U.S. Sen. John Cornyn is set to confront U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday about allegations of a Texas-based gun-walking operation similar to the controversial Fast and Furious operation in Arizona that is linked to the 2010 murder of a U.S. border patrol agency.

Cornyn and Holder are set to meet at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where the Republican lawmaker “hopes that Attorney General Holder will finally come clean on what he knew and exactly when he knew it, and reassure him unequivocally that his department never engaged in gun-walking tactics in Texas,” said spokesman Drew Brandewie in an e-mail to The Texas Tribune.

Pish-Posh, "ol Corney is too interested in his political career to get to the lick-log with our crooked federal attorney general. Corney knows he won't get re-elected unless he can pull some big rabbits out of the hat so he won't do anything to step on any toes that could give him financial support . I'd watch to see what kind of backroom deals this RINO makes to fatten his campaign warchest.
