Will Attorney General Eric Holder Be Held in Contempt of Congress?
This morning, Attorney General Eric Holder will head to Capitol Hill to testify about the Fast and Furious scandal. The hearing before the House Judiciary Committee will prove critical in determining whether House Republicans will vote to hold Holder in contempt of Congress. William La Jeunesse reports that he’s been told that such an action would happen within the next four to five weeks or it won’t happen at all.
Holder will testify today on a number of topics, the most contentious of which will be his repeated claim that neither he nor senior members of his staff knew about the operation’s tactics.
