Posted on 10/04/2011 7:18:41 PM PDT by Nachum
CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been doggedly covering the ATF and DOJ scandal surrounding the gunwalking Fast and Furious case. And now shes coming out with some juicy details about her attempts to get information from the DOJ and the White House regarding the case.
On Laura Ingrahams radio show Tuesday, Attkisson said she was screamed and cussed at by the White House while trying to get information last Friday, and that a DOJ spokesperson yelled at her while she was trying to get clarification on the case. And she named names.
Ingraham: So they were literally screaming at you?
Attkisson: Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me.
Ingraham: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?
Attkisson: Eric Schultz Oh, the person screaming was [DOJ spokeswoman] Tracy Schmaler, she was yelling not screaming. And the person who screamed at me was Eric Schultz at the White House.
Why such the reaction from the spokespeople?
They will tell you that Im the only reporteras they told methat is not reasonable, she told Ingraham. They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, Im the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think Im unfair and biased by pursuing it.
You can listen to her tell the story below (the revelation initially comes at the beginning and then picks up again at the 6:00 mark):

I guess that punk learned to do that during the Al Franken and John Edwards campaigns he worked on. Figures. The WH knows this Fast and Furious thing could get really ugly for them if it keeps going down this path.
I hope someone puts together a Hitler rant on this on this story of the DOJ spokeperson Tracy Schmaler yelling at Sharyl Attkisson, and the deranged WH asst communications director Eric Schulz literally screaming & cussing at Sharyl. The Hitler rants are a GREAT FUNNY PARODY about the 0dumb0 regime & idiotic stunts.
Yep. They had to bring in a ‘Fixer’. Dirty tricks ahead...
Ignore the dead bodies.
Have another muffin Eric.
Who is the CBS anchor nowadays? Is this lady getting air time on the evening broadcast?
What a pansy faggot looking type of "guy". Ohhhh to see this pansy mugged & mugged hard leaving the WH some evening. He would deserve every punch thrown at him. I hope he gets the sh_t beat out of him!
“Reasonable” = State-controlled.
Gotta love the euphemism.
I predict that as more & more of this bungled operation AND cover-up & lying by the AG and 0dumb0's WH comes to light, that Holder will resign by end of October, and in return for his silence on implicating 0dumb0, there will be a promise of either immunity or pardon for Holder if he is prosecuted.
I remember her CNN days - had a crush on her.
Good for her! Courage, Sharyl .. God protect you.
I posted on the other Nachum “WH Screaming” thread that
the take-away and headline from Ingraham’s interview with Attkisson should have been:
7:33 Laura: Do we know the exact number [of guns] that went over to Mexico?
Attkisson: We know more than 2,000 in Fast and Furious and I will soon be reporting on the fact that that is not the only case. 2,000 for that operation according to the agents involved.
Bryan Preston picked it up here:
However, a newly discovered memo dated July 2010 shows Michael Walther, director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, told Holder that straw buyers in the Fast and Furious operation are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to the Mexican drug trafficking cartels.
Other documents also indicate that Holder began receiving weekly briefings on the program from the National Drug Intelligence Center beginning, at the latest, on July 5, 2010, Smith wrote.
These updates mentioned, not only the name of the operation, but also specific details about guns being trafficked to Mexico, Smith wrote in the letter to Obama.
*snip* "Heres the chart of guns that the administration says it didnt allow to walk to Mexico."
isn't this what was said about Woodward and Bernstein at the WAPO when they were pursuing watergate? From the WH and DOJ no less.
What do you mean?....
of course these "newspapers" are honest../s..
and these World Leaders, stand w/ Pres__ent OBama.
You left out Obama. The COMMUNITY ORGANIZER himself is the only one stupid enough to think this could work. Obama is a race baiter, a traitor, a serial liar.
Nobody but Obama himself could have ordered this operation. Add in the fact Obama is the only one stupid enough to think he could have have gotten away with it and you have the shark swimming at the top of the cess pool.
This is Obama's WATERGATE. Add in the fact that Obama not only is doing everything he can to obstruct justice, he was the man (boy) who ordered it's implementation.
And Biden will pardon him so let's wait until Sarah Palan or Cain is POTUS. Then we can imprison the clowns.
