Did he lie under oath about his role in snooping on reporters including.
Fox News is James Rosen holder sit down comes as the job performance is taking a nose -- 40%.
And a Fox News poll disapprove of the job that America's top cop is doing.
Well the key lawmaker demanding answers from holder congressmen Bob good -- chairman of the House Judiciary Committee is with the announcer welcome back.
Good morning to -- really -- so you're gonna get some answers to some questions that you at a few weeks ago this week.
But he will come and sit down and talk with you behind closed doors next week do you believe he perjured himself when he testified in mid day.
You answered well that's why we wanna get the answers these questions on the record in writing the first effort -- got as underling that.
Answer the question for and we said that's not good enough then he attempted to adopt.
Those he answered with a separate letter saying you know those are my answers we said that's non responsive.
So now he has agreed to by the close of business tomorrow answer.
A number of questions that we have.
On the record in writing and he has agreed to provide full answers.
So we'll see okay -- -- -- -- get amounted to speak of on the record last night -- -- you said there either lying to congress will line to court or both.
Now here's the do you stand by that are not now.
Well we're gonna find out in here's the here's the concern.
The attorney general testified before the committee that would regarding the potential prosecution of reporters.
That's something that he's not been involved we have heard of or think with a wise idea.
A week after his testimony which was made under oath by the way.
He then that we we then learned about the rose in case because -- federal judge I think recognizing that.
This matter had been sealed for three years with both of an unsealed eighteen months earlier maybe.
Hearing about the AP case decided to do that and apologize by the way for the delay in that unseal the record we found an affidavit.
For a search warrant in which it was alleged that mr.
Rosen the senior white the senior -- correspondent of your news organization right.
Being accused of being a common criminally affidavit said that there was probable cause to show that at the least.
He was indicator of better or co conspirator in violating the Espionage Act as are pretty serious charges.
The response after this became public was oh that's the standard operating procedure in order to get.
The warrant to investigate the leaker knew anyway -- figure that out don't you are now on listen are either -- either false information to the court or false information to congress or maybe vote.
Understood okay sir hang on that point right now when asked if he should resign 52% Americans Asia.
I guess you only need to vote of one person that's present -- who he works for.
But with regard to this whole question about lying or not you think he can explain -- -- do you believe.
Well it's a very tough matter it's a very serious matter.
But we think he deserves an opportunity and finally we think he's taking that opportunity to answer the question will then.
Review those dancers and be the judge of whether they are full some answers if not there are further steps we can take including competing to the sounds to me like you're not soldiers yet so we'll see where that -- can change your mind.
In the Q&A and also the meeting next week quickly and immigration -- -- former immigration attorney.
You know this topic very well the reporting suggests that you will break up immigration reform.
And run through a series of many bills to work toward Graham legislation.
As opposed to what the Senate's doing with 1000 page report to do it all one time if you get -- -- What is the first -- you would push force there.
Well we're not wasting any time on that either bill we are going to take up an enforcement.
Provision in the House Judiciary Committee today.
It that addresses the interior enforcement we already have a bill coming out of the homeland security committee.
Dealing with -- border enforcement very important but about 3540%.
Of people who are.
Unlawfully present the United States entered lawfully on student visas visitors visas business visas he's -- waivers and simply overstayed their visas so the border.
Doesn't solve that problem has -- interior enforcement we'll take that Villa today that all of that is three others over the next two we are now there are -- again more border security 81% favor that by the way.
Path to citizenship 74%.
So that's SE American people talking right there.
Border security and a path to citizenship but if the house goes your route does that kill what's being done in the sensor.
Doesn't kill what's being done in the senate but it answers and fixes a lot of the problems that many house members including myself.
Have with the senate bill they give the legalization before they do any of the measures to secure the border and to have an enforcement mechanism like.
So that's what happen in 1986.
They got -- easy pathway to citizenship for three million people the promise of greater enforcement.
That promises still not been kept nearly thirty years later we don't want to repeat that same mistake again Bob good luck thank you for your time thanks for coming back we'll talk through things -- From the hill thank you --
