WASHINGTON (AP) – Attorney General Eric Holder could face tough questioning today by the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee on topics ranging from the government’s handling of intelligence before the Boston Marathon bombings to the Justice Department’s gathering of phone records at The Associated Press.

The panel chairman, Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, also says he’s concerned about the targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service, which is being investigated by the Justice Department.
