DOJ Unleashes More Documents on Operation Fast & Furious

On Wednesday the U.S. Department of Justice announced it will release new documents on former President Obama’s corrupt operation “Fast and Furious” where his administration sold “military-style weapons” to Mexican drug cartels.

These same guns were used by the cartels to kill American citizens.

The DOJ announced in a statement:

Today, the Department of Justice entered into a conditional settlement agreement with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and will begin to produce additional documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. The conditional settlement agreement, filed in federal court in Washington D.C., would end six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce documents requested by the Committee.

“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”

Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of court after refusing to had over specific documents to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee related to the operation, back in 2012.

US Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was shot and killed by one of these guns the Obama administration sold to Mexican cartels.

Brian’s brother, Kent, said during a Fox & Friends interview, “We need to find out the truth, exactly what happened, how it happened, why it happened. We need Mr. Trump, President Trump, to unseal the documents, reverse executive privilege so that we know what happened, and that we can hold the people accountable that are responsible.”
