Attorney General Eric Holder is once again under fire because of another scandal. Holder will face questions today on Capitol Hill regarding his department’s decision to secretly look into phone records of AP employees. According to The Hill, Holder is standing by the decision even while recusing himself from the investigation.

The investigation was launched nearly a year ago when Holder appointed two U.S. attorneys to look into a series of national security leaks. Members in both parties said at the time they were the worst leaks in recent history.

Amid calls for his resignation and a push for a select committee to investigate the department, Holder on Tuesday said the rules were strictly followed.

“I’m not familiar with all that went into the formulation of the subpoena. I was recused from that matter,” said Holder at a press conference. “But I’m confident that the people who are involved in this investigation … followed all of the appropriate Justice Department regulations and did things according to DOJ rules.”

Holder added that the leak that sparked the subpoena was “a very, very serious leak.”

The DOJ’s decision to subpoena the outgoing phone records of 20 AP employees has provoked outrage from media outlets and politicians on both sides of the aisle. Some Republicans have compared the DOJ’s actions to those taken during the Nixon administration.
