This is something. Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina goes off on the AG and the WH today
GOWDY: If Obama did not know about Fast and Furious then “what in the world is he exerting executive privilege for? Either he’s part of it or he’s not!
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) blasted U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his department in an impassioned speech during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee where lawmakers were discussing whether or not to charge the attorney general with contempt.
Gowdy — who raised his voice several times — argued the documents that have been made available indicate that senior level officials at the Department of Justice in Washington were aware about Fast and Furious before the death of Border Agent Brian Terry.
“Senior level DOJ officials were briefed, they discussed press conference opportunities, they discussed the unsealing of indictments , they traded emails about the status of the case, they approved wire tap applications and most significantly, Mr. Chairman, they actively discussed the tactic of gun-walking well in advance of special agent brian terry’s murder… and here’s the proof,” Gowdy said.
