Congressman Gosar Responds to Breaking News of More Department of Justice Lies
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S (R-AZ) released the following statement regarding new documents that show senior Justice Department officials had information about the tactics used in Operation Fast & Furious, even though they previously denied such involvement.
“Every detail of Fast and Furious has been alarming. Today’s developments of misinformation and lies, showing that top DOJ political appointees were in fact intimately aware of Operation Fast and Furious from the beginning, demonstrate what we already know—Eric Holder must go now. The American people and Congress deserve truthful answers in a timely manner. AG Holder and his senior staff have shown contempt for the Constitution by preventing us from getting those answers. I reiterate my call for Eric Holder’s resignation, and I am calling upon leadership to take up my Resolution of ‘No Confidence’ in Attorney General Holder, which has 114 cosponsors, for a vote as soon as possible.”
The letter from Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Issa to Attorney General Holder that details these documents can be seen here.
As the only member from Arizona on the committee for Oversight and Government Reform, Congressman Gosar has been a leading advocate for the victims of this poorly executed operation by demanding answers and justice.
