he knows time’s running out on his stonewalling campaign against the Congressional investigation into ATF Operation Fast & Furious, which will no doubt tie the AG to the extra-legal program, that enabled the sale of some 2000 gun store guns to Mexican drug thugs (two of which a rip crew used to murder U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry).
