Donald Trump met with siblings of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and "promised" them answers, Breitbart reported.

"Mr. Trump … is very sincere about Brian's death," Kent Terry, brother of Brian, told Breitbart. "He promised us if he becomes president, he will open the books on Fast and Furious."

Terry was killed in the line of duty in December of 2010 after a gunfight with a Mexican crew.

The scandal, later labeled "Fast and Furious," revolved around two guns found at the scene of Terry's murder that were tied to a gun-running operation known as "gunwalking," in which ATF agents allowed the sale of guns to illegal buyers in the hopes of tracking the guns to Mexican cartel leaders.

The operation came to light only after whistleblower John Dodson, an ATF agent at the time, went public.

Though two Mexicans were convicted and sentenced to life in prison, nobody in the government has been held accountable for the operation. Further, answers of what really happened have been scant.

Until now, the Terry family hopes.

"Mr. Trump said it was shameful on this administration for starting a scandal like this and shameful for what they're doing about it," Kent Terry told Breitbart.
