FROM ISSA AND GRASSLEY, more ATF gunrunning bombshells.

The most impressive revelations are of data that Acting Director Melson gave them. ATF was ready to cooperate until it was gagged by the Deputy Attorney General. They informed the Deputy AG that they had documents that contradicted the “official story” Justice was giving out. A memo describing an important meeting — held to convince a cooperating gun dealer who was getting worried about allowing all these suspicious gun buys — was actually written over a year later, after the controversy broke. Melson says there is a memo that is a “smoking gun,” which Justice is still refusing to reveal to the Committee.

This is the hottest political story since Watergate … and of course (with a few exceptions) the MSM is ignoring it.

Well, Watergate involved a Republican, you know.
