Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-39) released the following statement today after the House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress:
"I am disappointed that House Republicans sunk this low and voted to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress. This witch hunt has nothing to do with investigating "gunwalking' and everything to do with trying to bring down Attorney General Holder and smear the Obama administration.
"Attorney General Holder went to unprecedented lengths to cooperate with Congressional investigators and provided more than 7,000 documents to Congress. This wasn't good enough for Chairman Issa and House Republicans, who refused every Democratic request for witnesses and hearings. This is partisan politics at its worst and a complete waste of taxpayers' money."
