while you are just an icky Republican
Move along. Move along.
On Friday evening, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich refused the congressional request for subpoenaed documents regarding Operation Fast and Furious– claiming that GOP lawmakers can’t be trusted with the information.
[I]n a letter to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), Weich suggested that sensitive information was being leaked to the media by their staffs. “While we do not know who provided these letters to reporters, we are deeply disturbed that the sensitive law-enforcement information contained in them has now entered the public realm…
So, this accusation is just another baseless slander.
No, I’m not sayin’ that the Administration leaked some trivia, themselves, so they could blame Repubs for untrustworthiness; but I wouldn’t put it past ‘em.
(That’s not my paranoia or tin-hattedness, they’ve earned that distrust.)
This public disclosure is impeding the department’s efforts to hold individuals accountable for their illegal acts,” he said.
In other words, “We gotta protect our phoney-baloney jobs, gentlemen*, by keeping the heat and focus on sacrificial subordinates.”
Therefore, Weich is denying Issa‘s and Grassley’s subpoena because of the “sensitivity” of the ongoing operation.
In other words, “We’re keeping a lid on this steaming chamber pot until after the election.”
Issa spokeswoman Becca Watkins responded Friday night, saying, “It is troubling that the attorney general continues to express the outlandish view that his compliance with lawful and binding subpoenas is merely optional.” [more]
No, it’s not “troubling.” It’s not even “outlandish.”
It’s frikkin’ outrageous !.
