This morning on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) weighed in on the Justice Department's independent inspector general's report into Operation Fast and Furious.
"I don't care whether the Bull Moose party, the Whig Party, the Republican Party or the Democrat party sanctioned gun walking. It is wrong," he says. "I have consistently said that I have no evidence that Attorney General Holder knew about gun walking before you and I knew about about it. The question then is, should he have known about it? Is there a failure to supervise and lead within the department? And that's not a political question."
"This is bigger than politics," he adds. "It's about respect for the Department of Justice, and entity I used to work for."

Military Generals get relieved when something happens far below them. Major General Weightman was relieved for barracks issues at Aberdeen back around 2005 or 2006. He was new to the command and the problem began years before he got there. But he was relieved bcause he was now commander. Everything under him was his. If he didn't know, he should have known. Why does AG Holder get a pass?
