Senators pounce on Holder over report on Ted Stevens prosecution

Washington (CNN) - Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday ran into unexpected bipartisan opposition on Capitol Hill over the Justice Department's failure to release its report on the alleged misconduct of the prosecutors who mishandled the prosecution of the late Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.

Two Democrats and two Republicans jumped on Holder for not releasing the report by the Justice watchdog unit, the Office of Professional Responsibility.

    This would not be so bad if it wasn't the kind of thing we see more and more of lately. We can do better.

    More political posturing by senators. Holder hasn't refused to release it, he just refused to release it until all of the information has been thoroughly examined.

    Election year politics and exposure to a flawed legal system as it applies to politicians.

    This is the most secretive/tight lipped White House in history. They certainly are protected by the powerful!

    The only time Republicans are quick to do anything is if it involves war, or trying to smear Democrats. God I hate them.

    Talk about making mountains out of molehills. The other report will be out in a couple of weeks and no one can chill that long? What's the urgency? It's not like we don't have more pressing matters that need our lawmakers' attention, like regulating oil speculators or passing the millionaire tax three quarters of Americans want, Oh wait....
