ATF Fast and Furious: New documents show Attorney General Eric Holder was briefed in July 2010
WASHINGTON - New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General
Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious
operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his
statement to Congress.
On May 3, 2011, Holder told a Judiciary Committee hearing,
"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."
internal Justice Department documents show that at least ten months
before that hearing, Holder began receiving frequent memos discussing
Fast and Furious. (Source CBS)
