Drug War - Fast and Furious: Gunrunning Informant Used Taxpayer Money To Buy Drugs, Possibly Guns, Lawmakers Allege | Fox News

Fox News: "Congressional investigators are confronting the Justice Department about evidence they say indicates an FBI informant used U.S. taxpayer money not only to buy drugs but also possibly to buy guns for the Sinaloa cartel.

...The informant first received at least $3,500 in official law enforcement funds as payment for illegal narcotics, according to a letter Tuesday to Attorney General Eric Holder from Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley. Issa and Grassley, who don’t elaborate on the nature of that payment, say the informant then became the "financier" for a firearms trafficking ring while cooperating with the FBI and receiving "additional payments as a confidential informant.""
