Mid-June could potentially bring the first of what may be several hearings on Capitol Hill over Project Gunrunner, but that is not confirmed nor is it presently on the Congressional calendar, a House source said today.
"It might not happen," the source said via e-mail.
Mike Vanderboegh, the Sipsey Street Irregulars blogger who broke the initial Gunrunner stories with National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea almost six months ago, first reported the possibility of a hearing earlier today. That hearing would be before Congressman Darrell Issas Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Issa did recently indicate that hearings into the controversy were on the horizon, and a staffer confirmed that he would like to hold such hearings.
Rep. Issa is the California Republican who has unsuccessfully subpoenaed several documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. A failure by Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson to respond now has Issa considering holding Melson in contempt.
ATF whistleblowers have been cooperating with investigations launched by both Issa and Senator Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. One key individual who has apparently been cooperating is former Phoenix Assistant Special Agent in Charge, George Gillett. Grassley has hinted that he may put a hold on critical Justice Department nominations if that agency does not start cooperating with his inquiry.

The only thing I predict will come from this is that the Whistleblowers will suffer.
He also said when he asked a question he already has so many internal documents and they still lie.
( Fox Business and Fox News two different animals, Fox business is like a real TV network).
Ya gots to know lots of guilty garbage want this story buried.
Good news, if they can get the liars under oath. I'm confident they will lie under oath. They can't help themselves.
