Judicial Watch has submitted a request to the California Legislature's Joint Rules Committee to seek the employment records of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

The group announced the action on its website.

On Jan. 4, California Democrats announced their hiring of Holder to assist in defending state policies against any legal battles that might ensue with Donald Trump's administration.

Judicial Watch objected, saying the hiring of Holder wastes tax dollars.

In a statement issued Monday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said his watchdog group's "records request is designed to expose how California state legislators are wasting tax dollars to take care of another corrupt politician — Eric Holder — under the guise of resisting the rule of law on immigration and other matters. His record at the [Hillary] Clinton and [President Barack] Obama Justice Departments demonstrates a willingness to bend the law in order to protect his political patrons."

Holder is the first U.S. attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress. He was one of Obama's "longest-serving and most controversial Cabinet members," according to the Judicial Watch report. He served as U.S. attorney general from 2009-2015.
