Kent Terry lost his brother Brian to operation “Fast and Furious.” Now he’s lashing out at Rep. Jerry Nadler for changing his stance on holding those in charge of the operation accountable.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives was responsible for the scandal that resulted when “Fast and Furious” turned out to be a failure. The operation involved allowing the illegal sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels in the hopes that they could be traced back to other cartel associates.
Everything fell apart when two of the guns sold under the program were found at the crime scene where Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered.
However instead of admitting his failures, the Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder refused to release documentation to Congress in order to shield his shortcomings.
At that time Nadler called the idea of bringing contempt charges against an acting attorney general “shameful” and “politically motivate.”
Which is a far cry from Nadler’s current stance where he is leading the charge against President Trump’s Attorney General William Barr.
Kent Terry slammed Nadler for the the change of heart while speaking on “Fox & Friends,” and even said that Barr current efforts were a “hoax”.
“I kind of chuckled. Because this one is a complete hoax here what Nadler is going after. Remember, Nadler and them turned their back on my brother back in — a few years ago — to protect Eric Holder. They walked out holding hands. They turned their back on an American hero to protect Eric Holder. It’s sickening. It’s sad that they’re dishonoring my brother that way,” Terry lamented.
This is just more evidence that Democrats latest actions are all partisan moves to hurt President Trump and his administration.
