According to Business Insider. The gun walking investigation is “creeping closer to the top of the U.S. Justice Department and its head, U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr.” A congressional report reveals that top DOJ officials new about Operation Fast and Furious.
We already know that the number two man, acting Deputy Director William Hoover, tried to close the operation down but he was “rebuffed.” We also know that a National Security Council staffer from the White House, Kevin O’Reilly, was in direct contact with Agent Bill Newell, the agent in charge of the operation. The Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Department of Treasury were also complicit. Why is it that the very attorney general wouldn’t know?
