Washington, DC, November 17, 2011
Several members of Congress will band together next Tuesday at 1:15 to demand “answers and accountability” on Operation Fast and Furious from Attorney General Eric Holder, The Daily Caller has learned.The press conference will focus on those who’ve called for Holder’s immediate resignation – and why they’re doing it – in addition to calling the embattled Attorney General out for the information he’s continued to withhold from Congress. Arizona Republican Rep.
