Congress, DOJ To Meet On Operation Fast and Furious

WASHINGTON -- Lawyers for the House and the Justice Department say they will meet to try to resolve a lawsuit over congressional efforts to get records related to Operation Fast and Furious, a bungled gun-tracking operation.
The lawyers told U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Tuesday that the two sides would prefer to meet without the assistance of the court. Jackson scheduled another status conference in the case for Jan. 10.
In the dispute, President Barack Obama has invoked executive privilege. Attorney general Eric Holder has been found in contempt of the House for refusing to turn over records that might explain what led the department to reverse course after initially denying to Congress that federal agents had used a controversial tactic called gun-walking in the failed law enforcement operation.
