Rep. Goodlatte: AG Loretta Lynch Gave the Least Transparent Testimony that I Can Recall in My Time in Congress

‘It was plainly a disservice to the American people’


GOODLATTE: "While much has been done to correct the improper political engagement by the Department of Justice under the Obama Administration, more work must be done to ensure the department is operating to impartially administer justice. Our last DOJ oversight hearing was beyond disappointing. Attorney General Loretta Lynch gave the least fulsome and least transparent testimony that I can recall in my time in Congress. It was plainly a disservice to the American people. Ms. Lynch failed to respond substantively to nearly every question posed by members of this committee. Before Ms. Lynch, former attorney general Eric Holder became the first attorney general in history to be held in contempt by the House of Representatives for his own stonewalling with regard to the documents connected to the reckless Operation Fast and Furious. I expect, Mr. Attorney General, that you will be more willing to candidly answer questions from members on both sides of the aisle.”
