Lawmakers accuse FBI of stonewalling Boston Marathon bombing inquiries

via Lawmakers accuse FBI of stonewalling Boston Marathon bombing inquiries – Washington Times.

Lawmakers said Wednesday that the FBI is blocking their inquiries into why it closed its files on one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects after Russia had warned the bureau in 2011 that he might be radicalizing and preparing to join Islamic extremist groups.

The FBI had “stonewalled us completely,” Rep. Peter T. King, New York Republican, said during an open hearing of the House Committee on Homeland Security, adding that it is “totally unacceptable” that the bureau is failing to cooperate.

“Part of our oversight has to be that case-closed procedure,” said Rep. William R. Keating, Massachusetts Democrat. “Something’s wrong.”

Rep. Michael T. McCaul, Texas Republican and committee chairman, said the panel would hear testimony Thursday from homeland security and counterterrorism officials in closed session.

Witnesses and lawmakers said Massachusetts authorities might have foiled the bombing if local police had followed up on Russian suspicions about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two Chechen-American brothers accused in the bombing. But the FBI never shared the tip from Moscow with state and local authorities.

Is the FBI stonewalling, a favorite ploy of Eric Holder, because there is no investigation ongoing as we noted here?

Mueller is too busy awarding the enemy:
