-- to talk -- -- another topic you've been involved in from the beginning the investigation to fast and furious the gun walking operation that went wrong and led to the death.
At least of one Border Patrol agent what it on the US side we believe many others on the other side of the border in Mexico as well.
Good news with the arrest of one of the suspects an agent Terry's death but this week we understand that the inspector general.
-- within the DOJ was expected to have his report on fast and furious roll out there's a hearing on the hill.
We understand that report may not be ready in time for him to testify what do you make a -- We're supposed to have a hearing on Tuesday with the anticipation the will have the documents that we can go over that.
The reality is the Obama administration has been woefully inadequate in following through -- prosecuting this case.
We -- purposely the Obama administration released nearly 2000 weapons to the drug cartels mostly AK forty sevens they have a -- Border Patrol agent hundreds of dead people in Mexico.
And then you've had nobody not a single person at the senior level the Department of Justice.
Held responsible for this they said they were going to be the most open and transparent administration in history.
Yet they won't hand over to congress the 140000.
Documents that they have so.
We expect the inspector general to look through those 140000 documents.
And then provide us some information to congress because we're not only the oversight committee -- also supposed to be the government reform and we're trying to make sure with.
Chairman I set -- dowdy and others.
Myself to make sure that the administration is held accountable.
And that we actually make the reforms necessary so this never ever happens again.
Do you expect that you will get new information from this inspector general report to expect that it will be fair.
And I you'll get some detail that you've not been able to get your hands on so far from this administration.
What we hope so we know there -- a 140000.
Documents out there despite issuing a subpoena we've only be given less than 8000 of those documents.
The inspector general supposed to be able to see all 140000.
Of these documents we're gonna question and make sure that he's been able to see those documents.
But then the question is what did they do about -- we know there were troubles in the Phoenix office we know there are troubles.
Within ATF but we also know that there -- real trouble -- the senior level the department of justice and their thus far the administration has not been held accountable.
And has not falter a president Obama's promise is as such a scandal.
With it dead Border Patrol agent and -- -- think about it.
2000 AK forty sevens were given to the drug cartels and it doesn't make the cover of time magazine or Newsweek or anything else.
I I it's just a shame it's a crying shame that -- at the national media has not cover this more.
All right congressman Jason tickets thank you so much for your time will be watching that hearing on Tuesday it does he with develops thank you.
