Gunwalker: The ATF’s Kenneth Melson Blows the Whistle on the Justice Department


July 6, 2011 – 8:52 am – by PAJAMAS MEDIA’S Hans A. von Spakovsky

In a blockbuster development in the Operation Fast & Furious gun-running scandal, Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson secretly testified before House and Senate investigators on July 4 with his own personal lawyer present, former United States Attorney Richard Cullen, without the knowledge of the ATF or the Department of Justice.

On the other hand, apparently BATFE and DoJ knew rather quite a lot. “Contrary to the Justice Department’s denials, according to Melson, ATF agents specifically witnessed transfers of weapons from straw purchasers to third parties without taking any further action.

Kudos to Hans A. von Spakovsky and Bob Owens at PJM.  [Thanks gents! -Ed]

    Liars, Liars, Liars. Holder has to put up with Melson now. Can’t wait to see what happens. I just pray something does happen.
