Sheila Jackson Lee: This F&F debacle started under Bush

posted at 3:37 pm on June 20, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

This is getting tiresome. The Right Scoop grabbed this clip of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on C-SPAN reprimanding Republicans’ investigation into deadly gunwalking scandal Fast & Furious by — yet again — chalking it up to one of President Obama’s ‘inherited’ problems.

“This Fast and Furious debacle started under the Bush administration, and it is been evidenced by various reports that it started with the ATL office in Arizona unbeknownst to leadership in Washington D.C., at least leadership that came in under the Obama administration in this instance, Eric Holder. … We have to be adults in this process, particularly when we’re trying to get to the bottom of the, of the issue of Fast and Furious. … And so I defend the general, one, on the service that he has given to this country, over decades of public service in the federal law enforcement, and the work that he is doing in the area of civil rights, in the area of federal crimes, in the area of mortgage relief, settlements that he’s brought about because of that, and the help that he has given in patent law and inventions in terms of protection, and trust. …”

On several occasions during the multiple hearings at which he’s testified, Attorney General Eric Holder has repeatedly (and smugly) tried to assuage his investigators by insisting that Operation Wide Receiver, which was implemented under the Bush administration, was the template for Operation Fast and Furious. Firstly, as Rep. Dennis Ross noted during this morning’s Oversight Committee meeting, comparing F&F and Wide Receiver is a “red herring” the DOJ is using to try and redirect blame back on the Bush administration — the tactics used in the two operations were fundamentally different. Secondly, the DOJ just retracted Holder’s statement last week that his Bush-administration predecessor had been briefed on the operation. Here’s the memo from Sen. Chuck Grassley:

Re: Second retraction of Fast and Furious Assertions

Da: Wednesday, June 20, 2012

The Justice Department has retracted a second statement made to the Senate Judiciary Committee. During a hearing last week, Attorney General Eric Holder claimed that his predecessor, then-Attorney General Michael Mukasey, had been briefed about gunwalking in Operation Wide Receiver. Now, the Department is retracting that statement and claiming Holder “inadvertently” made that claim to the Committee. The Department’s letter failed to apologize to former Attorney General Mukasey for the false accusation. This is the second major retraction the Justice Department has made in the last seven months. In December 2011, the Department retracted its claim that the ATF had not allowed illegally purchased guns to be trafficked to Mexico. Sen. Chuck Grassley’s letter and the Department’s response can be viewed here-1.

Grassley made the following comment on these developments.

“This is the second time in nearly seven months that the Department has gotten its facts wrong about gunwalking. Attorney General Holder accused Attorney General Mukasey, without producing any evidence, of having been briefed on gunwalking in Wide Receiver. The case Attorney General Mukasey was briefed on, Hernandez, is fundamentally different from both Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious since it involved cooperation with the Mexican government. Attorney General Holder’s retraction should have included an apology to the former Attorney General.

As Rep. Trey Gowdy vociferously pointed out during the Oversight meeting this morning, it doesn’t matter what party this operation came from or what other administrations have done in the past — none of that does anything to mitigate the fact that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry is dead, killed with guns that the U.S. government allowed to freely walk across the border to Mexican drug cartels. Righteousness demands that we figure out how and why this happen, regardless of whether or not AG Eric Holder has a good record on “civil rights” and “patent law.”

Heh. I think it’s safe to say that he voted “yes” on holding Eric Holder in contempt.

We found out about it, and it’s time to enact justice. If W ends up in a cell right next to his old AG, Holder, Obaka, and Great Gipper’s Ghost too, that’s not my problem, that’s part of the problem solved.

tomshup on June 20, 2012 at 3:49 PM

You can blame Tom Delay for that one. IIRC, there were 3-5 congressional districts and several of them were equally matched. Delay wanted to make most of them go for the Repubs so he he gerrymanded the lines. In order to make that happen, he had to create one really liberal district. In steps SJL and the rest is history.

At today’s hearings he said of Wide Receiver, that it was the ‘genesis’ of all the ‘bad ideas’ to be found in F&F.
He did not appear smug when saying that.

Sheila Jackson-Lee is the perfect example of why there should be a literacy test in the English language only, not only for voters but for those running for office. This woman spouts her hatred constantly with no facts to back her accusations and expects not to be called on her lies or she will call you a racist. As it stands the inmates are running the asylum, and that tells us why the country is in the shape it’s in today.

I had no idea blaming a previous administration was such an effective strategy. Someone should have told Bush, 9 months into his presidency, that he could have simply blamed 8 years of Clinton for 9/11!

sandspur on June 20, 2012 at 4:21 PM

You can keep blaming Delay all you want but the fact is if so much as a block of her district carves out a single minority she gets to scream discrimination and violations of the voting rights act. We have several carved out districts just like hers in Texas and don’t tell me others across the nation don’t as well. I will bet she took 80% in her last race and that was because the guy that ran against her actually spent money and campaigned hard in a year that saw dems get pasted. The rest of them did better than 85%

Just keep the dems out of power and these idiots are as harmless as whipped dogs. Give ‘em power and…well we see what happens don’t we?

btw, everyone of these SJL like dems around here are on record voting for the Cap and Trade bill in 2009 and almost none of their constituents knows it.

DanMan on June 20, 2012 at 4:27 PM

the Department is retracting that statement and claiming Holder “inadvertently” made that claim to the Committee.

How do you “inadvertently” make $hit up? Did Holder mean to make up a story about some other point and accidentally fabricate this one instead?

If F&F is all Bush’s fault, they why is the Obama White House trying to hide the records? They’ve never had any problem airing their predecessor’s dirty laundry before. Bush and the GOP are big enough to take it, Mr. President. Stop stonewalling.

DanMan on June 20, 2012 at 4:40 PM

Lies, obfuscation, and distraction are being used in lieu of any legitimate defense of Eric Holder. That is because there is none.

With the invocation of executive privilege, there has now been a de facto admission by Barack Obama that he was involved with Fast and Furious. Otherwise that privilege was improperly asserted.

If this went no higher than the AG, I’m pretty sure that Obama would have asked Eric Holder to give a speech about spending more time with his family and thereafter submit his resignation. It sure seems that Obama is involved in something that is arguably worse than Watergate. Boehner should and I believe will be a pariah in the GOP if he shuts this thing down.

Socratease on June 20, 2012 at 4:27 PM

I was wondering exactly the same thing. If it was something Obama’s administration “inherited” from Bush, then there should be no need to hide the documents under Executive Privilege. Why not just air them and show that it was all a Bush screw up and his administration is innocent?

If that were true though, then why didn’t Holder or Obama shut the operation down, if they knew it was crap and an inherited operation from Bush’s administration?

And let’s assume for a moment that he did inherit the operation as currently conducted under F&F from the Bush DoJ. Meanwhile, he is out on the campaign trail repeatedly saying “we can’t go back to the failed policies of Bush”. And yet his administration, with no need for Congressional intervention, could have shut down this particular “failed policy of the Bush administration”, and they didn’t do it. Kinda puts a hole in his “failed policies” argument.

Ya know why SJL says this sort of stuff? It works.

The facts can be there, clear as day, and Sheila walks out and says, “Noooo, it’s like thiiis.” And the people in her district believe every word of it.

She says it because the “truth” that comes from her mouth trumps all other “truths” and that’s that. And once she’s said something that becomes the definitive version of that story.

It’s perverse beyond comprehension.

As one Republican committee member after another pointed out in today’s House Oversight Committee debate, Holder dumped tons of documents related to Operation Wide Receiver onto to the Committee, and only a smidgen (the word used by one member) related to Fast & Furious. And that’s what the Committee vote to report to the House that he is in contempt of Congress was all about.

So it’s obvious she knows she’s lying, but since she will never pay a political price (or any other price) for her lies, why on earth would she stop stonewalling?

At the very least, this is the best argument going forward to all our leftist friends and family (I know I have some, I bet you all do too) when they throw the tired old “Bush’s fault!!!” card.

Do they actually send SJL out to spout her craziness or do they just let her do her thang?

I suppose you’d have to consider whether Grayson from Fl or McKinney from GA ever needed “Marching Orders” for their nuttiness.

Whenever the project started, the really bad stuff happened when Obama and his appointees were in daily control of things. If the project was so awful, why didn’t Holder shut it down his first day in office?

If she would just stop acting smart. Completely partisan, zero integrity, useless.

Facts just get in the way for Rep. Jackson-Lee. She’s first and foremost about race. That’s an obvious fact and evidenced by her many statements in public on a variety of issues. Secondly, she is all about the Democratic party. Whatever they do or say she agrees with 100%. Again, as evidenced by her track record. Rational, independent thought is not in her DNA.

She has to be the most stupid person in Texas. Of course, her constituents must be dumber than a box of rocks to keep voting her in. I’d be ashamed.

OK OK – She’s not in my district but yes we are ashamed!

To quote the CongressWOMANNNN!

Muss I die, muss my chirens die? Oysterpersons, and the ever famous What about the vunabuls?

Check out Michael Berry on the local clear channel or i-heart for 740 am in Houston 8-10a and 5-7p I think.

He tears her up all day long and it is funny! (except that it is true and so very sad).
