The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee called Tuesday for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate whether Attorney General Eric Holder was honest when he testified earlier this year about his knowledge of a now-discredited federal gunrunning operation.
"Allegations that senior Justice Department officials may have intentionally misled Members of Congress are extremely troubling and must be addressed by an independent and objective special counsel," Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, wrote in a letter to President Barack Obama.
So expect "WHAT DID OBAMA KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT" as the Republicans desperately trying to take attention away from their loser candidates and Occupy Wall Street. Want to know where Republicans are going with their smoke and mirrors game? All the way to the top.
Just remember that Republicans were in charge, we got a war that killed thousands and a cover up operation that spanned the entire federal government. "Operation Fast and Furious" has all the vitamins the GOP box of idiot cereal needs: Obama's gonna take our guns, scary brown people waiting to kill everyone you love, and of course the black guys are corrupt thugs.
Fast and Furious was a stupid idea. If that's an impeachable offense, there's nobody left in politics in America.
