Operation fast and -- news some good news and some bad news first let's have the good news.
Mexican police say they have arrested a second suspect in the December 2010 murder -- Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
And out of the bad news tomorrow's house oversight committee hearing that fast and -- to get some -- has been postponed.
Why well the Justice Department's report is not ready we just spoke with oversight committee chair -- -- -- -- Mr.
chairman -- -- -- -- -- be bad credit OK so you expected a hearing tomorrow on fast and furious bus unhappy.
We've been working with the inspectors general and quite frankly he's been getting so much push back from justice.
That he's got a lot of additional edits to do and work and we wanna be reasonable we wanna get the final report so we've agreed and he said committed that he can get it done so we never -- hearing next Wednesday which is what we really want to get to the truth.
So they think hearing they -- anticipate tomorrow was on the inspector general's report.
Which is not out so do you put it -- put off until will be done.
Well exactly although it's been done this is -- middle of August this is really about.
DOJ objecting to things -- we're in the report and -- -- there have been redacted.
And Michael Horwitz the IG.
Doing what he needs to do which is to push back together as quite as good -- report has completed report -- public report as possible.
-- that I have a copy yet to letters were sent to one on the fifth of September and one on the day of the seventh of September.
And what I thought was most cases about this is that.
Is that he would whose -- -- -- can't -- Nikkei could be like grand jury minutes that makes sense.
Documents under seal which may be like a wiretap applications that but one of the things that I -- was -- -- -- is what he -- is -- him.
Is -- he's got he's giving the report to the Department of Justice.
And they're making -- to make a determination whether any information airport falls within the presence assertion.
-- executive privilege which you have held -- congress' help attorney general.
Holder in contempt -- fighting out of court and now he's making the decision in the UIG is supposed to be independent report.
-- -- The problem the IG did look at -- February 4.
Documents did make a determination that they were.
Appropriate for his report.
And now justice is trying to essentially reject those but remember that's the cover up -- to congress.
And they would like to have this just to be about what went wrong in Phoenix rather than how senator Grassley received false reports how congress was lied to.
And -- for ten months one stories being told.
Well the truth was different and particularly for the -- family that all along wanted what we hope to get them which is accountability both to.
Of the shooters but also the people that were involved up the food chain and then ultimately people -- DOJ who had such bad judgment.
We'll -- units have been almost two years of the December 2 years I should note that.
Over the last couple days one of them men accused of killing beat one of the what one of the five accused of bad -- agent's death.
Terry has been arrested that's good news arrested in Mexico for.
-- -- does that mean you say you you identify that you think that there will not be justice in Mexico no no.
Do you be extradited so it'll be a fairly significant period of time and so on.
But yes we're actually we're very happy the -- of the chair Brian Terry's family wants to see these shooters held accountable.
Worth were happy for them.
-- the justice is not holding themselves accountable and that's where congress has a further little.
Which brings me back to this inspector general report.
If he's going to he did you know eliminate grand jury information.
Certain other information was that within -- -- including what is asserted under executive privilege.
How the world we think it's going to be any profoundly different than the information you've -- accumulate to your hearings what do you expect to get.
-- we're trying to be cautiously optimistic our experience with IG's is good.
There are partners in rooting out waste fraud and abuse in government so we're we're gonna wait to see the document.
-- but of course.
But the very thing you want to keep that very thing that you want that you think is gonna give you so much information that congress has fought so hard for which is now sitting in the United States district court.
The very day he is specifically told you in this letter.
You're not gonna get -- so what in the world could possibly be knew that you think -- get.
-- -- he can reach conclusions.
So for example Greta he could reach the conclusion.
That Lanny brewer or error -- over -- Jason Weinstein or others.
Knew enough that they should have taken action new enough that we've been lied to knew enough about the cover up he could reach a conclusion.
Redacted material so we want to be cautiously optimistic we want to believe in the IG because our record.
The 121000 men and women to 73 IDs and their employees has been good.
And if we can't make the IG system work the if you will be self enforcement and government.
That we can't make government work so what if we're wrong we're cautiously optimistic but we're gonna read -- report carefully.
And it's painfully.
Slow this -- been two years painfully slow for this family.
It is painfully slow even the unsealing of the warns that led to this arrest undoubtedly.
The indictments -- slow in coming.
The Terry family -- -- next week I'll be in Arizona we're dedicating the Border Patrol station that Brian worked out of in his name only the second time in history -- Border Patrol stations been named.
That took a long time but it took a lot less time than getting real accountability for the wrongdoing that led to his death mr.
