Brilliant! Eric Holder now claiming DOJ emails that use the phrase Fast and Furious do not refer gun-walking Fast and Furious
Eric Holder did work for Bill Clinton. Do maybe Holder is having one of those “It all depends on what the meaning of the word is, is.” Today, during a during congressional testimony about that internal Justice Department emails that use the phrase “Fast and Furious,” Holder actually claimed that those e-mails did not refer to the controversial gun-walking operation Fast and Furious.
Under questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who read excerpts of the emails at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Justice Department oversight, Holder claimed that the phrase “Fast and Furious” did not refer to Fast and Furious but instead referred to another gun-walking operation known as “Wide Receiver.”
However, the emails refer to both programs — “Fast and Furious” and the “Tucson case,” from where Wide Receiver was launched — and reveal Justice Department officials discussing how to handle media scrutiny when both operations become public.
