House Republicans have filed a lawsuit in federal count in an attempt to force Eric Holder and his staff to comply with the Fast and Furious investigation:
A civil lawsuit filed Monday by House Republicans asks a federal court to enforce a congressional subpoena of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in his refusal to turn over documents sought in an investigation by a House committee into the failed Fast and Furious gunrunning operation.
Things would be much simpler if Obama and Holder would just fess up to the fact that they signed off on an operation to arm the Mexican drug cartels and the operation lead to the American government being accomplices in numerous murders. You would think the Obama administration would try to get this entire matter settled as soon as possible so resources could be used to build more weapons to kill Middle Easterners instead of running investigations into other government misdeeds.
Do you know what the saddest part about this story is? I wouldn’t be surprised if the courts ruled against the House Republicans. The House Republicans have a stake in making Holder comply with their investigation since it could cause the Democrats some headaches in November’s election. On the other hand the federal courts have no stake in the outcome of the investigation and the default behavior of state entities is to help one another coverup wrongdoings.
