Skip to comments.Sipsey Street Exclusive: More DOJ Whistleblowers Emerge, This Time From DC.
Posted on 06/13/2012 6:06:51 PM PDT by marktwain
Multiple, previously highly credible, sources close to the Gunwalker investigation report that there are at least one and perhaps two sources within the Department of Justice headquarters who have approached the Issa Committee seeking whistleblower status. One source, who reported that there were at least two of Eric Holder's subordinates who "came in from the cold," characterized them as "high-level" DOJ employees "with knowledge of Eric Holder's actions before and after" the 4 February 2011 DOJ letter denying that the DOJ and its subordinate agencies knew about "gunwalking." That letter has since been admitted by DOJ to have been a lie. If true, one or both of these whistleblowers may be the so-called "mole" -- a source within DOJ said to have been leaking documents, including the wiretap affidavits, to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
What they bring with them from the cold, according to one source, is "the keys to the kingdom as far as Holder is concerned," adding "if this comes out before the (contempt) vote (on 20 June), then Holder is toast." Said another, "not even Boehner will be able to stop it. Hell, he'll really jump on board and act like it was his idea."
This surprising development has re-energized the investigation staff, which was widely rumored to be floundering after the reluctance, not to say opposition, of the GOP leadership became known some months ago. One source called these whistleblowers "game changers" while another, after speaking of the frustrations of recent months said, "But there sure is a sense of renewed enthusiasm here."
The emergence of two more whistleblowers, this time from Eric Holder's inner sanctum, may be one reason Congressman Issa sent this final offer to Attorney General Holder offering what sounds like one last chance to negotiate seriously, or else. When I commented upon this to one of the sources, "Oh, yeah, he's got the 'or else' in his pocket . . . more than one actually."
Other reporters are now chasing this story, so I expect we'll be hearing more on this development sooner rather than later.
got me one of them really big ACME rubber bands strapped ‘tween two cactus’s....I’m on my way...lol
I her tonight is the FIRST time NBC even mentioned Fast and Furious and it was just a fast blurb.
I’d love to find a real email address for them and tear into them . Talk about covering for the boss
Cases like this develop a “first one to the courthouse gets the prize” mentality.
The first one or two whistlebloswrs get immunity, respect, “love,” etc.
Everyone else gets indicted.
Remember Alexander Butterfield, the Nixonian nominee to head the FAA? In his hearings, he disclosed the Oval Office taping system, and it was effectively all over for Nixon.
He was thick as thieves with Haldeman and Erlichman, but skated because he “got to the courthouse first.”
If it's the second-biggest, then what is the first?
And they aren’t even “real reporters” (see the Juan Williams VS Michelle Malkin fight)
Best to get immunity from prosecution as soon as possible ... don’t want to be the last smuck standing their holding the bag!
thx and wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“The biggest scandal in US history (or the 2nd biggest) and the two most important journalists in the USA today two gun mag writers.”
All this going on and I’m out of popcorn! Holder needs to be in federal prison! Hey, at least he can spend some time reconnecting with his people!
It's about time...
I’m still wonderin’ what Melman(?) [Melson?] conveyed last July 4 weekend.
Boehner doesn’t want to persue F & F cause he is afraid of being called a racist.
Well if he fails to persue F & F then he is scum
They want to stay in office. The older ones have seen the MSM hound out Republicans who started to be effective. Just look at Tom Delay or Newt. I would even include Craig.
They see that the MSM is covering the Obama administration on this, and they do not want to be under fire from the MSM. It is also possible that extortion is being applied. The rumor is that Valerie Jarret has already applied it to a long standing Democrat senator who thought it best to get rid of Holder.
thanks for the ping
So Weich’s leaving to head up one of the hatcheries?
The election of a muslim bisexual Kenyan with deep ties to a known terrorist group to the office of POTUS.
