In a Bipartisan Vote, Attorney General Holder Found in Contempt of Congress

Washington, DC – Today, in a bipartisan vote, the House of Representatives held U.S. Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide any documents that the Department of Justice previously indicated it could and would produce. It took the Department of Justice ten months to admit that their February 2011 denial to Congress of reckless conduct was false. In addition, the Wall Street Journal has reported that the government official whose office led Operation Fast and Furious may face criminal charges for leaking sensitive information in an attempt to smear a whistleblower.
“Since the White House is now refusing to even negotiate with Congressional leaders to provide information to Congress, this contempt vote unfortunately became necessary,” said Rep. Andy Harris. “The American people and slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s family are entitled to receive the answers they deserve about what went wrong with this reckless operation.”
