Just in time for the hearings.
Remember this post from Monday, where Waldo advised us of the ATF SAC memo that reported:
SAC Andrew Traver confirmation process was moving forward. Expected to get a Hearing date within the next two weeks at which time SAC Traver will attend numerous briefings on the Hill and at DOJ and ATF will begin the process of getting SAC Traver prepared for the confirmation process.
The Chicago Tribune ran a story today on the Chicago Gang's fair-haired boy who they would like to see head of ATF -- Andrew Traver. The story, titled "Gun lobby stands firm in opposing Obama's ATF nominee," was mostly about the NRA's opposition, which really is the least of Holder and Company's worries.
But buried in the story is this quote, guaranteed to make the bladder sphincters of Eric Holder and Company unclamp in horror:
The top Republican on the judiciary panel is Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, whose spokeswoman, Beth Pellett Levine, said the NRA's concerns, or those of any group, should be explored at a confirmation hearing.
"Or those of ANY group."
Now what this means is that we may not have to wait for a straight-up investigation into the Project Gunwalker scandal -- we may only have to wait a couple of weeks until the Traver confirmation hearing to get some very embarrassing questions asked, and, presumably answered. Unless of course they all want to take the Fifth.
Bring yer popcorn, ladies and gents. Bring yer popcorn.
