ATF GUNRUNNING SCANDAL UPDATE: Gunwalker: The ATF’s Kenneth Melson Blows the Whistle on the Justice Department. “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. . . . 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.” Read the whole thing.

UPDATE: Reader Christopher Tolley writes: “My take is that the MSM will excoriate those viciously partisan, shoot-from-the-hip, renegade Republicans, Issa and Grassley, for obtaining Melson’s testimony in ‘secret’, and ignore the substance of what Melson actually said.”
