In addition to Burke’s involvement in leaking the document, emails the IG uncovered show senior officials at the Department of Justice discussed smearing Dodson.

Obama has turned the entire US government into a criminal conspiracy.

“One of those was Tracy Schmaler, the Director of the Department’s Office of Public Affairs, who resigned her position at the DOJ after emails uncovered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request showed that she worked with leftwing advocacy group Media Matters for America to smear whistleblowers and members of Congress and the media who sought to investigate DOJ scandals under Attorney General Eric Holder.”

We knew this kind of thing was happening..

Once again, a report in the alternative media. The MSM wall is diverting, deemphasizing and spinning these scandals to protect their god.

Let's call it what it is. State-sponsored terrorism.

On this side of the border it's violations of the RICO Act. In Mexico and Honduras it's state-sponsored terrorism.

What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within a foreign country wherein that country is in a death struggle with those syndicates?

Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?

Not to mention that the rip crew that killed BP Agent Brian Terry was there with DEA and FBI assistance and approval to attack and kill a rival cartel's smuggling crew.

Let's not leave out the DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.

It's organized, it is spread through every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned. It's the FedGov acting like mafiosa.

0bama, Holder and Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is state-sponsored terrorism. These criminal thugs are dragging our country down to the level of Tehran and Pyongyang.

The lawmakers said Burke, who testified two weeks ago in secret, “was unable to answer detailed questions about what his subordinates knew about the case.”

Lawmakers: Burke’s ex-office played ‘striking’ role in Fast and Furious

“Burke resigned from his post as U.S. Attorney over the incident in August 2011, the first major Department of Justice official to leave his or her post in the Fast and Furious scandal. He said after the fact, in interviews with congressional investigators, that he now views leaking the document as a “mistake.” “

So he admitted this. He resigned about a year and a half ago.
The IG took all that time to catch up with what was already established fact? To me thats the breaking news. What a waste of time and money.

Burke was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1962

On August 30, 2011, Burke resigned, (See Burke Resignation Letter to President Barack Obama below.), as a result of increased pressure being applied to his U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona office from various directions, including Congress, in the wake of the gunwalker scandal. Project Gunrunner occurred within the ranks of the U.S. Justice Department, specifically the FBI and the BATF&E, and resulted in sweeping investigations and multiple resignations with Burke’s resignation being the most senior of these.

Former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke admitted leaking a sensitive document about a federal agent (Agent John Dodson) who blew the whistle on the gunrunning operation.[4] Mr. Burke’s Phoenix attorney, Lee Stein, said in a Nov. 8 2011 letter to the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General that his client had provided information to a reporter who was working on several stories involving Fast and Furious.

The family of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry charged that Mr. Burke, then US Attorney for the District of Arizona, lied to them about the guns found at the crime scene in an attempt to hide the weapons’ connection to the ATF’s failed Fast and Furious gun sales operation.

Senior officials (from the top down) are and have been engaged in smearing and eliminating opposition, including obfiscation ,lieing , delaying , etc...
The information is only comming out now ~ what , after 3 years ?

RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

I am going to post this link again. This is how the Justice Department operates. Snuck in a Joe Arapaio press conference while Arpaio was under investigation by the DOJ for “violating” Hispanic “rights”. They REFUSED TO TELL THE SHERIFF’S DEPT. THEIR NAMES. They were trying to VIOLATE the rights of the Sheriff, (who had an attorney representing him), by asking him questions without his attorney present (while pretending to be reporters). THIS DOJ UNDER HOLDER DOES NOT PLAY BY THE RULES. They are TYRANTS and law breakers.
