Justice obstructed

The headlines say it all:

Los Angeles Times: Emails show top Justice Department officials knew of ATF gun program
The Washington Times: Memo: Holder knew of ‘Fast and Furious’ as early as July 2010
...and many, many more just like these...

CBS released this report:

And more details from Fox were released about Holder’s knowledge:

As Bryan Preston recounts at Pajamas Media, “Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA), who has led the congressional inquiry into Fast and Furious, has also brought up the “perjury” word concerning Holder’s testimony before Congress as to when he knew about the operation. His recollection stands at direct odds with hard evidence. Holder’s only defense now is that he doesn’t read the memos sent to him, and didn’t understand a very simple question about dates posed to him under oath. So, the US attorney general’s best defense is incompetence. While that defense would be more than believable given his tenure so far, it’s not one that should allow him to keep his job.” I’d contend perjury and obstruction of justice at the very least.
