Gunrunner: ATF official resigns after being named in Darrell Issa’s Congressional report on Fast and Furious
Earlier this week Darrell Issa released his Congressional report which named five people who were responsible for the Fast and Furious debacle and today we learned that an ATF official named in that report, William Hoover, has resigned. The remaining four should follow his lead and resign as well. When that happens it will be a good start, but it should only be the beginning.
When Barack Obama declared executive privilege and sealed the documents Darrell Issa has been requesting for over a year –which most likely indict Eric Holder and possibly Barack Obama–for all intents and purposes the path to Eric Holder was blocked for good. However, now that five officials have been named there is still a glimmer of hope because as these rats desert the ship maybe one of them will decide it is time to protect himself so the possibility remains that one of them will not be willing to take the fall for Eric Holder.
At this point our only hope is that one of these lawless individuals, either guided by conscience or a desire to protect himself, will flip on Eric Holder and tell Darrell Issa what is contained in those documents. It is now time for Darrell Issa to threaten these five individuals with civil lawsuits if they do not cooperate and I hope that just one of them will do the right thing and partially right a grievous wrong, anything less will be a miscarriage of justice.
