The US Attorney General should be charging Obama and Eric Holder for the same crimes.
Mexican prosecutors have announced charges against seven individuals in connection with the decade-old “Fast and Furious” weapons trafficking scandal.
The botched operation took place during Obama’s first term, and involved agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowing criminals at the U.S. border to purchase firearms with the intention of tracking the weapons and ultimately reducing criminal cartel activity across and on the U.S. border.
The agency, however, lost track of most of the guns, including the two that were discovered at the scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder in 2010.
Mexican officials now say that gangs involved with drug trafficking and former government officials also participated in what became a weapons trafficking operation. The office of the country’s Attorney General announced trafficking charges Sunday against seven people including the nation’s former top police official, and infamous drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who is currently serving a life sentence in a U.S. prison.
Former Federal Police commander Luis Cardenas Palomino was also charged. He had previously been arrested in Mexico on charges of torture, and U.S. prosecutors have accused him of accepting millions of dollars in bribes from the Sinaloa cartel.
The Fast and Furious gunrunning operation killed hundreds, including U.S. Border Agents.
ATF agent John Dodson was told to allow guns into Mexico.
By the way, a high ranking cartel operative stated that the purpose of Fast and Furious wasn’t to track weapons, but to supply them.
Barky’s DOJ was ordered repeatedly to turn over documents related to this fucking disaster. Obama and the agency kept thumbing their noses at the law and the courts.
Both Obama and Holder lied about and covered up their involvement in this disaster. Discovered documents and memos prove that they lied. Both of them obstructed justice by stonewalling Congress, preventing witness testimonies, and threatening to fire anyone who refused to go along with the coverup.
When’s the prosecution?
