Go watch TV and learn what is really going on. You can do this by watching CNN or MSNBC, and Bloomberg. Reade the WP, or NY Times as they have good reporting.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department would hand over documents to the Republican-led House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that had been withheld by Democratic former President Barack Obama’s administration. 
 
The agreement reached by Republican President Donald Trump’s administration will effectively 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. 
 
Congressional Republicans have been pressing the Justice Department for years about the operation. Named after a movie about car racing, the operation sought to curb gun-trafficking criminals who were selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels. 
 
In June 2012, the Republican-led House voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder, an Obama appointee, in contempt for failing to turn over documents about the operation. The committee sued Holder for access to the documents in August 2012. Obama asserted executive privilege to block the disclosure of the documents. 
 
Democrats at the time accused Republicans of engaging in a partisan witch hunt. 
 
In an effort to build bigger cases against major gun traffickers who were selling arms to Mexican cartels, U.S. law enforcement officials elected not to prosecute lower-level offenders transporting more than 2,000 illegal guns. 
 
The operation and its flaws became public after two of those firearms were found in Arizona at the scene of a fatal shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
 
In September 2012, the Justice Department’s inspector general released a report faulting 12 department employees for failures related to the operation. The report vindicated Holder, concluding he neither conceived the operation nor attempted a cover-up. 
 
Holder, now a partner at the law firm Covington and Burling LLP, could not be immediately reached at his office on Wednesday.

Some real news. The NRA takes to State of FL. to court over their new law on gun control. The kids who got this passed are great and some day should lead FL. They come from the school attacked, and other schools in the thinking part of FL. That does not include N FL as you will find the far right there. Hopefully after the kids take over the far right in NF will be moving back to rural GA and AL. That will narrow down the area with a lot of them, and then N. Fl. will really come back to life.

CriticalThinking: What is wrong with people who should be ecstatic after winning the Presidency, the House, and the Senate, but who spend much of their time focusing upon Hillary and President Obama? Are they capable of enjoying life without another conspiracy theory?

 

 

It's just bizarre. They're like adults who never got the memo that Santa Claus isn't real so they keep insisting if they just keep looking they'll find him.

It will be refreshing to see our DOJ seek justice for the American people that have known many things regarding something in government leadership did not smell right.

 

In the past decade there were two sets of rules, I am happy to see us moving back to one set for all.

 

Justice is on the way!!

'Fast and Furious' Docs' Will Show AG Holder Obstructed Justice

The release of documents related to the Obama-era "Fast and Furious" scandal will show that former Attorney General Eric Holder "systematically obstructed justice" for refusing to release the documents to Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa said Thursday.

 

Issa, R-Calif., had chaired the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in 2012, when Holder refused to turn over the documents, and remains on the committee.

 

"I think it will show Eric Holder was very involved in the obstruction of justice," he told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" co-host Sandra Smith Thursday.

 

"He had an active role, texting, emailing, helping people figure out not to deliver to Congress what we want and are lawfully entitled to."

 

On Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Justice Department will give the Oversight committee documents related to the "Fast and Furious" scandal, according to CNSnews.com.

 

His announcement came after six years of litigation after the Obama administration would not hand over all the documents the committee had subpoenaed.

 

Holder was the first Cabinet member held under contempt of Congress when he would not release the documents from the case, which involved allowing guns bought in the United States to be taken into Mexico in hopes of tracking them to Mexican drug and crime cartels.

 

Issa said the new search will allow his congressional committee to get some of the answers that have been sought for years, including in the case of Brian Terry, the border guard who was murdered in 2010 with one of the guns used in the gunwalking scheme.

 

"Eric Holder has systematically obstructed justice to the family and the American people and personally lied to me about the documents that were fully compliant with our request, claiming it was only 200 and something when thousands have been delivered," said Issa.

 

"A new search will allow us to get some of what we requested for in the beginning."

 

However, there are some who are still obstructing Sessions even now, as there are people with the DOJ who "do not want the same thing the American people want," said Issa.

 

Issa said the Trump administration has negotiated about the papers in "good faith," while Congress wants an appellate court decision that makes it clear that no president of either party "could ever again defy Congress the way [President] Barack Obama did."

 

The appellate court decision wasn't achieved, but the documents were released, and that shows the difference between the legislative and executive branches of the government, said Issa.

 

"The executive branch is maintaining the ability, theoretically, to do the same thing again and obstruct Congress for years," he said.

 

"Having said that, we have good decisions at the lower court that we believe in the long run will help Congress when we do these investigations again, regardless of party and the administration was very forthcoming. I found them reasonable to work with. Both of us got more than we wanted and in a reasonably timely fashion."
