Fishy – Obama contributor Dennis Burke who helped enact assault-weapons ban ran the botched Fast and Furious operation
It was Eric Holder who in 1995 on video admitted that it was time to “brainwash” people against guns so they could ban him. Obama donor, Dennis Burke who worked for BJ Bill Clinton in the ’90s was a key player behind the enactment of the 1994 assault-weapons ban. As CNSNEWS points out, it was also Dennis Burke who ended up in the Obama regime as the U.S. attorney in Arizona and was responsible for overseeing Operation Fast and Furious.
The application for Fast and Furious was approved and, in January 2010, as Issa stated in his memo, it “became a prosecutor-led OCDETF Strike Force case, meaning that ATF would join with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service, and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement under the leadership of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona.”
In other words, it was under the leadership of Dennis Burke.
“Although ATF was the lead law enforcement agency for Fast and Furious, its agents took direction from prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” Issa says in his May 3 memo. “The lead federal prosecutor for Fast and Furious was Assistant U.S. Attorney Emory Hurley, who played an integral role in the day-to-day, tactical management of the case.”
Issa states in his memo that Burke’s U.S. attorney’s office made it more difficult for ATF agents to interdict guns.
