White House Denies Congress by Blocking Testimony of Willing Fast and Furious Witness

The congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious has hit another road block or should I say another White House block.

The joint investigation is headed up by Sen Chuck Grassley (R-IA), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee; and Rep Darrell Issa (R-CA) who is the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Over the past six months, they have waded through thousands of pages of documentation and interviewed dozens of individuals including US Attorney General Eric Holder.

Among the mountains of documents they climbed through were a number of e-mails from Kevin O’Reilly. O’Reilly is a former member of the National Security staff and his emails indicate that he was smack dab in the middle of what is turning into a major scandal. Grassley and Issa sent a formal request to the White House to allow them to interview O’Reilly.

According to an interview with Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) (who also serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with Issa) and Megyn Kelly with Fox News, Grassley and Issa just received a letter from Kathryn Ruemmler, White House Counsel, stating that the White House refuses to allow the interview to take place. Even though O’Reilly’s attorney has indicated that his client is willing to testify as to everything he knows about Fast and Furious, the White House is not willing to allow his to testify.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
