Rep. Darrell Issa Says DOJ Is Playing Politics By Releasing Indictment Charging 5 With the Death of Brian Terry
Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Darrell Issa, reacted to the breaking news that the Department of Justice plans to unseal the indictment charging five men with the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
Rep. Issa told Megyn Kelly, “I applaud what they’re doing, but I condemn the timing. It’s very clear that the timing has everything to do with the House of Representatives holding Eric Holder in contempt for not turning over information.”
He continued, “The Terry family should have seen this attempt to go public and to try to get the murderers of Brian Terry, they should have seen it happen a year ago. For 18 months they’ve known
and haven’t done everything they could do to capture these individuals. Very clearly, this is another example of using politics over good policy.”
The chairman reiterated that he applauds the fact that this is going public in order to make it clear that the men charged are among America’s and Mexico’s most wanted, but he adds, “at the same time, the timing is very dubious.”
