**********BREAKING NEWS**********
From Heidi at Euphoric Reality

Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) announced today in Houston, TX that DHS-Inspector General Richard Skinner admitted that his deputy inspectors Lisa Redman and James Taylor as well as DHS congressional liaison Tamara Faulkner LIED to members of Congress about statements that are foundational to the prosecution’s case against Border Patrol agents Compean and Ramos.The DHS inspectors claimed that the Border Patrol agents were “rogue cops” and that they had very damning sworn statements to that effect:

1. They knew that he was unarmed.

2. They knew that he was not a threat to them.

3. That they had said that morning that they were going to “go out and shoot them some Mexicans.”

Furthermore, the DHS officials promised Congress that they would produce those sworn statements for Congressional review. That was four and a half months ago. Since then, DHS has stalled and obfuscated every time the Congressional members wrote letters or made phone calls to collect those statements from DHS.

All three of those statements have now been proven as false. DHS-IG Skinner admitted yesterday that his deputies lied to Congress and that those sworn statements do not exist and that Congress had been “misled”.

Culberson has concluded that DHS deliberately lied to Congress and gave them false information in order to “throw them off the scent” of their investigation into the Border Patrol case. He said this is indicative of a large-scale cover-up inside of DHS, the Department of Justice, and the entire prosecution against Compean and Ramos. He and other Congressman will be announcing today their demand for a full investigation into the DHS cover-up and the immediate resignations of the DHS officials involved.

I’ll have more updates within a few hours, which I’ll post here, including the audio of John Culberson’s statements in Houston, TX. Stay tuned…
