Not So Fast: Obama Administration Waits Until Election Eve To Dump Over 64,000 Pages In Fast and Furious Operation

holdereric260px-capitol_building_full_viewThe Justice Department has previously been held in contempt by Congress and hit with increasingly tough court orders from a federal judge over its obstruction of efforts to secure evidence in the notorious Fast and Furious operation. Many have accused Attorney General Eric Holder of acting blatantly political in withholding documents to protect Democrats from backlash before the elections. As if to prove that view, the Justice Department waited until late on election eve to finally dump more than 64,000 pages of documents congressional lawmakers have been seeking for years. The timing was almost taunting in its impact. Guaranteeing that the content could not be viewed before people voted, the Obama Administration’s long obstruction resulted in this troubling image of a politically timed release. The Administration previously admitted that it would not discuss its plans for unilateral immigration action until after voters had gone home from the polls.

The election eve dump to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee involved 64,280 pages withheld for years by the Obama Administration.

The Justice Department has made a series of statements about the operation that proved false and Holder has been personally accused of false statements.

The document dump contains heavily redacted copies which will likely continue the fight over the right of the oversight committee to review the evidence in the operation.

  1. Elaine – who could possibly want you gone for good? Annie would lose half her moral support.

  2. Elaine, you have more substance in your little finger than someone has in hs entire being.

    And Paul, I see you continue to play your games. It doesn’t reflect well on you.

  3. Nick – as any high school teacher can tell you women are bigger bullies then men. However, they are more emotional in their approach. They include or disclude people from their group. You are either in or out. That is why it is important for them to show support for the people in their ‘in’ group. You will see little messages telling them it is a great post, etc. Telling them how great it is to have them as part of the team. However, if they turn, woe to the Republic. I get a kick out of watching their sophomoric antics as they virtually hi-five each other. Or call in support from another blog when things have gone wrong. And in this case, someone emailed JT for help.

  4. Like other people, I am allowed to post comments on this blog. I’m not “coming over” from anywhere–just sitting at home and reading and responding. It appears someone is disturbed that I’m not “gone for good” from the Turley blog. Maybe he should lodge a complaint with the blog host and ask him to bar me from commenting because he doesn’t like having me around.

  5. DBQ,
    Paul wasn’t speaking of sockpuppets, he was attempting to say I had something to hide, something from my real offline life. THAT was intrusive and creepy. If you have a problem with the deletion contact JT. I don’t know why you are attempting to shift Paul’s comments from what they were to sockpuppets. Perhaps you should mind your own business.

  6. Read the civility rules. If you don’t understand them ask JT to explain them to you. My private offline life is none of you business

    That is absolutely correct and as it should be…..and frankly ….no one should care about or intrude into anyone’s real life. However, exposing people’s various sock puppets which are meant to disrupt the dialogue and are meant to corrupt the blogs, exposing false on line identities and other fake online, NOT real life identities ,is not any where remotely in the neighborhood of intruding into anyone’s real life.

  7. Paul, JT has a good dose of that old timed paternalism. He has a tough time dealing w/ women, he can be manipulated by them. We all have our weaknesses.

  8. Read the civility rules. If you don’t understand them ask JT to explain them to you. My private offline life is none of you business.

  9. The book Saboteurs is a fascinating read. It was luck and good investigation that arrested the German saboteurs dropped odd to wreak havoc. They really weren’t very bright, or that committed really. But, FDR dealt w/ them SWIFTLY. Saboteurs must be dealt w/ forcefully and swiftly.

    1. Nick – the first one was caught by accident. The rest were either careless or narced on. I give FDR no credit in this. He was part of their execution, not of their capture.
      The British spies are more interesting. They had a choice, turn or die. Most turned and sent false info back to Germany. They were a big help in confirming Patton’s phantom army.
      Pick up Washington’s Six Spies. It is about the Culpepper Ring which discovered that Major Andre was getting info from a high ranking American officer at West Point.

  10. Squeeky, Beneath all the liberal, down w/ the struggle veneer, is a lily white elitist core. Usually only upscale kidnap get the press. People like the lily white liberals here. The identify w/ that. My God, it could have been their daughter. But, a blue collar black girl gets kidnapped and miraculously found thanks to great police work and public help. Yawn for these hypocrites. Their ignoring that thread says it all.

  11. Paul, good grief, privacy is something we are assured here

    Privacy IRL (in real life) which is as it should be and which IMO (in my opinion) is highly valuable and for which I am thankful for. Privacy when responding to fake identities in a public forum with your own fake identity…..doesn’t count.

    1. Privacy as a sock puppet cannot ever be assured. Some people are very poor at creating sock puppets.

  12. JT! Could you please address the constitutionality of POTUS’ proclaimed future actions on amnesty?

  13. And, the Australian woman post is also interesting and civil. Always look who is NOT on a civil thread and it is easily deduced who is toxic here.
