ICYMI: Chairman Priebus: “The Fast and Furious Cover Up”

Excerpts from Red State
By Reince Priebus
February 2, 2012
“Eric Holder testifies before Congress today on his department’s outrageous Operation Fast and Furious scandal. Eager to provide political cover for Obama’s embattled Attorney General, House Democrats…released a report attempting to exonerate Holder and his political appointees for failing to do their jobs.
“Of course, their report says Holder’s innocent. The facts say he’s guilty. I say he must resign.
“This cynical ploy is just the latest effort by Democrats to cover up the truth. Slowly but surely, their web of misstatements, falsehoods, and shifting blame is coming unraveled, revealing a reckless and incompetent administration…
“It’s a disaster and tragedy that could have been prevented, and the Justice Department refuses to take responsibility…
“Democrats will do anything to avoid blame. The DOJ withheld information. The White House accused congressmen of ‘playing politics.’…The administration sealed the court documents connected to the murder of the border patrol agent…
“Obama still insisted in October that he has 'complete confidence in Attorney General Holder and how he handles his office.' That’s the biggest problem. Obama has 'complete confidence' in a scandal-ridden department…
“Americans…have lost their confidence in this administration, and I, along with many other Republicans, have repeatedly called for Holder’s resignation. It’s time he heed those calls.
“In his State of the Union address, President Obama said, ‘I am asking my Attorney General to create a special unit of federal prosecutors and leading state attorneys general to expand our investigations into the abusive lending and packaging of risky mortgages that led to the housing crisis.’
“A new agency run by Eric Holder? I wouldn’t get my hopes up on that one.”
