WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement on the lawsuit filed today by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Republicans against Attorney General Eric Holder:

“I continue to be dismayed by Republicans’ attempts to distract from the real challenges facing this nation by pursuing an unnecessary and partisan lawsuit against Attorney General Holder.  As I said on the House Floor in June, the investigation against him by Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has been motivated by politics, not by the pursuit of justice.  Instead of moving forward with this partisan lawsuit, House Republicans would be better off working with Democrats to address the serious challenges we face by achieving solutions that create jobs, move our economic recovery forward, and set our country back on a sound fiscal path.”
