Fast And Furious Fallout-Congressman Demands Resignation At Justice Department
Senator Charles Grassley, (R-Iowa) called for, actually demanded, the resignation of a top White House official over the Fast And Furious gun running program.
Grassley, in a furious speech in Congress, called for Lanny Breuer to step down. Breuer is one of Attorney General Eric Holder's top aides, and in charge of the Criminal Division of the Justice Department. Grassley is the latest, and highest ranking, government leader to call for a complete top to bottom investigation of Holder and the Justice Department over the botched program. F&F was supposed to 'allow' guns to be illegally obtained by drug cartels so they could be trackedl; ATF and Border Patrol would then use the 'chain' to lead them to the top of the cartels, arresting drug lords and confiscating drugs and the guns. It didn't work out that way, and dozens of illegal guns have now been linked to crimes along the border, and the death of a Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry. Grassley said it's time for accountability at all levels of Justice, according to Fox News.
