Nothing to see, move along peons!

In an unusual arrangement, a senior official of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives involved in the controversial gun operation Fast and Furious is receiving his government salary while working full time for the investment bank J.P. Morgan, according to two Republican lawmakers.
In a letter Tuesday to B. Todd Jones, the acting ATF director, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said that Deputy Assistant ATF Director William McMahon, who oversaw the agency’s Western region during the Fast and Furious operation, has been receiving two salaries simultaneously.
The lawmakers said the ATF apparently approved allowing McMahon to remain on paid leave for four or five months while working for the investment bank in order to reach retirement eligibility.
** Right now their current narrative is that he was merely doing it for retirement. But if history taught us anything, it's that when weapons, CIA, DEA, ATF and banks cross paths in an unholy statist orgy, you know you're looking at bits and pieces of intel black ops narco trade; where there's a drug cartel, there's a Wall St. bank laundering their BILLIONS. And, where there's Wall St. laundering FRN's, there's always a whole bunch of govt commissars on the take.
Nope, these aren't the droids you're looking for...
