Text: Senator Harry Reid Says House Republicans Are Pursuing 'Witch Hunt' Against Holder and Obama Admin
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issued the following statement regarding the House vote to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress:
“Instead of focusing on jobs, House Republicans are pursuing a political witch hunt against the Obama administration and Attorney General Eric Holder. I support Attorney General Holder, who has done an outstanding job protecting our nation and prosecuting threats to our national security. The Attorney General has cooperated with the House, but it’s clear that no amount of cooperation will ever be enough for Tea Party-driven House Republicans.
Democrats are focused on creating jobs, and we certainly will not waste time in the Senate with votes or hearings on this empty, partisan crusade that does absolutely nothing to help middle class families struggling to make ends meet.”
