As various investigative reporters and citizen journalists continue to probe into the corruption engulfing the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, a little-publicized fact has been uncovered that sheds further light into the key players in the Gunwalker scandal--cronyism.
Many of those who are implicated in the illegal scheme to place U.S. guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels are linked to one law firm--Covington & Burling.
The law firm is of primary importance in gaining a deeper understanding of the Project Gunwalker scandal and its coverup by the Obama Administration. Attorney-General Eric Holder was a partner in the firm prior to his becoming head of the Department of Justice.
But Holder is not the only one. Lanny Breuer, the Assistant Attorney-General of the United States under Eric Holder, was also a partner at Covington & Burling. Investigators discovered in February of this year that Breuer is a central figure in the coverup of the Gunwalker scandal. Further information uncovered a series of highly questionable actions in Breuer's extensive political career, beginning with the Clinton Administration.
