Well, lookie what's back in the news! 

While the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent Wednesday focusing on a Senate hearing they were hoping would implicate President Trump in obstruction of justice, they ignored a House Oversight Committee report that showed President Obama’s administration did just that. “An absolutely blistering report tonight out saying the Obama administration in general and former Attorney General Eric Holder in particular repeatedly lied to the family of a slain Border 

Baier handed the segment off to Correspondent William LaJeunesse, who reported that “Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry died in December 2010, killed by guns tied to an Obama administration plan that armed Mexicans. A scandal officials tried to hide by wrongly claiming executive privilege.”

“The [Justice] Department’s belated admission that those 64,000 pages were not privileged, puts the gold seal of authenticity on the House's bipartisan vote to hold the attorney general in contempt,” testified Senator Chuck Grassley at a hearing of the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

According to the committee’s report, the evidence of the federal government’s knowledge of the botched program was damning. “Emails contained in the House Oversight Committee’s report shows top officials knew the ATF sent guns to Mexico even before Terry’s death,” LaJeunesse explain. There was even correspondence between high-ranking officials blowing off the danger they put people in. As was mentioned in the report:

ranking officials blowing off the danger they put people in. As was mentioned in the report:

“It's a tricky case given the number of guns that have walked,” said a deputy attorney general. A colleague replied: “It's not going to be any big surprise that a bunch of U.S. guns are being used in Mexico, so I’m not sure how much grief we get for guns walking.” Months later, two of those guns were used against agent Terry, a fact denied to Congress and Terry’s family.

“My only goal was to make sure he was laid to rest with honors. That honor has been insulted by cover-ups and deception by the very people he served,” condemned Josephine Terry, Brain Terry’s mother, at the Wednesday hearing. “Only one possible motivation remains for all those involved who have covered up Fast and Furious. That is to conceal their own shame and disgrace.”

LaJuenesse also noted how “the report claims the administration try to stop the investigation by discrediting whistleblower John Dodson.” “I was lied about and disparaged, publicly attacked, ridiculed, libeled, I've been transferred 11 times, denied promotion, ostracized, barred from government workplaces, and banned from public buildings,” Dodson told the House panel.

Ignoring breaking developments in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal is nothing new for the Big Three Networks. Back in mid-April of this year, they skipped over the news that Mexican and U.S. officials had arrested Brian Terry’s murderer. “The suspected shooter in the 2010 murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry has been arrested…” announced CNN’s Jake Tapper at the time, “38-year-old Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was taken into custody in Mexico Wednesday, it was part of a joint operation between the two countries.”

BRET BAIER: An absolutely blistering report tonight out saying the Obama administration in general and former Attorney General Eric Holder in particular repeatedly lied to the family of a slain Border Patrol officer about the weapons used in his death, and stonewalled efforts to get at the truth. Correspondent William La Jeunesse tonight on Operation Fast and Furious.

[Cuts to video]

JOSEPHINE TERRY: My only goal was to make sure he was laid to rest with honors. That honor has been insulted by cover-ups and deception by the very people he served.

WILLIAM LAJEUNESSE: Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry died in December 2010, killed by guns tied to an Obama administration plan that armed Mexicans. A scandal officials tried to hide by wrongly claiming executive privilege.

CHUCK GRASSLEY: The [Justice] Department’s belated admission that those 64,000 pages were not privileged, puts the gold seal of authenticity on the House's bipartisan vote to hold the attorney general in contempt.

LAJEUNESSE: Emails contained in the House Oversight Committee’s report shows top officials knew the ATF sent guns to Mexico even before Terry’s death. “It's a tricky case given the number of guns that have walked,” said a deputy attorney general. A colleague replied: “It's not going to be any big surprise that a bunch of U.S. guns are being used in Mexico, so I’m not sure how much grief we get for guns walking.” Months later, two of those guns were used against agent Terry, a fact denied to Congress and Terry’s family.

TERRY: Only one possible motivation remains for all those involved who have covered up Fast and Furious. That is to conceal their own shame and disgrace.

LAJEUNESSE: Even the Border Patrol which sent Terry’s team into the desert, didn’t know about the operation.

ROBERT HEYER: I believe that if Brian Terry and his team had known this information, chances are Brian would be alive today.

LAJEUNESSE: The report claims the administration try to stop the investigation by discrediting whistleblower Don Dotson.

JOHN DODSON: I was lied about and disparaged, publicly attacked, ridiculed, libeled, I've been transferred 11 times, denied promotion, ostracized, barred from government workplaces, and banned from public buildings.

[Cuts back to live]

LAJEUNESSE: Lawmakers noted no one from the ATF or Justice Department was fired or seriously disciplined for the cover up.

Wow. We all knew it, and I know of nobody who was on this like you were, Robin, and right from the beginning!

Every Dog! I am SO HAPPY to see this back. People need to pay for all of their corruption and lawlessness in the Obama Administration. 

I'm happy this is back too!

If we ever get to one-party rule, as would have happened with a Hillary, the truth will never see the light of day.  Honor in Washington is nearly a thing of the past anyway.

The crimes and lawlessness of the past administration must be brought back to the forefront, and, those responsible need to be held accountable once and for all. We are a country of laws and it's about time some are followed. 

Thanks to JG for finding this new info! 

*New* Fast and Furious secrets from government emails

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry Image from: The Brian Terry Foundation


  • Justice Department officials were panicked and angered by news coverage
  • Privately, Congressional Democrats considered Fast and Furious investigation to be legitimate
  • “They don’t see the whole effort as a ‘witch hunt'”
  • The Justice Department called the facts a “moving target,” as officials continually revised their public responses
  • Officials repeatedly denied press accounts that proved true

Six years late, we have new insight into the government’s secretive Fast and Furious operation in which federal agents purposely let thousands of assault rifles and other weapons be trafficked from the U.S. to Mexican drug cartels, where they were used in many murders and other crimes.

*READ* New House Oversight Committee report: Fast and Furious— six ...

A new House Oversight Committee report contains Department of Justice emails that the government improperly withheld from Congress and reporters. The report was released Wednesday as the Oversight Committee held a little publicized hearing on still unanswered questions six years after the investigations began.

*WATCH* New House Oversight Committee hearing: Fast and Furious— si...

Below are excerpts from the Congressional report that give a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes denial, confusion and panic with in the Department of Justice from the time I first interviewed whistleblower: Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms special agent John Dodson for CBS News.

*READ and WATCH* Attkisson’s Fast and Furious reports

Dodson stepped forward and spoke with me publicly in March 2011 after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered by illegal immigrants carrying weapons trafficked in the Fast and Furious operation. Dodson said the agency was trying to cover up the murder’s link to Fast and Furious, which he’d objected to internally for months.

Eventually, the Department of Justice acknowledged it had provided false information to Congress about Fast and Furious. Attorney General Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress for withholding documents. President Obama declared executive privilege to keep some of them secret. The Inspector General issued a scathing report criticizing many aspects about Fast and Furious and management of the case by the Department of Justice.

(Note: the below government emails fall under my Freedom of Information Act requests made years ago, but the government improperly withheld them from me.)

Preorder Attkisson’s new book: The Smear

Although propagandists have advanced a political narrative that Fast and Furious is somehow a “bogus” “politically-driven” “disproven” “conspiracy,” the record is now unequivocal in that the allegations, as originally reported, were proven factually correct time and again. CBS News received the Edward R. Murrow award and the Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Reporting for my Fast and Furious reports.

Today, the Justice Department continues to withhold documents and stonewall Congress and press requests for information revealing how many crimes have been committed by criminals using Fast and Furious-trafficked weapons.

My investigation uncovered many other operations besides Fast and Furious in which the government was “letting guns walk.” After the practice was exposed, the Department of Justice told Congress it had put a stop to it.
