It's not just Marc Rich and 1996 fundraising that Republicans want to know about.
To prepare for Eric Holder Jr.'s confirmation hearing to be attorney general, Republicans are gathering information on a wide variety of subjects that the Justice Department was involved in during the 1990s. The subjects include President Bill Clinton's impeachment, contributions from Venezuelans to the Democratic Party in 1992, and a communications satellite that was shipped to China.
They also include death penalty cases, the extension of the Brady bill, and the Justice Department's investigation into the Waco, Texas, stand-off.
Senate Republicans outlined the subjects in a two-page letter sent today to Attorney General Michael Mukasey, asking Mukasey for documents where Holder "is designated as a recipient, or documents prepared by Mr. Holder in his position as U.S. Attorney, Deputy Attorney General, or Acting Attorney General or by his staff, for his approval, or on which his name or initials appear."
