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.
