This is actual news instead of the Playskool, Etch-A-Sketch, crayoned pablum the American Media Maggots are passing for information this week about James Comey this, James Comey that. From NewsBusters.org:
Nets Ignore Oversight Report Showing Holder Impeded Fast and Furious Investigation
by Nicholas Fondacaro
While the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent Wednesday focusing on a Senate hearing they were hoping would implicate President Trump in obstruction of justice, they ignored a House Oversight Committee report that showed President Obama’s administration did just that. “An absolutely blistering report tonight out saying the Obama administration in general and former Attorney General Eric Holder in particular repeatedly lied to the family of a slain Border Patrol officer about the weapons used in his death, and stonewalled efforts to get at the truth,” announced Fox News’ Bret Baier on Special Report.
“The [Justice] Department’s belated admission that those 64,000 pages were not privileged, puts the gold seal of authenticity on the House’s bipartisan vote to hold the attorney general in contempt,” testified Senator Chuck Grassley at a hearing of the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.
But wait. Wasn’t it Obama’s first Attorney General, Eric Holder, who was held in contempt of Congress — the first sitting Cabinet official ever to face a contempt citation from Congress — for his failure to turn over documents regarding Fast and Furious? Why yes, it was. It was a federal judge who later stayed the contempt motion.
According to the committee’s report, the evidence of the federal government’s knowledge of the botched program was damning. “Emails contained in the House Oversight Committee’s report shows top officials knew the ATF sent guns to Mexico even before Terry’s death,” LaJeunesse explain. There was even correspondence between high-ranking officials blowing off the danger they put people in.
Corruption anyone? Actual obstruction of justice anyone?
LaJuenesse also noted how “the report claims the administration tried to stop the investigation by discrediting whistleblower John Dodson.”
“I was lied about and disparaged, publicly attacked, ridiculed, libeled, I’ve been transferred 11 times, denied promotion, ostracized, barred from government workplaces, and banned from public buildings,” Dodson told the House panel.
In the meantime for the American Media Maggots, it’s Russia and Comey and Russia and impeachment and Russia and Flynn and Russia and notes and Russia and loyalty and Russia and Comey. Particularly today.
Another day dealing with fake news.
