Welcome back the fallout is escalating over the fast and furious now president of the Border Patrol -- is calling on attorney general Eric Holder to step down.
There somebody responsible.
They need to be held accountable it's pretty simple for us we're looking that he turned over all the relevant documents.
We're also looking for him to answer all the questions honestly and truthfully.
Today I don't believe that he's done that and the fourth step as you stated is for him to resign his post as attorney general.
So will that be enough for Brian Terry's family joining us now is the slain border agents cousin Robert higher he's also the chairman of the new Brian Terry foundation.
And he also decided to new website which we'll talk about just in a moment on -- Brian Terry dot com nice to see this morning -- welcome to FOX & Friends.
Good morning played it they -- You heard -- -- -- -- they're talking is that enough for you would your family be OK with those results.
Well played and you got to remember it's been eighteen months since Brian was murdered.
That December 15 2000 intent -- Rio Rico Arizona.
It's been twelve months since we testified before congress.
Asking for three things truth justice and accountability.
So far we haven't got that.
And now on this late last week.
We haven't talked you since this happened.
President Obama invokes an executive privilege to keep some of these documents private course the Department of Justice sterilize it even asking for thousands of pages of documents in this case.
Because they want answers they want to know first of all who knew about this and when they knew about it what did they do.
When you heard the president invoked this executive privilege what did you think.
Well the same things that Darryl likes and the oversight committee are asking for -- are the things that Terry family needs to know.
Understandably they are very very frustrated with this process.
And understandably cell.
-- O'Brien died protecting.
The borders of the United States he was a US marine he was a police officer in his hometown -- Lincoln Park Michigan.
Anyways that Border Patrol agent and that's when he was murdered.
And he deserves better.
And he deserved an apology the family deserve an apology for what happened that's what the -- had been asking for attorney general Eric Holder.
And we've heard that that hadn't happened however we did now here.
Millar -- who's in it and assistance to the attorney general said that this has happened.
That it happened though in private away from the cameras that the attorney general didn't want a public display of it but he had a private conversation with the family can you confirm that.
The attorney general has reached out to the family.
Well it didn't happens it's quick it's the family had hoped but the attorney general has reached out to Brian's parents.
Okay and you can you share any thing more with us about that conversation.
We will keep that private -- -- the -- between the attorney general and the Terry family but what I want to do is point out that.
You know this is really turned -- to what a lot of people think it's a partisan fight.
When it really this is about right and wrong.
I think everyone acknowledges the tactics of -- -- which should have never been employed.
And we must make sure that this never happens again.
Part of that is holding people responsible holding the decision makers.
Accountable for the decisions made -- fast and furious and that's one of the reasons that we started the Bryan Terry foundation.
