House Republicans are fed up an attorney general Eric Holder and they say the attorney general -- stonewalling over operation fast and furious.
And get in -- way when it.
No one has been -- There hasn't been a demotion.
There hasn't been off firing.
There hasn't been a sanction.
There hasn't let -- frowning face on a performance -- valuation.
There's been nothing.
Passing train caddie says attorney general holder and DOJ if fish shows should be forced to pay out of their own pockets Cashman -- just -- you -- Good evening Greta how are you.
Very well and I -- I know you're extremely serious about this fast and -- investigation I know that you're very unhappy that the documents requested have not been turned or for congress and I know that there is a beginning steps of looking for a contempt of congress charge against attorney Jeff this is something different tell me your idea.
Well the idea Jason.
You know Greta we're limited in in our ability to get together attorney general's attention and one what you can get it.
This is start cutting appropriations.
I cut appropriations from senior executive officials within -- -- And then Jason Terry if it's today cut more morning from the appropriations bill.
I don't know what else we can do I have appealed -- all the places of respect for the rule of all I have appealed -- -- home.
To treat this as a criminal justice matter and not a political matter.
It's been over a year and we can't get.
112 of the documents that the inspector general has so when I go home and -- mask or when I go when your show cannot -- legitimate.
What's going on what fast and furious I don't have any idea because -- Department of Justice.
What which I hold in a much higher.
Position or -- higher stead than any other cabinet official.
I have higher expectations for help.
And he won't comply with a subpoena Greta what would happen if you didn't show up for jury duty if you were summoned for jury duty -- you didn't show up what would happen.
-- in jail so how can the attorney general act any differently than an average citizen that's my point and if I can't get -- attention.
Still look committee hearing they will get it with money.
I should probably add to the.
Viewers who don't remember you are a former assistant United States attorneys so the whole idea would justice farm -- -- bit more near and dear to your heart than somebody who has not been deeply involved in acrylic justice maybe not but -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's also harder for me to be quite frank with you that the United States attorney in South Carolina was a Barack Obama pointed -- politically he is still the left of mouse a -- He asked me to do is a background check.
But because he has enough confidence in me -- safe as a fellow prosecutor.
To put politics aside and do the right thing and he is doing a wonderful job in South Carolina.
So this is not about politics to me.
The reason I like the criminal justice system is there or.
Republican or Democrat the victims -- police officers or prosecutors.
It's about respect for the rule of wall.
Hi -- I don't know why the attorney general does it just.
Give us the documents they -- exonerate his department -- -- -- enough.
He must know something you know you're an attorney Greta when one party doesn't turn over documents there's a presumption that those documents must not have been very favorable -- For you.
That's the only thing I'm left to concludes there's something in these documents he doesn't want us to get it he's willing to cut.
His employees' salaries to keep us from getting it.
I I -- discuss -- I actually.
Do not believe he doesn't know who authorized fast and furious and that sites are the one simple question that I do -- -- -- can't be put him.
And you get an answer I know what the answer is but -- there's -- there's a dead border agent murdered.
And it seems to me that we need to know.
We need to know who authorizes.
And how -- -- did people know about it so that.
Those people who exercise such bad judgment even attorney gen himself admits that this is very bad judgment that if they are a position up Howard out we moved them to another job or someplace else that they don't show that -- exhibit the bad judgment again.
For future harm besides I don't understand why don't just why they don't just -- forget the -- if they just tell you for starters.
I don't either and and and and that's why I mentioned today I don't think you showed the clip there have been no sanctions whatsoever never -- -- -- transfers.
No one's bolster job a Border Patrol agents lost his life and keep the -- there are innocent Mexican citizens who have died and and frankly will continue to die.
No no -- no punishment no penalty.
What we're better than that got -- the Department of Justice is better than that.
It and if we can say this is about race or about politics.
It is not to me it is about respect for the rule wall and a blindfolded woman holding a set a scales and that's all about tonight.
I also think that you know what we really do owe it to the Sam -- Of this and murdered -- -- -- -- a little decency and we we -- you know and then we have we still -- get the facts of them we elected them backed out of you know I at a minimum so.
This foot dragging an -- I know it's gotta stop I -- them.
Well thank you for bringing light to a you have a much bigger microphone than that a little former prosecutor from South Carolina.
And you denigrate and they're different because than he did any good down -- put -- -- Thank you -- this --
