Simpson's Statement on Attorney General Eric Holder in Criminal Contempt:

June 28, 2012
“I find no satisfaction in voting to hold the Attorney General in contempt of Congress, but I also can’t stand by and watch the oversight role of Congress ignored and thwarted,” said Congressman Mike Simpson. “Congress has a right to the documents it has sought from the Attorney General but more importantly, the American people have a right to those documents. The American people also have a right to the truth surrounding Operation Fast and Furious and until I am confident they have received the truth, I will support the effort of Congress to aggressively seek it on their behalf.”
