(from my FNC colleague at Justice Department / Levine)
A DOJ official says that Lanny Breuer has been “admonished” by Attorney General Eric Holder in the wake of IG report on Fast and Furious. Holder believes no further action is warranted in regards to Breuer. … The IG report criticizes Breuer for not notifying Holder about Opweration Wide Receiver, the Bush-era gunwalking investigation, when he first learned about it in 2010.
The DOJ official says Holder has decided not to take any action against Monty Wilkinson or Gary Grindler. DOJ official disagrees with the IG’s conclusion that they should have informed Holder earlier about the connection between Brian Terry’s death and Fast and Furious, and that if they had asked more questions earlier they would have had better answers ready for when Congress inquired about whistleblower allegations. The DOJ official said it doesn’t make sense to suggest that Wilkinson and Grindler would have gotten any different answers from folks in Arizona had they asked the same questions weeks earlier.
