Just received this link by email from Sharyl Attkisson at CBS:
They might want to start the government back up to see to their unraveling coverup.
I'm happy to see that Gillett is rolling on Newell, Melson and Company. He obviously was the first to recognize that he is no longer a law enforcement agent but a criminal and thus took the smart criminal's exit from a tight situation. All the poor Gunwalker Men. Should we pity them? No way in hell.
A top figure in the gunwalking controversy at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is now cooperating in the investigation.
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) made that disclosure today in a letter to ATF's acting director Kenneth Melson.)
Lord, they must've heard sphincters snapping shut and bowels loosening in the next building.
And get this:
In the letter, Sen. Grassley warns that any attempt to retaliate against the cooperating official, Assistant Special Agent in charge of ATF's Phoenix Division George Gillett, is unlawful.
Sen. Grassley also says the apparent efforts of ATF executives to stop employees from speaking with members of Congress and their staff is of "grave concern."
I think that's polite-speak for "We're pissed now; do you really want to push us further into "Let's put them under oath and see who drowns in sweat" territory?"
In the current top post at Sipsey Street:
A key leader in the federal law enforcement operation suspected of allowing high-powered assault weapons to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels is now cooperating with congressional investigators, providing a crucial new window into the controversial operation known as Project Gunrunner.
George Gillett Jr., assistant special agent in charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' field office in Phoenix, has met with congressional investigators and is expected to provide crucial information about how dozens of U.S. guns may have been transported with the ATF's knowledge into Mexico. Agents say Gillett provided much of the day-to-day oversight of the Gunrunner operation.
One of the questions Vanderboegh and Codrea have been asking is "Which of these people is going to break first? Who's going to start talking to keep someone else from rolling over on them?" Looks like we have the answer.
