PROJECT GUN WALKER SCANDAL UPDATE
REP. ISSA ACCUSES ATF OF OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE
In what is perhaps a brave new threshold of grim irony for the Obama faction, a Department of Justice agency is being accused of obstructing justice. The ATF General Counsel has apparently sent threatening letters to witnesses, prompting Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) to accuse the agency of interfering with a Congressional investigation.
This news comes on the heels of the explosive email released last week proving that Obama's own National Security Director for North America, Kevin O'Reilly, was briefed nearly one year ago on "Project Gun Walker" by an ATF Special Agent In Charge.
In a desperate attempt to maintain a cover-up at the highest levels, the ATF has apparently resorted to intimidating witnesses. In an interview with the Washington Times, Rep. Issa reported that at least two of his key witnesses received threatening letters from ATF Associate Chief Counsel Barry S. Orlow warning them to keep certain areas off-limits from Congress, including those still under investigation. As a result, at least one witness tried to back out of testifying. This prompted Chairman Issa to send a letter to the ATF suggesting the agency "is obstructing and interfering with the Congressional investigation."
Layer by dirty little layer, Rep. Darrell Issa is peeling back the lies, corruption and cover up surrounding Attorney General Eric Holder's Gun Walker scam. In a direct statement regarding Holder's claims of ignorance, Issa said "How is it that the No. 2, 3, 4 at Justice all knew about this program, but the No. 1 didn't?" Issa went on to say of Holder, "[Either] he knew and he's lied to Congress, or he didn't know, and he's so detached that he wasn't doing his job."
Our question is, at this point does it matter? It is now absolutely clear ERIC HOLDER MUST GO!
How have we devolved to such a degraded condition that a Department of Justice agency can be accused of obstructing justice? Honor must be returned to this venerable institution, and that can only come if we commence with removing the corrupt political hack known as Eric Holder.
Frankly, the ongoing DOJ/ATF "Gun Walker" scandal represents merely the latest in a long line of disgraces associated with Attorney General Eric Holder, including numerous instances of his refusal to enforce or even abide by the law, such as the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case, the ACORN Voter corruption and funding scandals, federal court orders regarding "ObamaCare" and Congressional subpoenas, and his shocking dereliction of duty regarding the Defense of Marriage Act. Rather than stand as the "top cop" and ultimate sentinel and protector of our nation's rule of law, Holder seems to be far more interested in traducing the law to suit his own cronies, radical friends, colleagues, business associates – plus random "clients" and high bidders. How much longer will we tolerate corruption and outright trampling of the Constitution from America's highest law enforcement office? Our current Attorney General is not fit to lead the Department of Justice. ERIC HOLDER MUST GO!
Congressional hearings into the "Gun Walker" case are happening now, so we must act quickly to ensure the Department of Justice can be cleansed of the political corruption destroying it from within.
