Lisa Murkowski of Alaska was the only Republican to vote with... read more

Gosar Files Congressional Resolution of No Confidence in U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder

Gosar Files Congressional Resolution of No Confidence in U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, DDS (AZ-01) introduced H.Res. 490, a Resolution of No Confidence in U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.  The resolution states “that it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress has lost confidence in the Attorney General of the United States.”  Congressman Gosar hopes to accomplish two goals with this resolution: First, the reproval by Congress of an executive official, is a significant statement.  Cabinet positions, including the Attorney General, are appointed with the consent of half of Congress, the Senate.  Congress is more than entitled to express its approbation, disapproval or censure.  This resolution does that for the... read more
