The Fast and Furious Cover-Up

The Justice Department is refusing to release some documents relating to the "Fast and Furious" gunrunning scandal. The ones that have been released show AG Eric Holder lied to Congress during his "Fast and Furious" testimony. Republicans are asking for a Special Prosecutor. The request letter is here. The latest document drop was by CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson. She told Conservative talk show host Laura Ingrham that WH spokesman Eric Schultz called her up cussing and screaming about her "Fast and Furious report.
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. [Laura: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?] 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."
Who is Eric Schultz? He is a hired gun the WH brought in for the "Fast and Furious" cover-up?
“Eric Schultz started Monday. He will be one of three associate communications directors, alongside Kate Bedingfield and Sandra Abrevaya," said a top administration official. "Eric’s portfolio of issues will focus mainly on DOJ and other oversight-related topics.”...
Schultz is no stranger to hostile political climates. Prior to taking over at the DSCC, he handled press for Al Franken’s 2008 Senate campaign in Minnesota, including the months-long recount against former Sen. Norm Coleman. Before that, he was national press secretary for John Edwards’ 2008 presidential bid, at one point tasked with handling press inquiries relating to Edwards' extramarital affair.
