Last week, President Obama outrageously asserted “Executive Privilege” on tens of thousands of documents relating to the disastrous Operation Fast and Furious.
As you may know, under this program, the administration “walked” guns to Mexico so they could blame the increase violence on why they had to ramp up gun control here in the states.
Over 2,000 guns were “lost,” and in a horrible tragedy, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed by drug cartels, and two of the weapons were discovered at the scene of the crime.
Last year, administration officials wrote a letter to Congress claiming any guns ending up in the hands of Mexican cartels was unintentional.
In a stunning admission, that letter was later retracted when it was proved to be false.
And for months, the administration has been stonewalling a congressional investigation attempting to get to the bottom of what the administration knew and when they knew it.
Over 100,000 documents were requested by the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, but the White House has turned over less than 10,000.
This is a major scandal that can’t afford a whitewashing.
The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusal to turn over crucial documents this week.
Congress, the American people and, most importantly, the family of Brian Terry just want the truth about Operation Fast and Furious.
But President Obama and Eric Holder are barking back that we aren’t allowed to have it.
I want answers,
