No, this leak was germane to the question of how the DOJ came to lie to Congress about gunwalking and then to stand by that increasingly implausible lie for ten months before withdrawing it.
It seems a subject of legitimate interest to Congress. Their oversight should include the operation itself and the ensuing coverup, perhaps especially the coverup part.
In the days leading up to the contempt votes against Eric Holder, the focus of the Congressional investigation was being narrowed to the subject of how the DOJ came to lie to them, but failing to investigate that subject was never on the table and should not be.
