Last week, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) claimed that the White House decision to invoke executive privilege to prevent the release of some documents related to the “Fast and Furious” investigation indicated some sort of admission of a White House cover-up. Today, pressed by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) admitted that there is absolutely no evidence to back up Boehner’s allegation:
WALLACE: Do you have any evidence that White House officials were involved in these decisions, that they knowingly misled Congress, and are involved in a cover-up?
ISSA: No, we don’t. And what we are seeking are documents that we know to exist, February 4 to December  that are in fact about [murdered Border Patrol agent] Brian Terry’s murder, who knew, and why people were lying about it…
WALLACE: I want to be clear, because we’ve got to get out, no evidence that the White House is involved in the cover up?
ISSA: And I hope they don’t get involved.
