Arizona launches investigation of Fast and Furious

Written By: Bob - Jan• 21•12

Arizona has apparently tired of Holder crony Cynthia Schnedar slow-rolling the U.S. Department of Justice’s Inspector General cover-up investigation, and has started their own just one day after the first federal official asserted his Fifth Amendment rights.

Arizona’s state legislature will open its own investigation into the Obama administration’s disgraced gun-running program, known as “Fast and Furious,” the speaker of the state House said Friday.

Speaker Andy Tobin created the committee, and charged it with looking at whether the program broke any state laws — raising the possibility of state penalties against those responsible for the operation.

It’s a turnaround from the rest of the immigration issue, where the federal government has sued to block the state’s own set of laws.

Combined with the chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona refusal to go quietly as the DOJ’s fall guy, the possibility of Fast and Furious resulting in criminal charges for Obama Administration appointees just rose substantially.

    I agree, There has been nothing but cover up from Eric Holder, DOJ and Obama. Please find out the truth and help prosecute all involved with Fast and Furious.
