Fast & Furious Investigator Darrel Issa calls for Special Prosecutor

Category: Border Security, Crime, Gun Stuff, Homefront, Politics | Comments Off on Fast & Furious Investigator Darrel Issa calls for Special Prosecutor



Darrel Issa complained in a conference call that, “there is ongoing cover up of a pattern of wrongdoing that can’t be explained by any ordinary people (who tried) to do the right thing but made a mistake.”

“Even though I have subpoena ability, I don’t have the ability to lock people up for contempt until they fess up and give us what we want,” Issa said.

A special prosecutor would have such powers, and would be independent of the government agencies that were responsible for creating and attempting to cover up details of the program.

“We were happy to see the U.S Attorney’s office in Phoenix relieved of these prosecutions so we could have somebody not tarnished in creating the problem also in charge of prosecuting,” Issa said, referring to last month’s news that U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke was pushed out. “But yes, we’d like to have a true special prosecutor on this.”

For those who have not been tracking the Fast & Furious story, several agencies in the Obama administration worked together to instruct Arizona firearms dealers to sell over 2,000 firearms to straw purchasers making buys for Mexican cartels.  These firearms have been traced to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, 11 U.S. Citizens and as many as 200 Mexican nationals.  There are also reports of illegal arms sales coming out from Indiana, Florida and Texas.

The Department of Justice has been slow in it’s responses to the investigators, and has turned over “evidence” that has been heavily redacted – page after page of blacked out papers.
