Holder: Contempt Vote Not About "Documents"

In an interview with the Washington Post, Attorney General Eric Holder said the House vote last week to hold him in criminal and civil contempt was hardly about documents, but about Republicans not liking his boss President Obama and the decisions his Justice Department has made when it comes to certain issues like DOMA, terrorism and voting rights. Holder is the only sitting attorney general to every be held in criminal contempt of Congress. Holder failed to mention it was both Republicans and Democrats who voted to hold him in contempt.

“I’ve become a symbol of what they don’t like about the positions this Justice Department has taken,” he said. “I am also a proxy for the president in an election year. You have to be exceedingly naive to think that vote was about . . . documents.”

Never mind the fact that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexicans are dead as a result of Holder's Justice Department's Operation Fast and Furious. Holder also reaffirmed he has no intention of resigning and mocked Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa.

“If anything, it made me more determined to stay and to continue to fight for the things that I think are important,” he said.

“I’ve been doing all of these things all the time Darrell Issa and his band have been nipping at my heels,” a defiant Holder said. “They’ve been nipping, but I’ve been walking.”
