Will Republicans Let Eric Holder Get Away with Murder?

Doug Book,

When Eric Holder ordered Justice Department Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar to begin an investigation of possible wrongdoing in Operation Fast and Furious it was with just one purpose in mind—enable the Attorney General and other DOJ officials to refuse to answer questions or provide documentation concerning the “gunwalking” debacle because there is an “ongoing investigation.” It’s a neat little legal trick the Obama regime has pulled on more than one occasion.

But although Holder used this dodge of his own creation to keep congressional committee members at bay for nearly a year,it appears the OIG report is just about ready to make its long overdue appearance. For Holder and his DOJ minions have telegraphed the fact that they might already have,to put it discreetly,“been privy” to information contained in the document.

The timing would allow Holder to dazzle committee members with the honesty and efficiency of the DOJ,having dismissed three individuals who just happened to be mentioned by the Inspector General as bad eggs.

Does Holder hope that the message he is currently testing,that….
