Among the thousands of documents released by the U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday is an email from Attorney General Eric Holder about House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and the investigating into the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal.

In the email, he slammed Issa and his “idiot cronies” over the investigation, claiming that it was politically motivated.

The email chain begins with then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Matthew Axelrod explaining that Issa’s planned to subpoena a witness to testify on the scandal.

“This keeps escalating,” Gary Grindler, a DOJ official at the time, wrote.

Holder then issued his response:

“Ok. We have to be careful. His decision has to truly be his. If he testifies so be it.

Issa and his idiot cronies never gave a damn about this when all that was happening was that thousands of Mexicans were being killed with guns from our country. All they want to do- in reality- is cripple ATF and suck up to the gun lobby. Politics at its worst- maybe the media will get it.”
