Rep. Darrell Issa to target top Justice Department officials in next phase of “Fast and Furious” investigation

Go get them.
(Politico) — House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa says the next phase of his investigation into the “Fast and Furious” controversy will target top Justice Department officials to determine “what did they know and when did they know it?”

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” the California Republican suggested that Attorney General Eric Holder knew about the risky gun trafficking operation with Mexican drug cartels months before the time frame he acknowledged in congressional testimony earlier this year. And Issa said he would issue subpoenas as soon as this week to the Justice Department, calling elements of the program “a felony.”

Holder has denied that he was aware of the details of the operation until a couple weeks before he testified earlier this year, an assertion Issa called “disingenuous on its face.”
