Fast and Furious cases moved from Phoenix

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) issued a statement Tuesday evening:

For Immediate Release
Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley made the following statement after the Department of Justice moved cases associated with Operation Fast and Furious out of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Phoenix.

“The Justice Department has finally recognized the conflict of interest with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona handling both the Terry prosecution and the Fast and Furious case.  Up to this point, the Terry family and others who have been impacted by Fast and Furious have been treated poorly by the department.  This is a step in the right direction and an overdue recognition that the cases could not be handled properly by the same prosecutors who oversaw the dangerous gunwalking strategy in the first place.”
