CBS Reporter: White House Official ‘Screamed’ & ‘Cussed’ at Me for Coverage of ‘Fast and Furious
The Blaze ^ | 10/4/11 | Jonathan Seidl

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 she’s coming out with some juicy details about her attempts to get information from the DOJ and the White House regarding the case.

On Laura Ingraham’s 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 I’m the only reporter–as they told me–that is not reasonable,” she told Ingraham. “They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, I’m the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I’m 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):

Exactly! I wonder what they really are afraid of. How much did Brian Terry know? Has anyone asked his friends? Was he about to become a whistle blower? Was he set up to be murdered to silence him? If I were his parent, I would want to know.

Not thin skinned ... they are scared Sh*tless !!

At least the ‘Iran-Contra’ scandel didn’t get a U.S. Federal officer killed on American soil.

The tracks all lead up to the head of the DOJ , and into the WH .

This is NOT an ill-concieved investigation into illegal guns ,.. because there was no ability to conduct an investigation (into Mexico).
This was a bungled set-up , by U.S. officials to prove a point that US guns were being used to arm the drug gangs of Mexico, so as to curtail the 2nd ammendment rights of American citizens and firearms dealers.
It was bungled set-up because what they ( the WH and the DOJ ) did was ILLEGAL , and the tracks lead to their front door.
They armed a Foreign National (Mexican Cartel) and provided arms and ammunition to a foreign combatant , who seeks to destroy the USA .

This is a violation of their “OATH of OFFICE” , and led to the death of at least 2 Federal officers in the line of duty. The firearms used were left at the scene of the crime and are directly traceable to participation in these ‘botched investigations’ . The officials involved are therefore accessories before and after the fact , and are crimninally chargeable.

I can see why the dems might like her a whole lot, and fear her:

In July 2011, Attkisson was nominated for an Emmy Award for her “Follow the Money” investigations into Congressional travel to the Copenhagen climate summit, and aid to Haiti earthquake victims. [6] Attkisson received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2009 for “Outstanding Investigative Reporting of a Business News Story” for her exclusive investigations into TARP and the bank bailout. In 2002, Attkisson also won an Emmy Award for her Investigative Journalism about the American Red Cross.[2] In the same year, she co-authored a college textbook titled Writing Right for Broadcast and Internet News .[7] In 2003, Attkisson was nominated for an Outstanding Investigative Journalism Emmy Award for “Drugs, Money, and Safety”; reports on prescription drugs and vaccines. [8] In 2010, she received an Emmy Award nomination for her investigations into members of Congress, and she also received a 2010 Emmy Award nomination for her investigation into waste of tax dollars. [9] In 2006, she was one of a small number of female anchors covering the 2006 midterms.[10]

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.

Now that is an all time funny photo of "gangsta" Eric Holder.

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 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:

Thank you! From PajamasMedia link

*snip*

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* "Here’s the chart of guns that the administration says it didn’t allow to walk to Mexico."

Dearlord ...

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.

Calling it Obama's Watergate minimizes Fast and Furious. No one died during the Watergate break-in or cover-up. And Watergate was entirely domestic. F & F is an international crime.

Perhaps she can sympathize with the “right wing wackos” they love to report on so much now?

I wonder of she is actually disenfranchised enough now to go to a TEA party and report the reality of them .. no racism, just everyday people trying to regain our country?

NAW ... too much to ask. She will be back in love w Obama and co soon enough ..

The promise of socialism/communism is strong,
and it plays to the ego, just as the serpent did in Gen 3.

“You can be gods!”

And, you can add in “you get to feel good about yourself” to boot.
