WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has turned over nearly 500 additional pages of emails and other material to a House committee that has been investigating a controversial smuggling probe called Operation Fast and Furious for most of the past year.
Some of the latest material turned over Friday night deals with the head of the department's criminal division, Lanny Breuer, while other material deals with a top aide to Attorney General Eric Holder.
The attorney general is scheduled to appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday to answer questions from the panel chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.
