Which are seen -- your screen is attorney general Eric Holder testifying again in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee rejoining us now senator.
I John Cornyn and senator elect stop with this question on to sort of set it up for our viewers that may just be joining us you know lawmakers want.
Additional pages from the Department of Justice on fast and furiously DOJ isn't providing -- This is why severe colleagues in the house are threatening to hold Eric Holder in contempt of congress -- even with that process as you know as a judge -- could take years.
For the DOJ to cough up those documents an easier way could be a loss see why not ask a federal judge.
To examine which documents the public -- with the hope that -- all have answers faster why not try that route.
Well I do believe that the obstruction wishing to -- attorney general -- an attempt to delay.
The truth coming out until after the election and so it is that is -- politically motivated.
I think -- other another lawsuit would actually take longer ultimately.
You know as you said given my background as a judge for thirteen years so I think the the easiest and most expeditious way to get to the bottom of this would be for.
Eric Holder to come clean.
So far he's defied the the the subpoenas of the House of Representatives today for the first time he said rather than have a constitutional crisis.
Then you know I'll sit down and work this out -- the House of Representatives and with the senate.
But it will be a constitutional crisis.
But -- will be used.
Let's turn -- operate -- he is suffering to sit down now and talk to anyway and face to face a do you think this has got into personal and too emotional.
I did to be -- to solve this situation effectively just between adult.
It's it's not personal.
It may be some -- here because I think people are genuinely angry and I'm one album.
That the attorney general has held no one accountable.
For this gun walking operation that took the life of Brian -- a US law enforcement agent and perhaps many other people.
And as well and he won't hold himself accountable and that's what we're talking about -- is accountability.
Senator -- and pleasure to have you today thank you for stepping -- at a hearing -- -- some really appreciate it.
