Why is Session's DOJ trying to cover up Fast and Furious?

Courthouse NewsA federal judge tore into the government Monday for trying to vacate court orders that denied privilege over records on the botched gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious.

“The fact that this unique dispute involving the production of a specific set of records … has been resolved does not diminish the importance of the fundamental legal questions that arose along the way,” U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson wrote. “And the parties have not articulated any reason why the court’s opinions on those broad subjects – which were shaped by its consideration of the thorough briefing and skilled argument by both sides – should simply evaporate.”

Together with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which initiated the underlying lawsuit, Attorney General Jeff Sessions had fought to vacate orders in the case from 2014 and 2016 on the basis that the dispute has been mooted in March by a settlement.

Either DOJ officials are doing this without properly informing Sessions, or Sessions is now complicit in the Fast and Furious coverup.
