WASHINGTON, March 8, 2018.   – Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcement is that the Justice Department will file suit against the State of California for its so-called “sanctuary laws.”  Those laws prohibiting state authorities and businesses from cooperating with federal officials charged with enforcing the nation’s immigration laws.

Eric Holder for the defense

Little reported is the fact that the law firm Covington & Burling, of which former Attorney General Eric Holder is a partner, receives roughly $25,000 a month in legal fees from California taxpayers for defending the state’s sanctuary proclivities.

The firm is fighting to uphold the Golden State’s attempts to forge an immigration policy separate and distinct from those mandated by Congress.

But flouting the law is nothing new to Eric Holder.

In fact, it was the will of the House of Representatives for Holder to be held in “contempt of Congress.”

Holder’s charge is for refusing to surrender all pertinent Justice Department documents concerning the Obama administration’s sale of nearly 2,000 weapons to Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel.

A sale of guns that meant the deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens and US. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Obama Administration blocks inspectors general, independent oversight 

 Holder’s contempt citation followed closely on the heels of President Obama’s evoking Executive Privilege.  Obama’s claim was that the disclosing of Operation Fast and Furious documents to Congress would violate the separation of powers between the Executive and Legislative branches.

Will we see the Fast and Furious Documents?

Wednesday, along with the Justice Department’s announced court challenge to California’s secessionist sanctuary policies, it said it would end its six-year battle with Congress and enter

“into a conditional settlement agreement with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and will begin to produce additional documents related to Operation Fast and Furious.”

Attorney General Session said:

“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”

Collusion between the Obama Administration and the “El Chapo” cartel

The question is whether Justice Department “transparency” includes making public a secret understanding between the Obama administration and Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán’s Sinaloa cartel goons.

Back in 2011, one such Sinaloa worthy, Jesus Vincente Zambada-Niebla, asserted through his attorneys in a U.S. District Court:

“Weapons received by Sinaloa Cartel members and its leaders in Operation Fast & Furious were provided under the agreement entered into between the United States government and … the documentation will also provide evidence showing that the United States government has a policy and pattern of providing benefits, including immunity, to cartel leaders … who are willing to provide information against rival drug cartels.”

It’s time to shine the light on Eric Holder, Barack Obama

Attorney General Sessions owes it to the families of the slain victims of Operation Fast and Furious to reveal President Obama and the contemptible Eric Holder’s secret agreement with El Chapo’s drug gang.

Drugs, drugs, drugs

It’s well known the Obama administration was prone to looking the other way when it came to drugs entering the United States. It intervened to nix a Drug Enforcement Administration investigation into U.S. cocaine smuggling by Islamic terrorist organization Hezbollah.

As a result, tons of cocaine was allowed to enter the U.S. as part of a quid pro quo agreement to “seal a nuclear deal with Iran,” says Newsweek.

It’s clear Hezbollah’s drug-dealing miscreants were the key to creating a diplomatic back channel to Iran’s ruling miscreants.

If American cities became overrun with drugs in order to achieve an agreement assuring Iran’s development of nuclear weapons, so be it.

Lives, especially American lives, are cheap to Barack Obama and Eric Holder, provided all the bloodletting aids in diminishing America at home and abroad.
