Examiner: Did he ever ask you to ease up a little bit? Issa: No. The speaker has asked me to work with other committees, and I have. He’s asked me to sort of work on a timeline that allows the other committees a little bit to do — that kind of coordination. He’s never asked me to abandon an investigation. He’s never shut me down.
I happen to know that that is a lie when it comes to the FBI participation in the Fast & Furious scandal. Boehner shut that down damned quick, according to my sources. Also according to my sources, Boehner was blackmailed by the FBI to achieve that result.
