Imagine there’s no justice; it’s easy if you try.
In response to a gunwalking operation that put more than 2,000 firearms into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, and which led to the death of at least one U.S. law enforcement agent and more than 300 people in Mexico, the ATF will look for “recommendations on job terminations or suspensions.”
Numerous felonies were committed by government employees of Barack Obama’s administration. These felonies include violations of the Arms Export Control Act, violations of the Kingpin Act, possible RICO violations, violations of the Whistleblower Protection Act, felonies related to the cover-up of Brian Terry’s death at the hands of an FBI criminal informant, including the hiding of the informant’s SKS rifle, and other crimes. Eric Holder’s apparent perjury in front of Congress about when he know of Operation Fast and Furious is the least of the administration’s problems.
This points to a possible DOJ defense tactic: in exchange for suspensions and resignations, those responsible will be thrilled to have the option of not talking about the criminality of their actions. Those in the position to “tell all” to reduce their sentence length with a plea bargain in a criminal trial have no reason whatsoever to talk if their continued silence can be bought for such a cheap price.
The ATF routinely sanctions or even shuts down gun dealers for paperwork errors, but seems intent on giving itself a pass on 2,000 purposefully walked guns used to commit hundreds of murders.
If Attorney General Eric Holder’s former co-prosecutor, acting Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar, allows DOJ officials off with mere administrative punishments instead of recommending dozens of criminal indictments, then you know the Inspector General;s investigation is a sham.
