Lying under oath may not be a crime for a politician. The natural defense is that when you lie for a living, telling a whopper is simply normal and natural.
However that defense strategy may make sense to Attorney General Eric Holder, it doesn’t wash with anyone outside of the beltway.
Slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry died at the hands of Mexican Cartel members who wielded Holder’s guns. So did a LOT of innocent Mexican citizens inside Mexico and who knows how many citizens inside of the United States?
It’s the ultimate in hubris for the Attorney General of the United States to sit before Congress and LIE for the sake of his own skin and that of his boss, President Obama.

However, Attkisson reported on Twitter yesterday: @SharylAttkisson Don’t worry! Nobody is being silenced.
