The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted Wednesday to find Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his ongoing refusal to fully cooperate with the ongoing probe into the botched “Fast & Furious” operation.
In the intervening days, both Holder and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney have insisted that the Justice Department turned over all “relevant” documents.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi further alleges that this is all a Republican “scheme” to distract and discredit Holder, the man tasked with stopping GOP voter suppression efforts in this year’s elections.
We get reaction from Oklahoma Rep. James Lankford, a member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He also defends his committee vote and explains why it was necessary.
