Leak At Department Of Justice Pulls White House Deeper Into Fast And Furious

Eric Holder 13 SC Leak at Department of Justice pulls White House deeper into Fast and Furious

Last month, FOX News reported that someone at Eric Holder’s Department of Justice has been leaking information to Congressional committees about the Obama Regime’s Mexican gunwalking enterprise Fast and Furious. ATF Investigation Reports (ROI’s) that reached the offices of Senator Charles Grassley and Congressman Darrell Issa revealed gun runners and drug dealers to be secretly in the employment of the FBI.  And a Mexican illegal, already wanted on weapons charges, was shown to have been turned loose by a remarkably accommodating ATF agent.

And now something new has been added to the mix.  On March 28th, Senator Grassley wrote Kathryn Ruemmler, Barack Obama’s chief Counsel, to inform her that Congressional committees investigating Fast and Furious wanted to question Kevin O’Reilly, a former National Security Adviser to the President.

O’Reilly’s relationship to Fast and Furious first surfaced last year. Former Phoenix ATF office Agent in Charge Bill Newell admitted under questioning before Darrell Issa’s House Government Affairs Committee that he had exchanged a number of e-mails with O’Reilly at the White House concerning gunrunning operations at the Arizona border. The White House later released a carefully selected few of those e-mails intending to prove that, as Fast and Furious was not mentioned by name, the White House knew nothing of and had no part in the scheme.

But such were not the conclusions drawn by Issa or Grassley. “You didn’t get these from me” Newell prefaced one of his e-mails to O’Reilly as he laid out details of ATF plans for an upcoming press conference on border gunrunning.

Questioned by committee members as to the reason for such a cryptic warning, Newell refused to answer, ultimately stammering it meant nothing and perhaps shouldn’t have been stated at all.

Yet the White House still refuses to allow Kevin O’Reilly to be questioned by Congress. In fact, shortly after Newell admitted the ongoing correspondence, O’Reilly was shipped off to Iraq on “special assignment.”

In his e-mail responses, O’Reilly was very interested in what Newell told him of ATF operations and guns crossing the Mexican border. He asked questions and clearly wanted additional information on Newell’s progress.

Was O’Reilly the White House point man, entrusted with gathering intelligence on the day to day goings on in the gunwalking scheme? Clearly if the White House needed a “back door channel” for obtaining information on the progress of Fast and Furious, an e-mail exchange between “old friends” would provide excellent cover.

And was O’Reilly suddenly sent thousands of miles from any potential congressional subpoena because Newell’s admission before the Issa committee had revealed not only a key Administration method of transferring information, but also the keen interest of Barack Obama in the progress of his “under the radar” scheme?

Most important perhaps is the increasing value of the DOJ leak, for congressional investigators obviously received new information which prompted this sudden rebirth of interest in testimony from Kevin O’Reilly.  After all, ten months had passed since O’Reilly’s name was first mentioned, yet now a letter appears from the offices of Grassley and Issa revealing a sudden and eager interest in his testimony!

This can only mean that the DOJ leak is causing real problems for Obama and Eric Holder, making it ever more difficult to keep the lid on their deadly, Fast and Furious plot to undermine the Second Amendment. Will Republican leaders have the courage and will to take advantage of it?

    I have been wondering What happened to this investigation and where Issa was on it. I thought that possibly he had been threatened or something, and 'let it all cool down'. This is what this crooked Whitehouse Regime does when they Don't want to answer-Stall, Lie, Block the Investigation with Holder's convuluted anwers and Deny Everything. I do hope Issa STAYS on this, as it is HIS credibility that is also at stake. People (like myself) WANT ANSWERS, AND DON'T WANT TO BE HANGING OUT THERE, UNTIL OBAMA MAKES EVERYONE TIRED FROM WAITING. THIS DEAL, HAS HIS PRINTS, AND HOLDER'S "ALL OVER IT", AND THEIR LAME ATTEMPT TO TAKE AWAY PEOPLE'S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. THEY DO WHATEVER THEY WANT IN THIS REGIME, TO GET THEIR OWN WAY. THIS INVESTIGATION NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED AND GUILTY PARTIES PUT IN PRISON-NO MATTER WHO IT MAY BE.

      THAT IS ALL SOOOOO TRUE, AND JUST WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE GIVING UP, AND JUST SAYING SCREW IT, LET THE BASTARDS DESTROY WHATS LEFT, SOMEONE DOES WHAT IS NEEDED, PROBABLY NOT WITHOUT SOME SORT OF PERSONAL SACRIFICE, BUT THEY STOOD UP, AND WERE COUNTED,

      THANK GOD FOR THEM////// GRASSLEY AND ISSA, THESE PEOPLE ALL NEED SOME FORM OF RECOGNTION

    God Bless the patriot who turned over info to Congress. He or she was probably tired of the abuses of this administration toward hard working, brave individuals protecting our borders and Constitution. I hope more come forward to expose this sham of an administration. These gun schemes (more than one) were clearly meant to play into the agenda against the second amendment.

    At least Issa and Grassley are willing to DO SOMETHING about Obama's corruption. Now where are the rest of the investigators that should be stepping up over Forgerygate and his open mic commission of treason with Russia?

    Hey Americans: obummer is keeping the lid on fist-n-furious, just one of an unending list of impeachable offenses by a so-called prez, whose only activities are to campaign and as the leftist socialist he is, in his rage and vile agenda against America, to hypocrisize against and mock the true-American, conservative opposition. That list pales in comparison to the Hoax of the Millenium (HOM) pulled-off by obummer the liar on all Americans by the impostor-in-chief. Hey, obummer is hoping to keep his violations against America under the rug before Nov 2012. We WILL NOT let that happen, his perpetual smoke screen by the suppression of the truth of what is really going-on. We need more, and continuous leaks of the truth by forthright, brave Americans!

    Hey! If Expose bama were true to their title, how about posting conservative comments submitted? Or is Expose bama really being "civil", like obummer touts to be…his total ruse, sham, smoke screen, all violations against America.

    The liberal mantra is the "end justifies the means". Im afraid I have lost confidence in the American people. apparently THEY DON'T CARE! I believe most are watching American Idol or desperate housewives and don't give a Rip that we have politicians in Washington who are destroying our county. Good luck. This reminds me of Clintons impeachment. No one cares !!!!!!!
