    The Justice Department announced Wednesday it would hand over documents related to the Obama-era Fast and Furious gun scandal to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Former President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder had previously refused to produce documents requested by Oversight, documents which former Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz at the time called “critical” to pursuing the investigation.

  • Eric Holder Weighs in on McCabe Firing: It's 'Dangerous' to Attempt to Please 'Erratic President'

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder is among the high-profile people who are speaking out on the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Since Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe two days before he was set to retire, Holder said the decision was cruel at the very least but warned it's also dangerous to “please an increasingly erratic President”:
  • Slain Border Patrol Agent's Brother Pleads for Trump, Sessions to Reopen 'Fast and Furious' Case

    The brother of a murdered Border Patrol agent is calling on President Donald Trump to keep a promise he made on the campaign trail and reopen the "Fast and Furious" case. Brian Terry was killed in 2010 by an illegal immigrant with a weapon used in the botched "gun-walking" program Operation Fast and Furious. His brother, Kent Terry, tweeted at Trump on Saturday, asking him to "reopen the books" and get to the bottom of the scandal that cost his brother his life.

    Washington (CNN) A crowded Democratic House primary in the Houston area has become a stand-in for the broader battle within the party between progressives who backed Bernie Sanders and members of the establishment. The controversy erupted more than a week ago, when the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the party's political arm for House races, unleashed a scathing attack against journalist and activist Laura Moser, one of seven candidates in the Texas 7th District Democratic primary to take on Republican Rep. John Culberson this fall. Now, with two days left before the Texas primary on Tuesday, the infighting has opened wounds...

    The Department of Justice announced Wednesday additional documents related to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal during the Obama administration will be released to the House Oversight Committee. The documents were previously withheld by Attorney General Eric Holder, who was voted in civil and criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to turn them over. “The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions released in...

    Upon hearing that former President Barack Obama recently boasted that he had a scandal-free administration, my first thought after regaining my faculties was: How can I possibly cram all the evidence refuting this in a little bitty column? Then I read that what he actually said was, "We didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us." At first blush, that sounds better, right? Because I assume he doesn't mean he's incapable of being embarrassed. After a little more thought, though, it occurred to me that this construction just highlights the real reason he has apparently deluded himself into thinking he served...
  • Obama Not Embarrassed by His Scandals?

    When Barack Obama spoke at the 12th annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston, MA, many of us scratched our heads as to why the event was off-the-record. No photography, recording, or social media posting about Obama’s appearance was allowed. Obviously, he would not be talking about golf. But, with over 3,500 people in attendance, there was no way this speech would be hidden for long. As expected, a recording of Obama’s appearance was leaked. Obama said a lot of things over the course of an hour, but I’d like to focus on his claim that, while some people in...

    Eric Holder, former President Barack Obama’s attorney general, confirmed Wednesday that he’s considering throwing his hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential race. “We’ll see,” he said during a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor in Washington, DC. He was asked if he’s mulling a run for the White House because he’s learning how to raise funds and giving political speeches. “I think I’ll make a decision by the end of the year about whether or not there is another chapter in my government service,” he replied. Holder, who served as attorney general from 2009 to 2015, has...

    Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), a leading conservative member of the House....told Breitbart News Daily on Wednesday that he believes that there is an interconnectivity between various high-profile Barack Obama-era scandals and the latest revelations about corruption at the Department of Justice and FBI. Gosar was asked during the interview on the SiriusXM 125 Patriot Channel show about the corruption on display in the release of the famed memo from House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) that detailed FISA court abuses by the FBI and DOJ in the lead-up to the 2016 election and in...

    According to Vulture, CBS is “ordering a pilot for Main Justice, a show based on the life of former attorney general Eric Holder.” ... It will be fascinating to see how the show handles Holder shaking down corporations. Apparently, you could make a DOJ lawsuit go away by forking over a substantial sum to to your favorite (left-wing) charity. Hopefully it will cover Operation Fast and Furious, the idiotic ATF “gun walking” scheme that resulted in Border Patrol agent Brian Terry being murdered with a government-supplied rifle....Actually, we probably won’t learn much from the show. Vulture tells us, “Holder is...

    Larry Schweikart is NYT’s #1 bestselling author. His analysis on the current FBI and DOJ scandals are outlined below in a series of fascinating tweets. Schwiekart begins his thread with a link to an article by the brilliant journalist (a dying breed), Sheryl Attkinson, that addresses how the walls are beginning to close in on the FBI. In a message to his followers, Schweikart admits his reluctance to have to dissect Attkinson’s article in a series of tweets or a “thread”. Schweikart tweets: “The last thing I wanted to do this morning was a thread, but alas, the situation requires...

    Combine a hitman, a suspicious federal agent, a world-famous graphic novelist and a daredevil journalist and you get a Molotov cocktail of mishaps in Phoenix native and former truck driver Jeffrey Yochim’s pulp thriller. Collateral Crimes (West Wave Publishing, $14.99) chronicles the adventures of novelist and murder witness Jonathan Starker, who hitches a ride to a comic book convention and finds himself on the run from an ATF agent and a ruthless hitman. The story, a slow burner at the start but fast-paced enough to keep readers flipping pages – think murder, truck hijackings and pesky witnesses – grows more...

    "Betrayed." Victor Avila is a survivor. Soft-spoken but iron-willed, he dedicated his life to law enforcement and to his country. Yet, the feds are now fighting tooth and nail to bury the full truth about the 2011 ambush by Los Zetas drug cartel thugs in Mexico that left him gravely wounded and his partner, special agent Jaime Zapata, dead. This week, two of the Mexican gangsters convicted in the horror on Highway 57 between Mexico City and Monterrey were sentenced to double life terms in prison.

    Federal agents caught the last suspect in Terry’s murder this week. Earlier this week, federal agents from both the United States and Mexico apprehended another suspect in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Jesus Rosario Favela Astorga was arrested in Mexico Monday and charged with first-degree murder, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday. Astorga is believed to be the final suspect linked to the death of Terry. However, the past administration played a major role in facilitating his tragic demise. Without the dangerous “Fast and Furious” gun-running scheme initiated by Barack Obama’s Justice Department, Agent Terry may...

    Mexican law enforcement officers last weekend arrested the man believed to be the final fugitive from the “rip crew” that engaged in a 2010 gunfight between Border Patrol agents that resulted in the death of agent Brian Terry. Jesus Rosario Favela Astorga was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the killing of Terry. "The arrest of Favela Astorga resulted from the unwavering commitment of the United States and our law enforcement partners in Mexico to bring to justice those responsible for the murder of Agent Brian Terry, who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving his country," Alana Robinson, the acting...

    As Democrats and Left-wing “progressive” anti-gun activists continue to push for gun bans and other erosions of the Second Amendment following the terrible mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, it is well to remember that, once upon a time, a pair of notable Democrats did their best to ensure that kind of violence occurred as often as possible south of the U.S. border. Early in President Obama’s tenure, he and Attorney General Eric Holder cooked up a scheme to send thousands of U.S.-based “assault weapons” — that is, semi-automatic rifles which cosmetically resemble real assault weapons — into the...

    On Monday's New Day show on CNN, during a discussion of the letter that Barack Obama gave to Donald Trump as the former President was leaving office, conservative CNN commentator Jack Kingston recalled several of the scandals of the Obama administration. Liberal CNN commentator Bakari Sellers claimed with a straight face that President Obama was "eight years scandal-free." He also took a shot at Fox News for covering Obama-era scandals, dismissing the coverage as "talking points."

    Okay, it’s not exactly an apology tour because he spoke the words while on U.S. soil. But it was an apology for America by Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson while standing alongside Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray Caso and Mexican Secretary of Government Miguel Angel Osorio Chong on Thursday during a press conference at the State Department. Speaking about the “illicit drug trade” while holding his hand over his chest for several seconds as a symbol of admitted guilt, Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson argued that Mexico’s organized crime problem is the fault of the Unites States and...

    It seems that there has been a plague of gun violence by inner city youths. It is not just in Chicago or other large cities but even in smaller communities. How can these kids afford guns which cost hundreds of dollars? How are they getting them since it is illegal for them to purchase them? I know that they use "straw buyers" who do not have criminal records to purchase the guns for them. It appears that they often use girl friends or female relatives to actually buy the guns for them. However I think that there is more than...
