Speaking to the congressional committee, Eric Holder gets defensive.
“That was among the worst things I’ve ever seen in Congress” Holder scolded. “There’s a whole bunch of things that I could say about what you just did, maybe this is the way you do things in Idaho or wherever you’re from, but understand something — I‘m proud of the work that I’ve done as attorney general of the United States, and looked at fairly, I think that I’ve done a pretty good job.”
“But my hope would be that we can get beyond that kind of interaction, that kind of treatment of a witness whether it’s me or somebody else because I think what you just did was fundamentally unfair, just not right,”
Why does Eric Holder have to play the victim card? There have been 150 deaths due to Operation Fast and Furious and we are looking for answers.
The family of Brian Terry has filed a $25 million wrongful death lawsuit against the federal government. They believe the government should be implicated for having allowed guns to "walk" into Mexico and ultimately be turned against Terry.
Meanwhile Attorney General Eric Holder is stonewalling congress. Perhaps that is why he is getting defensive.
The majority report charged that for “months, the [DOJ] has stonewalled Committee document requests and refused to comply with Committee subpoenas. The [DOJ] has produced scores of blacked-out pages containing no information and many duplicate documents in order to bolster its page count.”
The report asserted that the DOJ is still withholding 92 percent of the documents it has handed over to the Office of Inspector General. It objected as well to the DOJ decision not to hand over to the committee any documents created after Feb. 4, 2011.
