Today, Congressman Blake Farenthold (TX-27) participated in the Oversight and Government Reform Committee Hearing entitled "IG Report: The Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General Examines the Failures of Operation Fast and Furious." He had the following remarks:
"The Inspector General's report confirmed what we on the Oversight Committee have known all along, Attorney General Holder has severely mismanaged the Department of Justice. The DOJ had over a year and a half to show leadership and instead led Congressional investigators on a wild goose chase for information. Now we know, those at the top of the Department who knew about Operation Fast and Furious should have informed the Attorney General and put an end to this fatally flawed operation."
