Speaking of deadlines

Along with Michelle Malkin, we wondered if the DOJ would respond to Sen. Grassley’s document request. Well, given that the DOJ has chosen to ignore Rep. Darrell Issa’s subpoena, I’d say that the answer is “no”…

The chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Wednesday criticized the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for failing to produce any documents in response to a March 31 subpoena seeking information on its handling of gun trafficking operations into Mexico.

In a letter to ATF Acting Director Kenneth E. Melson, Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican, said the committee had sought documents showing whether the agency made “reckless and inappropriate decisions” as part of its Project Gunrunner operation that “may have contributed to the deaths of both U.S. and Mexican citizens.”

Must be nice working for The One. Little things like subpoenas just aren’t the bother they are for most other people.
