Matthew Burke over at Tea Party News Network reports on new information on Valerie Jarrett which would get a whole lot of Republicans impeached, brought up on charges and tossed in the brink.. Except that the story is about Democrats. So no biggie, says the mainstream media (yawn):
Judicial Watch the government watchdog group has obtained new evidence through the Freedom of Information Act which reveals what many people believe happens on a regular basis with this Obama Admin: That Valerie Jarret has been pulling the strings when it comes to the Justice Department and all the lies told to Congress in the illegal Fast and Furious gun-running scandal
In case you’ve been under a rock, or only watching Network News, that’s the one where the Obama Admin was funneling American-made weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. They got caught after hundreds of murders showed to have been committed with these weapons and apparently Eric Holder, Barack Obama have been stonewalling ever since on “Fast & Furious” with Valerie Jarret managing the whole fiasco:
The scheme, which was intended to sucker Americans into giving up more of their Second Amendment Rights, resulted in the death of U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry, as well as reportedly hundreds of Mexican citizens.Previously, the secretive regime refused to turn over the requested Fast and Furious records, even after Judicial Watch filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Only after Judicial Watch sued the Obama Regime did they turn over this latest information which ties Jarrett to the subsequent lies and cover-up following the deadly scandal. A federal court ordered the Obama Department of Justice to turn over the records over the objection of the bureaucracy.
Buried deep in the 1,000-plus pages of records secured by Judicial Watch was the fact that Jarrett, who many have said is as close to Obama as no other person on the planet, was brought into the fray to manage Holder’s lies about the gun-running operation.
From the Judicial Watch report:
The files received by JW include three electronic mails between Holder and Jarrett and one from former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke to Jarrett. The e-mails with Holder are all from October 4, 2011, a significant date because, on the evening of October 3rd, Sheryl Attkisson (then at CBS news) released documents showing that Holder had been sent a briefing paper on Operation Fast and Furious on June 5, 2010. The paper was from the director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, Michael Walther.
This directly contradicted Holder’s May 3, 2011 testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, during which he stated that he, “probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” The October 4, 2011 date may also be significant because it came shortly after the August 30, 2011 resignation of U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke and reassignment of acting ATF director Kenneth Melson to the position of “senior forensics advisor” at DOJ.
In June of 2012, race-baiting Eric Holder became the first sitting U.S. Attorney General to be held in contempt of Congress for his Fast and Furious lies, including when he testified that he denied knowledge of the operation. The vote was 255-67, with 17 Democrats crossing over to condemn Holder’s obvious lies.
Obama Asks Judge To Hide Emails To Attorney General Holder’s Wife
President Barack Obama is asking a judge to keep secret the contents of emails apparently sent between Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife.
The request is part of Obama’s three-year stonewall against Judicial Watch’s inquiry into the Operation Fast and Furious” scandal, during which the Department of Justice watched while military-style weapons were bought in the United States and smuggled to Mexican drug gangs. In the past, members of the Obama administration have used fake email accounts to hide conversations from public view.??
