Firings and charges against the justice department officials who oversaw the agency's flawed gun-running operation are likely to come in the next six months, Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday.
Holder was speaking before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to discuss the controversial sting operation called Operation Fast and Furious.
Asked what steps he had taken since the controversy came to light 13 months ago, Holder said he is awaiting the conclusions of an internal investigation.
Regarding people found culpable in that probe, he said, "I can assure you those people will be removed from federal service."
Any possible charges will not be filed until the department has the evidence to get a conviction, he said at the hearing.

“....removed from federal service..”
Translation: Trying to figure out who to offer up as a sacrifice to shut Issa up.
Hmmm? Think he’ll try to indict Bush? Obviously it was all his fault under Wide Receiver to start with.
“Firings and charges against the justice department officials who oversaw the agency”
What? Teh democrat study they released last week noted no Federal problems - the entire thing was due to State failures...
That is what they said...
“Likely to come in the next six months”. Probably more like 8 or 9, and then, if my boss loses I can delay it even more and let the next AG deal with it. Brilliant.
“The buck stops somewheres else”
Obama says the train is coming and they can join Rev Wrong. He won’t have anyone left by election time.
nothing gets a tight lipped man talking faster than being offered up as a sacrifice in place of his complicit employer.
The mid-level attorneys under Holder can't or won't testify. The Chief DOJ atty. out of Phoenix invoked the 5th, then quite to go into private practice. Holder said he can't make him testify.
Unless a "Deep Throat" shows up, Mr. Big will skate.

Be careful what you wish for...
In other news, Hitler vows to get to the bottom of the Holocaust and promises to find those accountable and demote them one level in rank.
It seems to me that Agent Terry was involuntarily removed from Federal service.
I see my congressman (Tim Walberg) made a Penn state Jerry Sandusky comparison. LOL
There’s sure to be a screeching editorial about that in the local paper by morning.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Looks like Holder is waiting us out for November and then he will leave...
There will be no justice until Holder is in prison with Obama.
Holy sacrificial lamb, Batman!
I’ve read this example used, from Bengal - The Running Thief
A thief steals from a market - a typical open air market - and if he thinks someone might have noticed something wrong, he immediately yells “Thief! Thief!! He went that way, I see him!!” and starts running after the supposed thief, shouting and pointing.
And it’s transparently obvious to everyone involved, including the sacks of s*** aka as “Democrats”.
I think he will offer up his buddies..... just in time for Obama to pardon them on the way out the door.
Why? Holder, himself, said no one did anything wrong by illegally selling firearms and illegally allowing them to be transported to Mexico and killing Mexican and US citizens and federal agents. Why would Holder say this now?
