He also hid behind Obama’s skirt every time any investigation into questionable and wrong doing led up the chain to Holder, such as in the investigation of the botched federal gun running Operation Fast and Furious. When Congress followed the trial of evidence straight to Holder, Obama protected him by declaring executive privilege.
Current US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said that his department will be one of transparency. In living up to that claim, Sessions announced that the documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious that were withheld from investigators by Holder, will be released.
(Townhall) – 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. President Obama invoked executive privilege in June 2012 to prevent their release just hours before the contempt vote was held.
“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 a statement.
The Department stated the document release is part of “the conditional settlement agreement, filed in federal court in Washington D.C.” and “would end six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce documents requested by the Committee.” …
If a thorough study was made of every Attorney General in US History, it would most likely reveal that Obama’s first AG, Eric Holder was by far THE most corrupt AG in American history. Following in the footsteps of his leader – Obama – Holder decided to choose which laws he would enforce and which he wouldn’t – a perfectly illegal act.
