Senate Judiciary Committee Oversight Hearing with Attorney General Eric Holder, Nov. 8, 2011

“One-Sided Outrage”

Senator Schumer: “What I am getting at here, and why I think it’s important to have answers to this question, is because there’s been a selective way in which this investigation has been pursued so far.  It’s sort of one-sided outrage about the whole issue, when we know now that it began, or its progenitor began, before you took office, before President Obama took office.”

FACT

As early as March 2011, Senator Grassley’s staff sought information on Operation Wide Receiver from a gun dealer involved in the operation.  On September 28, 2011—before the Justice Department had produced any documents related to Operation Wide Receiver—Senator Grassley’s staff requested briefings on other cross-border events, which it is now clear included Operation Wide Receiver and the Hernandez investigation.  The Justice Department indicated on September 30 that it would not be “planning additional briefings on other matters at this time.”

Documents supporting the FACTS.
