...To understand this abuse of power, it helps to go back to July 2011, when DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz was appointed.Sally Yates is Holder's co-conspirator here.
From the very start, Horowitz found his duties throttled by Attorney General Eric Holder, who placed limitations on the inspector general’s right to have unobstructed access to information. Holder used this tactic to delay Horowitz’s investigation of the failed sting operation known as Operation Fast and Furious.
“We got access to information up to 2010 in all of these categories. No law changed in 2010. No policy changed. … It was simply a decision by the General Counsel’s Office in 2010 that they viewed, now, the law differently....
Obama, another co-conspirator, did not remedy Horowitz' complaint until December of '16, just before he left office. THAT is why Spygate went so well for the seditionists (? Traitors??) of the Obama era.
