Slain Border Agent’s Brother Thanks Trump, Slams Holder: AG Jeff Sessions Needs to Restore DOJ
The following article appeared in
Breitbart on March 9th
By Michelle Moons
Terry, brother to slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, called for Attorney
General Jeff Sessions to restore the justice system while lauding President
Trump for his administration’s campaign promise kept to “open up the books” on
his brother’s death.
Terry told Fox News on Friday
morning, “As you can see we were a little emotionally relieved yesterday. It’s
been a long road for us of being lied to and misled.” He said after yesterday
they’re “heading in the right direction.”
Agent Brian Terry was killed
in December 2010 by a seven-times deported illegal alien who shot Terry with a
gun from the Obama-era “Fast and Furious” gun-walking program. Then-Attorney
General Eric Holder was later held in contempt of congress for withholding
government documents related to the scandalous program.
On Wednesday the Department of
Justice announced that it had entered into a “conditional
settlement agreement with the House Committee on Oversight and Government
Reform and will begin to produce additional documents related to Operation Fast
Terry was asked in the Friday Fox
interview if anyone has reached out to him since news broke of the new document
release. He said that Rep. Darrell Issa reached out to Terry’s mother on
Thursday and that she was told that others in the DOJ would be reaching out to
He was asked about the new Trump
administration and the decision to turn over the documents.
“First of all, I want to thank
President Trump for what he’s done,” said Terry. “We’ve come a long ways with
Trump. I think he’s on the right ball, going down the right road with
“Mr. Sessions needs to restore the
justice system that [former Attorney General Eric] Holder messed up,” he added.
Terry was asked about Holder’s
promises to him and his family to get justice for the family.
“[Holder] told us that he would hold
those responsible accountable, which we found out he was involved in it, so
how’s the DOJ going to protect…investigate themselves? That was very upsetting
to us, he did that.
“Then to find out that they were
talking about wiretapping our family, calling us a nuisance because we wanted
answers, and some other stuff they said along the way.
Creators, facilitators of "Fast and Furious"
Terry said that Sessions has shown
them that “he is headed in the right direction and maybe he will restore the
justice system that America needs.”
Asked whether he thinks his family
will get to see the documents that are being released from the DOJ to Congress,
Terry replied with hesitation, questioning whether such documents would be
redacted, but hopeful.
“I’ll pretty much believe it when I
see it,” he said, adding that “the truth” is the family’s main concern –
“That’s all we want and I hope these documents come forward and that they’re
not redacted and they’re not misleading us again” by holding back some of the
documents for years longer. “I hope they’re transparent.”
Terry discussed a promise that Trump
made to him at a Trump presidential campaign rally, “I met with him. I shook
his hand.” Terry described Trump as “very sincere about this country. He is,
you can see it.” Trump was also apologetic for Brian Terry’s death,
“apologizing for the previous administration.”
“He promised when he became president
he was going to open up the books in my brother’s death and he did,” said
On March 3 Terry tweeted out a photo
of a July 2014 letter from Holder to Terry that pledged to hold those
responsible for Agent Brian Terry’s murder accountable.
Terry also tweeted out a plea to
President Trump, asking him to “…reopen Obama’s gun scandal that cost my
brother his life…”
He has been outspoken
in television interviews about the case over the past week.
“The Department of Justice under my
watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law,” AG Sessions said upon
the Wednesday news of the DOJ document release settlement. Sessions called it
“an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts
related to Operation Fast and Furious.”
Ed. On March 7th, the Department of Justice agreed to release documents concerning Fast and Furious to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. “The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law," said AG Jeff Sessions.
Of course, Hussein and paid thug Eric Holder said the same thing, even as they spent years refusing to provide the Committee with the documents which Rep. Darrell Issa had demanded.
