The NEW president should demand the resignations of every person living or dead in the doj.
I second your thought.
Cynthia A. Schnedar
Why would she do that, unless she was ordered to hand them over right now? Somebody above her in a big hurry?
BOB OWENS: THE DOJ INSPECTOR GENERAL CANT BE TRUSTED TO INVESTIGATE GUNWALKER

DOJ Inspector General Cant Be Trusted to Investigate Gunwalker Posted By Bob Owens
Aside from Schnedars credibility gap, the source further noted the Obama administrations history of intimidating inspectors general, citing the firing and smearing  of Inspector General of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) Gerald Walpin, who was investigating  the AmeriCorps scandal, which had in its sights Obamas friend Kevin Johnson.
FORMER DEPT. OF JUSTICE LEGAL ASSISTANT SENTENCED FOR DRUG TRAFFICKING
U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams, Jr. sentenced Wilson Lee Garrett, age 37, of Waldorf, Maryland, who was a legal assistant at the Department of Justice when he was arrested in 2009, to serve 248 months in prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and attempted and actual possession with intent to distribute cocaine, and possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Williams also ordered Garrett to forfeit $100,000, the proceeds of the conspiracy. Garrett was convicted on May 26, 2011, after an eight day jury trial.
Given the abundance of official, expert, and media reports of large-scale false imprisonments, widespread corruption of the courts, and unprecedented fraudulent dispossession of homeowners throughout the United States, the testimony by the Acting Inspector General must be deemed false and deliberately misleading.
Los Angeles, February 10 on February 9, 2010
Acting Inspector General Cynthia Schendar, US Department of Justice, provided a statement before the US House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, concerning oversight of the department of justice. [[i]] Upon review of the statement and the true facts in the matter, the statement must be deemed false and deliberately misleading.
The statement lists challenges of the US Department of Justice, similar to those that have been listed in previous years, including:
I want on the list.
She doesnt look too happy with Todd Zinser there. Looks to be a little worried. Great pick.
What did the President know ... and when did he know it?
A Hiliary mole?
So far “Slick Willie’s” Teflon vest has been handed over to the purple lipped kenyan prince...please let this be the the magic bullet!!!!!
Democrat president...govt agents selling arms to Mexican criminals...no big.
Republican president...govt agents selling arms to Iran...atrocity!
why has Holder and his racist cronies still there after everything they have done?
I just hope the next president holds investigations into this corrupt regime
An open request to ATF and FBI:
IF there are any HONORABLE agents left in the Justice Department, the Ameican people would appreciate you would seriously uphold your oath and tell the committee what you know.
You work for US REMEMBER?
Not a bunch of political hacks.
Every little position and section of the government is becoming so saturated with these 'career' Marxists that it is getting almost impossible to get any truth out. These federal employed Commies will make a life-time career in these government jobs.
Why am I not surprised that she clerked for a judge on the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals. Considering the number of 9th Cir. Ct. decisions that have been reversed, it sounds like Cindi learned to be incompetent early in her career.
I want her and her ilk strung up in the town square.
The Democrat party is one critter that never changes its stripes, Mrs. Justice Inspector you’d have been better off letting this sadly ignored story run out of steam.
No matter how many you eliminate, there's ALWAYS more.
Like many Freepers, I believe that the power to appoint a special prosecutor has often been abused over the years. But if there is ever a case that cries out for a special prosecutor, then this is it. The GOP leadership and the MSM, however, have been passive on this issue. The drums have been mostly silent. Why?
The msm will ignore this as they focus for the next month on the “racist murder” of troy davis.
LOL! let's see the prosecution.
Please put me on the ping list.
