AG and Issa to meet on Operation Fast and Furious

WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder wants a House panel to drop plans to try to hold him in contempt of Congress, and the panel's chairman wants more Justice Department documents regarding Operation Fast and Furious, a flawed gun-smuggling probe in Arizona.

Holder and Rep. Darrell Issa, a California Republican, scheduled a private face-to-face meeting in the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday in an effort to resolve their dispute over the investigation of Fast and Furious by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that Issa chairs. The committee was scheduled to vote Wednesday on a contempt citation against the attorney general for failing to turn over subpoenaed documents.
