If -- alarmed by fast and furious that brace yourself for grenade gate.
Did the Justice Department ATM just do it again and -- they tried to hide it.
There's Justin photos of grenades and ammunition shedding light on the bungled case an alleged cartel arms dealer.
The ATF was apparently up to its eyeballs and this one plus there are supposed to be tracking him.
But instead -- -- go twice south familiar concentrate Gary joins us good evening certainly -- up explained to me out what is this could make it won't run as -- petty -- for a prosecutor should.
And their parents -- -- good but what does this grenade -- Well.
King -- guy grenade holes which are not just music cartel is it is a disconnect drug -- Mexican national mother lives in the United States.
Getting grenade holes or shells is not inherently illegal.
But nonetheless ATF intercepted it and they.
They've putting device in these holes that as you know we're talking all fair even if there were explosion you could still -- -- back to hell moment sure what good that does there's a lot of people will be dead.
But that's what they did when the holes first came in.
Later Raun other ports came together ATF serve very old on like fast insurers from the standpoint they -- they old.
-- early to the border and turned him over to Mexican authorities who -- state.
I don't know.
Really disappointing part about this case and I have not been hasn't been critical of -- -- warranted.
But ATF repeatedly presented this case should the United States attorney's office in Arizona.
Who said that it lacked jury appeal they didn't think -- jury would delight.
200 something grenades that are being used by Mexican drug cartels so they would not -- -- prosecution.
He was Brandeis he gave a confession.
You -- have to be eager prosecutor -- when that case.
Who would lead goes okay this hideous grenade shows it is taking it in the mask on assembling them into real grenades with other sport and then of course there's one nightclub I think about a year ago was blown up -- 53 people -- -- is just horrible that the tragic goes whether it.
The ICS attorney's office at least they were only concerned with tracking it down fact -- and even if explodes.
He contracted so they've been in care for explode and my guess is he could save that -- that much concern for human life.
But what's the crime with having is there crime having shelves.
In the United States and driving him across the border of -- -- is that a crime.
No -- so -- did not just the shelves but 22.
To be complete once he had the Chelsea also ordered the older ports that went with that so he's in the process of building a grenade -- -- -- -- gunpowder.
And ATF's position was will we ever catch -- gun -- we can arresting right Dan.
What you will have to wait till then -- you.
We knew he was work on the Mexican drug cartels the other conspiracy case -- have a very.
Consider it a crime get a consensus and I really -- conspiracy -- -- shelves aren't illegal a conspiracy to commit the crime though there's a crime.
And so what and so he here he got away from the united we got stopped by the United States US attorney's office says that an -- appetite for.
It -- jury appeal this is 200 grenades with someone who has confessed to being port of a Mexican drug cartel.
In the United States attorney's office in Arizona said it lacked jury appeal.
I go back a year I ask AT if -- in fast and furious -- I.
When I was a prosecutor -- I never had a bad relationship with federal law enforcement.
The relationship between federal law enforcement in US attorney's office in Arizona was totally dysfunctional.
Department of Justice even agrees that US attorney's office -- prosecuted this case it'll have an explanation for why wasn't don't.
So don't whereas Bob -- hesitate to -- so -- -- -- -- -- it's warranted and oftentimes it is in this instance I think the United States attorney's office in their -- dropped the ball.
Tell examined that'd that'd be.
Terribly cold -- certain number to put on how many people may have died this grenades as the US yourself -- in the way no way to quantify that.
That no ma'am it much like fast and furious.
Nobody can help may be.
We may still be -- -- in the future these.
I grenades in these guns are on accounted for.
And -- -- to -- -- to -- -- piercing gonna get some answers out of the attorney general holder could keep bringing him up and ask no questions he keeps going back Communists have been like busy analysts investigation.
Yes ma'am and I and I have unified because when I knew all school or your show tonight went -- the for the house and asked.
The speaker's office and their lives so win or are we going to hold Eric Porter to the same level of accountability that you -- -- would be don't know if we got a summons are subpoena is not an option for us not to comply with -- and not at all this year when I say who as you know there's a patient man but even his patience has limits before Memorial Day.
-- reporter will either comply.
Or he will suffer consequences of one -- -- consequence of -- in contempt of congress.
Also won at his appropriations bill was all before the house and two weeks.
And -- -- they wanna sell Paper clips a scrap metal to raise money for the Department of Justice.
There will be -- many amendments guiding the appropriations.
For his department if he keeps.
Playing this game so this is a shot across the -- -- he's got for them for the budget attorney general and he's got to a Memorial Day.
It may be a little closer than across the bow.
Could it -- he's been warned.
We've been patient in my judgment is some this is this we've been too patient we've been more patient with him.
-- Police would be with you or me or any of your viewers.
And on it's not a political exercise to me it's a law enforcement exercise he needs to comply or needs to tell us what legal privilege he is citing.
-- keeps him from having to comply he hasn't done it wants.
