Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) was on MSNBC with Tamron Hall to discuss an upcoming House vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress. She explained that is sandbox politics and a distraction from what really needs to get done on the Hill.
"We have so many bills that are pending right now, that we should be taking action on: the surface transportation act which will expire this weekend, the student loan interest rate, which expires this weekend, and what are we doing? We're talking about holding the Attorney General in contempt because he won't release documents from February 2 to December 2, that have nothing to do with a gun walking, but more to do with when did they find out that in fact the letter that they had sent was inaccurate. They pulled the letter, they did the right thing, so there's no coverup here. This is high stakes politics at its worst."
