A scathing GOP report blasts the ATF over its Fast & Furious gun program in Mexico. The Justice Department fires back. Anderson Cooper talked about the uproar with Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a member of the House Oversight Committee. He says both the ATF and DoJ are responsible.
U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry's family spoke out to Anderson Cooper exclusively about the Justice Department's recent unsealing of indictments in the shootout that resulted in his death. They also react to the government investigation into the "Fast and Furious" ATF operation.
We have an exclusive interview tonight with the mother and cousin of murdered U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry, who was killed in connection with the disputed ATF gunning-running investigation known as "Operation Fast and Furious."
On Monday, 12 days after the U.S. House held Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to release documents related to the operation, an indictment was unsealed in federal court that charges five men in the 2010 death of Agent Terry.
The FBI is offering up to $1 million for information leading to the arrest of four of the accused, who are believed to be in Mexico. The fifth suspect is already in custody.
Keeping them Honest, there are questions about why the Justice Department waited eight months to go public with the indictments.
Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to give more documents to a House committee investigating Fast and Furious. President Obama invokes executive privilege, and the committee votes that Holder be cited for contempt of Congress. Anderson Cooper is Keeping Them Honest.
Rep. Gowdy says Pres. Obama shouldn't use executive privilege to withhold "Fast and Furious" documents because he had no role in the botched operation.
Jeffrey Toobin says executive privilege is about protecting internal deliberations inside the executive branch. The President needs to be able to consider policy options with his advisors without worrying they will be subpoenaed to disclose what they discussed.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
