- Posted by Chucky Parts on 18th June 2018. At long last, the American people may FINALLY get some answers with regards to the Obama administration’s infamous g*n trafficking scandal dubbed “Fast and Furious.” As the leftist progressives continue to look for non-existent Russian boogie men under their beds, the Trump administration is promising to release the documents pertaining to the scandal that former Attorney General, Eric Holder, refused to provide.
Fast and Furious was one of many scandals under the Obama
administration yet there were no special prosecutors appointed, no grand
juries convened, no leaked memos to the New York Times by way of a
friendly and oh-so-helpful professor from Columbia, and no mysterious
anonymous sources speaking to the Washington Post.
In case you have forgotten, Operation Fast and Furious was an
operation during the Obama regime that worked in coordination with
the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) in
which the federal government allowed criminals to buy g**s in
Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them as they were
transported into Mexico. However, the ATF lost track of more than 1,400
of the more than 2,000 g**s they allowed smugglers to buy.
Amanda Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to Fox News – “For over six years, the House Oversight Committee has fought for additional documents related
to Operation Fast and Furious. Today, the Committee finally reached a
conditional settlement with the Department of Justice. The Committee
seeks all relevant facts so we can learn from the mistakes made by the
Justice Department. We have a responsibility to uncover why they worked
so hard to hide this information from the Committee, the family of
slain border patrol agent Brian Terry, and the American people.”
Terry was murdered in 2010 by
an illegal alien with a weapon used in the epically botched Operation
Fast and Furious. He died in a gunfight between Border Patrol agents and
members of a six-man cartel “rip crew,” which patrolled the desert
along the U.S.-Mexico border looking for drug dealers to rob. The cartel
member suspected of k*****g Terry was apprehended in 2017.
Terry’s family, specifically his brother Kent Terry want the scandal
to be investigated and those responsible to be held accountable for
Yet, Obama consistently states his administration was
“scandal-free”. When reminded of scandals such as Fast and Furious that
took place on his watch, Obama referred to them as “phony scandals”.
American Thinker had
this to say of so-called “phony scandals” stating – “Phony scandals are
those that do not have a smidgeon of evidence of a crime, like alleged
Trump collusion with the Russians or obstruction of an investigation
that was never stopped or even slowed down. Phony scandals do not
produce body bags as the Obama administration produced in Benghazi and
during Operation Fast and Furious — the Obama administration’s
g*n-running operation in which it armed Mexican drug lords and cartels
with heavy weapons for which the U.S. Border Patrol had no match or
protection. That g*n-running operation led to the m****r of U.S. Border
Patrol agent Brian Terry.”
Well, it seems this announcement just blew the lid off of one of the Obama regime’s “phony scandals”…
– “The U.S. Justice Department has agreed to provide congressional
investigators confidential records on a failed g*n-trafficking operation
during the Obama administration known as “Fast and Furious” that long
has been criticized by Republican lawmakers.
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 g*n-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 g*n 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 g**s.”
According to Fox
News, the Justice Department entered into a conditional settlement
agreement with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The
settlement agreement was filed in federal court in Washington D.C. and
ended six years of litigation arising out of the Obama regime’s refusal
to produce records subpoenaed by the committee.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement – “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
