Speaker Boehner Wants To Take Attorney General Holder To Court
Republicans seem hell-bent to pursue contempt charges against the attorney general.
In an interview aired Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” the Ohio congressman said he expected fellow Republicans to file a lawsuit in federal court following the House’s vote last week to hold Holder in contempt of Congress. That suit, he said, will likely come over “the next several weeks.”
“The American people have a right to know what happened here,” Boehner said. “Brian Terry’s family has a right to know what happened here. And the fact is that the only facts that we’ve received about this entire Fast and Furious operation came from whistleblowers and others associated with it. We got no information that helped in our investigation from the Justice Department at any point in this investigation. The American people deserve the truth.”Click here for reuse options!
