Bob Owens at Pajamas Media outlines five possible scenarios as a result of this new bit of information. The first one is one of the most unlikely, that Melson takes the fall. The logic says he'd have done that by now if he was going to do it at all. The second is that Asst Atty General Lanny Breuer takes the fall. While Owens says this is the most likely because of Breuer's loyalty to the Democrat Party, this scandal may be too big for anyone to just 'take the fall.' Here is what Owens says about scenario #3:
3. Breuer isn’t the highest link in the chain: Melson implicates Attorney General Eric Holder.In Scenario #5, Owens says that the possibility of Melson's testimony leading directly to the White House is the 'least likely.' That means it would be less likely than Melson falling on the sword, which doesn't appear likely at all. The likelihood of this scandal reaching the White House might just be stronger than anyone's willing to admit at this point. It's that big. READ IT ALL.
Chairman Issa states that AG Holder “absolutely” knew about Gunwalker earlier than he testified that he did, and if Issa has the evidence to prove that the attorney general is part of a cover-up, then there is every reason to suspect Holder will be forced to resign, or will face impeachment.
This is a far more likely scenario than many think.
