In response to a question at his weekly press conference, Congressman John Boehner today called the botched “Fast & Furious” operation an “abuse of government power,” and said President Obama’s Justice Department must be held accountable. Boehner also said he continues to support the investigation by the House Oversight Committee and Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA). Watch Boehner here:

BOEHNER: “I think Chairman Issa and the members of [the House Oversight & Government Reform] Committee have done a very good job of investigating this abuse of government power. And I continue to support their efforts and believe that this Justice Department must be held accountable.”
