Washington, D.C. – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today released the following statement after the US House voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress:
“I opposed the contempt of Congress resolution today because I don’t want political games or partisan politics to stand in the way of a serious effort to find the truth.
“The best place to resolve this dispute isn’t on the floor of the House in an election year, but in a federal court where both sides can present their cases and the debate won’t turn into a political circus.
“I’ve been disappointed by the failure of both House Republicans and the Justice Department to find a practical way to get the American people the full details of this tragedy without compromising existing court orders and other national security concerns. An American was murdered and we owe it to his family and the public to get to the bottom of what happened.”# # #
