Holder quietly released Fast and Furious documents during election coverage

While America was busy with election forecasts on Monday night, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder quietly released more than 64,000 pages of documents pertaining to the Fast & Furious scandal, in which the Justice Department sold guns to drug cartel members, lost track of many of the guns, and arrested no one of significance.

Holder was previously held in criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to release these documents, and he still hasn't released everything. "Since these pages still do not represent the entire universe of the documents the House of Representatives is seeking related to the Justice Department's cover-up of the botched gun-walking scandal that contributed to the death of a Border Patrol agent," said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), "our court case will continue."
