Eric Holder Let Darrell Issa Know Just How Much He Hates Him Today

California congressman Darrell Issa and Attorney General Eric Holder are not friends. Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has pestered Holder about the controversial Fast and Furious gun-walking program for years. His committee even voted to hold Holder in contempt for his refusal to turn over certain documents. During a hearing today, Holder’s feelings for Issa burst out into the open when he called the congressman’s behavior “unacceptable” and “shameful,” and, getting more personal, “too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress.”
