The ABC15 Investigators will be in Washington, DC when Attorney General Eric Holder testifies in front of the House Judiciary Committee on the ATF's Fast and Furious case.
Holder will be testifying on Thursday, December 8, 2011, starting at 7:30 am Arizona time.
The hearing, which is expected to cover issues pertaining to the controversial ATF Fast and Furious case, may last several hours.
The House Judiciary Committee has primary jurisdiction over the Department of Justice.
Holder testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee one month ago.
During that hearing, Holder told the committee he had never apologized to the family of Brian Terry after two weapons linked to ATF's controversial Fast and Furious case turned up at the scene of Terry's murder.
Terry was shot in the back - near the Arizona border with Mexico- in December 2010.
"I certainly regret what happened to agent Terry," Holder said, in response to a question from Texas Senator John Cornyn (R).
Cornyn asked Holder whether he would like to apologize for the "program that went so wrong that it took the life of a United States law enforcement agent."
"I can only imagine the pain that his family has had to deal with, in particular his mother," Holder said in response.
"I am a father of three children myself. We are not programmed to bury our kids. It pains me whenever there is the death of a law enforcement official, especially under the circumstances that this occurred. It is not fair, however, to assume that the mistake that happened in Fast and Furious directly led to the death of Agent Terry," he testified.
Some members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee , which has been heavily involved investigation, are also members of the House Judiciary Committee.
