Coming Up on 'This Week': Rep. Darrell Issa on 'Fast and Furious'

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the man at the center of the epic stand-off with the White House and Justice Department over documents in the "Fast and Furious" investigation, speaks with ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper, Sunday on "This Week."

As the White House invoked executive privilege for the first time over the release of documents on the gun-walking operation that led to the death of a U.S. border patrol agent, Issa's committee charged forward Wednesday by voting Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, with an unprecedented full House vote on contempt possible next week.

With battle lines drawn, can any compromise be reached over the release of more documents to congressional investigators before an historic full contempt vote against the nation's top attorney? Was the White House justified in invoking executive privilege, or has it failed in its promises of transparency? Is Issa's months-long push for more documents warranted, or is the investigation a "political witch hunt" during an election year, as his critics charge?

Rep. Darrell Issa speaks out on the "Fast and Furious" stand-off, Sunday on "This Week."

Then, the "This Week" powerhouse roundtable debates all the week's politics, with Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., ABC News' George Will, National Journal White House correspondent Major Garrett, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, and Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen.

As the summer heats up, so does the veepstakes contest, as presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney winnows the vice presidential field. Who are the latest front-runners to be Romney's running mate? Plus, will major decisions next week by the Supreme Court on immigration and health care shake up the presidential race? And as President Obama and Romney address a major Latino conference this week, will their latest stances on immigration reform win over key Hispanic voters?
