House Republicans Accuse Holder of 'Deceptive and Misleading Testimony'

The attorney general was not as forthcoming as they would have liked during testimony on the DOJ's probes of journalists


House Republicans are accusing Attorney General Eric Holder of giving "deceptive and misleading testimony" to lawmakers when answering their questions about the Justice Department's criminal probes of journalists, including Fox News' James Rosen.

According to a report released Wednesday by the House Judiciary Committee, Holder attempted to "circumvent proper congressional oversight and accountability by distorting the truth about the Justice Department's investigative techniques targeting journalists."
