The BATFE needs to be disbanded and everything involved with them fumigated....
“the DOJ has still failed to turn over 74,000 requested documents to the House Oversight Committee.”
I keep wondering, why haven’t any warrants been issued?
If you or I refused to turn over records subpoenaed by Congress, we would be sitting in jail.
ATF should be a convenience store, not a US Govy Agency.
So their defense is that they are bungling and incompetent managers?

This novel is a terrific if terrifying read and, I believe, is truly prescient regarding the FedGov's war on the Second Amendment and freedom in general.
What are the Republicans in Congress doing about this most recent pack of lies?
Like the loose spin on evidence - all those thousands of redacted pages.
After they are convicted... hang the sumbiches.
how will Grassley and Issa respond to this literal 'eff u' from the criminal defense attorneys ???
Gangster Government, and Sakharov’s Immunity
Matthew Bracken, February 29, 2012
For over a year now, the Department of Justice has been stone-walling the House committees investigating Operation Fast And Furious, wherein thousands of semi-automatic rifles (”assault rifles” in the liberal lexicon) were deliberately allowed to “walk” into Mexico, straight into the hands of drug cartel killers. One of those weapons was used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry a dozen miles inside of U.S. territory.
The actual killer is believed to be an FBI “informant.” In other words, a cartel assassin in his own right, but also a valuable “asset” in the FBI’s consideration. The FBI and DOJ have been shielding this killer, while obstructing the delivery of justice to the Brian Terry family. On the other side of the border, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was also murdered with a “gun-walked” weapon, along with over three-hundred innocent Mexican citizens as of this date.
And where is the elite Mainstream Media in its coverage of this festering scandal of such epic proportions? Over the past year they have dedicated scant minutes to the scandal, and then, usually to parrot the Obama administration’s lies and obfuscations. Just during one recent week, the elite media spent countless hours covering the death and funeral of a beloved celebrity drug addict, compared to the few minutes they have spent covering Operation Fast And Furious during all of the last year.
Under Operation Fast And Furious, and related DOJ-ATF gun-walking schemes in at least five states, there was no plan or means to track the weapons after their sale. Licensed gun dealers were coerced by the BATFE into making repeated bulk sales, even when they expressed grave concern about the persons buying the weapons, including known felons. Federal cash was provided to the straw purchasers when they did not have their own money.
As conceived and carried out, the intended purpose of Operation Fast and Furious was to rack up a bloody body count in Mexico, in order to discredit the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as spelled out in the Second Amendment of the Constitution. The murdered Mexicans were intended to buttress the false claim that ninety percent of the weapons recovered in Mexico after gangland shootings came from American gun dealers.
In short, the Obama administration conducted a program of mass murder for political purposes. Or, as President Obama put it to Sarah Brady, he was still pursuing a gun control agenda, but “under the radar.” It is hard to conceive of a federal “law enforcement operation” [sic] more evil from top to bottom than Operation Fast And Furious.

I am working on a video project.
I need a female spokesperson who has lost a family member in the Mexican drug wars.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
If they are lawyering up then it’s time to indict. Past time.
