    The Evil men can do, and often get away with. Very sad.


    The IG report on Operation Fast & Furious has been released, but the scandal is far from over. The report raised more questions that need to be answered. The White House did not produce any internal communications and a member of the White House National Security staff declined an interview with the IG.

    Kevin O’Reilly, an official with the White House National Security Staff, communicated with Special Agent-in-Charge William Newell in 2010 about Fast & Furious. The Oversight Committee has been trying to get Mr. O’Reilly to testify, but he told Chairman Darrell Issa he would plead the 5th.

    "Newell told us that he did not have direct contact with the White House other than through O’Reilly," said the report. "We requested from the White House any communications concerning Operation Fast and Furious during the relevant time period that were sent to or received from (a) certain ATF employees, including Special Agent in Charge Newell, and (b) certain members of the White House National Security Staff, including Kevin O’Reilly. In response to our request, the White House informed us that the only responsive communications it had with the ATF employees were those between Newell and O’Reilly. The White House indicated that it previously produced those communications to Congress in response to a similar request, and the White House provided us with a copy of those materials.”

    The White House claims they produced documents before, but this is false...

    The level of corruption peeking it's head out under this Administration is staggering. The news yesterday that the Obama WH coordinated with Media Matters on misleading the American public as to news and facts regarding this cover-up sounds sooo much like WATERGATE.

    Yeah, a couple of Holder's lackeys fell on their swords today. Looks like he's gonna skate. It's an awful travesty for sure.

    So basically, the DOJ-run investigation came to a close, saying everyone is to blame except Holder, a few DOJ lackeys, who were selected to take the beating, got the boot and now, 24 hours later, we learn the truth: Lots of stalling and not a lot of cooperation
