr. Boyle.

“There are no talks between the Speakers’ office and the Department of Justice aimed at resolving this – and any such discussions would be handled by Chairman Issa and his staff,” Steel said in an email. “There is no daylight between the House Republican leadership and the Oversight Committee on this issue. We are all committed to holding the Department of Justice accountable.”



And somebody at the New York times also.

This isn’t the first time Mr. Sherman and Mr. Bresnahan have done this. On May 10 they published an article claiming the GOP leadership wanted to go slow with contempt charges against Mr. Holder. However later that very same day Speaker Boehner said at a press conference that he full supports the Fast & Furious investigation and all options are on the table.

Just a week ago Charlie Savage at The New York Times was caught reporting false information about Speaker Boehner’s office. As I’ve shown through the past year Mr. Savage has a history of whitewashing the facts about Fast and Furious.


Politico Gets Fast And Furious Wrong...Again


Those writers MUST be nuts !!

Mr Graham knows they are trying to put in the fix.

How long till this man shows up with a massive heart attack =s

He is asking legitimate question on matters of national security and the attorney that is put in charge Mr Holder wants to have one of his buddies investigate.

Do these people even comprehend what conflict of interest means.

Well, wait a minute. All of these scandals can be moved to the back burner.

- Appoint a Special Prosecutor .....it will take time to complete the investigation

- Eric Holder then resigns in disgrace over Fast & Furious

Suddenly, the bad news is mostly behind them.

--------
I'm not sure they are smart enough to do it.

Senator Grahams performance was stellar.


If a Special Prosecutor was mandatory for Valerie Plame , then it's mandatory

to investigate - LeakyGate - at the White House.

From Sen. Lindsay Grahams first question it appears he already knows who the

leaker is ! - The Leaker in- chief is National Security Advisor Tom Donilon.
