“You’ve got people who are dead. You have weapons that are missing and you have an administration that doesn’t seem to want to take any accountability for it.” – Congressman Jason Chaffetz.
Insiders reportedly tipped off Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley weeks ago regarding thousands of pages of documents being stored at the Washington DC ATF headquarters. To date, neither Issa nor Grassley have been able to get full compliance from the ATF or the Obama Department of Justice regarding full disclosure of these alleged documents. Insiders have indicated that ATF officials are working closely with the DOJ to determine which documents are acceptable to be viewed by members of Congress – not so much out of concern for ongoing investigations, but as a clear stalling tactic meant to protect high ranking officials now being implicated in the developing scandal.
According to Congressman Darrell Issa, who earlier this week aggressively rebuked the claims by Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich’s claim that his office was in fact fully cooperating with the Congressional investigation of Project Gunrunner/Fast and Furious and the resulting deaths of both American and Mexican border agents and citizens, it is not only Republicans who are now demanding real answers and accountability. “Thus far, more than 30 Democratic House Members have joined Senator Grassley and me in calls for the truth.”
Congressman Issa also released emails obtained from special agent George Gillett, formerly of the ATF office in Phoenix. Those emails reveal ATF Director Kenneth Melson, who himself answers to Attorney General Eric Holder, as being directly involved in the failed Gunrunner project. Those emails outlined Melson’s ability to in fact watch in real-time the illegal gun transactions from his office in Washington DC via hidden cameras set up by ATF operatives inside various gun stores.And now with both Democrats and Republicans demanding answers to what Congressman Jason Chaffetz describes as a situation where, “You’ve got people who are dead. You have weapons that are missing and you have an administration that doesn’t seem to want to take any accountability for it.”
