DOING THE FAST & FURIOUS SHUFFLE: Does Blame Shift to ATF Take Holder Off the Hook?
It’s one of those bizarre government protocols that leave us all scratching our collective head because the inherent conflict of interest is so obscene.
Attorney General Eric Holder is charged with contempt of Congress over Fast & Furious, but he remains unscathed because his own DOJ office won’t prosecute him.
In light of that, justified or not, Congress’ release this past week of a joint Fast & Furious report that focuses blame on ATF officials seems to have a lame duck feel.
Enter Larry Pratt, executive director of the Gun Owners of America (GOA), who refuses to let Holder off the hook.
“Those involved in running Fast and Furious for the federal government are guilty of intentionally committing mass murder,” challenges Pratt. “This far exceeds the criminality of Watergate. Documents leaked by whistle blowers make it clear that the purpose of the program was to get people killed so the President’s ability to promote gun control would be strengthened.
Hopefully, the Federal Court for the District of Columbia will demand that Eric Holder produce the documents demanded by the House. If he does not, he could spend the election in jail for contempt.”
For an informed and rather edgy interview, call Special Guests right now to schedule the bold leader of the GOA, Larry Pratt.
