Darryl Issa Admits on Fox News Sunday: "We Have No Evidence That Obama White House was Involved in Fast and Furious". Are Voters Sick of Congress Wasting Taxpayer Money on Election Year Witch Hunts?
Wallace asked Issa point blank if he had any evidence that the Obama White House was involved in the Fast and Furious scandal.
Issa's response: "No". In case there's a part of "no" some readers don't understand, that means none. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Here's the exchange from the Fox News Sunday's transcripts:
WALLACE: Question: do you have any evidence that the White House officials knowingly were involved in these decisions, that they knowingly misled Congress and are involved in the cover-up?
ISSA: No, we don't. And what we are seeking are
documents we know to exist, February 4th to December, that are, in fact,
about Brian Terry's murder, who knew, and why people were lying about
it, and get to the truth. That's all we want.
Eric Holder ends up being the custodian of the documents. We would go
to the deputy attorney general just as easily if he would give us the
documents. That's all we are looking for is documents, which are
internal to the false statement and not part of the deliberative
process, you know --
WALLACE: I just want to be clear. We've got to get out. No evidence at this point that the White House is involved in the cover up?
ISSA: And I hope they don't get involved. I hope
this stays at Justice. And I hope that Justice cooperates, because
ultimately, Justice lied to the American people on February 4th and
didn't make it right for 10 months.
Issa says he is "seeking documents we know to exist" from Eric Holder. How can they "know" documents exist if they have never seen them? Doesn't this sound a lot like the search for the "real" birth certificate?
Issa's committee has spent $2.5 million on this witch hunt so far, and WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER.
As an American taxpayer, are you sick of your money being wasted on election year political witch hunts?
