With the showdown between top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sec. Janet Napolitano heating up, Napolitano has dispatched a 21-man team to respond to Issa’s document and testimony requests, a DHS source says.....The team includes 15 lawyers and six “support staff” who have logged over 600 hours working to find documents and review them before sending more than 3,000 pages to Issa, the source says.

Issa is requesting documents from DHS about political interference with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the agency....Tuesday, Issa subpoenaed the testimony of two key career officials at DHS, the first time Issa is using the force of law to compel information from the Obama administration since Republicans took control of the House.

Issa spokesman Kurt Bardella said the oversight panel chairman’s concern was not with the pace of the document delivery, for which the 21-man team has been dispatched, but with the agency’s reluctance to allow key officials to conduct transcribed interviews......“Our issue is with the interviews,” Bardella said.

Still, the 21-man team shows Napolitano, after initially snubbing Issa on his first two deadlines for the release of documents, has put significant resources into cooperating with newly empowered House Republicans.

More like she's going to remove whatever he's looking for before he gets it and preparing to stonewall with a mountain of paperwork from these taxpayer sponsored lawyers on the rest of it.
