Gunwalker reaches White House

Given how many people knew about Gunwalker, it seemed extremely unlikely that the White House didn’t know, but now we have confirmation:

At a lengthy hearing on ATF’s controversial gunwalking operation today, a key ATF manager told Congress he discussed the case with a White House National Security staffer as early as September 2010. The communications were between ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix office, Bill Newell, and White House National Security Director for North America Kevin O’Reilly. Newell said the two are longtime friends. . .

It’s the first time anyone has publicly stated that a White House official had any familiarity with ATF’s operation Fast and Furious.

Recall that Eric Holder’s chief of staff was also informed. The separation between Gunwalker and the principals is getting very small indeed.
