The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will hold the second hearing into the BATFE Project Gunrunner/Fast & Furious operations on Wednesday. The first hearing on Monday established Congress's authority to investigate this scandal despite stonewalling from the DOJ. Cam Edwards speaks with Texas Rep. Blake Farenthold, a member of the committee, who says transparency is critical on these kinds of operations, especially since Congress is signing the checks. He also says he expects Wednesday's hearing to include very emotional testimony. Originally aired 6/14/2011.
