President Barack Obama defended his embattled Attorney General Eric Holder, embroiled in a scandal involving the Justice Department’s secret seizing of two months of call records for more than 20 work and personal telephone lines used by reporters and editors of the Associated Press.
During a Rose Garden joint news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a reporter asked Obama, “Do you still have full confidence in your attorney general?”
“I have complete confidence in Eric Holder as attorney general,” Obama said. “He’s an outstanding attorney general and he does his job with integrity. I expect he will continue to do so.”
The AP phone records scandal is only the most recent controversy surrounding the attorney general.
