PICKET: Issa Files Civil Action Against Holder

PICKET: Issa Files Civil Action Against Holder

By Kerry Picket - The Washington TimesAugust 13, 2012, 12:53P

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, California Republican, filed a civil action on Monday in Federal District Court for the District of Columbia to force U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to release documents related to the now defunct Operation Fast and Furious Mr. Issa's committee ask for by subpoenaed on October 11, 2011.

According to a press statement on the Oversight Committee website:

Among other things, the House’s legal action seeks to obtain documents covered by the subpoena that will show why the Justice Department took ten months to retract a February 4, 2011 letter which contained false denials of the reckless investigative tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious. After months of stonewalling by the Attorney General and his staff, and minutes before the Oversight Committee convened a business meeting to consider a resolution holding the Attorney General in contempt, President Obama invoked an eleventh hour assertion of executive privilege over the documents. The House’s filing asks the federal court to rule that President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege was invalid and compel Attorney General Eric Holder to produce subpoenaed documents.

“President Obama exceeded his authority by asserting executive privilege over subpoenaed documents related to the Justice Department’s cover-up of Operation Fast and Furious,” said Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa.

Eric Holder 1995 "We must Brainwash People To Be Against Guns"

Video Eric Holder 1995 "We must Brainwash People To Be Against Guns"

Breitbart.com has uncovered video from 1995 of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder announcing a public campaign to "really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way."
Holder was addressing the Woman's National Democratic Club. In his remarks, broadcast by CSPAN 2, he explained that he intended to use anti-smoking campaigns as his model to "change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC" about guns.
"What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes."


If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Good Find, littleWing

Thanks for posting

That's laughable

LOL. Nothing will happen. This is another myth. Issa is posing like he's working for his pay. Watch and see. He's just talking. Holder is guilty on fast and furious and nothing happens. If that were you or me they would lock us up and throw away the key. Who are these people in government anyway? It's all one big happy club and them against us. Holder must be in cahoots with Issa as Holder's main goal in life is to "brainwash" the people. It's on u toob.

Keepin' it real.

I Know!

But it sounds good..Right!
