Democrats on the House Oversight Committee are officially trying to cover for Attorney General Eric Holder just before he testifies on Thursday about Operation Fast and Furious, with anti-Second Amendment Ranking Member Elijah Cummings leading the way.
Last night, Cummings released a 95 page
waste of paper and taxpayer money report, alleging that top Justice Department officials did not authorize the program, despite evidence showing otherwise.
The report tries to pin the blame back on a few "rogue" managers in the ATF Phoenix Field Division.
This is the same argument we've heard since the beginning of the scandal: it was a local operation, nobody important knew anything.
Will Eric Holder weasel out of it?
