Comments: U.S. Attorney that Ran Fast and Furious Abruptly Resigns as other Players are Reassigned

Reassigning Melson is a sign of weakness. It says, "we know that you have already flipped him, we know that we can't fire him, and now the best we can do is assign him to a backwater where he can't hurt us worse."

I'm most definitely not rooting for impeachment, I am rooting for Minitrue to actually cover this and maybe get people realizing exactly what Chicago-machine-politics is doing to our country.

"The only plausible reason Burke would have done that was an attempt to limit his own legal exposure and that of the government..."

Burke can be sued, government can not be sued. Government is immune in a court of law from the consequences of its actions.

Holder and Napolitano, along with all ATF, HLS, FBI, or DEA administrators involved in this deadly scam should face impeachment and subsequent criminal trials. IMO, BHO will escape punishment because the others will be well paid to take the heat and holder him blameless. Uncle Soros has deep pockets.

Burke has qualified immunity for any civil liability for actions taken in his official capacity. Even if he were sued successfully, which branch of FedGov would enforce the judgment?
