They -- that is what oversight -- -- crisis says contrary to what justice department of fish those claimant have been claiming -- -- is says newly obtained wiretaps show that senior Justice Department officials knew about.
And approve fast and furious tactics.
Now as you know the ATF fast and furious program a lot of illegally obtained weapons to walk over the border from the United States added to Mexico.
Two of those guns were found at the December 2010 murder scene of slain border agent Brian Terry now don't forget it took only weeks to get answers.
Even action on the Secret Service prostitution scandal in Columbia so ask yourself why's it taken more than a year and a half.
And still no answers for the family of murdered Brian Terry.
You talk osment Jason chase that's joins us good -- -- Tiger.
Right as a big hearing tomorrow for the House Judiciary Committee attorney general Eric -- going to be their wedding and ask him.
Well we want to know the same basic questions who knew about this.
And then who participated in the cover up because it is crystal clear to me and of people like trade dowdy and chairman -- set.
That we have been lied to -- congress we have been totally misled by the Department of Justice.
President Obama back in march of 2011.
Promise that they were via exposure to this it would rectify the problem and hold people accountable that hasn't.
And so the attorney general -- put this the -- all long long time ago as you pointed out but he hasn't done that because I think there's a cover up going.
I think at the stand what the Justice Department says -- -- disagree very vigorously with the constant -- -- statements they say that -- got the facts rod and so they're -- they're battling the on us when they say that you guys are all wrong and that's.
Well we remember we issued a subpoena back in October -- a subpoena which they have not complied with.
Speaker Boehner about three weeks ago sent a letter over to the Department of Justice asking some very basic questions of them in the White House.
They have not complied with that so they refuse to provide these documents which if in the case that it what they're arguing the -- -- justice would cleared them of -- misconceptions that provide us the documents.
But I think it's crystal clear -- that the reason they don't give us the documents.
And only the whistle blowers are given us that the the documents.
Is it demonstrates that what the Department of Justice is saying in writing in their testimony what they're leading people to believe by talking in the media.
Is not true and that's why they haven't come clean this thus far.
-- with all due respect to the committee.
Is now I year and a half and this border agent -- still doesn't have answers and we got answers really let me split fast out of Peru and the Secret Service stand -- You guys -- -- a subpoena over it hasn't been enforced no contempt citation you look awfully weak you look like that you know that you just.
You're just gonna hold hearing after hearing after hearing -- -- after hearing this is getting nowhere fast and we -- -- -- -- if you really believe this is a cover up when he had to put some teeth in the investigation and get the answers.
I'll I think -- -- slow walked I think the administration wants -- make this go past the election now that speaker Boehner is engaged a leader cantor.
They've asking for this information to I think it's gonna raise the whole another level I think we're trying to demonstrate there were bending over backwards to give the administration every opportunity gets its compliant provide this basic information.
But the clocks ticking I think we either.
Pushing towards say no other resolution -- out.
They -- -- clocks ticking that's an avid listener I think it happened a year and a half the clock is so -- And and it's good it's so gone by you even been quoted as saying the speaker Boehner will be sufficiently embarrassed.
By the continuing yes the fact that this doesn't get results -- said that about the speaker -- I just don't -- this year and a half.
You still have a lot of authority asked questions and you've gotten nowhere fast and so you -- in some ways like year old yet if you want those answers you could get them but you guys are letting it be slow -- you're not in Kansas because you're not put the eighteenth and does investigation and and the family sitting out there wanting answers for their -- -- -- one.
Gary -- was more than a year ago there were actually 31 Democrats who signed a letter to the White House to the attorney general saying.
You need to come clean on this you have not provided this information I just don't see where the outrages I mean you look at a handful of -- Chairman I -- -- self -- well that's Thursday.
Well -- -- answers.
Hey it was up to me we would be in the contempt proceedings you do.
Credit if anybody in America ignored a subpoena -- go to jail and in this case we can't even get the attorney general to come clean on this I think we're we're left with no choice but to go to -- And they tell that the country.
-- -- -- leadership.
That's -- -- leadership does your speaker unionize so not so represented other Republicans are there if if you think that's the way to go this -- we're very out of your subpoena doesn't get answered -- your letters don't -- -- just to mark it began thinking attorney general down there he doesn't answer questions but -- -- your -- if you wanted to do something.
The next step is tomorrow but I'm not -- -- argue with -- Greta.
I think we're we're left with no other decision except to go to contempt because the attorney general is just totally ignored us.
I think it based on the documents -- we have thank goodness for the whistle blowers.
It is crystal clear to me the evidence is there the Department of Justice is lying and people like Lanny brewer and Jason Weinstein and these people have got to be -- held accountable and they've got to be fired.
And in so far it hasn't happened and I.
I'm out here -- with young up quite got to.
I would think the thing is said -- whatever the truth isn't truth is that the Justice Department says you guys are all nuts about this they should bring the information and and that that should be the end of it.
If they if they are -- something you guys need to get a needed to do it quickly you have the tools would this have been drain as and the family really deserves much more than what.
Weren't what we -- we're not giving them.
-- slowly and and you have the same people like Lanny brewer and Jason Weinstein and these people in place -- Gary gray -- for instance.
That are still in positions of power.
They know even the Department of Justice said that that the operation was fundamentally flawed and yet you have the same information in place yet the same people in place.
And it might my colleague -- Gabby says there are even have a frowning face on there other performance evaluations for goodness sakes -- What are they doing about it they're not taken responsibility congress gotta stand up for itself.
Well let's just say what you what you are good -- hearing tomorrow and the attorney general shows up a test vice president thank you sir.
