Boehner: I ‘support’ Issa’s ‘efforts’ to hold DOJ accountable

During his weekly press briefing on Capitol Hill, TheDC asked Boehner, “Will you support the 100-plus members who have called for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign and bring up [Arizona Republican] Rep. [Paul] Gosar’s resolution of no confidence to the floor?”
“I think Chairman Issa and the members of the committee have done a very good job of investigating this abuse of government power,” Boehner replied, “and I continue to support their efforts and believe that this Justice Department must be held accountable.”
California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the committee, has moved to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt for failing to provide him subpoenaed documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running operation. (RELATED: Issa takes step toward holding Holder in contempt of Congress)
