In a previous article published on August 11, 2011, Conservative Examiner reported that cronyism had been uncovered involving Attorney-General Eric Holder and the law firm at which he had been a partner prior to joining the Obama Administration--Covington & Burling.
The connection was key to gaining a deeper understanding of the long-standing relationships between some of the key players in the still-developing scandal called 'Project Gunwalker'--an illegal scheme implemented by Holder's Justice Department and its bureau, the ATF, to place U.S. guns into the hands of Mexican criminals in order to 'prove' that American guns are arming the drug cartels.
It was discovered that the one common denominator among the top, central figures in the DOJ-ATF scandal and cover-up is the law firm Covington & Burling. And it was stated in the article that the firm's activities warranted further scrutiny.
Digging deeper into Covington & Burling has revealed a pattern of activity that at the very least should raise some eyebrows.
