Kirsters Baish| There was a laundry list of scandals that took place during the era of the Obama administration, but the mainstream media always seemed to turn the other cheek. Obama is actually going around to this day saying that his administration wasn’t a part of any scandals. The mainstream media is still giving him a pass. There were four scandals going on within the EPA alone during his presidency. We all know about the IRS scandal on top of that. Then there was the VA scandal and the DOJ scandal, and we cannot forget Benghazi. Those are just a few of the Obama era scandals, but he still claims that none existed while he was in office. The man is a blatant liar.
Obama wasn’t just responsible for a lot of scandals, but some of those scandals involved the loss of American lives. Fast and Furious was one of those scandals that cost American lives, and we still don’t know exactly what occurred.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Wednesday that there was a huge development.
The Daily Caller reported that the Department of Justice announced on Wednesday that they would be giving documents related to the Fast and Furious gun scandal to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Former President Barack Obama and his former Attorney General, Eric Holder, refused to give up requested documents in the past. These documents were called “critical” to the investigation by Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Wednesday that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will provide documents to Congress on the Obama-era program dubbed “Fast and Furious” that allowed criminals to purchase guns in Phoenix-based gun shops in order to track them into Mexico.
The Justice Department, then run by Eric Holder, declined to provide documents on the program to Congress in 2012 and was held in contempt of Congress. Today’s decision ends six years of litigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
During a press release, Attorney General Sessions stated, “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.”
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives operation was outed in 2010 when two guns were found at United States Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder scene.
There were some seriously nefarious things going on within our government during the Obama era. Thankfully, we now have a president who puts Americans first and doesn’t put himself in the middle of scandal after scandal as our last Commander in Chief did.
