DOJ To Release Fast & Furious Documents

The Justice Department will provide Congress with documents on the botched "Fast and Furious" gun-running operation.  

Back in 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder refused to produce certain documents and was cited for contempt of Congress.  At the time, he called demands from Republican lawmakers politically motivated.  But a number of Democrats also voted in favor of having Holder produce the documents.

"Fast and Furious" was an ATF operation aimed at tracking sales of firearms to people suspected of having links to Mexican drug cartels.  Federal agents lost track of hundreds of firearms.  

Two of the weapons were later linked to the murder of Arizona Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
