Attorney General Eric Holder is charging that he's become a "proxy" for Republican attacks against President Barack Obama in an election year.
Attorney General Eric Holder is charging that he’s become a “proxy” for Republican attacks against President Barack Obama in an election year.
Holder tells The Washington Post that Republican congressional figures have used a failed gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious to attack a wide range of administration policies.
Holder also says he feels California Republican Congressman Darrell Issa (EYE’-sah), head of a House investigative panel, is singling him out for scrutiny.”
The GOP-run House voted last week to cite Holder for contempt of Congress in a fight over documents related to Fast and Furious. Holder says it’s naive to think that vote was merely about documents. Rather, he says, he is “a proxy for the president in an election year.”
