President Obama is spending time today on the campaign trail at a Twitter Town Hall justifying himself to voters. Even as he does this, word is coming out that his director at the Bureau of Alchohol, Tobacco and Firearms has told congressional investigators that the Department of Justice is blocking their efforts in the probe of the “Fast and Furious” operation of the ATF. This operatin is infamous for providing Mexican drug cartels with LEGAL ACCESS to American-made guns and ammo.
Ken Melson, the ATF acting director, meeting with investigators two days ahead of his planned testimony today, made the accusation. Fox News has more on the story here.
