Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to face a congressional subcommittee to delve deeper into his knowledge of the "Fast and Furious" gun operation.
Holder will appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 8. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), a Judiciary Committee member and head of the House Oversight Committee, issued Holder a subpoena to appear, to explain when he was aware of ATF's operation.
Holder initially testified, in May, that he only first heard about Fast and Furious a few weeks before. Earlier this month, CBS News reported that documents and memos indicate Holder had been sent multiple briefings mentioning Fast and Furious in 2010.
Holder later explained in a letter to Congress that he didn't read those memos, and that nobody at the Justice Department who knew of Fast and Furious was aware of the specific "gunwalking" tactics used.
