Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call File Photo Speaker John Boehner is supporting Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa in taking steps toward holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
King’s comments appeared in a story about House GOP leadership’s reluctance to pursue the contempt citation against Holder. King reportedly said, “I think leadership doesn’t want to be seen as using the gavels here for political purposes. I think there’s a bit of an aversion to that. Me? I have no reservations about that. This is politics.”
