Washington (CNN) – Facing a possible contempt vote by a House committee, Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday offered to release more records of a botched gun probe and proposed a quick face-to-face meeting with the committee's chairman.
In a two-page letter to Rep. Darrell Issa, Holder promised to provide documents he has so far refused to turn over, arguing they were outside the scope of the committee's investigation of the "Fast and Furious" firearms probe. The offer follows a decision by Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to narrow the committee's request to exclude sensitive law enforcement information relating to the investigation.
Darrell Issa should be disbarred and sent to prison for not doing his job when Valerie Plane was outed by Dick Cheney et al and the lie told about WMD's in Iraq to start war by none other than George W. Bush. I CALL FOR DARRELL ISSA'S RESIGNATION.
Eric Holder should remind Rep Issa...That Rep Issa is the one with a criminal history....
Darrell Issa is the epitome of Washington DC ugliness. Never before in the U.S. history have so many congressmen acted like little children when it comes to affairs of the country. If we're patient enough, we may witness "what goes around..........."
Darrell Issa, Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor destroying our economy and Middle Class
Holder is only giving in now because maybe he has already destroyed all of the evidence. If the evidence is destroyed they cannot find anything to hold against him. I would not be surprised at all if that was so.
In response to Vic.....Obama has already destroyed the economy and the middle class!!!!! So what else is new???
Mr Boehner, how many JOBS will this investigation provide for the American people?
Appears both sides blinked.
While Obama has been working to help the middle class recover from a GOP recession, the Republicans in Congress have introduced: 467 bills on Govt Investigation, 604 bills on Tax cuts for the rich, 46 bills on Abortion, 113 bills on Religion, 36 bills on Marriage, 72 bills on Firearms, AND BLOCKED THE AMERICAN JOB ACT!!
