Arizona sheriff says Eric Holder, the DoJ, and the ATF are accomplices to murder

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Pinal county Sheriff Paul Babeu flat-out says Attorney General Eric Holder and members of subordinate federal law-enforcement agencies are criminally liable for their roles in Operation Fast and Furious:

Sheriff Babeu has a point. I’m no expert in the law, but, at the least, it seems we have a case of “accessory before the fact:”

A person who aids, abets, or encourages another to commit a crime but who is not present at the scene. An accessory before the fact, like an accomplice, may be held criminally liable to the same extent as the principal. Many jurisdictions refer to an accessory before the fact as an accomplice.

This scandal cries out for a special prosecutor. But, if one is not appointed, then state and county agencies should investigate whatever falls under their jurisdiction and prosecute as needed. Meanwhile, Congress must continue its investigation to bring out the full federal role in this fiasco, including, if warranted, the impeachment of Eric Holder. Over 200 people have died from “walked” guns, and the idiots who facilitated it must be held to account.

Remember, Rep. Darrell Issa’s famous description of Gunwalker as “felony stupid” includes the word “felony.”

O’Reilly was involved in communications about a program that, probably illegally, provided guns (and other weapons) to vicious criminal gangs in Mexico, arguably an act of war. Over 300 Mexicans and at least one, perhaps two, US federal agents have been killed with these weapons. “Walked” firearms are showing up at crime scenes in the United States. Executive privilege doesn’t cover being an accessory to murder. […]
