Eric Holder Offers Congress “Extraordinary Deal”
Attorney General Holder wants to put an end to the “Fast and Furious” witch hunt.
In a letter to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Holder said he was prepared to make “an extraordinary accommodation” to congressional investigators by turning over internal DOJ documents to the House panel related to Fast and Furious. Holder has previously asserted that such documents are not covered by committee subpoenas.
In addition, Holder wants to meet personally with Issa by Monday to ensure they can reach a deal.
”The Department’s willingness to provide these materials is a serious, good faith effort to bring this matter to an amicable resolution,” Holder said in his letter to Issa.
