It seems that Attorney General Holder could be held in contempt of Congress by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee for failing to provide documents requested by Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) in his investigation of the bungled Operation Fast and Furious.
In one of the most underreported news items of the year, the administration stands accused of stonewalling the probe into the operation, in which American guns as part of a sting were provided to Mexican drug cartels – but the guns ended up being used to kill an American border agent.
Holder and President Obama say they didn’t authorize the operation, and Obama says he didn’t even know about it. Issa wants to know exactly who knew what and when. Here’s some video on the issue from Fox.
Can you imagine the coverage of this if it were the Bush administration??
H/T to Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air, where I first saw this.
