Fast & Furious Blitz
The House passed H. Res. 706 on June 28, 2012, permitting the five lawyer Office of General Counsel of the House of Representatives to file a civil suit to seek documents related to operation Fast & Furious, which have been witheld by the Department of Justice. The 600 lawyer Criminal Division under Lanny Breuer now holds the documents. They include an analytical review prepared by Jason Weinstein, which seemed to change the DOJ tune.
The House now seems to be taking beanbag ammo to a fight with a heavily armed and well funded enterprise that knows alot about crime. Maybe the House should just appropriate some reward money, to see if the public will come forward with some iformation.
As of today, the House has not filed its lawsuit.
