Jason Chaffetz: “We’re looking at considering holding the attorney general in contempt.”
Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican congressman, is criticizing Eric Holder for his handling of Operation Fast and Furious.
According to the Daily Caller:
“The attorney general has not been candid and forthright in providing documents to the United States Congress as he is required with the subpoenas,”
“The Inspector General at Department of Justice had access to nearly 80,000 documents yet the United States Congress has only received about 6,000 documents”
“We think he is in violation of his subpoena and we’re getting to the point where our frustration has gone beyond the point of reason and you know we’re looking at considering holding the attorney general in contempt.”
TheDC points out another milestone… The first time a Democrat did not openly support Holder. Oklahoma’s Democratic representative Dan Boren’s spokesperson had “no comment” when asked if they had confidence in Holder.
