Finally: Issa indicates ATF officials will face criminal prosecution for Fast and Furious

Written By: Bob - Aug• 23•12

It couldn’t happen to a more deserving group of lawless lawmen:

In a startling assertion almost buried in last night’s “On the Record” interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa indicated he has criminal charges in store for an ATF official implicated in the Fast and Furious “gunwalking” operation. Referring to “double-dipping” by former Assistant Director William Hoover, hired by the J.P. Morgan financial services conglomerate while he’s on leave from ATF and awaiting retirement, Issa let slip with what should be considered a bombshell announcement, and a precursor for things to come.

“This is somebody who our reports said perjured himself before the Congress,” Issa charged. “We don’t understand why J.P. Morgan would hire somebody who’s lied to Congress, that will probably be referred for criminal prosecution.”

That could be taken as a good indicator that four other officials identified along with McMahon as culpable in a July 31 Joint Congressional Staff Report are also being looked at with legal action in mind, and a better indicator that what they can exchange in terms of information about higher-ups could mitigate their risks.

The DOJ Inspector General’s report on Operation Fast and Furious has been completed and is being “reviewed” by the DOJ officials most objective observers suspect are the men most responsible for approving the plot. It is sham “justice” orchestrated by the corrupt to protect themselves. Do not expect any accountability to arrive from the internal investigation, which was conducted to root out whistleblowers and find weaknesses in the government’s flanks so that they can better execute a coverup for the sake of the Obama Administration.

For Democrats, it is far more important to keep the first black President and Attorney General out of prison than it is to hold them accountable for the hundreds murdered as a result of the deadliest scandal in U.S. Presidential history.
