Fast and Furious: The Holder Subpoena Goes Out
And it’s a BIG one.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has issued his much-anticipated subpoena to Attorney General Eric Holder regarding Operation Fast and Furious, the “gun walking” program that sent American guns across the border into the eager hands of Mexican drug cartels. Some thought the subpoena would go out yesterday, but apparently it took Issa a while to finish writing it. It’s the double-meat foot-long subpoena.

“Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged,” Issa stated. “The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It’s time we know the whole truth.”

To that end, Holder is required to produce virtually every communication anyone associated with the Justice Department or ATF ever sent to anyone regarding Operation Fast and Furious, or “any Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force firearms trafficking case based in Phoenix, Arizona.” The subpoena specifically names no less than 16 DOJ officials, including Holder, his deputy James Cole, Assistant Attorneys General Lanny Breuer and Ronald Weich, and Deputy Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Blanco, among other names familiar to students of the Fast and Furious scandal.

…It will be interesting to watch the Attorney General respond to this massive request for information. Office supply stores in the D.C. area should brace themselves for a run on black markers.

The sound of a bus rumbling to life beneath the White House may well be heard, and Eric Holder’s family should prepare for the possibility that he’ll be spending a lot more time with them.

    Personally, I prefer that Holder get long term incarceration with a tattooed lifer whom prefers former prosecutors.

    Lethal injection, not so much in this case. I’d like Holder to think about his misdeeds late at night for many years to come.

    Anyone else think treason’s not an unreasonable result here? Arming sworn enemies of this country who then murder American lawmen then covering it up seems to fit the bill.

    Treason? No, it’s not reasonable, either from a political or legal stand-point. There are other, less exacting, standards that apply to Holder & Co.

    Accessory to murder being one?
