Today the whispers floating around Washington, D.C. among the 'inside-the-beltway' pundits concerning the Project Gunwalker case focus on former Deputy Attorney-General David Ogden, a key figure in the scandal. The rumor is that Ogden has handed over to Darrell Issa's House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform a stack of documents that not only vindicate ATF whistleblowers but confirm the guilt of the perpetrators of the scheme within the DOJ and the ATF.
One of the original Gunwalker reporters who first broke the story warns that such behind-the-scenes whispers may be a'disinformation campaign' aimed at discrediting the allegations by raising false hopes only to see such hopes dashed later on.
Such disinformation is a common practice among government elites. The Clinton Administration, for example, was quite adept at propaganda campaigns aimed at hiding truth by diverting attention to other issues.
However, Issa's committee, when asked about the veracity of the rumors, would neither confirm nor deny that they possess such documents.
If it is true that Ogden has turned over the goods, then this would represent a major turning-point in the ongoing investigation into what has become the single biggest political scandal and cover-up in U.S. history.
