Issa: No Evidence of Cover Up

Going after the attorney general is one thing. Implicating the president, Congressman Darrell Issa said in an appearance on Fox News Sunday, is something else. Responding to a comment made by House Speaker John Boehner, Issa said there is no evidence to suggest that the White House attempted to mislead lawmakers regarding the Department of Justice’s bungled Fast and Furious gun-walking probe. “I hope this stays at Justice,” said Issa, who is head of the House oversight committee. “And I hope that Justice cooperates, because ultimately, Justice lied to the American people.” Last week, Issa’s committee recommended a contempt citation for Attorney General Eric Holder.
