Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced the forthcoming release of secret documents regarding the Obama administration’s failed, controversial gun running scheme known as Fast and Furious.
Conservatives tried for years to get answers from the Department of Justice, but with Obama in the White House, they were ignored.
But now President Trump is running the show…
According to IJR:
“On Wednesday, the Department of Justice announced it will be releasing more documents related to the botched “Fast and Furious” operation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The documents were withheld by then-Attorney General Eric Holder.
In its announcement, the DOJ said the documents’ release will help end “six years of litigation”:
Today, the Department of Justice entered into a conditional settlement agreement with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and will begin to produce additional documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. The conditional settlement agreement, filed in federal court in Washington D.C., would end six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce documents requested by the Committee.
“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said. “This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”
The announcement is timely, as Kent Terry — the brother of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was killed by a rifle that was traced back to the operation — has been vocal in asking for documents to be released so they can have some closure and hold those who are responsible for his brother’s death accountable.”
