WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING A OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE? Judge: Leaning Toward White House Privilege Claim AP | by By PETE YOST Posted: 05/15/2014 3:29 pm EDT Updated: 05/15/2014 4:59 pm EDT WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge said Thursday she is leaning toward allowing President Barack Obama's claim of Executive Privilege in Operation Fast and Furious, the failed law enforcement operation at the center of a congressional investigation and subpoena fight between the Justice Department and House Republicans. At a hearing, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson cautioned that she has not decided how she will rule in the case. But she said she regards the Executive Privilege claim as qualified. That view could result in some Justice Department records that House Republicans want remaining confidential, while others might be subject to public disclosure. Lawyers for the House and the White House argued the case before Jackson. She flayed both sides, chiding the lawyers for turning in legal filings that she call .. ...
Darrell Issa and the GOP members of the House Oversight Committee are getting impatient over what they say is purposeful stonewalling of White House officials over the targeting of tea party people. They have yet to set another hearing for the Internal Revenue Service commissioner but one is coming. Staffers for the committee say neither the Justice Department nor the Obama Administration have given signs that a proper investigation into the scandal is in fact going forth, The Daily Mail reported. Meanwhile, a new election cycle approaches — and it’s still not clear how the IRS foot-dragging over nonprofit exemption status applications from conservative groups affected the last election, aides said. Mr. Issa, for his part, is frustrated with what he sees as a White House dodge. One of the aides to his Republican committee members suggested that the federal government was lurching toward a constitutional crisis due to the lack of openness and accountability, The Daily Mail said. “They’ve blown o .. ...
Republican lawmakers, frustrated by the Justice Department's slow-moving probe into the IRS targeting scandal and "conflict of interest" concerns, are now calling for the investigators to be investigated. Reps. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on Wednesday formally requested that the Justice Department's inspector general launch his own probe into the department's review of IRS activities. The request marks a serious escalation of their complaints about the department's conduct and, specifically, a decision to have a President Obama backer lead the investigation. "The Department has created the appearance that it is not taking seriously its responsibility to conduct a thorough investigation of IRS misconduct," Issa and Jordan wrote in a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

It s been a key subject of dispute throughout the Fast and Furious saga but one shrouded in mystery: whether wiretap applications reviewed and approved by senior Justice Department officials should have tipped them off about the dangerous tactics being used in the operation.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, released their first of three reports on Fast and Furious this week. The report implicated three Justice Department officials and five ATF agents. William Hoover, No. 2 at ATF, is no longer employed there. Two more final reports will highlight "the devastating failure of supervision and leadership" at the Obama Justice Department, as well as an "unprecedented obstruction of the [congressional] investigation by the highest levels of the Justice Department, including the attorney general himself." Meanwhile, Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) used the Aurora, Colorado, shooting as an excuse to introduce legislation that would effectively outlaw the online purchase of ammunition. The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act would live up to its name by requiring that ammo buyers who aren't dealers must prese ...

6/30/12 - So glad to see Republicans in Congress have a few who can outsmart Democrats. I'm talking about what Rep. Darrell Issa, Co-Chair of the Congressional oversight Committee, did. Just before the vote to hold Eric Holder in contempt, he was able tp place the details of a secret wiretap application from the botched Fast and Furious gunwalking fiasco into the Public Domain so we can all see the crux of what this dispute is about and determine for ourselves why it's important. Using Congress' protection under the speech and debate claus in the Constitution, Issa entered summaries of a March 2010 wiretap application into the Congressional Record. The summaries show that federal agents repeatedly lost track of guns they knew were beeing trafficked to Mexican cartels. That was a violation of Justice Department policy. It should have raised a red flag with top Department officials who signed off on the wiretaps. It didn't. The wiretap applications contradict Holder's assertion that nothing in the applicati ...

Clip of Rep. Darrell Issa on Fox: Very clearly, [Obama] made a crisis [via Fast & Furious] and they're using this crisis to somehow take away or limit people's Second Amendment rights. Stephen Colbert: Yes! Very clearly, Obama started this gun-tracking program in 2006 when he hypnotized George Bush, then he secretly ordered Attorney General Holder to order the Justice Department to order the ATF to order gun shops to sell guns to Mexican drug cartels and then lose track of them, thereby panicking Americans to gin up support for the draconian gun-control measures that Obama has never introduced! ---The Colbert Report
INTERESTING READ... NOT WHAT YOU WOULD EVER GET FROM FOX. In a letter to the committee chairman, Darrell Issa of California, a Justice Department official said the Executive Privilege applies to documents that explain how the department learned there were problems with an investigation in Arizona of gun-running into Mexico, called Operation Fast and Furious. At the start of a hearing, Issa called the president's action "an untimely" assertion of privilege. The committee was later to vote on whether to cite Holder for contempt of Congress for failing to turn over the documents. If the panel approved that, the contempt citation would then go to the full House. Technically, if the full House approved, there could be a federal case against Holder, but history strongly suggests the matter won't get that far. First Read: What happens after the contempt vote? "The president has asserted Executive Privilege," Deputy Attorney General James Cole said in the letter to Issa. "We regret that we have arrived at this po ...

A.G HOLHER is as worthless as a wart on ODUMBAS BUTT Mole helps Rep. Issa whack Justice Dept. By Jordy Yager - 06/07/12 05:00 AM ET With the help of a mole, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has turned the tables on Attorney General Eric Holder. Issa has long been exasperated with Holder, claiming that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has been withholding information on a controversial gun-running operation. But through an anonymous source, Issa has obtained information about the initiative that is under a Federal Court-ordered seal. Giving such information out is a federal crime, raising the question of whether the Justice Department will seek to prosecute what Republicans are calling a whistleblower. Issa has asked the DOJ for the documents — wiretap applications it used in the botched federal gun-tracking Operation Fast and Furious — for months. The California lawmaker has taken preliminary steps to move contempt-of-Congress citations against Holder, but it remains unclear if GOP leaders support ...
