Holder: House committee vote 'unwarranted'
Thursday - 6/21/2012, 8:04am EDT
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says a vote by a House of Representatives committee to hold him in contempt was "unwarranted, unnecessary and unprecedented."
Holder says he believes that a negotiated solution can be found, and the assembly "has to consider (...) what they will do and we'll see how it works out. "
The White House reacted sharply Wednesday to the party-line vote that came after President Barack Obama invoked executive privilege in refusing to turn over documents related to Operation Fast and Furious, which sent illicit arms into Mexico. A vote by the full House could come next week.
Holder spoke Thursday on the sidelines of a meeting with European Union officials in Copenhagen, Denmark, which holds the rotating EU presidency.
