ATF Gunwalker: Did Eric Holder Lie to Congress?

WASHINGTON – New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his statement to Congress.

On May 3, 2011, Holder told a Judiciary Committee hearing, “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.”

Yet internal Justice Department documents show that at least ten months before that hearing, Holder began receiving frequent memos discussing Fast and Furious.

    Bearing false witness is the only thing this administration has ever done since being in office. They were going to use their self made emergency of evil US guns being in mexico to introduce their gun control measures. Remember Hillary denouncing American firearms getting to Mexico? Well, yes, when the US Gov’t ships them by the semi truck, you do tend to have US firearms in Mexico.

    Let’s employ scientific method.

    The theory to be tested is “did The Attorney General of the United States lie to Congress”.

    This can be tested easily by answering two questions.

    1. Is the Attorney General of the United States a Lawyer?
    (A. yes)
    2. Was the Attorney General of the United States speaking?
    (A. Yes)

    Since both test questions can be answered in the affirmative, we can deduce scientifically that Yes, the Attorney General of the United States did in fact Lie to Congress. I believe that this simple test can be applied to any situation in which the holder of the office of Attorney General of the United States (whoever that might be) is speaking to Congress (wither house, any committee or subcommittee) on any topic, at any time.
