GOP Rep Slams Loretta Lynch: I Miss Eric Holder (The Washington Free Beacon)

Rep. Doug Collins (R., Ga.) slammed Attorney General Loretta Lynch during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday saying that he misses Lynch’s predecessor, Eric Holder.

Collins said that while Holder would give the committee “answers we didn’t like,” Lynch was “not willing to make a concrete statement of law.”

“It goes back to something that’s very disturbing. I never thought I’d say this, I actually and I say this with due respect, Attorney General, I miss Eric Holder, because at least when he came here he gave us answers we didn’t like,” Collins said. “But I’ve spent the last four hours listening to basically the Attorney General of the United States not willing to make a concrete statement of law, to not be willing to say that when given the opportunity about a colleague of mine who made the decision in this case.”
