Issa Issues Subpoena to ATF re Gunrunner

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:19 am



From the press release:

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform today announced the issuance of a subpoena to the Department of Justices’ Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) for documents related to the highly controversial “Project Gunrunner.”

“The unwillingness of this Administration – most specifically the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms – to answer questions about this deadly serious matter is deeply troubling,” said Chairman Issa.  “Allegations surrounding this program are serious and the ability of the Justice Department to conduct an impartial investigation is in question.  Congressional oversight is necessary to get the truth about what is really happening.”

Glad to see they’re not messing around.
