These aren't crooks they are idealistic socialists.The obvious failure is a result of arrogance.I can do what I want because I am.......(name any cabinet position)




They aren't just crooks they are obstructing justice which makes them criminals.
The POTUS won't let soldier Keith O'Reilly testify in Fast and Furious (he wants to testify).


Keith O'Reilly could testify over the phone.

Right now he is hiding behind Hillary Clintons skirt in the American embassy in Iraq!


I really would like to know your sources because I've been watching this story like a hawk and this is the first time I've heard that argument.


Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz told the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly on Friday that although a key White House witness in the ill-fated Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program is willing to testify about what he knows, the Obama administration won’t let him appear before Congress.

White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler sent a letter Thursday to Republican lawmakers Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley, refusing their request to speak with Kevin O’Reilly, a former National Security staff member whose emails place him in the middle of the unfolding scandal. Issa and Grassley had written to Ruemmler on March 28, asking the White House to step aside and let O’Reilly talk to investigators.

He would probably get court-martialed for testifying.

Thank you for the trouble of tracking it down. The article says:


Yesterday Rep. Issa and Sen. Grassley sent a letter to Kathryn Ruemmler, Counsel to the President, requesting that Mr. O'Reilly be allowed to testify. They note that Mr. O'Reilly's personal attorney is willing to let him testify if it is allowed by the White House. Moreover, in a break from normal procedures, they are willing to let him testify by phone from Iraq.


So it is saying Grassley and Issa are willing to let him testify by phone not the White House.

The article ends on this note.


Sen. Grassley says that they have one side of the story from ATF SAC Bill Newell and they need the other side of the story from Kevin O'Reilly. He also said that they were being stonewalled by the White House and that this continual stonewalling leads one to look guilty of something. He has a point there - if the White House has nothing to hide then they should make Kevin O'Reilly available for telephonic testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. I'm guessing it isn't going to happen.

Government's answer to "Fast and Furious" records requests: Blank pages
www.cbsnews.com...

I viewed the PDF file on the FOIA response. All I can say is they must have much to hide because the emails they provide were mostly blank. One email began with "Hello," and ended 1and 1/2 pages later: "Thank you for your help."

DoJ is covering alot of personnel's hides here. This type response shows that information from the FOIA isn't very free when a cover-up is involved.


Great updates !!

The "blank pages" reflect the general mentality inside the high places of government today

( I wonder how long it took somebody else to figure out the pages were blank and what that could have meant
)
Unbelievable.

I think they all have butterflies in their tummies right about now


They are scared of losing their easy money easy jobs.

Thank you.

I hope you are right about the butterflies. Boehner is making me nervous. Hoping he doesn't have a gun to this head.
Did you know they walked grenades as well as rifles?



Fast and Furious: Grenade walking revisited
www.humanevents.com...


ATF started watching Kingery in "2004 related to AK47 purchases," according to an internal email, "it is believed that he is trafficking them to Mexico." A full five years later in late 2009, ATF also learned Kingery was dealing in grenades: he'd ordered 120 grenade bodies on the Internet.

Grenades are weapons of choice for Mexico's killer drug cartels. An attack on a casino in Mexico last year killed 53 people.
