Will Attorney General Eric Holder’s perjury cost him his job?

By Doug Book, staff writer

On Monday evening it was learned that US Attorney General Eric Holder lied to a congressional committee while testifying about his knowledge of the Obama Regime’s Operation Fast and Furious “Gunwalking” scandal.
Memos from Department of Justice operatives directed to Holder himself leave no doubt that the DOJ was receiving constant updates on the Operation as early as mid 2010.
During his May 3rd testimony before the Grassley/Issa Congressional Committee, Holder was asked when he had first learned of Operation Fats and Furious. “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Fruious for the first time over the last few weeks,” Holder responded.

But that was a lie. Documents detailing the existence and progress of Fast and Furious were directed to Holder by Michael F. Walther, the head of the National Drug Intelligence Center and by his own Assistant AG, Lanny Breuer in 2010.

A heavily redacted July 5th, 2010 memo from Walther to Holder details the work of the Phoenix Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) working in conjunction with the ATF on Operation Fast and Furious. And this was a “weekly report”!

And a November 2010 memorandum from assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer to Holder further updates Fast and Furious, even reporting current indictments and the number of firearms already known to have “walked” across the Mexican border.

So it is an undeniable fact that Eric Holder has committed perjury. And no excuse that the Operation had simply slipped his mind is likely to work, except of course with the always supportive and understanding mainstream media.

Obviously we know the consequences for a Republican Attorney General, had he lied so blatantly and deliberately before a congressional committee. But will Holder lose his job over his perjured testimony?

Perhaps a more pertinent question: will any mainstream media sources other than FOX News and Sharyl Attkisson of CBS even carry the story?

Yet with or without “old media” participation, the drip, drip, drip of Fast and Furious leaks threatens to eventually drown the Obama White House. The tragedy is that hundreds now dead, including at least two American law enforcement agents, will not be around to see it thanks to the Regime’s Gunwalking operation

  1. Ah ! "The smell of napalm in the morning bursting over the DOJ liar Mr. Eric H. ! Couldn't happen to a nicer guy….except Obama of course.

    1. Of course, Holder is now claiming that the committee "misunderstood" his answer!

      "When did you first learn of Fast and Furious?" Yeah…I can see how that might be pretty damned confusing!

      1. Yo ! Puppy! You've GOT to be kidding me!! Holder is seriously claiming that his answer was misunderstood? I saw and heard the jerks words as well as the questions asked of him. Nothing vague about Holder answering "…but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last two weeks".
        If I had a nickel for every time I've heard Obama, Congress, and now Holder, claim that they have been misunderstood; I'd have enough money to fly to Washington D.C. for some SERIOUS ass-kicking session!

  2. Barb, you must be a sweet and kind person; a gentle soul, to term what Eric Holder has single-handedly done to destroy the credibility of America's "Top-Cop" shop, the DOJ .
    "Fibbing" is for children and flatterers, my friend. Epic proportions of cover-ups, perjury, untimely amnesia of pertinent facts, and involvement in illegal activities while holding a Federal office are only SOME of the crimes attributed to this man !
    What Eric Holder has accomplished is to let all Americans know that the "untouchable" ones can LIE and defraud while under oath; and do so with impunity. Holder fears no consequences because he enforces the rules that, were they applied to us mere mortals, would find us behind bars for several lifetimes !.

  3. THE FAST AND FURIOUS SITUATION IS MORE THAN A STORY, IT INCLUDES MOST SERIOUS
    INFORMATION ON HOW HOLDER HAS LIED UNDER OATH TO CONGRESS AND AMERICANS.

    THIS MOST REGRETTABLE SITUATION CANNOT BE COVERED UP AS NOW THE ADMINISTRATION
    AND HOLDER ARE ATTEMPTING TO DO.

    AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW THE TRUTH ! THEREFORE, TRULY SEEK ALL AVAILABLE DATA ON
    HOW FAST AND FURIOUS STARTED AND WHO WAS INVOLVED AT THAT PERIOD. EDWARD

  4. THE AUDACIOUS THUGS
    You might remember this. It was only 2 years ago.
    It was April 2009 that Obama at his visit to Mexico started an attack on the Second Amendment with, as usual a lie, claiming that 90% of the arms of the Mexican murdering drug gangs came from the US. The usual leftist Democrats took up the lead and used this untrue data as a new basis to blame the legal gun dealers, the NRA and the Second Amendment in numerous outcries. It appears that because this made-up 90% figure was in danger of exposure as yet another Obama falsehood, a program such as Fast and Furious appeared to be a good way to retroactively back up Obama’s credibility and validate the need for more federal gun control.
    As cover-up and concealment of Obama's direct responsibility for that “Fundamental Change" against the liberty and unity of the country becomes increasingly tenuous we must be wary of “audacious” attempts to thwart exposure and removal if not him, his power. It is not unreasonable to expect an attempt to fan the flames of upheaval and insurrection giving rise to military marshal law under Presidential emergency powers including the ability to delay or cancel the election as in other one time election democracies that the Marxists love so well. Our major defense fortunately is the fact that a goodly number of the aware population in the U.S. is armed, something pointed out by Victoria Jackson in her “There's a Communist in the White House" fact filled song.

    THE FUTURE OF FAST AND FURIOUS
    You can be sure that stonewalling “Fast and Furious” will likely succeed. Obama is under no legal obligation to appoint a special prosecutor and won’t. W, who did appoint a special prosecutor in the Valerie Plame nonsense, did so not because of the law requirement, which expired, but out of simple integrity that Obama and other “ends justify the means” types despise and exploit.
