Tom, you're correct. Promoting someone from within the ATF to "acting director" status is not an appointment. Congressional approval is not needed.

You're also correct that this is an implicit admission of guilt. It may be enough to mollify the Congress, in which case, the "probe" will go no further.

Sacrifice made and accepted.
