Holder Maneuvers to Avoid Fast and Furious Lawsuit Brought by Judicial Watch

From Breitbart.

Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch. The lawsuit seeks the enforcement of open records requests relating to Operation Fast and Furious, as required by law.
Judicial Watch had filed, on June 22, 2012, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking all documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious and “specifically [a]ll records subject to the claim of executive privilege invoked by President Barack Obama on or about June 20, 2012.”

The administration has refused to comply with Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, and in mid-September the group filed a lawsuit challenging Holder’s denial. That lawsuit remains ongoing but within the past week President Barack Obama’s administration filed what’s called a “motion to stay” the suit. Such a motion is something that if granted would delay the lawsuit indefinitely.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said that Holder’s and Obama’s desire to continually hide these Fast and Furious documents is “ironic” now that they’re so gung-ho on gun control. “It is beyond ironic that the Obama administration has initiated an anti-gun violence push as it seeking to keep secret key documents about its very own Fast and Furious gun walking scandal,” Fitton said in a statement.

Holder has been arrogant and flippant about this whole crime. After he was held in contempt by Congress, he celebrated by going to Disney World.

Both Obama and Holder  lied about and covered up their involvement in this disaster.   Discovered documents and memos prove that they lied.  Both obstructed justice by stonewalling Congress, preventing witness testimonies, and threatening to fire anyone who refused to go along with the coverup.

When’s the impeachment, or better yet, prosecution?

  1. Brian Terry will not get justice in this world, but he will in the next.

    As long as the media is in the pocket of the Democrats, there is no way Obama or Holder will be held accountable for their crimes.
