Fast & Furious: AG Holder caught in perjury?
CBS News has the story. Holder was sent briefing papers on it in July of last year, but in May of this year testified that he;d only heard about it "for the first time over the last few weeks."
The July 2010 brief devotes a paragraph to F&F on p. 7. To be fair, it doesn't mention government gun-running.
October 2010 emails show Deputy Ass't AG Jason Weinstein noting, "It's a tricky case given the number of guns that have walked." James Trusty, head of DoJ's Organized Crime and Gang Section, replies, "It's not going to be any big surprise that a bunch of US guns are being used in MX, so I'm not sure how much grief we get for 'gun walking."
