Clyburn Statement on Contempt Vote Against Attorney General Holder

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn released the following statement after Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

"Instead of working with the President and Democrats in Congress to create jobs for the American people, Republicans continue to play political games. Today's contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder by the Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee represents an outrageous abuse of power. Democrats in the House support proper and appropriate Congressional oversight of the Executive Branch, but House Republicans are out of control.

"I call on the Republican Leadership to put a stop to this obvious political attempt to embarrass the Attorney General and the President and intimidate the Administration. Congress needs to work with the President on important national priorities like the highway construction jobs bill, preventing a doubling of interest rates on student loans, and the American Jobs Act."
