The case file concerning the Fast and Furious-spawned murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry has disappeared from federal court records.
According to the Arizona Star, all of the case information gathered by federal prosecutors is now unavailable, “apparently sealed by a federal judge.”
“Our office is handling the case and can’t comment further,” said a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in San Diego.
The prosecution of illegal alien Manuel Osorio-Arellanes for the December 2010 Terry killingwas originally to be handled by Phoenix U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke. But it was Burke’s office that meticulously directed the Arizona-based portion of the Fast and Furious gunwalking operation for Attorney General Eric Holder, advising Phoenix ATF Agent in Charge Bill Newell every step of the way in the “loss” of 2,000 firearms across the Mexican border. When Burke resigned in a fit of panic as a result of the continuing investigation of his conspiratorial Fast and Furious misdeeds by the Grassley/Issa congressional committees, the Terry case was transferred to San Diego.
And now the file is gone along with every scrap of information it contained. How many key items, how many records preserved in that file are certain to be removed and “misplaced” by DOJ lackeys at the direction of Lanny Breuer, Attorney General Eric Holder’s personal Department of Justice toady? A third rifle has already disappeared from the murder scene, and three illegals known to have been armed while accompanying Osorio-Arellanes on the night of the killing have been deported, charged only with immigration violations by the U.S. Immigration Service.
The next congressional hearing concerning Fast and Furious takes place on December 8th before the House Committee on Government Oversight. It is high time Republicans file charges against Regime operatives like Bill Newell, Dennis Burke, and Eric Holder. John Boehner must find his backbone and his voice!
