Rep. Darrell Issa Admits There Is No Evidence Connecting White House To Fast & Furious Scandal

Congressman Darrell Issa is leading the investigation into the Fast & Furious ATF scandal and his committee recommended Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt charges, but he admitted to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday today that so far, there is no evidence connecting the scandal directly to the White House and Obama administration.

Wallace played a clip of House Speaker John Boehner saying that the invocation of executive privilege is “an admission” of guilt on the part of the White House. Wallace asked Issa directly if “any evidence” currently supports the claim that White House officials were at all involved with the operation or a cover-up of any kind.

Issa said quite clearly that it doesn’t, and expressed the hope that the entire investigation stays with the Justice Department and that it doesn’t turn out later on that they were involved.
