The man who assured Senator Charles Grassley that no “gunwalking” had taken place during Operation Fast and Furious has just resigned from the Department of Justice. “The allegation…that ATF ‘sanctioned’ or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to a straw purchaser who then transported them to Mexico—is false,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich in his now infamous February 4th, 2011 letter to congress. Nine months later the DOJ retracted that letter, advising congress it contained “inaccuracies.”
It was just 48 hours after news that a Contempt of Congress charge against Attorney General Eric Holder would be put to a House vote that Weich decided to end his Department of Justice career. Confirmed by a 2009 Senate vote to his post in the Office of Legislative Affairs, Weich is the first of Barack Obama’s Main Justice, political appointees to resign as a probable result of Fast and Furious involvement.
But the Department’s Fast and Furious straw boss and cover-up technician is still at large. Last week, Eric Holder asked to meet with Congressman Darrell Issa prior to Wednesday’s Contempt vote in the House. Still claiming that Weich’s denials of ATF misdeeds were the result of misinformation foisted on the Department by Phoenix, US Attorney Dennis Burke, Holder advised Issa that he is “…prepared to provide documents that, while outside the scope of the [House] Committee’s interest in the inappropriate tactics used in Fast and Furious, are responsive to how the Department’s understanding of the facts regarding the matter evolved throughout 2011…”
Of course like everything else the Attorney General has assured congress of over the past two decades, it was a lie.
Yesterday, Barack Obama claimed executive privilege permitted him to seal every Fast and Furious document previously subpoenaed by the Issa Committee. It was an act which reeked of the desperation from which his Royal Highness and assorted Regime capos are presently suffering. It also means that, for the moment, Eric Holder has been once again spared the just deserts of his decades of criminal exploits.
As a matter of fact it’s remarkable how often the Attorney General has been able to duck responsibility for his many felonies. Holder claimed before a congressional committee that it was someone else who REALLY arranged for the pardons of FALN terrorists and international thug Mark Rich during the final days of the Clinton presidency. And as for the despicable cover-up of Kenneth Trentadue’s murder at the hands of the FBI, the exposure of which could have blown the lid off of the federal government’s role in the Oklahoma City bombing? Well that never really happened at all, handwritten meeting notes from Eric Holder’s office notwithstanding.
Eric Holder is a twenty year cancer on the Republic, his calculated disregard for law and justice evidence of a wholesale contempt for the people of the United States and abiding belief in his own divine privilege. God willing, in Darrell Issa he has finally met a man determined enough to put him away.
