Friday Night Document Dump Shows Holder Knew About Fast and Furious Connection to Brian Terry Murder Day After Border Agent Died

That’s it, he’s toast. He lied under oath, and Congressional Republicans can prove it, now.  A series of emails from the latest DOJ Friday night document drop shows that Holder was informed of the Dec15, 2010 shooting of border patrol agent, Brian Terry, before he was even dead. And he was informed that the weapons used to kill him were from Operation Fast and Furious on that same day.

Read Matthew Boyle’s entire report at The Daily Caller:

These new emails are written evidence that Holder was aware of Fast and Furious about five months before he testified in Congress that he had only learned of the gunwalking program a “few weeks” before a May 3, 2011, House Judiciary Committee appearance.

Holder has since walked back that “few weeks” comment, amending it to more of a “couple months.”

“I did say a ‘few weeks,’” Holder said during a November 8 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, responding to a question from its chairman Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy. “I probably could’ve said ‘a couple of months.’ I didn’t think the term I said, ‘few weeks,’ was inaccurate based on what happened.”

There have also been a series of documents containing the intimate details of Fast and Furious that were sent to Holder all throughout 2010 from several of his senior aides. Holder claims he did not read his memos.

Holder will be appearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform next Thursday, Feb. 2. Though Holder has already testified before Congress three times about matters relating to Fast and Furious — twice before the House Judiciary Committee and once before the Senate Judiciary Committee — this is the first time the House oversight committee will have an opportunity to question Holder himself.

That Feb 2 hearing will be interesting, to say the least.

The Associated Press reports an outbreak of mass amnesia at the Justice Department!

In a letter to the committee, the Justice Department said that Wilkinson DOES NOT RECALL a follow-up call with Burke and that Wilkinson DOES NOT RECALL discussing this aspect of the matter with the attorney general. According to the letter, the department has been advised that Burke HAS NO RECOLLECTION of discussing this aspect of the matter with Wilkinson. (Emphases supplied, MBV.)

It should be noted that numerous felonies were committed by Holder and Co’s implementation of Fast and Furious:

These felonies include violations of the Arms Export Control Act, violations of the Kingpin Act, possible RICO violations, violations of the Whistleblower Protection Act, felonies related to the cover-up of Brian Terry’s death at the hands of an FBI criminal informant, including the hiding of the informant’s SKS rifle, and other crimes. Eric Holder’s apparent perjury in front of Congress about when he know of Operation Fast and Furious is the least of the administration’s problems.


Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, a member of the  Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is pushing a resolution of “no confidence” in Holder’s management of the Justice Department.

 That resolution, H. Res. 490, provides a course of action for the momentum generated by that hearing.

H. Res. 490 finds that, as a result of “Holder’s failure to properly control, monitor, or establish Operation Fast and Furious, it is likely Mexican nationals were killed or wounded by weapons sold through this scheme” — and that the victims of Holder’s incompetence included U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

It goes on to resolve that the House has “lost confidence” in Holder, which is, basically, a call for him to resign.

Clearly, the Justice Department believes it can stonewall Issa’s inquiry and bull its way through questions concerning its criminal malfeasance. Adoption of the Gosar resolution would make it much, much more difficult to do so.

Issa says Holder should apologize to Mexico: ‘Justice has blood on their hands’.

According to Matthew Boyle, a total of 103 members of the House have either called for Holder’s resignation or firing, or expressed “no confidence” in Holder via a formal House Resolution, or both.

That number should increase, next week.

  1. “Can they remember their way to the rest room?” , Hardly necessary. Obama’s entire DOJ is basically one big sewer pit.


  2. In any other administration, he’d be done.

    He’s still useful to President Downgrade where he is as he can prevent or kill as many vote fraud cases as it takes to ensure his re-election.

    Besides, like many Democrats in government, he already has the survival instincts of a cockroach. He isn’t leaving the bunker until Barry tosses him under that very crowded bus.


  3. Let me see the raised hands of all who really, truly think Holder will be held accountable for anything other than a POSSIBLE perjury accusation from the committee?

    I didn’t think so.

    Issa is a Beltway blob who has enjoyed his time in the spotlight, but isn’t about to open a can of worms that might lead to the Oval Office in an election year.

    Why, the cries of RAAACIIIIST!!!! and “FOUL PLAY!!!” would fill the first seven pages daily of nearly every newspaper in the nation for every month leading up to the elections, not to mention the first 18 minutes of every newscast spewing the same for the same time period. And it would probably be nearly the same on Fox, too.

    Do you really believe this Chicago gang of thugs will allow Mr. “My People” to take that fall when he could be the difference between an election loss and a stolen election?
