Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally approved the release of internal documents related to the infamous Fast & Furious gun-walking program at the hands of the ATF.
Up to now, the Obama administration, both under Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, blocked their release.
The most likely reason is obvious: the truth of how and why Obama’s cadre pushed the program was covered up despite the death of a US Border Patrol agent at the hands of one of the guns pedaled by the ATF, the trigger of which was pulled by an illegal alien.
If the DOJ can manage to peel away from self-defense mode long enough to comply with the order, we may have even more evidence of ’embarrassing scandals’ under Obama, despite his claims to the contrary.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has approved the release of documents related to the 2009 Obama-era gun-running program, Operation Fast and Furious.
In a statement from the Department of Justice, A.G. Sessions said, “The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”
Townhall’s Katie Pavlich revisited one of the first and most notorious scandals of the acclaimed “scandal-free” Obama administration.
“We need to find out the truth, exactly what happened, how it happened, why it happened. We need Mr. Trump, President Trump, to unseal the documents, reverse executive privilege so that we know what happened, and that we can hold the people accountable that are responsible,” Kent Terry said.
Terry was murdered by Mexican cartel rip crew members in December 2010. They were carrying guns illegally trafficked by ATF to Mexico through the Fast and Furious program.
