Congressional investigators digging into Operation Fast and Furious have, for the first time, asked a senior White House official for documents and communications regarding the gun-walking scandal. In a Friday letter to President Obama’s national security adviser Thomas Donilon, House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa and Senate judiciary committee Ranking Member Sen. Chuck Grassley requested all records and communications involving three senior Obama administration officials regarding Fast and Furious and gun trafficking cases in Phoenix, Ariz.
Issa and Grassley also requested copies of all communications those three officials had with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) field personnel in Phoenix.
