Secret recording: ATF agent suggests digging up dirt on Sen. Chuck Grassley to help forestall Gunwalker investigations

Doug Ross

I think this seals the deal. When Pulitzer Prizes are awarded next year, CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson should walk away with the investigative journalism award for her work exposing Eric Holder’s disastrous “Gunwalker” program.

Gunwalker’s fatally flawed “Operation Fast and Furious” intentionally allowed drug cartels to smuggle military grade weapons into Mexico where have they since been found at dozens of crime scenes — including some in the United States.

Secret recordings made just weeks after CBS broke the story in legacy media (thanks to Sipsey Street Irregulars and other new media outlets) strongly suggest that Attorney General Eric Holder was fully aware of and approved the operation…

…Agent: That’s kind of what my suggestion but nobody thought that was funny like if I were a P.I. I’d put him on Grassley, I’m sure there’s a lot would go away. Actually my one suggestion was just tell him in a registered Republican. I’m sure if he knew that everything would be fine, they didn’t like that either.

Did I just imagine this, or did an ATF agent suggest having a private investigator tail Chuck Grassley, presumably to dig up dirt on the Senator and thereby forestall further investigations through, ahem, blackmail?

There’s more Fast and Furious audio at CBS News.
