From CBS news dated May 3, 2011
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) used asked Holder when first knew about the controversial Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) operation known as “Fast and Furious.” Though documents indicate Fast and Furious was started in 2009, Holder told Congress he only learned of it a “few weeks” ago.
That’s after a CBS News investigation into allegations about Fast and Furious and other gun trafficking cases. Issa also asked who at the Department of Justice, if not Holder, approved Fast and Furious. Holder stated that he didn’t know, but that investigations are underway to find that out.
Mr. Eric Holder—- Do you understand the definition of PERJURY? Your testimony is now the poster child for this CRIME! Myself, along with the rest of the American people will be awaiting your immediate Resignation.
Bailiff, please escort Mr. Holder to the detention cell.
Now where on earth did I put that TAR and those Feathers?
