Breaking Video: CNN Asks Relevant Question about Fast and Furious

This exchange is very significant for multiple reasons. First, CNN has stumbled onto a relevant point with respect to Fast and Furious, one that those of us who have been following for a while now, have been demanding be answered. Attorney General Eric Holder said on May 3rd that the first time he learned about Fast and Furious was 'a few weeks' earlier. However, while in Mexico around March 22nd, Barack Obama discussed the operation with at least two separate interviewers (CNN and Univision). Extending Holder a full helping of grace means that he doesn't know the difference between 'few' and 'several.'

The second reason this is important has to do with questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) at that May 3rd hearing. Chaffetz asked Holder if he knew about Fast and Furious before Obama did. Holder answered in the affirmative (video at bottom).

The third reason this becomes significant is the response of the man CNN's John King is interviewing. It is Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who is the ranking member of Darrell Issa's House Oversight committee. Cummings looks like a deer in the headlights when asked to explain the disparity and eventually concedes that they need to get to the bottom of it. If Holder and Obama somehow lose Cummings, it will be huge. Consider, though, that Cummings is registered with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) caucus so he is accustomed to lying without conscience. Nonetheless, he could be about to break. A primary challenge would help tremendously.
