Posted on 06/07/2017 8:45:02 PM PDT by ForYourChildren
The House Oversight Committee released a scathing report Wednesday that accuses former Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice of covering up Operation Fast and Furious and misleading Congress investigation into the botched gun-running operation.
The nearly 300-page report states that the Justice Department under Holder actively 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 at times being openly hostile to them.

Well I am confused.
Rachel Maddow said today:
“Dishonest Maddow: In Obama Administration, ‘There Was Never a Major Scandal’”
And zero media coverage we’ll get of a REAL scandal.
Here is more from Fox
[accuses former Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice of covering up Operation Fast and Furious and misleading Congress investigation into the botched gun-running operation]
Have we got a crime here that Holder can be arrested for?
Please let it be “Yes!”.
Duh. You found him in contempt and didn’t do a thing about it.
Just try to imagine the MSM response if this were a Republican Administration. Obama and Holder could have shot someone on camera and the MSM would not report it. Watch the response tomorrow if a Republican has the temerity to ask Comey if Obama/Lynch/Brennan or anyone outside the FBI discussed the Hillary Clinton investigation with him . The MSM will shield Obama forever.
He should be shot for treason.
After a fair trial, of course.
FBI Criminal Informant Complicit in Brian Terrys Death (PJM Exclusive)
Previously, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terrys death in Peck Canyon, Arizona was described as a chance meeting that led to a firefight: an illegal alien rip crew working for the Sinaloa cartel was hoping to find other illegal aliens and to rob them at gunpoint. Instead, they stumbled across a Border Patrol unit and murdered Agent Terry.
Last week, the Washington Times offered a new version of the encounter: they reported that the rip crew was not hunting illegals, but Border Patrol teams with the intention of engaging them in combat.
Sources now tell PJ Media that neither version of events is accurate: the rip crew was not waiting for a chance encounter with other illegals, nor did the members intend to engage American law enforcement agents.
The rip crew was in Peck Canyon that evening with the intention of stealing money and drugs from a specific shipment of which they had prior knowledge.
The rip crew knew to be in Peck Canyon that December evening because a CI working for the FBI found out about a smuggling run from the FBI.
A source tells PJM that the FBI knew from wiretaps that the CI was using their information to set up an ambush. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its own CIs and communications intercepts was also aware of the planned assault. Neither the DEA nor FBI warned Border Patrol about the expected criminal activity.
Multiple sources tell PJM that this third weapon disappeared because it was the weapon carried by the FBI CI who ran the rip crew. When it was recovered near the scene of the murder and subsequently traced by the ATF, it traced back to the FBI CI via the gun shop in Texas where it was purchased.
Neither agency bothered to warn Border Patrol to keep their BORTAC teams out of Peck Canyon that evening. As a direct result of this FBI and DEA failure combined with Homeland Security forcing BORTAC units to carry less-lethal beanbag rounds in some of their primary weapons Brian Terrys under-armed four-man unit walked into an ambush against a heavily armed rip crew, at least five of whom were carrying rifles.
Brian Terrys murder was entirely preventable. The incompetence of the DEA and FBI let his Border Patrol unit walk into an ambush. After the ambush, it appears the FBI tampered with evidence to cover up that one of their informants was involved with the murder of a federal agent.
Republican House, Senate and President and what happens to corrupt dims? Nothing.
I would remind Rachel Maddow that Benghazi was a major scandal and four men died and Zero and Hitlery still have blood on their hands.
Seems reasonable to me.
She is worse than an idiot.
She is evil.
to bring down America!
Same old story.
Ok, so he’s accused of a cover-up. Now what?
A report is the rinos’ way if writing a strongly worded letter. Nothing will come of it.
You know why?
The “Republicans” in the house and senate are just Democrats that ran as a “Republican” for their seat.
Exactly how the democrats get away with what would put you and I away for life. Ohhhhh and they would prosecute us too.
Can we citizen arrest him as no one else will?
The committee has no power. Committees have subpoena power and can make referrals to the FBI, or charge contempt. They have no enforcement power to do a single thing. They are inquired only.
What were they gonna do.. turn Holder over to his own department?
You’re 100 percent correct.
