A fed judge in D.C. appeared skeptical of the Justice Department’s bid to dismiss a lawsuit centering on the poorly thought out ATF operation known as Fast and Furious, according to the Associated Press.¬†

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has filed a lawsuit seeking records related to the operation.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson “sharply challenged the department’s claim that federal courts have no jurisdiction in the dispute,” according to the Associated Press.

“I’m a check and balance,” countered Jackson.”The third branch exists.”
