From the Examiner.
National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea and blogger Mike Vanderboegh are reporting today that new Justice Department whistleblowers have come forward seeking safe haven in the Fast and Furious scandal.
Sources close to the ongoing investigation have indicated that at least one and potentially two officials inside the Department of Justice in Washington have contacted U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., to request that they be given whistleblower protection in light of new information they wish to reveal.
The two whistleblowers are subordinates of Attorney General Eric Holder, one of whom was said to possess information so damaging that it represented the “keys to the kingdom.”
Issa chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which is investigating the Fast and Furious scandal.
……The news of the two new whistleblowers is major, according to Vanderboegh and Codrea. Prior to today the only persons who were willing to come forward with insider information on the scandal were confined to the Phoenix field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
Whistleblower ATF agents risked their careers, reputations, and even their very lives by coming forward with details on the scandal in which the Obama Administration deliberately placed 2,500 guns into the hands of Mexican criminals in an attempt to “prove” the false meme that American guns are fueling the violence south of the border.
Holder retaliated against ATF agents John Dodson and Vince Cefalu for bringing to light the reckless operation. Dodson was smeared with leaked memos and Cefalu was fired. On the other hand, those who actively participated in the gunrunning were promoted.
Obama and Holder have covered up and obstructed justice throughout this entire investigation. Not only that, but there’s evidence that Holder intended to use the gunrunning operation as a political maneuver against the 2nd Amendment.
I can hardly wait for the new whistleblowers to testify before Congress. Obama, Holder, Napolitano, and the rest of the cohorts who authorized this felony should have their ass in a sling.
