Copies of letters received this week by Gun Rights Examiner from a source close to the case of John Shipley, the FBI agent convicted of illegal gun dealing who has been the subject of a series of exclusive recent reports in this column, show that House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa and Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Charles Grassley were approached by Shipleys father in September, 2011, and again in February of this year, with a request to investigate egregious criminal conduct by members of the ATF and DOJ as evidenced in his sons case.
Enclosed are several Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) reports, Department of Justice (DOJ) reports, trial transcripts and other pertinent evidence. Also included are explanations of the significance of each document, Berchard R. Shipley, LTC (Ret), US Army, wrote in separate letters to Issa and Grassley, referencing the same documents Gun Rights Examiner posted in the recent related reports. As with those exhibits, the letters have been posted to this correspondents Scribd account here for the Issa letter and here for the Grassley letter.
Additionally, a timeline of events in the Shipley case, from the beginning of the investigation of trafficker Jonatan Lopez Gutierrez in August, 2007, through to the beginning of Shipleys trial in April, 2010, has been posted so readers can understand and follow the sequence of events outlined in earlier Gun Rights Examiner reports..

Their purpose is to demonize and imprison ordinary citizens or legitimate firearms businessmen fall guys while creating fraudulent statistics against those same fall guys for the use of Marxist/statist gun "control" groups and their obedient MSM.
