GOP Rep: Eric Holder Needs to Re-Read Constitution

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) told Breitbart News he thinks Attorney General Eric Holder needs a refresher course on the U.S. Constitution in the wake of reports that the Department of Justice secretly obtained two months of the Associated Press’s phone records. 

Gosar expressed concerns that President Barack Obama’s “enemies list” continues to grow, especially in light of revelations that the IRS targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations. 

“On one hand, I am encouraged to hear that the Attorney General obtained warrants first. Score one for the Fourth Amendment,” Gosar said in an email. “But I remain concerned about the First Amendment and the targeting of journalists. Whether the Administration is targeting conservatives, patriots, Tea Party groups, Jewish groups or now journalists, the enemies list seems to grow as does the potential abuse of power.”

Gosar added though that he thinks Holder needs to re-read the U.S. Constitution, and offered to provide a copy for President Obama’s top law enforcement official if he does not have one available.

“I call upon the Attorney General to refresh his memory of the U.S. Constitution,” Gosar said. “If he cannot find one, I am happy to personally hand deliver one to him.”
