NEW PROOF OF HOLDER COVER-UP
DEMAND FAST & FURIOUS INDICTMENTS
DEMAND FAST & FURIOUS INDICTMENTS
URGENT: The Obama Administration's "Fast & Furious" criminal cover up TODAY is UNRAVELING, and GRASSROOTS PRESSURE MUST BUILD NOW TO IMPEACH AND INDICT ERIC HOLDER FOR HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS!
Vital documents were leaked earlier this week to the House Oversight Committee that FINALLY revealed responsive information to subpoenas issued on Holder months ago – specifically, a set of wiretap applications that prove high officials at the Justice Department AUTHORIZED the illegal and deadly "gun walking" tactics that put American weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartel killers.
Attorney General Eric Holder has falsely maintained UNDER OATH in testimony before Congress – committing felony perjury – that knowledge of these illicit tactics did not reach him or the upper echelons of his department.
This revelation of internal documents that shred Holder's lies are FINALLY shoving the timid Speaker John Boehner and other Republican leadership to realize that WE WILL NOT STOP IN OUR DEMAND FOR JUSTICE!
THEY MUST BACK CHAIRMAN ISSA, ENFORCE THE LAW AND FILE CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS CHARGES AGAINST HOLDER, WHILE INTICTMENT AND IMPEACHMENT CHARGES ARE BEING PREPARED!
Boehner, who just CANNOT seem to resist a bad deal, has been maneuvering and dithering behind the scenes for weeks, undermining Chairman Issa and inexplicably seeking escapes routes for Holder. THIS MUST STOP NOW!
NO MAN IS ABOVE THE LAW – HOLDER AND OBAMA MUST BE HELD TO ACCOUNT FOR THE BLOODY TRAVESTY OF FAST & FURIOUS, IF AMERICA'S RULE OF LAW IS TO BE UPHELD!
Holder and his corrupt DOJ, of course, think they can keep lying and stonewalling through the general election, and dodge accountability for the deaths of TWO federal agents and uncounted civilians on both sides of our bloody southwestern border. The Justice Department sent a letter to the House Republican leadership immediately following the leaked document revelations, offering to work out a deal for belatedly releasing some of the "Fast & Furious" information covered by those long-defied subpoenas. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE. NOW IS THE TIME FOR INDICTMENTS!
As House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) said in an angry letter challenging Holder's intentions and honesty in this offer, it's increasingly clear as this cover up unravels why Holder won't comply with Congressional subpoenas, and doesn't want Congressional investigators to see the documents he is refusing to surrender.
In a Fox News interview on Wednesday, Issa said he would not reveal the identity of his source for the documents, reminding listeners that other "Fast & Furious" whistleblowers have experienced punitive – and illegal – retaliation from their superiors, particularly at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
Despite the Obama administration's best efforts at a cover-up, Congressional investigation doggedly pursued by chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has revealed key evidence that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder LIED UNDER OATH about what he knew and when he knew it, in the criminal "Fast & Furious" gun-walking operation. Why is Speaker of the House John Boehner dithering around about issuing a Contempt of Congress citation? Holder's crimes, my friends, warrant INDICTMENT, IMPEACHMENT – AND VERY LIKELY PRISON TIME.
It is NOT just these new revelations about the wiretaps. The lies of the cover-up just keep piling up, AND BOEHNER NEEDS TO ACT.
Review the damning evidence: Congressional investigators and the American people have learned over the last several months that despite testimony under oath to the contrary, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was immediatelyinformed of the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on Dec. 15, 2010 – the SAME day the murder happened.
Moreover, Holder's chain of command knew and reported at once that Operation Fast & Furious weapons had been used in Terry's killing. This directly contradicts Holder's statements before Congress when he testified that he was informed of Agent Terry's murder only "a few weeks" before the hearing. My friends, we have the proof that Holder, Obama's right-hand man, intentionally LIED UNDER OATH. This is perjury, a high crime and misdemeanor under the U.S. Constitution – an impeachable offense. Tell Speaker Boehner and the Congress TO ACT TODAY!
An email from one official (whose name was redacted from documents now in evidence) to the now-former Arizona U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke read: "On December 14, 2010, a BORTAC agent working in the Nogales, AZ AOR was shot. The agent was conducting Border Patrol operations 18 miles north of the international boundary when he encountered [redacted word] unidentified subjects. Shots were exchanged resulting in the agent being shot. At this time, the agent is being transported to an area where he can be air lifted to an emergency medical center."
This e-mail was sent at 2:31 a.m. on the very same day that Terry was shot. Then one hour later, a follow-up e-mail read: "Our agent has passed away." Then, later that morning, Burke forwarded those e-mails to Holder's own Deputy Chief of Staff, Monty Wilkinson, adding that the incident was "not good" because it happened "18 miles w/in" the border.
And later that same day, Burke sent a follow-up e-mail to Wilkinson saying, "The guns found in the desert near the murder(ed) BP officer connect back to the investigation we were going to talk about – they were AK-47s purchased at a Phoenix gun store."
Wilkinson responded to Burke shortly thereafter saying, "I've alerted the AG [Holder], the acting DAG, Lisa, etc."
Yet "the AG" [Holder] bold-faced lied to Congress, denying that he "had ever heard" of the Fast & Furious Operation until Congress inquired about it! This despite Holder receiving regular briefings on it, as we now know from subpoenaed evidence.
Wilkinson followed Holder's lead in a classic Chicago-style cover-up claiming "I don't recall," and pleading the Fifth during Congressional testimony. But Issa has the "smoking gun" proof of how Holder and his underlings knowingly allowed the botched gun-running operation to continue putting high-powered assault weapons into the hands of Mexican warlords, even as U.S. federal agents were being killed with them. ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was gunned down February 15, 2011 – a full two months after Agent Terry. Had Holder taken responsibility and pulled the plug on this scandal, made our agencies aware of the threat, perhaps Jaime Zapata would be alive today. But it seems DOJ was in too deep, dancing with coyotes.
In a stunning display of ruthless arrogance, as these facts became public in contradiction to his perjured testimony, Eric Holder then simply refused to be sworn under oath when he next testified before Congress! However, under law, his testimony is "sworn" anyway, and opens him to still more perjury charges for lying. Later, Holder also admitted he willfully attempted to mislead Congress, but blamed the entire Fast & Furious debacle on racist prejudice against him and his boss, Obama – and refused to take any personal responsibility or admit any wrong-doing. But the evidence just keeps piling up against him and Obama.
The Fast & Furious plot of sleazy dealings is so thick, you could drown in it. According to Issa, "One confidential witness told Congress that he overheard Scot Thomasson, chief ATF spokesman, say early on in the Congressional inquiry into Fast & Furious: 'We need to get whatever dirt we can on these guys [the whistleblowers] and take them down,'" a 17-page briefing paper accompanying the Contempt of Congress complaint says. "The actions of the Department of Justice towards the whistleblowers over the next year indicate that these words were part of a concerted effort at retaliation."
In proceedings filed in a Chicago federal court, defendant Vicente Jesus Zambada-Niebla claimed that the Department of Justice struck a deal with leaders of the Sinaloa drug cartel, in which Fast & Furious guns were exchanged for providing information and assistance against other drug and crime cartel organizations. Zambada-Niebla said the Sinaloa's own Mexico-based attorney brokered the deal with U.S. government officials. The son of one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in Mexico, as soon as his attorney filed defense motions alluding to these matters, Eric Holder's Department of Justice immediately filed a motion to invoke the "Classified Information Procedures Act" – effectively silencing all further court proceedings.
And in the new book Fast and Furious by investigative reporter Katie Pavlich, when Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano testified before Congress about the Operation, she perjured herself on at least two occasions. Twice she was asked if she had discussed Fast & Furious with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and twice she answered no. Pavlich says that there were also five emails that clearly indicate that Napolitano and Holder discussed the botched operation program within two days after the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
The only question remaining is how long do the families of Agent Brian Terry and Agent Jaime Zapata have to wait for justice? Congress has all the evidence it needs to IMPEACH ERIC HOLDER for giving false testimony to Congress. Boehner and the Establishment politicians need to step aside and let justice be done. This man, Eric Holder, MUST be removed from the Department of Justice, indicted and made to stand trial for his crimes. Literally thousandsof innocent dead in Mexico, hundreds along our frontier and in U.S. territory, and our own federal agents have been murdered with Eric Holder's guns, and DEMAND JUSTICE!
Holder and his aides have been committing perjury, obstruction of justice and abuse of power in testimony before Congress REPEATEDLY, SERIALLY, SEQUENTIALLY, CONSPIRATORIALLY – seeking to evade accountability for their Fast & Furious felonies. These are high crimes and misdemeanors. Some are pleading the Fifth Amendment; some like Holder are lying and stonewalling as they continue to evade justice! Attorney General Eric Holder is immediately responsible the commission of these crimes, and MUST be impeached.
Eric Holder is a shameless political fixer and ruthless Beltway operative, well-schooled in the Chicago Way. He kicked his national profile up during the Clinton administration by helping to pardon notorious tax cheat Marc Rich and to gain clemency for the convicted Puerto Rican terrorists of FALN. Under his direction the U.S. Department of Justice has gone rogue, violating the rule of law and America's fundamental principle of equal justice.
Holder has refused to prosecute members of the New Black Panthers for blatant voter intimidation perpetrated during the 2008 election, and reportedly will not pursue any cases in which the perpetrators are black and the victims white. States like Arizona and Alabama are being sued by DOJ for simply attempting to enforce federal immigration laws. Holder is actively opposing state efforts to reduce fraud and vote-stealing at the ballot box by requiring voter identification cards.
Congressional investigators say Holder clearly knew about Fast & Furious and wanted to use the excuse of increased violence on the border and weapons-smuggling into Mexico to justify intensified U.S. domestic gun-control. The Obama Administration is fighting ferociously to prevent more internal Justice documents from reaching Congress, because once his full involvement is uncovered, the Obama presidency will be jeopardized. Speaker Boehner and the Congress MUST ACT!
WHY IS BOEHNER STALLING? JUST LIKE DURING THE WATERGATE YEARS – PRESSURE IN THE WHITE HOUSE IS MOUNTING AS NEW EVIDENCE CONTINUES TO UNVEIL A MASSIVE ADMINISTRATION COVER UP. WILL OBAMA GO OUT LIKE NIXON? IS OPERATION FAST & FURIOUS OBAMA'S WATERGATE?
For those who remember history, it was not the actual break-in at the Watergate hotel that brought down Richard Nixon, but rather the Administration's cover up of the crime that forced the embattled President out of office. And if you recall correctly, the fall of the Administration began in large part with the criminal implication of Richard Nixon's Attorney General.
We have been reporting for months the obvious truth that Operation Fast & Furious not only constituted a criminal enterprise on behalf of the Obama Department of Justice, but also that Attorney General Eric Holder was actively working to cover up the Administration's crimes.
To get the truth – the full hard and awful truth – of the Obama Administration's involvement not only in Operation Fast & Furious, but also in the multitude of additional criminalscandals surrounding Barack Obama and his entire Executive Branch, Eric HolderCANNOT be allowed to stay in office with "deals" or underlings taking the rap for him; heCANNOT simply be allowed to resign. No, ERIC HOLDER MUST BE INDICTED and PROSECUTED so that all the damning details of all the Obama wrongdoing of the murderous Fast & Furious scandal can see the light of day at trial.
John Mitchell, Attorney General under President Richard Nixon, was convicted of conspiracy, perjury, and obstruction of justice and sentenced to two and half to eight years of federal prison as a result of his participation in planning the notorious Watergate break-in, and the crimes of the Nixon administration's attempted cover up.
With Eric Holder's wrongdoing, in an excellent display of cross examination skills and tenacity, a handful of House Republicans have finally been able to illicit enough testimony to indict Eric Holder for the same crimes John Mitchell committed. And we all know where that led.
BUT BOEHNER AND THE ESTABLISHMENT MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO HALT ISSA'S ACTIONS! INSIST THAT CONGRESS ACT!
Oh, where are the Woodward and Bernstein "investigative" journalists relentlessly pursuing and reporting the truth when you need them? Never mind, they only investigate Republicans. In the meantime, you have Life & Liberty PAC.
LLPAC was the very first organization to press investigation of Holder and Obama, and regularly report to you, the American public, the mind-boggling corruption and lawlessness of the DOJ and its White House master – including racialist prosecution policies, gunwalking, money laundering and the murderous results of Eric Holder's Fast & Furious anti-Second Amendment operations.
We were the first to inform you of Eric Holder's long time private connections with gunrunners. Last summer, our staff members even flew to Washington at their own expense to present little-known, critical information to Members of Congress, and demand that there be full Congressional investigations of Eric Holder's Gunwalker/Fast & Furious criminal activities.
Finally, a few good men in Congress are listening – but they and weneed YOUR support if they are to prevail, and not be derailed by the powerful political establishment that FEARS the truth!
Congress needs the political resolve that only you can deliver. We MUST demand the rest of Congress get on board with our champions on Chairman Issa's House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and indict Eric Holder.
Speaker Boehner needs to man up, let Rep. Issa issue his Contempt of Congress citation, and get the impeachment ball rolling!
Your faxes and your contributions can and do make the difference. Without them, LLPAC cannot continue to investigate and report on the treacherous crimes happening in our nation's capital. We cannot continue to inform and mobilize public opinion and activism. And YOUR FAXES both "speak loudly" AND are a "big stick" that compel Congress to DO THE RIGHT THING.
Sources tell us that Fast & Furious isn't the only thing Eric Holder is hiding. In fact, our sources indicate that Eric Holder is literally preventing disclosure of a barrage of damaging evidence and information regarding Barack Obama's dirty dealings in the infamous Chicago Way.
ERIC HOLDER MAY BE THE ONLY THING STANDING BETWEEN IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS FOR OTHER DEPARTMENT SECRETARIES LIKE NAPOLITANO, AND EVEN FOR BARACK OBAMA HIMSELF…
If we force the full indictment of Eric Holder, the dam of protection around Obama, his shadowy past and shady dealings, all the cover ups, might finally, finally begin to crumble. Things may very well end as they did for the Nixon administration – with the removal of a man unfit to occupy the Oval Office.
HELP US SAVE AMERICA! REP. ISSA HAS DONE GREAT WORK – NOW BOEHNER AND THE CONGRESSIONAL ESTABLISHMENT MUST ACT, TODAY!
Thank you. I know I can count on you to defend LIFE AND LIBERTY!
Mary Lewis, Chair
