During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder and Rep. Darrell Issa got into a heated exchange, with Holder tearing into the GOP oversight chairman calling his conduct “unacceptable” and “shameful.”
Issa was in the midst of aggressively questioning Holder about the Obama Administration’s contacts with Labor Secretary nominee Tom Perez, suggesting there was a violation of the Federal Records Act that was being covered up by the Obama Administration.
Holder, visibly frustrated, interrupted to challenge Issa.
“No, no, no, that’s — I am not going to stop talking now,” Holder abruptly started out.
“It is inappropriate and too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress,” the attorney general went on to say. “It is unacceptable and it’s shameful.”
