Trump administration to turn over documents related to Obama-era Operation Fast and Furious

The Justice Department said Wednesday it will turn over documents withheld by former Attorney General Eric Holder related to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal during the Obama administration.

The Justice Department entered into a conditional settlement agreement with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The settlement agreement was filed in federal court in Washington D.C., and ends six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce records requested by the committee.

“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Wednesday. “This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”

The Obama-era operation was a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) operation in which the federal government allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them as they were transported into Mexico. But the agency lost track of more than 1,400 of the 2,000 guns they allowed smugglers to buy.

    Eric Holder should be in prison.

    Holder and Lynch BOTH need to face a MILITARY TRIBUNAL for their CRIMES AGAINST WE, THE PEOPLE!

  • Maxx says:

    Anybody with a functioning brain that followed this story KNOWS this Obama-Holder scam was created in order to make it look like the US was illegally exporting fire-arms into Mexico in order to sway public opinion and promote more gun control. Holder was even held on contempt-of-Congress charges for refusing to testify under oath. Obama was the very person who once said “the only reason a person refuses to tell the truth is because one has something to hide”. That was the MO of the entire Obama administration. They should still be held accountable for those horrible 8 years of tyranny.
