King: What Else is Eric Holder Hiding?

Congressman Steve King questioned Attorney General Eric Holder today in the Judiciary Committee regarding the Fast and the Furious scandal. King released the following statement after the hearing:

“I hope they have caught the murderer of Brian Terry, that’d go a long ways towards solving this,” King said. “But meanwhile we have a government that was dysfunctional. We have some, at least 150 maybe as many as 300 Mexicans that have been killed by the guns that were run out of the southern part of the United States with the blessing of the Justice Department and the people that they regulate. And so we have Brian Terry who is dead in a tragic death and shooting.”

King added, “The last time that Holder testified before us was May 3 of this year and when he was asked when he learned about Fast and Furious, he said “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” He has since had to retract his statement because the facts prove him wrong. Today when asked by Congressman Issa if he had provided all of the information requested, he said yes, but later in the hearing Congressman Franks was able to ask the question in a different way and found that Eric Holder had not produced the information requested by the Oversight Committee.”
