As chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Issa has been investigating the agreement and Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez’s involvement.
Perez has been nominated to serve as secretary of Labor and another person involved in the agreement, U.S. Attorney for Minnesota B. Todd Jones, has been nominated to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
Issa has asked the DOJ for copies of nearly 1,200 documents that he alleges explore the details of whether the agency’s deal was politically motivated or violated any federal laws.
