The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

House leadership finally active in Fast and Furious

Written By: Bob - May• 18•12

It was a long time coming but Speaker of the House John Boehner and other congressional leaders are apparently, belatedly, on board for accountability in Murdergate.

House Speaker John Boehner and his top deputies are stepping up pressure on Attorney General Eric Holder in an effort to enforce the congressional subpoena of documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious.

On Friday, Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy and House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined forces to fire off a letter to Holder.

“We write to express our concerns with the lack of full cooperation from the Department of Justice with the ongoing Congressional investigation into the operation known as ‘Fast & Furious’ and the related death of Border Agent Brian Terry,” the House leaders wrote to Holder.

The House GOP leaders said there are “two key questions” that “remain unanswered.”

“[F]irst, who on your leadership team was informed of the reckless tactics used in the Fast & Furious prior to Agent Terry’s murder; and, second, did your leadership team mislead or misinform Congress in response to a Congressional subpoena?” the letter reads.

There are actually three major unanswered questions, but I’ll take what I can get.
