Black's Statement on House Vote to Place Attorney General Holder in Contempt of Congress

Congressman Diane Black (R-TN) released the following statement today in support of the House voting 258-95 to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his failure to comply with investigations into the failed "Fast and Furious" operation:

"Attorney General Eric Holder has deliberately misled Congress and stonewalled the investigation into Fast and Furious. The family of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry deserves answers and the American people have the right to know the truth.

"Mr. Holder had every opportunity to comply with the requests made in the oversight investigation of this ill-conceived gun walking scandal, but he has refused to cooperate time and time again. Executive privilege does not justify obscuring the truth and obstructing justice. It is incredibly disappointing that the President and many in his party are not interested in getting to the bottom of this tragedy so that something like this never happens again."
