More than six years after U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed with a gun that was tracked as part of the Fast and Furious Operation, his family members are asking President Trump to unseal records from the case.
One of Terry's cousins testified before the House Oversight committee yesterday asking for clarity with the records.
The request comes as a new report from the committee details the effort by former President Obama's Justice Department to conceal the link between Terry's death and the Fast and Furious Operation.
Fast and Furios sold guns to smugglers in Phoenix so they could be tracked to Mexico, but authorities lost track of more than 1,400 weapons.
Terry's family says President Trump promised to release the records during his campaign and has yet to do so.
