Republicans demand more time to consider Holder; postponement of committee vote for one week
And that Texas senator from central casting, John Cornyn, has been a really busy bugger. First, throwing wrench into Hillary's confirmation, now Holder's.
Sen. John Cornyn , R-Texas, had said he would block committee proceedings, if he doesn't get an answer from Holder as to whether he would prosecute those who tortured prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.
Other Republican committee members are also worried about the potential for prosecutions. They think they should be given immunity if they believed they were acting within the law.
The GOP also seems to be concerned over Holder's role in the 2001 pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich.
"I think there's enough discontent that something has to be worked out," Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, told The Hill.
