Oh Brother… Holder Claims He Did Not Understand THIS Question, “When Did You First Learn About Fast and Furious?” (Video)

According to reports last night Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath about Fast and Furious during testimony to Congress. On May 3, 2011, while under oath, Holder told a Congressional committee, “”I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” But, new emails prove he was notified about Fast and Furious back in July 2010.

Today, the Obama Justice Department claimed Eric Holder did not understand the question:

The Justice Department told CBS News… Holder misunderstood that question from the committee – he did know about Fast and Furious – just not the details.

Here’s the question:

    If he has a hard time understanding things, he shouldn’t be Attorney General….liar!


    Just like Timmy ‘The Tax Cheat’ Geithner…all is forgiven, nothing to see here, just move along.

  • vityas

    Another example of Affirmative Action in action.
    If he’s too stupid to understand that question, he’s too stupid to graduate from grade school.

  • FedUp

    Holder joins Timmy “Turbo Tax” as one of the most incompetent people holding office that impacts us all. They should both be impeached, if not put in jail!

    So why are we paying Eric Holder to head the DOJ? Either he is really this STUPID and LAZY or just one nefarious evil con man to subvert this country. I blamed the repub-rinos voting to confirmed this guy.

    What a pathetic POS.

  • Kate

    If he is that freakin’ stupid, kick him out now. Of course, why is anyone surprised? He’s as “brilliant” and corrupt as Obama. Birds of a feather…..

  • spike

    Well, it depends on what your definition of “learn” is.

    So Eric Holder knew that US guns were sold to Mexico before but he just doubled it down. Eric Holder and his henchmen are in complicit with criminal enterprise to armed drug cartels that resulted to hundred mexican dead, Terry’s death and the the descend of looming overthrow of Mexican government by drug cartels to raise the ante for gun control. Do we have jail big enough for these guys?

  • AuntieMadder

    Oh, well, that explains it.

  • Terry Gain

    This is just his latest lie. If he didn’t understand the question then he’s too stupid for the job.

    Lets just be honest. In the 1960’s we established civil rights laws and along with them, we also established affirmative action, set aside programs and quotas to give minorities a chance to advance in our society.

    Some minorities took advantage of those programs and they made something of them selves. God bless them!

    Other minorities took advantage of those programs only to use them to skate around being honorable, responsible and diligent.

    Obama and his wife, Holder, Valerie Jarrett, and their ilk belong to the latter group. These people never developed character. Instead they just worked the system to the detriment of the people that tried to help them.

    Yet another unintended consequence of misguided social engineering programs.

    Hiding Holder’s true intentions (article was written in 2010

    During his confirmation more than a year ago, Attorney General Eric Holder failed to notify lawmakers he had contributed to a legal brief dealing with the use of federal courts in fighting terrorism, the Justice Department acknowledged on Wednesday.

    Clearly this is subterfuge, an effort to hide Holder’s risky and dangerous views from public scrutiny. This was a brief which exposes Holder’s (and Obama’s and John Brennan’s) views that they could dial back our reaction to terrorist threats used under the Bush admininstration. It explains completely why the terrorist investigations into Major Hasan were suspiciously and abruptly shut down before the true nature of the man was discovered. After all, he was an American citizen talking about Jihad and killing soldiers with another American citizen now in Yemen and tied to al Qaeda and 9-11.

    In the twisted and limited views of liberals that is called free speech. I guess bombing civilians is also an admirable expression of political views.

    The brief also explains the totally bizarre and reckless act of suspending interrogations of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and providing him the right to remain silent and a lawyer – even though he is not an American citizen! An act that could have allowed other al Qaeda killers to sneak by our defenses. It was this same extension of American rights to foreign threats inside our borders that allowed the 9-11 high jackers to ‘disappear’ from intelligence monitoring and kill 3,000 people.

    Seems Holder has some devious bias issues. And NOT the good kind.

    He has flown under the radar just like his boss.

  • Patty

    He seems to be having a senior moment. He isn’t that old. And more excuses and way and dodge and lies and complete disrespect and disregard for our National Security.

    Some heads must roll. But I personally don’t believe they ever will as long as Holder has the same advisers as Obama has and has the same lame stream media as Obama has and haves.

  • Patty

  • gus
