Attorney General Eric Holder faced a gauntlet of tough questions from Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee as part of the ongoing probe into the Fast and Furious operation that allowed guns to walk into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and resulted in hundreds of murders in Mexico plus the killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
“There are over 1,500 guns still out there, we won’t find those unless they’re at a crime scene.”
Committee Democrats largely defended Holder and accused the Republicans of playing election year with a tragic story. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) is a member of the committee. He rips Democrats for trying to cover for the attorney general when Holder either knew about the program or was derelict in not knowing about it.
“We need to do our jobs so we need to see who’s implicated and make sure we have all the facts so we can make sure this never happens again”
Gosar tells us what may included in the thousands of documents that Holder is refusing to turn over to Congress, why this botched operation endangers the safety of his constituents and where the investigation goes from here.
