Special Prosecutor for Gunwalker Scandal to Come from Holder's DOJ?

Congressman Darrell Issa's committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, which is investigating the Project Gunwalker scandal, will hold at least two more hearings on the issue--one in October and another before the end of the year. The Congressman has stated that he wishes to appoint a special prosecutor but that he will not do so immediately, so that more evidence can be gathered. When the time comes for the prosecutor to be appointed, Issa faces a monumental problem--the attorney chosen to prosecute the case will come from Eric Holder's DOJ--the Department of Justice.
The DOJ is the very organization being investigated for possible criminal activity. To appoint a special prosecutor who normally is a U.S. Attorney working under the Attorney-General is tantamount to the DOJ prosecuting the DOJ--a scenario taylormade to insure that the cover-up is complete and that no one is held accountable.
Such a move would be akin to the Gambino crime family being chosen to prosecute John Gotti.
