As Expected, DOJ IG Report on Fast and Furious Says Holder Blameless

The Hill newspaper reported today that the  Justice Department Inspector General (IG) report faults ATF and four high ranking officials at DOJ for the debacle known as Fast and Furious, but says Holder knew nothing of the scheme until he received a letter from Senator Charles Grassley.

The Hill report stated that Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that fAssistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer and Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein, knew enough about the scheme that they should have raised concerns with their immediate superiors.

According to The Hill, Weinstein has resigned.

In typical cover for Holder fashion, House Oversight Committee ranking Democratic member Elijah Cummings said the report completely exonerates Holder, and took the customary swipe at the Bush Administration, blaming the gun walking scheme on the previous administration.

The IG will appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee tomorrow morning at 9:30.
