Pinal County sheriff, Paul Babeu sat down with the AZ Republic, Tuesday, to talk about the disastrous federal sting operation known as “Fast and Furious”. He stated, among other things that Eric Holder needs to to resign, and reiterated his belief that this scandal is worse than Watergate.
You’ve called for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to resign or be fired. Is there enough evidence today to warrant that?
Eric Holder knew or should have known that Operation Fast and Furious was taking place. He received numerous memos on the subject in July of 2010, though he now claims not to remember. In May, Holder told Congress under oath that he had just learned of it. I believe, in addition to bearing responsibility for this operation, which alone should warrant his resignation, he is now actively engaged in concealing what happened.
You said, “This is a much larger scandal than Watergate.” Watergate brought down a presidency. Do you expect this to do the same?
If you knew that a foreign power had caused over 2,000 guns to arrive in the hands of America’s most dangerous criminals, what would you say? What if those weapons had been used to commit more than 200 murders? Now consider that the federal government did just that – and to an ally. Nobody died because of Watergate, and no treaties were violated. People on both sides of the border will be dealing with the deadly fallout for years to come. But before this is over, we’ll know exactly what Barack Obama knew – and when he knew it.
