'Something to hide?' Republicans reject DOJ explanation of Holder testimony
Fox ^ | 6/3/13 | Fox

Posted on 06/03/2013 6:07:14 PM PDT by Nachum

Republican leaders of the House Judiciary Committee on Monday accused Attorney General Eric Holder of having "something to hide," after the Justice Department issued a formal defense of his questionable testimony on reporter surveillance -- a defense Republicans rejected as inadequate.

"This response is insulting and further proof that Attorney General Holder refuses to hold himself accountable," Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., said.

Holder was facing a Wednesday deadline, set by the committee, to explain his May 15 testimony.

At the time, the attorney general said under oath he knew nothing of the "potential prosecution" of the press. Days later, it emerged that Holder was involved in his department's successful effort to obtain Fox News reporter James Rosen's personal emails -- the DOJ sought access to the documents by arguing Rosen was a likely criminal "co-conspirator" in a leak case.

Holder should have been removed when he refused to prosecute the black pampers.

Hearing from some top Hill sources that IRS scandal about to explode. Low-level agency workers miffed at being blamed. About to return fire.— Joseph Curl (@josephcurl) June 3, 2013



One source says there's a paper trail to DC, and some who were worried from the get-go kept a paper trail. Wouldn't say WH, but said 'high.'— Joseph Curl (@josephcurl) June 3, 2013

Hopefully the reporter will next be interviewing him when he’s out on the street.

After holder's gross miscomduct during the clinton years. he should have never been nominated for any position in government, let alone confirmed. But he was and the repubicans who allowed it are just as much to blame for the state of our Union as anyone in the democrat party. Every last one of them who voted for him needs to go.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise. Thanks.

What was astonishing yesterday was to hear Mara Liasson's "incompetency defense" of Holder. She said on 'Special Report' that she could reconcile Holder's two irreconcilable statements, by divining that Holder did not the ability to differentiate between what he wanted to happen verses what he said happened. In other words, he was too incompetent to understand that he was lying.

I'm sure the beltway press believes her, and thinks that we are stupid enough to believe her also.
