House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has grown tired of the foot-dragging from Eric Holder’s Justice Department. On Tuesday, he fired off a scathing letter to the Attorney General, pronouncing himself dismayed that the Justice Department waited an entire year to produce “documents that provide startling new details about the involvement of senior Department officials in what appeared to be the Fast and Furious cover-up.”

By the end of the four-page letter, Issa isn’t talking about “appearances” any more:
Since the Department initially misrepresented the facts and misled Congress, it is necessary to investigate the Department’s response to our investigation. Your actions lead us to conclude that the Department is actively engaged in a cover-up. It is essential for the Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs to facilitate the production of documents we have requested so we can complete our investigation. The Department’s persistent delay tactics make this task increasingly and unreasonably difficult.
