Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-1) provides details of committee vote to find Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
Special Report: Gosar Votes to Bring Contampt Charges to Floor of Congress
Today the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, of which I am a proud member, moved forward with contempt charges against Attorney General Holder to find answers and obtain justice for the victims of the horrendous Operation Fast and Furious.
"The documents sought by the House Oversight Committee and associated with Operation Fast and Furious should be produced and turned over to the committee. Our son lost his life protecting this nation, and it is very disappointing that we are now faced with an administration that seems more concerned with protecting themselves rather than revealing the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious."

The American people and Congress have waited patiently for factual information from their Attorney General. Time is up. We are tired of the evasion. We are tired of the lies. We are tired of our elected officials and bureaucrats acting as if they are above the law. Americans deserve answers. Congress has the Constitutional responsibility and oversight to make sure that operations like Fast and Furious do not happen again. This is about making sure that future attorney generals do not act as if they are above our Constitution, above our law. We deserve accountability, transparency and justice from our leaders.
Sincerely, Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. Member of Congress
