High-Ranking DOJ Official To Resign Amid Fast And Furious, Virgin Islands Bribery Scandals

April 29th 2012   ·   25 Comments

US Department Of Justice Seal SC 300x300 High Ranking DOJ official to resign amid Fast and Furious, Virgin Islands bribery scandalsU.S. Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich plans to resign his position soon,as two different scandals rage on in which he has provided allegedly misleading information to Congress.

Weich,who has served as Attorney General Eric Holder’s emissary in congressional communications,will become the next dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law in July,according to the National Law Journal.

The DOJ official is the same Holder deputy who falsely told Congress that neither the Bureau of Alcohol,Tobacco,Firearms and Explosives nor any part of the Department of Justice ever allowed illicit firearms to “walk” across the U.S.-Mexico border — even as contrary facts emerged from the investigation into Operation Fast and Furious.

On Feb. 4,2011,Weich wrote to Congress that the idea that “ATF ‘sanctioned’ or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to a straw purchaser who then transported them into Mexico … is false.”

“ATF makes every effort to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally and prevent their transportation to Mexico,” Weich added in that letter.


Yes, U.S. Open Borders,

Stands with you to Secure Our Border. President Obama and the federal government has failed to do its job so we must stand united to protect America!

  3. David Wear says:

    Holder should resign and place himself in PRISON !!!

  4. at least finger holder before you go,

  5. Pam M N Ward says:

    Illegal activity by any governmental employee is always open to a court case and circumstances: sentencing and jail time. Time is on Truth’s side. Truth always prevails – it is just a matter of time. Have faith in Freedom which carries the torch of Truth at all times !!! Any bondage always becomes broken and the adversaries always want to jump ship . . . watch what happens to the current administration as we get closer to Election Day especially as more Truth unvails !

  6. Jamie Kelso says:

    Holder should have been gone a long time ago!!

  7. Marie Boccia says:

    The dems are running in circles! How do we keep everything in order until the election?

  8. Now Holder must way or another..on his own or FIRED!!

    • english says:

      Mdm Hillary Clinton is directly involved as her rep was at the planning meetings. It was part of her agenda and Holders to promote a UN treaty banning personal guns… they just needed to make a case so they promoted the Fast and Furious operation. It does not stop with Mde secretary, either.

  9. Louis Joseph says:

    One more down, now to get rid of Holder!

  10. Denis Blake says:

    One down and how many more to go. The one that needs to resign or be removed is HOLDER. He is the MOST corrupt attorney general this country has ever seen.

  11. Bill Wall says:

    He’s one of holder’s dominos!!! How many more will he “throw under the bus” to keep this job??? Hopefully Congress will not fold until his head is in the noose, and his feet are frantically searching for solid ground!!!

  12. He’s not the one who needs to resign!! But you know Holder and Obama will never take responsibility for this. Surprised they aren’t blaming GW for this like they do everything else.

  13. The ENTIRE DOJ needs to resign … and start all over without any Communists involved.

  14. if you break the law; dont you go to trial and are punished if found guilty? you just dont get to resign and that be the end of it. oh my bad! these guys are above any laws.

  15. Rita Mercer says:

    Should be Eric Holder resigning too!

  16. I hope the mf squeals like the pig he is…

  17. Darn. I got excited and hoped it was Eric Holder. Hope he goes to jail instead.

  18. take it right to the top, they can all resign.

  19. millie says:

    This is like a nest of Rattle Snakes ! They are all Liars and the real truth will never be know. There is so much finger pointing and cover up!
    That is how our Govt. works, in today’s world !
