John Boehner Demands Answers From Obama And Eric Holder On The Fast And Furious Scandal

Eric Holder

U.S. President Barack Obama, his Attorney General, Eric Holder, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and its offshoot the FBI, continue to criminally stonewall Congress and provide knowingly false information in the "Fast and Furious" gun trafficking debacle.

The disgraceful "Fast and Furious" scandal involves Eric Holder illegally trafficking guns to the drug cartels in Mexico and the weapons being used to murder innocent Mexican civilians and two U.S. Border Patrol agents, due to the Attorney General's willful criminal negligence and violations of domestic and international law.

Weapons issued by Obama's Department Of Justice, bought with U.S. taxpayer money, in the home of a Mexican drug cartel assassin, who among others, used the guns to kill many innocent people, including two Americans

The FBI has been helping its parent agency the DOJ to cover up pertinent evidence, as alleged in the book "Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up." Congressional House Speaker, John Boehner, sent a letter to the Obama Administration yesterday, via the DOJ demanding answers. Boehner further stated he is "troubled" by the cover-up and stonewalling of Congress in the matter.

Apart of the letter reads, "The American people deserve to know how such a fundamentally flawed operation could have continued for so long and have a full accounting of who knew of and approved an operation that placed weapons in the hands of drug cartels. If necessary, the House will act to fulfill our constitutional obligations in the coming week...It is our hope that, with your cooperation, this sad chapter in the history of American law enforcement can be put behind us."
