Bartlett Comments on the Resolution Holding Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

"President Obama's claim of Executive Privilege to deny Congress copies of documents related to the Fast and Furious gun smuggling operation inevitably raises questions about what President Obama knew about what's in those documents and when he learned about them. What remains unchanged is that cover ups only make matters worse and lessons can't be learned if mistakes aren't confronted." said Congressman Roscoe G. Bartlett.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Res. 711 a resolution recommending that the House of Representatives find Eric H. Holder, Jr., Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice, in contempt of Congress for refusal to comply with a subpoena duly issued by the committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The bi-partisan vote was yeas 255, nays 67 and one voting present.
