In a letter Tuesday, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley pressed Attorney General Eric Holder for details about a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives memorandum that indicates his Department of Justice may have tried to cover up the gunwalking tactics that were at the heart of Operation Fast and Furious.
Gary Styers, an ATF special agent in the Lubbock, Texas field office, wrote what Grassley described as a Fast and Furious memorandum on Feb. 3, 2011. In it, Styers described how two investigators for Grassleys Senate Judiciary Committee office had contacted him the day before about the Fast and Furious operation.
The memo described a specific operation in which guns were allowed to walk across the Mexican border. Grassley told Holder that according to ATF personnel, the memorandum was discussed by high level ATF personnel and possibly forwarded to DOJ headquarters on February 3, 2011.

I see a Nixon Saturday night massacre coming.
death by a million cuts.
Grassley is doing it Brietbart-style.
They are going to keep dropping documents into the congressional records until Eric Holder either flips or makes a Vince Foster/Ron Brown exit.
“Late last week, Grassley and House oversight committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa released more Fast and Furious documents indicating an Obama administration cover-up. One document showed that officials at ATFs headquarters had planned talking points meant to mislead the public about Operation Fast and Furious and Border Patrol Agent Brian Terrys murder before Grassley or anyone else asked any questions about it.”
Who would have thought through one of the politicals!
