ATF whistleblower site posts Fast and Furious managerís OK to work for JPMorgan

Why would ATF management let a 'Gunwalker' figure cited as vulnerable for prosecution do this? Credits: US DOJBATFE

A question asked almost two months ago in this column was answered yesterday by a post on CleanUpATF, the website established by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives whistleblowers to expose agency waste, abuse, corruption and fraud: Who approved “double-dip” employment for former Assistant Director William McMahon, a central Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking’ figure, going on paid leave while accepting private employment and an overseas assignment with financial giant JPMorgan?

The approval document, posted as a pdf file on CUATF, reveals the approving authorities were Assistant Director Julie Torres, Deputy Director Thomas Brandon and Deputy Chief Counsel Melanie S. Stinnett. Gun Rights Examiner posted an exclusive report in September presenting allegations that the Chief Counsel’s Office is still running the show at ATF, organizational appearances notwithstanding, and was later informed by an insider source that report raised hackles.

“Word I heard was Brandon and Julie Torres signed off on it,” whistleblower Vince Cefalu posted in September, demonstrating the reliability of his sources and insights for accuracy. Cefalu was unceremoniously canned after over 25 years of service in a Denny’s restaurant parking lot this week, a story reported Wednesday in this column, a day before Fox News picked it up. A related exclusive story, featuring a secret video recording of the termination was published in this column on Thursday, again a story then picked up by other news sites.

A member of the coverup commits perjury, and is given an overseas job by a company contracting with his department, all the while keeping his government job. I think people will search hard and long and still not find any precedence for this.

This is an awkward sentence. It sounds like he worked in a Denny’s parking lot for 25 years!

The corruption of the Obama administration, Holder’s “Justice” Department and the ATF knows no bounds.
