On Tuesday, a federal judge ruled that President Barack Obama could not use executive privilege to deny Congress access to records pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, the gunrunning operation that allowed thousands of guns to cross the border into Mexico. U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama nominee to the bench, ordered the administration to release the documents.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., in response to the ruling, declared that the documents in question could implicate former Attorney General Eric Holder and his staff. “The biggest question is that Eric Holder swore he didn’t know about this a number of times,” Issa said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart. “And some of that has been proved wrong.”
Issa also weighed in on the .50-caliber rifle discovered at the hideout of Mexican drug cartel leader El Chapo, confirming that it was powerful enough to “bring down a helicopter.”
