Republican Congressman Floats Idea Of Arresting Attorney General Holder
Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz doesn’t seem to think arresting the attorney general would be a bad idea.
Chaffetz, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that there are three options moving forward — going through the U.S. attorney, taking civil action or instructing the House sergeant at arms to “take control of the situation” with an arrest.
However, he acknowledged the House had received a letter from Department of Justice instructing the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia to not pursue legal action.
The Utah congressman predicted that some people will call for Holder’s arrest, but said the House would “try to exhaust” its other options first.
