Skip to comments.*New* Fast and Furious secrets from government emails
Posted on 06/07/2017 8:45:02 PM PDT by Kevin in California
Six years late, we have new insight into the governments secretive Fast and Furious operation in which federal agents purposely let thousands of assault rifles and other weapons be trafficked from the U.S. to Mexican drug cartels, where they were used in many murders and other crimes.
And the consequences to those involved are what?
So what actions will the Congress take about this?
Or will it be swept under the rug?
No major scandals on 0bama’s watch! /s
Which politicians and federal government appointees will be held criminally responsible?
Are they still all above the law? Will they once again get a pass because they’re special?
Statute of limitations?
FBI Criminal Informant Complicit in Brian Terrys Death (PJM Exclusive)
The rip crew was in Peck Canyon that evening with the intention of stealing money and drugs from a specific shipment of which they had prior knowledge.
The rip crew knew to be in Peck Canyon that December evening because a CI working for the FBI found out about a smuggling run from the FBI.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its own CIs and communications intercepts was also aware of the planned assault.
Neither the DEA nor FBI warned Border Patrol about the expected criminal activity.
The federal government will still not reveal if one of the two WASR-10 AK-pattern semi-automatic rifles located near the scene provided to the Sinaloa cartel via Operation Fast and Furious was the weapon that put a bullet through Brian Terrys heart. The existence of a third recovered gun, an SKS carbine, has been disputed by the FBI despite the fact it had been talked about openly in the beginning of the investigation among federal agents.
Multiple sources tell PJM that this third weapon disappeared because it was the weapon carried by the FBI CI who ran the rip crew. When it was recovered near the scene of the murder and subsequently traced by the ATF, it traced back to the FBI CI via the gun shop in Texas where it was purchased.
Brian Terrys murder was entirely preventable. The incompetence of the DEA and FBI let his Border Patrol unit walk into an ambush. After the ambush, it appears the FBI tampered with evidence to cover up that one of their informants was involved with the murder of a federal agent.
At that time. Why were they not prosecuted and why was this case not investigated fully by independent prosecutor?
I find it very odd, the entire town is corrupt to the core, yet very few ever go to jail, and those that do are generally lowly staff or those down the food chain. What’s up with that?
As you say: “the entire town is corrupt to the core”
Those not corrupted have been intimidated.
Draining the swamp will require re-establishing rule of law, and imposing consequences on wrongdoers.
It will be like a war to do it. I hope they do - but it will take a while to appoint people, and build cases. Next year, before the election would be about right, and would serve politically as well.
Few are ever held criminally responsible. And it's certainly not because crimes were/are not committed. This needs to change soon.
Personally I'm blown away they never prosecuted H. Clinton. What kind of mood do they think the people are in when Joe taxsucker is held to the letter of the law, obey or else, then the same people turn around and see the corrupt in government get away with serious felonies not to mention reckless policy and ethics issues/violations.
The level of corruption, compounded by that in your face D.C. arrogance along with their deceptive big media puppets and associates, never ceases to amaze me. Trump being elected has super exposed these people for what they are. They're lit up good! The great democrat spectacle of lies, hate and collusion.
Heads need to roll.
“Heads need to roll.”
I would think that it would take at least six to twelve months to make a case, and it would have to sprung very carefully.
Justice may still be done.
I agree. Trump is just getting started. It might have been Trump who once said, “Hillary is running for president to avoid prison”.
If Trump can’t do it, no one can.
When a Trump supporter told a The Daily Show correspondent [ if you can call him that ] about the fast n furious scandal in response to the said correspondent’s claim that there “were no scandals on Obama’s watch” [wtf?] - the correspondent LAUGHED & said “that was a movie”! Clearly distorting & leading the audience astray. I think the correspondent knew all about the fast n furious gun walking scandal but was playing dumb to keep his audience dumb. Trevor Noah himself does not seem like a dumb man [ he can speak just about all the major languages of his native South Africa ] but he plays dumb to keep his flock dumb. I wonder if he & Charlize Theron ever converse openly in Afrikaans - you know - the “language of the oppressor” despite the fact that Afrikaans is the lingua franca of the Cape & that it was the British that oppressed the locals from Zulus to Boers. Trevor Noah was “born a crime” [ notice he is now profiting off of it! ] alight but not for the reasons he thinks. Further: he was born one year before South Africa scrapped that controversial law so he is making a bigger deal out it it than he should.
What I want to know is why did it take 6 years to pick this investigation back up??
Robert Mueller was head of the FBI during this time.
Because Barky was pResident for five-and-a-half of them.
