Issa Is Not Finished With Fast and Furious Just Yet

September 5, 2012
Congress will be headed back to work next week, and if you thought Republicans were done pressing hard over the Fast and Furious gun-running scheme, you thought wrong.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa announced that Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be testifying on the case before his committee on Sept. 11. Horowitz will testify following the release of his report on the Fast and Furious gun running scheme.

The House voted in June to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over requested documents related to the case, and the House Oversight Committee filed a civil lawsuit against Holder during the August recess as part of an effort to get him to turn them over.

In a statement released Tuesday, Issa continued to press on Holder:

"For a year and a half, Attorney General Eric Holder has cited the ongoing Inspector General investigation as his reason for declining to hold those responsible for reckless conduct in Operation Fast and Furious to account.  Next week, this excuse for delaying action ends."
