Issa says Justice Department IG report does not clear Holder

Hours after the Justice Department Inspector General released its findings on the department’s handling of the Fast and Furious operation, House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Wednesday that the report does not clear Attorney General Eric Holder.

In an interview with Fox News’s Bret Bair Issa said, “Just because you’re not convicted doesn’t mean you're vindicated.

“Attorney General Holder didn’t ask the questions, didn’t read the memos and up-and-down the chain the people that worked for him, the political appointees responsible to him failed to do their job,” Issa said.
