Issa warns Holder on continued whistleblower retaliation
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 3 July, 2012 | David Codrea

Posted on 07/04/2012 7:55:02 AM PDT by marktwain

The Sipsey Street Irregulars blog and Gun Rights Examiner have obtained an exclusive copy of a letter written by House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa to Attorney General Eric Holder, warning him against continued retaliation against whistleblowers in the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal, citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh announced this morning. The letter, dated June 1, specifically identifies agents Jay Dobyns and John Dodson as targets of official retribution.

Dobyns was the agent who had his family threatened and his house burned down after the Bureau failed to apply proper relocation procedures, and has been a longstanding critic of waste, abuse, corruption and fraud. Dodson was the agent who put a face to Fast and Furious whistleblowing in a groundbreaking series of interviews with Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News.

I believe there are criminal statutes that apply to retaliation on whistleblowers, but they are rarely enforced.

Impeach HANG the little bastard.

After a proper trial and conviction of course. Certainly wouldn't want to be seen as advocating anything improper or illegal, as the DOinJ does every day...
