Question of the Day
Snyder questions plan of fellow governors
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is questioning the approach of his fellow Republican governors in the upper Midwest.
He said in an interview with the Associated Press that their efforts to push through divisive legislation may make governing more difficult in the long run.
Mr. Snyder says he sees large protests in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana about anti-union laws as unfortunate. He says pushing the contentious legislation means those states will have to overcome divisiveness and hard feelings in the future.
Mr. Snyder spoke to the AP on Wednesday, while in Washington to speak to a congressional committee about job creation.
Mr. Snyder says he prefers a consensus approach to governing. He says government should do what it can, find areas of agreement and get that done rather than focus on potentially divisive legislation.
Officials reject claims of department cover-up
The Justice Department is rejecting an assertion by a House committee chairman that top Justice officials are covering up events surrounding a flawed gun-smuggling probe, Operation Fast and Furious.
Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, made the accusation in a letter threatening to pursue contempt proceedings against Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. for failing to turn over congressionally subpoenaed documents created after problems with Fast and Furious came to light.
Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole responded Wednesday that the department will provide material created after Feb. 4, 2011, the day the department gave incorrect information to Congress about Fast and Furious. At the time, the department said federal agents made every effort to intercept weapons illegally purchased from Phoenix-area gun shops. Instead, the agents tried to track the weapons after purchase.
