Progress on ‘Fast & Furious’

Judge denies Holder’s request to dismiss the scandal.

FRC’s Tony Perkins: “Unless you have a scandal chart you might have forgotten one of the earlier scandals of the Obama Administration, Fast and Furious. … Monday the U.S. District Court in D.C. denied the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the case. That ruling will now likely go on appeal to the D.C. Circuit federal appellate court. Assuming that the appeals court upholds the lower court’s ruling and the case goes forward, FRC’s Ken Klukowski – one of only a handful of lawyers who has published a scholarly work on executive privilege – says that if the court later rules on the merits of the executive-privilege claim, it is ‘close to a slam dunk’ that Holder will lose. This is yet another example of the Obama administration refusing to follow the rule of law that all government officers – and especially the President and his attorney general – are sworn to uphold.”
