Obama Scandal News: Report Released on Fast and Furious, DOJ Official Resigns

Posted by on Sep 19, 2012 at 2:39 pm

MSNBC cannot run this report because it has not been authenticated to their rigorous standards. But Fox News can.

A major report released Wednesday on the Operation Fast and Furious scandal faulted a range of federal agencies for the failed anti-gunrunning program — and has resulted in the resignation of one Justice Department official.

Jason Weinstein, the deputy assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division, is resigning in the wake of the Justice Department inspector general report on Fast and Furious. The report essentially concludes that he is the most senior department official who was in a position to stop Fast and Furious.

So I guess that leaves Holder and Obama to walk scot-free. What a surprise.

    It’s hard to know if the chain of blame lands squarely on the desk of Holder or Obama. This resignation leaves a stench on each of them, though, especially after Holder’s stonewalling and Obama’s abetting of said masonry.
