I met the Daily Caller's Matthew Boyle when I went to DC for the 8 December hearing. He's young, 24, driven and very smart. He was the guy whose stories on the increasing cascade of congressional calls for resignation provoked Eric Holder into his paranoid episode.
“You guys need to — you need to stop this. It’s not an organic thing that’s just happening. You guys are behind it.”
Matthew was as proud as a frog eating fire that Darrell Issa used that now semi-iconic photo and quote as a backdrop for the 8 December opening questioning.
Well, if Holder didn't like that, he's sure not going to like this troika of Boyle stories today. This is what I was hinting at earlier in my post about the possible opening of a Second Front in the Gunwalker investigation. The Second Front is here.
First, comes this lovely line from Congressman Jason Chaffetz: “The Attorney General is always involved in very serious matters . . . It’s the nature of the job. If he can’t handle it and thinks it’s somehow based on something other than his performance, maybe it is time for him to get another job.”
Next, young Matthew brings us this: "RNC chairman promises to make Fast and Furious a 2012 election theme."Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus reiterated his call for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation on Wednesday, and promised Operation Fast and Furious will be an election issue in 2012. “Holder may want to point fingers and play the blame game, but as the Attorney General, he bears the responsibility,” Priebus told The Daily Caller. “It’s past time for the attorney general to come clean and take responsibility and if he doesn’t, he has a boss who should.” “Obama’s leadership deficit in holding the members of his administration accountable demonstrates yet again that the president is taking Washington in the wrong direction and only making things worse,” said Preibus. “If Obama won’t fire Holder, we will,” Priebus added. “We’ll fire the whole team in just 11 months.”
Ah, yes, the stone albatross of a dope-on-a-rope. Of course the Obamanoids knew that that was part of the equation when they backed Holder and embraced him, hair on fire and all. But this next story. . . this makes it even worse.
Connecticut independent Sen. Joe Lieberman has directed the staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, which he chairs, to investigate miscommunication between law enforcement agencies related to the Justice Department’s Operation Fast and Furious.A spokesperson told The Daily Caller Wednesday that Lieberman “believe[s] that the lack of interagency coordination along the border merits further examination, and as Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, he has directed his staff to follow up with the relevant federal agencies on that topic.”
OOOOOH. "Interagency coordination." Watch out Bobby, Janet and Hillary. Yer underwear is showing.
Worse for the Gunwalker Conspirators is that with the addition of Joe Lieberman to the sleuthing team, this has suddenly become a bi-partisan "witch hunt."
The Second Front has arrived, with hearings promised for the rest of the Obama presidency, however long that may be.
