House GOP wants Holder to testify again on press monitoring

The House Judiciary Committee said Thursday that it wants Attorney General Eric Holder to appear before the panel again this summer to answer more question about the Department of Justice's surveillance of reporters' records.

The committee's chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said that Holder should appear to clarify earlier testimony regarding the DoJ's monitoring of journalists' phone and email records as part of an investigation into leaked classified data.

Holder had previously told Congress that he hadn't been involved with prosecuting reporters. Revelations of Justice Department activities have led some Republicans to conclude that Holder misled Congress.

Here's a copy of Goodlatte's letter to Holder.
