Skip to comments.Fast and Furious: Prosecutions Coming? Congressman Darrell Issa announces that charges could be

House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa indicated on August 23 that the five Department of Justice officials the committee held responsible for Operation Fast and Furious may face criminal charges.
Speaking with Greta Van Susteren of Fox News, Issa discussed allegations that Deputy Assistant ATF Director William McMahon was double-dipping, drawing both a full-time salary from the ATF and a second full-time, six-figure salary from J.P. Morgan. The arrangement is suspicious, considering the controversy over McMahons role in Fast and Furious and the ATFs persecution of whistleblowers who sought similar arrangements. J.P. Morgan was one of the Obama administrations top donors in 2008 and was shielded by President Obama when it lost two billion dollars through poor investments. The close relationship between the administration and the concurrent salary for McMahon is a significant ethical conflict: it presents the appearance of the Obama administration using a prominent donor to funnel hush money to a highly placed official involved in a scandal, one which threatens President Obama and several cabinet officials.
While speaking of the controversy, Issa indicated that McMahon and other Fast and Furious co-conspirators would be referred for criminal prosecution: Advertisement
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.
That could be taken as a good indicator that four other officials identified along with McMahon as culpable in a July 31 Joint Congressional Staff Report are also being looked at with legal action in mind, and a better indicator that what they can exchange in terms of information about higher-ups could mitigate their risks.

LOL, what an unmitigated crock of crap. Never ever happen. The parties are too damned cozy with eachother.
One can hope Issa really means this and the digusting R “leaders” will shut up and let him do his job. I assume that some of these men will think “Hmm, years in prison; or tell what I know about my superiors...”
