U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney (FL-16) issued the following statement after the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee announced it will vote next week on a report holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his failure to comply with the investigation into operation "Fast and Furious":

"By willfully and repeatedly obstructing a Congressional investigation, Attorney General Eric Holder has left us with no choice but to hold him in contempt of Congress. The Attorney General has withheld information and documents, made inaccurate statements to Congress, and steadfastly refused to cooperate with the investigation into Fast and Furious and the death of Border Agent Brian Terry."
