As House Committee Schedules Contempt Vote On AG Holder, Ros-Lehtinen Supports Effort & Says That Holder Hasn't Been Forthcoming Nor Cooperative In Fast & Furious Arms Scandal

Statement

Location: Miami, FL

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the contempt vote next week in the Oversight & Government Reform Committee on Attorney General Eric Holder. Ros-Lehtinen supports this effort and believes that AG Holder has not been forthright nor cooperative in the investigation into the gun peddling scandal, "Fast & Furious."

Ros-Lehtinen statement:

"I support the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's vote to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress. Mr. Holder has not been forthcoming nor cooperative in the Committee's efforts to find out what exactly occurred with the disastrous "Fast and Furious' program that put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

"Fast and Furious' also led to the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was killed by a weapon lost in this failed operation. His family is looking for justice to be served and asking for those responsible to be held accountable.

Mr. Holder continues to stonewall Congress about this operation. This is a serious charge, and the Justice Department must come clean."
