    Holder agrees to give Issa internal emails on Fast and Furious, offers to meet | Fox News


    Nevertheless, House Democrats also took aim more broadly at the Republicans' investigation of "Operation Fast and Furious," saying it "has been characterized by a series of unsubstantiated allegations against the Obama administration that later turned out to be inaccurate."

    "Rather than conducting this investigation in an even-handed manner, the committee has politicized this inquiry by systematically refusing to investigate gunwalking operations during the Bush administration and by disregarding clear evidence that contradicts (their) political narrative," the Democrats' memo states.

    One of the "most significant flaws of the investigation," according to the memo, is Issa's refusal to hold a public hearing with former ATF head Ken Melson, who told congressional investigators in July 2011 that he never informed senior Justice Department officials about the tactics of "Fast and Furious" because he didn't know them himself.
    In addition, the memo states, Issa has refused multiple requests for the committee to hear from former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, who could discuss "the origination and evolution of gunwalking operations" dating back to 2006.

    Why the display of arrogance? All Holder had to do was to comply (as the law states) with a congressional subpoena. My guess is that Holder thought the liberal mainstream media would give him some cover and Barry Hussein's invoking of "executive privilege" would put the matter to rest but it ain't hapnin.

    I am glad someone started a topic about Fast and Furious. I was beginning to think it was being ignored.

    So the head of the ATF did not know what was happening according to him ( do recall who his boss is, yes Melson is still working for Justic Department in Justice’s Office of Legal Policy ). But either way, this weeks old article means nothing. Just because Ken Melson did not tell Holder does not mean Holder was not briefed. Holder was told, as memos which have been uncovered show.
