U.S. House of Representatives' lawmakers on Wednesday evening subpoenaed the scandal-prone Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for "any and all documents" related to that agency's alleged misconduct in a national undercover operation including its activities in Operation Fearless Distributing.


Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the current chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sent ATF's director the committee's subpoena because of the ATF’s lack of transparency in its nationwide storefront sting operations and its alleged stonewalling of a probe into accusations of misconduct and abuse by the agency responsible for enforcing federal gun laws.


According to the subpoena's cover letter and news reports, agents with the ATF carried out storefront sting operations throughout the country and allegedly "utilized deplorable tactics including exploiting mentally disabled individuals to generate business and later arresting them, setting up storefronts near schools, and even losing high-powered firearms.


“After more than a year of promised cooperation, multiple letters to you, and several unfulfilled document requests, I have no choice today but to issue the enclosed subpoena to compel the production of documents relevant to the Committee’s investigation,” Chairman Issa wrote in his cover letter to ATF Director B. Todd Jones.
