Fast and Furious and Executive Privilege
I haven’t read up enough on Fast and Furious, but I’ll post several links to people who have been on this story for a very long time.
Matthew Boyle has a great story on Eric Holder’s backtracking during Wednesday’s hearing.
Katie Pavlich, whose book on Fast and Furious I own but haven’t read (sorry Katie), has a statement from the family of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Terry was murdered by a gun sold to Mexican cartel members during Fast and Furious.
Michelle Malkin kept a running blog of the day’s events.
Breitbart’s Mary Chastain, who answered my questions on Fast and Furious during a late night Twitter session, has a whole archive on the scandal.
House Speaker John Boehner has released a statement, basically saying Attorney General Eric Holder hasn’t been willing to release all the requested documents in the case.
The best words, though, have to be from South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy.
Looks like the fun is just beginning. Next week, the House votes on the Contempt of Congress charges against Holder. Here we go.
