Let’s hope Issa does not stop with the ATF. This isn’t over yet.
Holder is the one who should resign! This guy is the sacrificial lamb, isn’t he?!
Take Holder with ya...
I agree, this is far from over. This had to have been authorized by Holder himself, but I won’t hold my breath until he’s held accountable for anything.
Yes he is. And WTH is with the he may resign in ‘the coming days.’ “Holder to meet with him.”Holder will tell him to shut the hell up and offer him cash or what?
They want Andrew Traver to fill in as acting? Oh geez, he’s the Chicago ATF guy. Another Chicago guy in the administration, unbelievable.
Where’s my pension?
This is only the beginning, they will get to Holder.
The ATF director needs to be on the list for prosecution or extradition to Mexico.
Soro’s must have sent out his DUmmy bloggers; there is actually a comment under the article saying “it is not corruption it was a botched operation.”
Smoke and Mirrors!
This is designed to distract from the real lynchpins — Obama and Holder.
Keep pressing, Issa!
“Botched” because it didn’t accomplish its goal of providing 0bama with an excuse to push through more gun control.
“Botched” because it didn’t accomplish its goal of denying that there is a crime problem on the border that would be solved with more enforcement.
We want blood!! Feed them all to the lions, bears and alligators.
Check my tagline.
Exactly! We need to know how high up the chain this goes.
Issa should not let up!
