Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to face a congressional subcommittee to delve deeper into his knowledge of the "Fast and Furious" gun operation.
Holder will appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 8. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), a Judiciary Committee member and head of the House Oversight Committee, issued Holder a subpoena to appear, to explain when he was aware of ATF's operation.
Holder initially testified, in May, that he only first heard about Fast and Furious a few weeks before. Earlier this month, CBS News reported that documents and memos indicate Holder had been sent multiple briefings mentioning Fast and Furious in 2010.
Holder later explained in a letter to Congress that he didn't read those memos, and that nobody at the Justice Department who knew of Fast and Furious was aware of the specific "gunwalking" tactics used.

This guys isn't going anywhere until after November of 2012, and even then if we don't vote responsibly he may be back for four more years. This Chicago style of government is so corrupt it's almost unexplainable. Not the USA I admired all of my life that's for sure. Be safe.

So holder "agrees" to testify? How considerate of him to take the time from his busy schedule to respond to a congressional subpeona. Get the new book "Injustice" by J. Christian Adams, the former DOJ attorney that was in charge of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case, to see just what a racist cesspool holder and obama have turned that once respected agency into. Then decide if anything he says, whether under oath or not, can be believed.
