Some serious misinfo in this thread, chief of which is that Issa is asking for documents having to do with the false statement DoJ made in February 2011 to the congressional investigation into F&F and then retracted in Nov. In the first statement DoJ claimed they had no knwoledge of F&F. The evidence piled up to where they had to retract that claim. Issa wants documents having to do with who knew what and when and if the DoJ coordinated a cover up. This has nothing to do with Bush and little to do with even the ATF at this point. It's simply about whether or not high ups in the DoJ in 2011 purposefully mislead the congressional investigation.
This. I think originally they were asking for ~140,000 documents, which I admit was a bit much. However, they narrowed it down to ~8 months worth, which amounted to ~1,300 documents. I don't see this as too much to ask for, especially since we have 2 dead agents and 100's of dead Mexicans at the hands of these guns. And those numbers will rise, as there are still ~1,300 of those guns unaccounted for.
