    Report: Security Clearances Revoked, Criminal Charges Pending For ATF Fast and Furious Officials

    Washington D.C. - According to credible ATF sources, officials heavily involved in Operation Fast and Furious and named as partially responsible for the program's failure by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the House Oversight Committee have been stripped of their government security clearances while some have been fired, demoted, and transferred. Criminal charges are also reportedly pending.

    Former ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division Bill Newell, former ATF Special Agent in Charge of Operations in the West Bill McMahon and former Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division George Gillett have been fired while former Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jim Needles and Field Supervisor David Voth have been demoted. Hope McAllister, the lead case agent for Fast and Furious, has been put on leave and transferred out of Phoenix according to reports. McMahon and ATF came under heavy fire just a few months ago after it was revealed McMahon had been receiving ATF paid leave while pulling a six figure salary from J.P. Morgan, the same bank that owns the bureau's credit cards.

    In addition to involvement in Operation Fast and Furious, the consequences for these officials come as a result of their handling of the Jay Dobyns' arson case. All are expected to receive full retirement benefits.

    The ATF Public Affairs Division did not return calls for comment. The Department of Justice Inspector General's Office said they would get back to Townhall with a comment "sometime next week."

    logic? when we actually see some from you we'll let you know.

    if there was a republican you wouldnt even care about this situation.

    where are the WMD from the war the GOP started in Iraq? are you upset over that? that cost over 4800 US lives.

    Fast and Furious cost 2.

    wheres your wingnut logic in that?

    I guess the time and evidence of Hussein moving his weapons out of country just completely fooled you libtards. Hussein delayed long enough to move them. I remember a report about a boat in the Mediterranean sea with iraqi weapons on it.
