The U.S. Attorney General – the nation’s top law enforcement officer. A difficult job under any circumstances. And a position that often generates controversy. Now, there’s growing criticism that Attorney General Eric Holder is playing politics, especially when it comes to determining which cases to prosecute, and which to ignore. In an interview with Megyn Kelly on FOX News today, I discussed issues facing Attorney General Holder – including voting rights, immigration, and the botched gun-running Justice Department program, Operation Fast & Furious. You can watch the interview here.
There’s going to be a lot of attention on Attorney General Holder in the next couple of weeks regarding Operation Fast & Furious, as House Speaker Boehner urged President Obama to have his Attorney General comply with Rep. Issa’s subpoena of him in the Congressional investigation.
This from the Daily Caller: “Holder has thus far failed to comply with all 22 categories of the subpoena that requires him to provide Congress with documents relating to Fast and Furious. On 13 of the categories, Holder has provided no documents. On the other nine subpoena categories, Holder is still far from compliant.”
Operation Fast & Furious: one of many issues facing Attorney General Holder. And, as I have reported before, there’s certain to be more questions about the Attorney General and the politics of prosecution.
