A stunning development has occurred in the years-long battle over Barack Obamas disastrous Fast and Furious gun-running program.
A federal judge has rejected Obamas assertion of executive privilege to keep documents about the operation a secret some of which may have implicated former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and other Department of Justice and ATF agents in unlawful or criminal activity, according to Politico.
A federal judge has rejected President Barack Obamas assertion of executive privilege to deny Congress access to records pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, a gunrunning probe that allowed thousands of weapons to flow across the border into Mexico.
U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Tuesday that the Justice Departments public disclosures about its response to the so-called gun walking controversy undercut Obamas executive privilege claim.
The U.S. House of Representatives held Holder in Contempt of Congress in 2012, the first A.G. to so censured in U.S. history. However, Obama blocked release of the documents from being investigated by the House, which sued Obama and Holder in Federal court.
But now, Judge Jackson said the Justice Department must release the documents publicly a huge defeat for the Obama White House.
FoxNews analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said: It is hard to overstate the gravity of this ruling. This will result in multiple Congressional investigations, and potential criminal charges for some very big names.
The gun running probe, which resulted in thousands of deadly firearms falling into the hands of drug cartels and gangs in Mexico, ended up with those same guns being used to kill American law enforcement officials.
One of the guns was confirmed as having been used to murders of two U.S. agents: Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agent Jaime Zapata in Mexico in 2011. In addition, more than 300 Mexicans mostly children and teenagers have been killed or wounded by Fast and Furious guns
In total, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) lost track of over 2,000 guns…some of which have turned up in violent crimes, murders and arrests in Arizona and Texas.
Most stunning, Judge Jackson is an Obama-appointed judge, who has clearly had enough of the Obama White Houses criminal activities.
Operation Fast and Furious is one of the most dangerous things this incompetent White House has ever been involved in, and now it will be exposed to the light of day.
