House Republicans released a report Wednesday and “formally accused” Attorney General Eric Holder of misleading Congress with his “deceptive” testimony back in May, Fox News reported.
After reporting their findings, lawmakers sent a letter to President Obama saying they have “grave concerns” about Holder and called for a “change in leadership” at the Department of Justice.
Holder, testifying before the Judiciary Committee on May 15 on DOJ leaks investigations, said he “knew nothing” about the “potential prosecution” of Fox News reporter James Rosen, when actually, it was reported later, Holder himself approved the warrant for Rosen’s email communications.
“With regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something that I have ever been involved, heard of, or would think would be a wise policy,” Holder then testified to the Judiciary Committee.
However, a House committee investigation concluded Holder’s testimony was “deceptive and misleading.”
Translation: Holder lied under oath, which -- last I checked -- was a crime.
I'll believe the House is serious when they act serious. Schmucks.
