What's Next For The Fast And Furious Investigation

Rep. Darrell Issa made the rounds of the Sunday talk shows today. In addition to ABC's This Week, Issa appeared on both Fox News Sunday and NBC's Meet The Press. His message was consistent across all the shows - he didn't want it to come to this, he just wanted to know the answers to the questions they posed, and that the investigation would continue.

The Fox News Sunday appearance is below. It also featured Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) who is the Ranking Member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Cummings repeated the usual nonsense about this being a witch hunt.

It was a bit surprising the even NBC News has finally noticed Operation Fast and Furious after ignoring for some many months. On Meet the Press' Political Roundtable, the panel included NBC's Andrea Mitchell and David Gregory, former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Politico's Jonathan Martin, and Rep. Issa. I must admit the desire to slap the smirk off of David Gregory's face more than once in his interview with Issa. Chairman Issa is a much more patient man than I am and can handle the nonsense from some of NBC's questioners without getting riled.
