The Department of Justice announced today that it had entered into a conditional agreement with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to release the documents it has been withholding for six years related to Operation Fast and Furious.
From the DOJ release:
Today, the Department of Justice entered into a conditional settlement agreement with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and will begin to produce additional documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. The conditional settlement agreement, filed in federal court in Washington D.C., would end six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce documents requested by the Committee.
In announcing the settlement, Attorney General Sessions said:
“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”
It is a shame that Mike Vanderboegh did not live to see this after all the effort he and David Codrea put in to getting the story out to the public.
