More on Sari Horwitz, Holder's Heralding Harlot. What she didn't tell you about the Issa briefing.

As I posted below, "The Empire Strikes Back through their lapdog media. Sari Horwitz, the most politically-reliable Pravda plagiarist the anti-firearm rights crowd has."

Phineas Fahrquar also commented on the "smear campaign against Rep. Darrell Issa."

At issue is the "big news," now being blasted across the left-collectivist blogosphere, that Darrell Issa and his staffers were allegedly fully briefed on Fast and Furious about a year ago and thus are now being hypocritical in their criticism of the DOJ program and cover-up.

Here's what the self-admitted plagiarist Sari Horwitz and her partners in pharaonic scribery wrote in Pravda on the Potomac:

A chief Republican critic of a controversial U.S. anti-gun-trafficking operation was briefed on ATF’s “Fast and Furious” program last year and did not express any opposition, sources familiar with the classified briefing said Tuesday.

Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.), who has repeatedly called for top Justice Department officials to be held accountable for the now-defunct operation, was given highly specific information about it at an April 2010 briefing, the sources said. Members of his staff also attended the session, which Issa and two other Republican congressmen had requested.

Here's what Horwitz didn't tell you, from a long-time DC observer's email to me on the subject:

one point -- all the congressional folks who received that briefing had to sign confidentiality agreements as a condition for getting the briefing... Issa et al have not mentioned it, so guess where the info for WaPo had to have come from...

from the briefers, or those who sent them, of course...

So if Issa wanted to defend himself by publicly stating a different recollection of what happened in the briefing, he would be breaking the confidentiality agreement. The cowardly anonymous conspirators hiding behind Ms. Horwitz's willing skirts have no such compunction, obviously.

If this corrupt administration is willing to reveal that Issa attended a confidential briefing, then Issa could publicize his side using anonymous sources as well.

It would be a damned shame if a doc dump happened...

My guess is that will happen sooner rather than later. Issa has got to be pissing premium grade gasoline by now.

These administration hacks are just lighting matches and tossing them closer and closer...

The other key point is that if such a briefing was given to Issa and his staff - who gave it? The people who now say they never heard of it?

The Administration, its enablers and its sycophants, are going to have a serious and extremely painful reckoning. What they have done, in the name of their ideology, is nothing short of grossly immoral. Justice will be served.

Years from now, when "Gunwalker" is looked at through the prism of history, the program will make Watergate, Waco and Iran-Contra look like nothing more than minor footnotes in the history of our republic.

Mike and David, our country is deeply in your debt and I thank you for your tenacity and your courage.

Does anyone know if there's a (perhaps matrimonial) link between Sari Horwitz and CSGV's Josh "El Guapo" Horwitz?

Geographically, it's a match that makes sense.

Ideologically, it's a match that pretty clearly makes sense.

Ethically, a match between an intellectual property thief, and a conspirator in the attempted theft of fundamental human rights, would be--if not a match made in heaven--at least a match that makes sense.

Here's an interesting response in the comments section of the Washington Post story...

" There seems to be an eagerness among WP readers to actually see this story as credible. To brief Congress on sensitive activities, the information divulged and the permission to divulge it comes from the top. Apparently, some readers of the WP are so ideologically blinded as to be oblivious to the glaring flaws in logic this "scoop" presents. Are we really to believe that low level - or mid level - personnel at DOJ briefed Congress on a program that Eric Holder had no knowledge of? Who could be foolish enough to believe that? At least Mrs. Horwitz will have learned from this attempt that really good lies take longer than a day to debunk. But then again, after coming back fresh from a three month suspension for plagarism, Mrs. Horwitz is understandably a little rusty at her craft."


CowboyDan said...

Is her knowing and sharing this a violation of law?

I believe sources who are promised anonymity can expect journalists to keep their mouths shut, but when it's knowledge obtained by a criminal act, is it still covered? Maybe the info is covered; I wouldn't imagine the crime of divulging the facts would be covered.

If she has to sit in jail for a few days, she may have time to think.

Sounds like it might be time to hire a special prosecutor. I would not hold anything back with this criminal conspiracy. This is not a legitimate government.

These people are accessories to murder. They provided weapons knowing they were going to be used in the commission of crimes. That makes them accessories. You can't change "Crime" to "Policy" and just walk away from this.

This whole situation makes me wonder about the BP Disaster. They wanted to shut down drilling and that happened? They want to infringe on the second amendment and Gabrielle Giffords and this happen? It is like Reichstag Fires being set. What are they planning for right before the election? Obama is a textbook sociopath. He has no conscience. Nothing is beyond him. Think of him as Jim Jones of The Peoples Temple. He was not a reverend. He had many ties to the Democratic Party. He joined the CPUSA at 21, and was an atheist. He only used his Reverend title for tax purposes. He took 900 people to their deaths. Obama is doing the same with America.

Issa should now subpoena the individuals who briefed him (allegedly) - and force them to give up Holder and Napolitano.

AntiCitizenOne said...

who thinks we should hire Lulzsec to pre-emptively grab the documents in case the rats are thinking about a document dump?

Dedicated_Dad said...

Seems like "sari" is going to be SORRY before this is over.

As someone else said, how could DOJ approve confidential briefing of CONgress if nobody in DOJ management knew about it?

Anonymous said...

Granted, there are bigger fish to fry, like the ATF on up at the moment... but if this is allegation is true, then doesn't that mean that Issa technically gave them tacit permission to continue onward himself?

It's not shocking to find out that politicians are as two-faced as you can get, but this makes me look at Issa in a significantly different light, and, once again assuming this is true, if I were in his district, I would be considering drumming up support to get his ass punted.

No they are part of a Marxist conspiracy and have deliberately misdirected the population into believing that they are the Democratic party, while they are in fact, the Marxist party.

Think of it as if there was a large American flag, deliberately placed over a picture of Stalin and the hammer and sickle symbol, which occasionally catches the wind enough, that you can see under the flag. But no one reports it because it's their job, not to report it.

Tremendous blog and coverage; I've trumpeted your site (via Twitter @Savage_Sideshow)and that of David Codrea for a number of months. You folks deserve a Pulitzer for your courage and investigative reporting. I sent references of your work to Beck, Levin, Tammy Bruce, Anne Coulter and Michelle Malkin. Thanks for your hard work in exposing the truth. IMHO this is bigger than Watergate and many bad players should twist in the wind.

Pericles : not only who gave the alleged briefing but who authorized it and what specifically was briefed. That knowledge would go a long way to determining the who knew what when issue.
Anonymous @21:17 - it is incumbant on whoever claims (or at least implies) that Issa was 'linked' to the gunwalker portion of OP F&F to show a causal link. Him getting what was probably (at best) a general overview briefing ie we're going after illegal gun sales/transportation rather than specific tactics used (strawman purchases et al) are 2 different things. Why would Issa be holding these hearings IF he had foreknowledge? Someone would find out.
