Eric Holder Exposed



A Friday night document dump had some very damaging items with regard to AG Holder and the "Fast and Furious" scandal. This article is worth a read and here is an excerpt of what was exposed.
The email messages show the former top federal prosecutor in Arizona, Dennis Burke, notifying an aide to Holder via email on Dec. 15, 2010 that agent Brian Terry had been wounded and died. "Tragic," responds the aide, Monty Wilkinson. "I've alerted the AG, the acting Deputy Attorney General..."

Only a few minutes later, Wilkinson emailed again, saying, "Please provide any additional details as they become available to you."

Burke then delivered another piece of bad news: "The guns found in the desert near the murder [sic] ... officer connect back to the investigation we were going to talk about — they were AK-47s purchased at a Phoenix gun store."

Those emails were exchanged within 24 hours after Terry's murder.

In sworn testimony to Congress Holder has stated that neither he nor anyone in the Justice Department were aware of the facts involving the murder of Agent Terry. Holder further denied knowledge of Fast and Furious until early in 2011 when he was called to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

According to NPR, the new information is sure to 'stoke the fires' among Congressional Republicans who have insisted all along that Holder knew much more about Fast and Furious, and Agent Terry's murder, than he disclosed.

The fact that the White House must approve the release of DOJ documents to the media indicates two key developments in the cover up of the scandal: one, that protecting Holder from damaging information is no longer a top priority, and two, the Obama White House is aware that the investigation into Fast and Furious has reached a new level, threatening the very core of the Administration, including the President himself.

NPR has the documents/emails mentioned in their own report.
Justice officials sent the documents to Congress late Friday evening, only a few days before Attorney General Eric Holder is set to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The email messages show the former top federal prosecutor in Arizona, Dennis Burke, notifying an aide to Holder via email on Dec. 15, 2010 that agent Brian Terry had been wounded and died. "Tragic," responds the aide, Monty Wilkinson. "I've alerted the AG, the acting Deputy Attorney General..."


Looks like the Obama administration is sacrificing one of their lambs.
In my opinion, Holder and his crew should go to jail for a very, very long time over this "Fast and Furious" scandal.
