House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) stressed that the first report into Operation Fast and Furious was “the appropriate forensic analysis of what went wrong” and the report delving into whether or not Attorney General Eric Holder was involved in any cover-up will “come later.”

Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) yesterday released the first of three reports into the botched gunwalking operation.

“We weren’t dealing with the post-discovery, the post-Brian Terry murder, we were dealing with what went wrong in the process,” Issa said on Fox News of the first report.

“As far as we know, the attorney general was AWOL. It wasn’t something where he put time or energy into it. He didn’t read the briefing. He wasn’t involved in these kinds of things,” Issa continued. “…I have no question in my mind, at some point, Eric Holder became part of the cover-up.”

However, Issa said, “as far as we can tell, Eric Holder had nothing to do with ignoring Fast and Furious.” He added that Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer is “a different story, and it’ll be in the next segment.”
