Sen. Chuck Grassley and his staff refuse to answer any questions or give a statement to the media regarding the documented fact that the senator was actively involved in what is now being called the "Plamegate cover-up".
However, in a very odd conversation with Grassley staff members Tristan Leavitt and James Donahue, in which they changed the subject from "Plamegate cover-up" to the gun walking scandal "Fast and Furious" and its Chicago connections, Leavitt dropped this bombshell:
Sen. Grassley's investigation into "Fast and Furious" is in the civil courts, in an attempt to get information.
So, an investigation into the deaths of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, Immigration and Customs agent Jaime Zapata, and an untold number of Mexican citizens is now in civil court. Really?
In other words, Sen. Grassley's office has confirmed what we suspected:
Congressman Darrell Issa was only putting on a show for us in the Congressional Oversight Committee hearings. And, that he always intended to bury this scandal.
Here are our words for Sen. Grassley and Congressman Issa:
Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata and their families deserve better.
And, We the People are going to insist they get better.
