No One in Washington Is Talking About This Obama Scandal
In the midst of the 2016 Presidential campaign and all the noise about Donald Trump, President Obama has recently enjoyed little resistance from the GOP.
It seems the GOP elite are more concerned about Trump than Obama.
Yet, there is this one scandal that Obama can’t shake.
The deadly-but-forgotten government gun-running scandal known as “Fast and Furious” has lain dormant for years, thanks to White House stonewalling and media compliance. But newly uncovered e-mails have reopened the case, exposing the anatomy of a coverup by an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history.
A federal judge has forced the release of more than 20,000 pages of emails and memos previously locked up under President Obama’s phony executive-privilege claim. A preliminary review shows top Obama officials deliberately obstructing congressional probes into the border gun-running operation.
Fast and Furious was a Justice Department program that allowed assault weapons — including .50-caliber rifles powerful enough to take down a helicopter — to be sold to Mexican drug cartels allegedly as a way to track them. But internal documents later revealed the real goal was to gin up a crisis requiring a crackdown on guns in America. Fast and Furious was merely a pretext for imposing stricter gun laws.
Let’s hope Trump sinks his teeth in this issue.
With Trump’s recent NRA endorsement now would be the perfect time to expose this issue to the light of day.
