TRUMP JUST BLINDSIDED OBAMA! Granting New Investigation Into His Crimes After He Was Caught Red Handed

We are now getting reports that the Justice Department has agreed to provide congressional investigators classified records on the Barack Hussein Obama’s failed g*n-running operation named after the wildly successful movie franchise about street racing “Fast and Furious.”

Later Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed that the Justice Department would hand over documents to the Republican-led House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that had been previously withheld by President Barack Hussein Obama’s administration. and this agreement reached by Republican President Donald Trump’s administration will put to an end a six-year-long legal battle in which the committee had gone to federal court to try to enforce a subpoena it had issued to obtain the records back in 2011.

Back in June of 2012, the Republican-led House voted to hold Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for not turning over documents about the illegal operation which has resulted in many deaths in Mexico thanks to firearms which were paid for by the American Taxpayer. The committee then sued Holder for access to the documents in August 2012 but Obama enacted executive privilege to block the disclosure of the documents. Makes you wonder what he was hiding?

This operation is said to have been set up to build bigger cases against major g*n traffickers who were selling arms to Mexican cartels but U.S. law enforcement officials chose to not prosecute lower-level offenders who would transport more than 2,000 illegal g**s.

Of course, Democrats at the time accused Republicans of engaging in a partisan witch hunt, not unlike the one they are trying to pull with President Trump and the fake Russian Collusion narrative.

Eric Holder who now a partner at the law firm Covington and Burling LLP, of course, could not be immediately reached at his office on Wednesday for a statement.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

Members of a congressional committee at a public hearing Wednesday blasted former President Barack Obama and his attorney general for allegedly covering up an investigation into the d***h of a Border Patrol agent k****d as a result of a botched government g*n-running project known as Operation Fast and Furious.

The House Oversight Committee also Wednesday released a scathing, nearly 300-page report that found Holder’s Justice Department tried to hide the facts from the loved ones of slain Border Patrol Brian Terry – seeing his family as more of a “nuisance” than one deserving straight answers – and slamming Obama’s assertion of executive privilege to deny Congress access to records pertaining to Fast and Furious.

“[Terry’s d***h] happened on Dec. 14, 2010, and we still don’t have all the answers,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, committee chairman, said of Terry’s d***h. “Brian Terry’s family should not have to wait six years for answers.”

Terry died in a gunfight between Border Patrol agents and members of a six-man cartel “rip crew,” which regularly patrolled the desert along the U.S.-Mexico border looking for drug dealers to rob. The cartel member suspected of slaying the Border Patrol agent, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, was apprehended in April of this year by a joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force.

Terry’s d***h exposed Operation Fast and Furious, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) operation in which the federal government allowed criminals to buy g**s in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them as they were transported into Mexico. But the agency lost track of more than 1,400 of the 2,000 g**s they allowed smugglers to buy. Two of those g**s were found at the scene of Terry’s k*****g.

“More than five years after Brian’s m****r, the Terry family still wonders about key details of Operation Fast and Furious,” the committee’s report states. “The Justice Department’s obstruction of Congress’s investigation contributed to the Terry family’s inability to find answers.”

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, testified Wednesday in front of the committee, accusing DOJ and ATF officials of obstructing the investigation and working to silence ATF agents who informed the Senate of Fast and Furious.

“The Department of Justice and ATF had no intention of looking for honest answers and being transparent,” said Grassley, now chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a staunch supporter of whistleblowers.

“In fact, from the onset, bureaucrats employed shameless delay tactics to obstruct the investigation.”

One of those silenced ATF agents, John Dodson, testified Wednesday that he remains “in a state of purgatory” since objecting to Fast and Furious and has been the subject of reprisals and ridicule at the agency.

“That decision, the single act of standing up and saying, ‘What we are doing is wrong’… instantly took my standing from being that of an agent of the government – to an enemy of the state,” Dodson said. “ATF and DOJ officials implemented an all-out campaign to silence and discredit me… Suffice to say, the last six to seven years at ATF have not been the best for me or my career.”

Grassley’s and Dodson’s testimony reinforced findings of the report, which states that the Justice Department knew before Terry’s d***h that the ATF was “walking” firearms to Mexico and knew the day after the agent’s d***h that Fast and Furious g**s were involved in the shootout — despite denying these facts to the media. It goes on to state that the Justice Department’s internal investigation focused more on spinning the story to avoid negative media coverage than looking into lapses by either the DOJ or ATF.

Several emails revealed in the report appear to indicate that some Justice Department staffers were working to keep information from political appointees at the department.

“I don’t want to jinx it but it really is astounding that the plan worked — so far,” former Deputy Attorney General James Cole wrote in an email to Holder, according to the report.

The report also says that Holder’s Justice Department stonewalled inquiries from Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and deceptively told him that the “ATF makes every effort to interdict” firearms purchased by straw buyers. The controversial act of straw purchases – where a person who is prohibited from buying firearms uses another person to buy a g*n on his or her behalf – has been a popular method that Mexico’s drug cartels use to obtain g**s.

“There are important reasons for not giving Grassley everything he is asking for: it would embolden him in future fights and would ‘use up’ a lot of the material that we will eventually need to release to (California Rep. Darrell) Issa . . . as the oversight struggle continues,” the Office of Legislative Affairs Assistant Attorney General Ron Welch said in an email to DOJ colleagues.”
