Recordings released via CBS reporter Sharyl Atkisson offer many disturbing comments regarding the Gunwalker scandal. Weapons dealer Andre Howard is speaking with ATF agent Hope McAlister.
On one of the recordings it is suggested that putting a private investigator on Senator Chuck Grassley could help diminish Grassley's enthusiasm for the Gunwalker investigation:
Dealer: Until something else happens they're not stupid, Hope, they connect the dots.
Agent: No and you know and all that's fine if Senator Grassley wants to come in and tell us show us how to work these cases more efficiently more effectively by all means.
Dealer: Don't think Grassley, think Leahy.
Agent: Well, him too. I... I welcome him to come down and work...
Dealer: He's an arrogant b-----d
Agent: So is Grassley though
Dealer: Chuck probably and I don't know a thing about him other than from somebody else I've heard seems to be just somebody who's hitching his wagon to any star to.. for his own aggrandizement.
Dealer: You know that. He's an arrogant
Dealer: individual. Look he's a United States senator there it is right there.
Agent: That's kind of what my suggestion but nobody thought that was funny like if I were a P.I. I'd put him on Grassley, I'm sure there's a lot would go away. Actually my one suggestion was just tell him in a registered Republican. I'm sure if he knew that everything would be fine, they didn't like that either.
On the second, and IMO, more damning recording, it is suggested that Senator Patrick Leahy put and end to the inquiry:

I’m certain that Senator Depends has given his all to thwart this investigation. It’s in his dna.
It doesn't sound like he had to be pressured to take part in this mess.
I've got to wonder if he is government property, bought and paid for with stimulus money.
Congress will be a lot better once Leaky is gone. I’ve never trusted this ‘RAT. IMHO, he’s not an American and he doesn’t care about this country. It’s all about him and his party.
One thing Leahy loves more than murdering the innocent is, of course, eating them.
He will eventually get caught doing that.
Mr. Leahy is a communist thug.
Remember “Leaky Leahy?” He was one of the commmie rat traitors who leaked everything he could get his hands on in secret committiees to the communist Sandinstas.
The man has less moral scruples than a weasel in a hen house.
Leahy is a drunken pig who wears cheap suits and should be a permanent resident in an alcohol-abuse hospital ward. My guess is that he is also a well-known ‘guest’ in the Washington PD’s drunk tank.
If this whole thing brings down Holder and/or Leahy, I will feel like some justice was done.
