Holder Begs Court to Stop Document Release on #FastandFurious
[BigG]Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch.

It's ironic that one of bronco bama's executive orders states "the DOJ will release a report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement".
Are they really gonna turn themselves in?
