Melson refusing to be 'Gunwalker' fall guy

Melson is, in other words, up to his eyeballs in the scandal, and cannot be holding out even the faintest of hopes that his extensive involvement is unknown (or even unproven). That means that he can be pinning his hopes of keeping his pension (and his freedom?) on only one thing: his ability to help the congressional investigation land bigger fish.

"Bigger fish," in his chain of command, would be Department of "Justice" officials senior to the head of the BATFE. There aren't very many of those between Melson and Attorney General Eric Holder. Furthermore, for Melson's ploy to have any chance of success, he needs to be able to offer something that congressional investigation leaders Rep. Issa (R-CA) and Sen. Grassley (R-IA) think can net them a bigger fish than they could land without Melson's help. [More]
