AG Eric Holder is jammed in by the decision to create Fast and Furious.  Oh, I know he claims no knowledge of it.  The guns may not jam but he is in a real jam just now.  I think it’s looking more ugly for the WH and their knowledge of when and who in the Fast and Furious debacle.  Heads should roll and the first one should be the AG Holder.  He can’t say he didn’t know.  I am not buying it nor his damn guns.

WASHINGTONLate Friday, the White House turned over new documents in the Congressional investigation into the ATF “Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal.

 The documents show extensive communications between then-ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix office Bill Newell – who led Fast and Furious – and then-White House National Security Staffer Kevin O’Reilly. Emails indicate the two also spoke on the phone. Such detailed, direct communications between a local ATF manager in Phoenix and a White House national security staffer has raised interest among Congressional investigators looking into Fast and Furious. Newell has said he and O’Reilly are long time friends.
