Eric Holder got the news he was dreading.
Trey Gowdy finally got his hands on secret documents Obama’s Attorney General hoped would never see the light of day.
And they could finally reveal the truth about one of the worst scandals of the Obama administration.
Barack Obama recently made news when he claimed his administration was scandal free.
Critics quickly pointed out the Fast and Furious scandal from early in Obama’s first term.
The administration ran guns to Mexican drug cartels so the viscous killers and dope dealers could create chaos that they could later exploit to rationalize new gun control.
Disaster stuck when two border patrol agents were killed with weapons from this debacle.
When Congressional Republicans investigated the matter, former Attorney General Eric Holder stonewalled them.
He expended so much energy concealing the truth that he was eventually cited for contempt of Congress.
But now House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy has finally won a victory.
The Department of Justice has turned over the long-ago requested documents.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The Justice Department announced Wednesday it would hand over documents related to the Obama-era Fast and Furious gun scandal to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. ..
…The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in Wednesday a statement accompanying the announcement. “This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”
Amanda Gonzalez, Gowdy’s communications director, told The Daily Caller the Oversight Committee “seeks all relevant facts so we can learn from the mistakes made by the Justice Department.”
“We have a responsibility to uncover why they worked so hard to hide this information from the Committee, the family of Brian Terry, and the American people,” she added.”
Republicans had deemed these documents “critical” to the investigation and now there is a strong possibility that Congress will finally get to the bottom of this Obama administration disaster.
This dangerous program put 2,000 firearms in the hands of some of the most dangerous drug cartels in the world.
And the American people deserve a full accounting of the savagery that the rampage of death and destruction the Obama administration unleashed.
