June 28, 2012, Fairfax, VA— Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson issued today the following statement in response to the U.S. House of Representatives vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder of the U.S. Justice Department in contempt for stonewalling on subpoenaed information on the Fast and Furious debacle:
“The House has taken the right step in holding Eric Holder in contempt. Holder is a self-proclaimed liar and has obstructed justice by refusing to comply with the legitimate requests of Congress. Executive privilege is not a shield against criminal activity. His actions deserve much more than a mild vote of contempt.”
