AP reportedly has copy of Grassley letter to ATF
One of the ATF sources involved with “Project Gunwalker” (allegations by insiders from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that bureau management allowed guns to be transported across the border into Mexico and kept the authorities there in the dark) indicates management pressure is now being brought to bear against at least one suspected whistleblower.
I am told that an agent in Phoenix has gone on record that he is cooperating with the Judiciary Committee, that the ATF office there is retaliating, and that he needs help. I am told the best way to provide that help is for the media to call Grassley’s office and then run with what they are told.
I am told Sen. Grassley’s office has sent a letter to the acting ATF Director’s office and that the Associated Press has a copy of it—so that’s a question for reporters to ask Grassley’s people, as well as their AP colleagues.

blog. They are all unwilling to proceed unless they are put directly in contact with our sources or see documentation for themselves. As they are not in a position to provide whistleblower protection, the only safe approach is for the investigative reporters to do what has been repeatedly requested of them—take all of the information provided to date, contact the Senate offices Mike and I have identified, and start confirming what they can.
