Andy McCarthy reviews Eric Holder's longstanding problems with memory and truth.
The country's in the very best of hands.
A Marc Rich tradition!
I denounce myself for obvious racism, misogyny, and counter-revolutionary thought.
The outcome on Operation Fast & Furious will likely depend on whether or not a Special Prosecutor gets appointed. Issa can only carry it so fart on his own. If there was ever a situation that called for one, this is it.
But the old Special Prosecutor law expired in 1999, so "Special Independent Counsels" like Pat Fitzgerald now get appointed per DOJ regulation, which makes it the Attorney General's call. Who watches the watchmen? Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Even for the Obama administration, Holder has proven brazenly corrupt.
From McCarthy's article: "Cowed by the prospect of opposing confirmation of the nation’s first African-American attorney general — as if there were anything wrong with rejecting a nominee of any heritage who had a record as checkered as Holder’s — the senators decided Holder’s troubling testimony was not worth pursuing."
Not surprising, inasmuch as--quoting someone--we are "essentially a nation of cowards" concerning matters of race.
Issa was on with Chris Wallace this morning.
Holder is being invited to go before Issa's committee to "clarify".
Issa won't stop until he has someone at DOJ tagged with a felony. So who takes the fall?
There's just enough MSM coverage that stonewalling may not work anymore.
OF&F was intended to facilitate the killing of a lot of Mexicans. The blowback only happened because the unexpected happened -- a dead US border agent.
