    fiasco, it was revealed that the regional head of the ATF has personally sold a firearm on-line that ended up in the hands of the Mexican Cartels.

    He declined, in his Senate testimony, to say whom he sold it to.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.

      ..witness could testify to during hearings. Issa'a own man. John Dodsen
      It was a joke. Issa on his witch hunt told so many lies it was incredible how he spun that story.

      Apparently, there has been only one agent, John Dodson, who purposely, and against orders, let guns go across. Turns out Dodson is the sole witness who saw gun walking, and he reported it to Representative Darrell Issa’s House Republican Oversight Committee.
      His own witness. The only case of gun walking - and he lost the gun -  lol (ruefully)

        I wondered why those hearings dried up so fast. The agent  I referred to was George Gillett, former #2 at ATF in Phoenix.

        Gillett sold an $1100 "cop killer" hand gun, the FN Herstal, on-line to a man he refused to identify.  That gun was later recovered at the murder scene of a Mexican beauty queen.

        Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
