Here is an excerpt from the letter in which he reiterated what he wants Holder to produce:
1) All records relating to communications between the ATF and the Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) who sold the weapons to Avila, including any Report of Investigation (ROI) or other records relating to the December 17, 2009 meeting “to discuss his role as an FFL during this investigation.”HERE is a link to the entire letter. Be sure to read it because Grassley appears to be honing in on what the ATF knew about the death of another U.S. Agent - Jaime Zapata of ICE. Zapata was killed in Mexico and, like Border agent Brian Terry, he died as a result of Operation Fast and Furious.
2) All records relating to communications between ATF headquarters and Phoenix Special Agent in Charge (SAC) William Newell from December 1, 2010 to the present, including a memorandum, approximately 30 pages long, from SAC Newell to ATF headquarters following the arrest of Jaime Avila and the death of CBP Agent Brian Terry.
3) A copy of the presentation, approximately 200 pages long, that the
Group 7 Supervisor made to officials at ATF Headquarters in the Spring of
4) Copies of all e-mails related to Operation Fast and Furious, the Jaime
Avila case, or the death of CBP Agent Brian Terry sent to or from SAC
Newell, Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) George Gillette, Group 7
Supervisor, or the Case Agent between November 1, 2009 and January 31,
The detail Grassley provides in this letter is likely meant to underscore the fact that ATF agents are confiding in him in greater and greater numbers.
