DOJ’s preferred scapegoat invokes the Fifth in Fast and Furious

Written By: Bob - Jan• 20•12

Sure. Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler, Deputy Attorney General David W. Ogden, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich, ATF Director Kenneth E. Melson, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrator Michele Leonhart, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Robert Mueller, U.S. Attorney for the District of Minnesota/Chair of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee/Acting ATF Director B. Todd Jones, top federal prosecutors in the southwest and White House staffers were all aware of Operation Fast and Furious. So let’s blame it all on the one guy in Arizona.

Cunningham is in a tough spot, but also a spot where what he knows might just save his bacon.

What concerns me more are concerns that Congressional investigators might be backing off, perhaps fearful of reprisals from the DOJ and the Obama Administration.  I like to think that Issa is as tough and relentless as the persona he projects, and it looks like we’ll have a chance to see if he’s willing to hold the Obama Administration accountable, or if he’ll be content with low-hanging fruit.
