The Fast and Furious scandal happened under the Obama administration and ended in the deaths of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and several dozen Mexican citizens.

The Obama administration sold high caliber weapons to gunrunners with cartel connections in an attempt to catch leaders of drug cartels. The plan failed when then-Attorney General Eric Holder failed to keep track of the guns sold. 

What were the ramifications? A few hearings and some officials apologizing. This was enough for the media, but would that have been sufficient under a Trump administration?
