Fast & Furious Cover Up?

Politico Reports:

An internal Justice Department investigation into the Operation Fast and Furious scandal recommends discipline for 14 officials, but found no evidence that the department's top leaders knew about the gun-walking aspect of the operation when it was underway.

The long-awaited report from Justice's Inspector General finds misconduct or poor judgment on the part of officials at DOJ headquarters, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives headquarters in Washington and field office in Arizona, and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Arizona.

However, the investigators found Attorney General Eric Holder didn't know about the operation until after the scandal emerged in the wake of the discovery of two weapons linked to the operation at the scene of the shooting death of a Border Patrol agent in December 2010.
