McCain: 'Tough' for Holder to Answer Whether He Should Stay

Appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) stated that Attorney General Eric Holder was in hot water for his comments before Congress in which he denied involvement in Department of Justice targeting of journalists. There were “obvious contradictions” in his statements, McCain stated, while shying away from labeling such contradictions perjurious. “I’m not having anything to do with these investigations … But I also think that the Attorney General has to ask himself the question, is he really able to serve the president of the United States and the American people under the present circumstances? That’s a decision he’d have to make.”

McCain did encourage Holder to step down: “Again, I think that would be up to him. But I think it would be tough for him to answer the question whether he can still effectively serve the president of the United States.”
