    Some of you may not remember Clinton's Pardon of an obviously guilty <a href="http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,99302,00.html">Marc Rich</a> but it was a big deal and another payback to a donor by Bill Clinton.

    An investigation into the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” gunrunning probe, which allowed hundreds of weapons to be illegally “walked” into Mexico, is not the first time Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s truthfulness has been challenged by members of Congress.

    In 2001, the House Government Reform Committee questioned the accuracy of Mr. Holder’s depiction of what he did as deputy attorney general in the last-minute pardon by President Clinton of fugitive financier Marc Rich, whose former wife, Denise Rich, had donated $1.3 million to Democrats.

    Two years earlier, Mr. Holder came under fire for refusing to tell a Senate committee whether the Justice Department had recommended against Mr. Clinton’s offer of clemency to 16 Puerto Rican nationalists a month after then-Attorney General Janet Reno said their release posed a national security threat.

    So let me get this straight.

    We have a tax cheat running the Treasury and a guy guilty of perjury running the DOJ?

    You can't make this shit up.

    Issa won't let go, Holder clearly lied or mislead congress. The problem is that a federal officer was killed by one of the weapons the regime allowed to be supplied to a mexican cartel.

    Holder needs to resign and the Obama regime needs to find a new Attorney General unless it likes the reputation for deceit and/or imcompetence. The picture of Holder that is emerging is someone who doesn't read much of the traffic sent to him regarding DOJ operations which amounts to gross negligence. Holder has a pattern of not staying informed which amounts to incompetence.

    He either deceived congress or is incompetent. Which is it?

    I suspect both.

    sounds like a flash back to the Bush regime
  7. And to the regime prior to that and so on and so on.

    But I guess the "next election" will put an end to all of it right?
