Examiner.com ^ | 1/4/12 | David Codrea

Gun Rights Examiner and Sipsey Street Irregulars received information this evening that three of the prime Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives players in the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal have been relieved of duties.

William Hoover, ATF's Deputy Director during Fast and Furious, who was recently reassigned as Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Field Office, Assistant Director in Charge of Field Operations Mark Chait, likewise reassigned as head of the Baltimore Field Office, and Deputy Assistant Director of Field Operations William McMahon have reportedly been sidelined pending the outcome of the anticipated report from the Office of Inspector General. Debbie Bullock a mid-level manager has reportedly been advised that she is now the acting SAC for Baltimore, and will assume Chait's functions.

These three were the recipients of a January 20, 2011 email from ATF Associate Chief Counsel Barry Orlow, advising them and other Bureau attorneys of Gun Rights Examiner's “Open Letter to Senate Judiciary Committee staff on 'Project Gunwalker',” which put Senator Chuck Grassley's office on notice that ATF employees want d to come forward to provide testimony and documentation about gunwalking to Mexico. They were also prominent in a position issued by the CleanUpATF webmaster:

Dept. of Justice announce those who have been relieved of duties.

ATF's Deputy Director during Fast and Furious . . . Assistant Director in Charge of Field Operations . . . Deputy Assistant Director of Field Operations and six GS-4 employees to be named later.

"We hope this settles the case and we can get back to work for the people," said Att. Gen. Holder.

FYI, they would be GS-14 level folks, not GS-4. GS-4 is waaay too low.

Great ping!
To think that the lowly underlings dreamt up F & F. Go figure.
I wish the Republicans would use their air time slamming 0bama on each and every one of his outrages.

Yeah, the noose is tightening on Holder and now even FUBO is starting to flail with stuff like these “recess appointments” that aren’t. Come on complete breakdown!

It looks like the ATF managers now have an extended paid vacation. How is that punishment?

Not so fast Mr racist furious Holder, if you guys can mock a Birth certificate there's much more to come. Spill it a-hole.

Just in case.. I was being a little sarcastic and made up the quote and the GS-4 stuff.

The point I was trying to make is that the real criminals (Obama, Holder, et al.) have the power to blame others and the most likely others are the lowest ranking civil servants who are powerless and the most vulnerable.

The three men named however have high GS rankings (GS-18?), are above GS in the SES (I think it's called), or are appointed.

A deal may have been worked with them or they were deemed "easy pickins'".

I believe the next questions for the AG will be: “So, a field office on its own authority can allow illegal guns to cross international borders. Tell us how that works.”

Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC) will enjoy his lunch, and Holders too.
The arrogant buffoons time is fast approaching.
I just can't wait to hear him squeal…
"but Barry made me do it, he said, you know, uh, Eric, I mean, you know, it'll be, you know, well, it'll be alright."

I watched the last F&F hearing.

From Gowdy’s tone and body language, he wanted to take Holder out back for an a$$-kicking.
