(CNSNews.com) - The long-awaited inspector general's report on the Justice Department's botched gun-running scheme is finished, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said on Wednesday.
But along with that news comes more questions: Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) are demanding to know why a top ATF official involved in Operation Fast and Furious remains on paid leave from ATF -- while simultaneously drawing a six-figure salary from J.P. Morgan, a major investment bank.

The trail of blood leads directly to 1600 Penn. Ave.
Most criminal acts I have ever seen in my life. (I'm not young)
In case you missed it.
So the banksters and thugsters ARE making it formal?
“The trail of blood leads directly to 1600 Penn. Ave.”
It certainly does.
Isn't JP Morgan in trouble - might be in need of 'help'...
Is’nt this a major conflict of interest ethically since JP Morgan provides the government credit cards?
Government is corrupt to the core.
Government is corrupt to the core.
Why was McMahon planted in a large American Bank?
Is Fast and Furious McMahon also laundering money for the Mexican Drug gangs?
What deals did AG Holder make to drop charges for JPM in exchange for McMahon to get paid to cool off?
Did Obama’s Exec. Order get issued to protect McMahon’s link to Obama and/or JPM?
BTW, didn’t Obama say the other day that he was transferring his millions from Bank of America to another bank?
I wonder if the bank might be J. P. Morgan?
THE PAYOFF for keeping silent.
Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa have asked the Acting Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to explain how a top ATF official involved in Operation Fast and Furious, Bill McMahon, can remain on paid leave while simultaneously drawing an additional six figure salary from a major financial services company.
DoJ to Chuck & Darrell, >> Fo&D.
Absolute contempt is their engine.
Yep. And next the 20,000 Muzzies to attend the Dem Convention.
Darkness and Evil approaches.
Lots of question.
For most of them we already know the answers.
Yep, Contempt for the Constitution, Rule of Law and the citizens of this nation.
Yup. The problem is to find Congressmen and women who have the backbone to get published answers.
It is Almost TIME.
We have our work cut out for us in November.
And then the work begins punishing those who brought us to this point. Never, Never, Never forget. Treason is still a serious crime.
People come first for them, but only in your list.
Very important questions. Another question to add:
How much drug cartel money has gone into Obama’s coffers in exchange for sending them a bunch of guns and leaving the borders wide open??
So, he’s being paid with govt stimulus money....yes, this is a conflict of interest.
I'll bet we're going to hear of more formalizing in the next week or two with the public unveiling of the third leg of the stool, islam.
Guns, drugs and money. Nobody appreciates vast quantities of each more than pirates do.
YUP,... follow the money !! And then let the trials begin .
Why is JP Morgan so tied to the Feds?
That’s my bank but something stinks like old, dead fish.
Money which is kicked back to Obama/DNC
Take the rap.
No wonder the banksters are comfortable telling the law to pound sand.
When a Tea Party Congress acts on the above.....why the ATF willl be their to arrest them.
This is okay with me. When it comes time to feed the hogs, this little fish will be in a gun free zone.
“...Bill McMahon, can remain on paid leave while simultaneously drawing an additional six figure salary from a major financial services company.”
Where is the illegality? He is on leave, and can do what he wants while on leave, including working for someone else. As I understand the regulations, you can work for another firm while working for the government, as long as your moonlighting does not interfere with your government job, and the job is approved of by your supervisor.
This may be shady, but if McMahon is taking terminal leave, what is illegal about him starting his new job while on that leave?
Once again we see how the deep and pervasive is the corruption endemic in our federal government.
Thanks for the ping Mesta.
This is as ugly as ugly gets. An obvious payoff....and so brazen as to be laughable.
Thanks for the link to the MF story and to
I can’t say I look forward to the day when conversation about abuse of power no longer stops at ‘mistakes were made’ or ‘personality disorders’ explanations. But until then, not too much will change.
Behind such short sighted blandishments, the criminal elite rolls along unimpeded. Even to the uprising planned and controlled by them.
Every action taken by the political leaders and their senior partners in crime that results in further loss of liberty is done purposely and with forethought. When that is absorbed by concerned America, Katy bar the door.
Leftist will go down but not easily. They’re organized and there’s a lot of them. Which brings to mind Chesty Puller’s words of wisdom at the frozen Chosin...
“All right, they’re on our left, they’re on our right, they’re in front of us, they’re behind us...they can’t get away this time.”
Wasn’t Monica Lewinsky paid off with a six figure job to lie under oath?
Issa says ATFs McMahon will probably be referred for criminal prosecution
This is somebody who our reports said perjured himself before the Congress, Issa charged. We dont understand why J.P. Morgan would hire somebody whos lied to Congress, that will probably be referred for criminal prosecution.
The specter of prosecution also makes speculative questions fair to ask, particularly since the joint letter by Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley to ATF Acting Director B. Todd Jones that set off this latest line of inquiry noted McMahon was now working for J.P. Morgan in the Philippines. Noting another prominent Gunwalker figure, former National Security Council official Kevin OReilly (recipient of the suspicious You didnt get these from me emails from former ATF Phoenix Field Office Special Agent in Charge William Newell, who has been placed out of the Committees reach due to State Department assignment in Iraq, and subsequently placed legally out of reach by White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler), wondering if McMahon has been similarly maneuvered out of reach is natural and warranted.
