An internal Department of Justice investigation cleared Attorney General Eric Holder of wrongdoing in the “Fast and Furious” operation, a program that came under fire in an investigation led by California congressman Rep. Darrell Issa (R), who alleged that Holder’s negligence had botched the operation. According to Talking Points Memo, Holder released a statement slamming the investigation as a “baseless” waste of time and resources.

“It is unfortunate that some were so quick to make baseless accusations before they possessed the facts about these operations – accusations that turned out to be without foundation and that have caused a great deal of unnecessary harm and confusion,” Holder said. “I hope today’s report acts as a reminder of the dangers of adopting as fact unsubstantiated conclusions before an investigation of the circumstances is completed.”

3. The wackos are blasting the President over this, saying that it was a cover-up. :facepalm:

What gets me is the hypocrisy of how they waste taxpayer money while complaining about the debt.

7. Issa will still go after him

he creates his own red meat, and has decided this man is it . If anyone needs investigating in this scenario, it's not Holder!
