Surprise! Valerie Jarrett helped cover up Fast and Furious


Poor Richard's News
25 October 2014

Sometimes those who follow politics closely erroneously assume that everyone else follows it closely as well. But for those of you who don’t, here’s a brief explanation of Fast and Furious:

It’s not just a movie series, it’s the name of an operation where the Obama administration illegally gave thousands of weapons, including military grade guns, to Mexican criminals, supposedly in an attempt to track criminal activity in Mexico. However, not only was the operation a complete failure, hundreds of Mexicans (and at least one American) were killed with these weapons. When Congressional investigators, who, by all accounts, were not aware of the operation (and did not authorize it) began investigating it, Obama claimed executive privilege in order to keep damning information about his involvement in the operation kept secret.

Keep that in mind when you read this:

From Judicial Watch:

President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious scandal, according to public records obtained by Judicial Watch.

The information is part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) “Vaughn index” detailing records about the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. JW had to sue the agency for the records after the Obama administration failed to provide them under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). A federal court ordered the DOJ to provide the records over the agency’s objections. Yesterday JW reported on the broad information in the records, including that Obama asserted executive privilege for Holder’s wife as part of the administration’s efforts to cover up the scandal.

Practically lost in the 1,000-plus pages of records is an index that shows Jarrett was brought in to manage the fact that Holder lied to Congress after the story about the disastrous gun-running operation broke in the media. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) ran the once-secret program that allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.

Why does it seem that Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s most trusted confidant, is at the center of every one of his…shall we say…indiscretions?

  1. Judicial Watch’s Fast and Furious Breakthrough
    http://patriotrising.com/2014/10/28/judicial-watchs-fast-furious-breakthrough/

    Judicial Watch has finally forced the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide a detailed listing of all the records it has withheld from Congress and the American people about the deadly Operation Fast and Furious scandal and its cover-up. The documents, as we suspected, detail the personal involvement of outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder in managing the DOJ’s media strategy and its response to congressional investigations.

    But what really stands out is the disturbing extent to which President Obama’s executive privilege claims regarding these records are a fraud and an abuse of his office. There is no precedent for Obama’s Nixonian assertion of executive privilege regarding these ordinary government agency records. The Obama administration is even withholding emails between Holder, his wife Sharon Malone, and his mother under absurd claims of executive privilege. Obama, personally and through his authority as President of the United States, asserts that Eric Holder’s wife and mother are entitled to know more about the Fast and Furious operation than the American people and the United States Congress.
