First, before all the cat lovers out there get upset, this has nothing to do with felines. So you can rest easy.
Back on March 4th, Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requesting information on the visit to Mexico City by Asst. Attorney General Lanny Breuer to discuss Operation Gunrunner with the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico. Frankly I missed this letter in amongst the letters sent by Sen. Grassley. Coming as it did about the same time as Sharyl Attkisson interviewed ATF Senior Agent John Dodson, it got lost in the shuffle.
While I may have missed it, Rep. Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee didn’t. His office released a letter this afternoon that he sent to Secretary Clinton asking for the same materials requested by Sen. Grassley. He also asked why she was refusing to answer Sen. Grassley. The letter included a reminder that his committee may at “any time” investigate “any matter” as set forth in the House rules.
