WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on Attorney General Holder's refusal to comply with the House investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal:
"Fast and Furious was a failed operation that resulted in tragedy, and Americans are right to demand answers from Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama administration," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
"This administration promised to be the most transparent in history, but they have clearly failed to live up to that promise. President Obama criticized other presidents for invoking executive privilege, but now that it serves his political purposes he's doing the same to protect his Attorney General. That's certainly not transparency. It's hypocrisy, and it rightly leaves Americans and the families affected by Fast and Furious wondering what the administration is hiding."
