WASHINGTON -- The US attorney general had better look for a good lawyer.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith yesterday called for a special counsel to investigate whether Eric Holder lied to Congress about the botched Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.
If the attorney general intentionally gave misleading testimony, he could be convicted of perjury.
In a letter to President Obama requesting a special counsel, Smith (R-Texas) said newly released Justice Department documents contradict Holder’s testimony in May that he learned of the operation only in the “last few weeks.”
Internal memos show that Holder was informed more than a year ago about Fast and Furious, in which federal agents lost track of thousands of guns sold to Mexican drug cartels.
