The Examiner: Issa to CNN: ‘We’ve been lied to by DoJ’

-By Dave Workman

March 16, 2012- California Congressman Darrell Issa has evidently gotten his “second wind” and in a Thursday evening interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper regarding Operation Fast and Furious and a similar project in Texas, accused the Justice Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives of lying to Congress.

   The interview came at the end of a lengthy report on illegal gun walking that appears to have been permitted under the Obama administration in 2009 and 2010 in more places than just Arizona. It may be seen here, and this is what Issa told Cooper:

‘We’ve been lied to by the Department of Justice; we’ve been lied to by some of the ATF.’

Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, began investigating Fast and Furious more than a year ago. During that time, he has chaired several hearings, dispatched investigators to Arizona, traveled to Mexico to discuss the scandal with officials in that country, and become a burr under the saddle of Attorney General Eric Holder.
