The Chairman of the U-S House oversight committee is subpoenaing a top official in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Arizona over the gun running program Fast and Furious.
Critics say the investigation has become a political witch-hunt, but Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) is continuing his aggressive inquiry into the ATF program that allowed around fourteen hundred U-S guns to be sold to Mexican drug cartels. Now Issa wants to compel testimony from Patrick J. Cunningham, Chief of the Criminal Division in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona.
Flagstaff Republican Congressman Paul Gosar is leading an effort to show that the U.S House has lost confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder.
Gosar introduced the resolution of “no confidence” over Holder's handling of the gun running program "Fast and Furious." Republicans accuse Holder and senior Justice Department officials of allowing the ATF to let illegal U-S guns slip into the hands of Mexican drug cartels without tracking them. Gosar says so far twenty two of his colleagues have signed onto his proposal.
