So Melson is out of BATFE, but in the DoJ

Looks like he’s being moved to Justice, presumably where higher ups can keep a closer eye on what he’s up to.
Must've been some interesting dealing back & forth on this; lots of room for speculation. Especially with this:
Melson is being reassigned as a senior adviser on forensic science in the Office of Legal Policy, the department said.
Does Melson actually have expertise in this, I wonder?

U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke, one of the officials closely tied to Fast and Furious, is also a casualty in a shakeup tied to the botched gun-running program. Burke was on the hot seat last week with congressional investigators and, according to several sources, got physically sick during questioning and could not finish his session.

I know, but I heard this a bit ago when had to run out, and wanted to say something. Why, when my eyes are crossing, I don't k now...

Melson's spot is a do-nothing heel-cooling job. He's just being warehoused until he can be shitcanned without violating any whistelblower laws.
