“Given the gravity of this matter, this refusal is simply unacceptable,” reads the letter from Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).

Issa is acting in concert with Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa). On March 4, Grassley requested information from the State Department involving then-U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Carlos Pascual’s meetings with Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, Mr. Breuer’s deputy, and other officials in Mexico City in the summer of 2010 regarding “on-going investigations” related to Project Gunrunner and its Fast and Furious component. However, the State Department has not provided any of the requested materials.

“This refusal is mystifying in its own right” and “stands in stark contradiction to the promise of transparency promoted by President Obama,” reads the Issa letter. He is now asking for the information as well. “Additionally, please explain in detail the reasons behind your refusal to answer the Senator directly.”
