Attorney General needs to show respect

To the Editor:
I have been closely following the Judiciary Committee’s pressuring of Attorney General Eric Holder in regards to his less than forthcoming testimony back on May 15. Though Holder’s tenure as AG is riddled with instances such as this, his blatant disdain for authority and oversight in matters involving himself is now truly evident. When a congressional committee asks you to answer several simple questions, and you fail to provide a response, then you obviously have little to no care for the very laws you have been tasked with to implement. I’m glad our own Congressman Forbes and his colleagues on the judiciary Committee have not let this issue rest – I hope the AG will show them and the American taxpayers some respect and provide them truthful, sincere answers this time.
