Obama/Holder busted, Wiretaps in Fast and Furious show high involvement in by the Obama Administration and DOJ.
A House investigative committee said Tuesday it has obtained new
information from wiretaps related to the Obama administration’s
Operation Fast and Furious that suggests high-ranking officials know
more than they are telling Congress about the flawed weapons sting.
The announcement appears to be the latest attempt by GOP Rep. Darrell
Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee,
to press U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder into providing Congress with
more information about the operation and an account of which officials
knew about any problems -- and when.
“The wiretap applications show that immense detail about questionable
investigative tactics was available to the senior officials who
reviewed and authorized them,” Issa said in a June 5 letter to
Holder. “The close involvement of these officials -- much greater than
previously known -- is shocking.”
