You know, I-- I've lost confidence in the attorney general a long time ago over his cover-up over the fast and furious investigation. And the bogus claim of executive privilege when Congress tried to get to the bottom of that, which in part resulted in him being the first attorney general held in contempt of Congress. I think it's past time for him to go and for the President to appoint somebody who the public can have confidence in.
I was struck by Cornyn inserting the Fast and Furious operation into his answer because it’s not the first time I’ve noticed a Republican, questioned about one of the Administration’s current problems, bringing up Fast and Furious. I hadn’t really been paying attention - although I will going forward hence the title of this post - so I can’t cite previous instances but it always seems to be done in passing. I don’t know what it means, if anything, but it’s an interesting way to keep an old, presumably dead scandal in front of the public.
