Holder may face Contempt Vote

PostBy: Richard S. On: Thu Jun 21, 2012 4:04 am

A House panel voted Wednesday in favor of holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, a move that inflamed partisan rancor on Capitol Hill and sets up the possibility of legal action against the attorney general himself.

Holder has not yet been formally held in contempt of Congress. The full House would still need to approve the resolution in order for that to happen -- sources say House Republican officials, including Rep. Issa, R-Calif., are willing end to a potential constitutional confrontation, but only if the Obama administration turns over more emails and memos about the botched anti-gunrunning operation Fast and Furious

Hows that transparency thing working out for you?

Issa pressed ahead with the vote Wednesday despite an eleventh-hour move by President Obama to assert executive privilege over the Fast and Furious documents at the heart of the dispute.

Is this why President Obama invoked executive privilege yesterday in order to withhold turning over Fast and Furious related documents to Congress? Perhaps he should be impeached?

"Government transparency" is just another broken campain promise and this presidents list of broken ones just keep on getting longer. :o I have no doubt that Holder will go down with the ship instead of the captian. Obama isn't man enough to take blame when he does something. If he was he wouldn't have to invoke "Executive Privilage", he would just turn over the documents requested.This goes all the way to the top and was a ploy to infringe on the 2nd amendment. The backdoor ploy ended getting good people killed. I think the public has a right to know what went on. Lets see the who did what. ;)

This is a scandal 10x worse than Watergate. Re-election of this administration shouldn't even be ALLOWED, let alone considered! Just imagine the fallout if Bush had done anything remotely close to this. We've impeached presidents for less that this! Keep the heat on your elected officials to bring these criminals to justice!

The media refused to report anything about it for the first several months of the investigation - that tells you how trustworthy the mainstream media is today. I first heard about it reading online blogs. What a world we live in ... :roll:

WOW, There's no doubt the republicans will play this up as much as possible and play up the idea of a massive scandal,
hell that's what your are best at!

I agree this has the potential to hurt Obama, he needs to be real careful here, not to be too secretive, lets see what went on..

The whole thing is BS, IMO, but that doesn't mean that the republicans can't make it seem like the worst thing since Clinton's blowjob, which of course was far worse than anything Bush ever did.

"Scandal" is a "Republican" thing??? And getting Americans killed (not to mention untold numbers of Mexicans - probably right this second too) isn't a scandal??? No Republican has ever come CLOSE to this degree of corruption. THEY WON'T EVEN ANSWER QUESTIONS ASKED OF THEM BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!! What are they hiding??

:funny: WOW ... you've been born & raised on the leftist Kool-Aid, I see. There's no hope for you. Put your head back in the sand - everything's fine. I hear the Euro is a great investment too. You should visit Greece - excellent economy - they'll take real good care of you!

Blind partisanship toward one party is what the politicians love. I will never understand how a failure by one party excuses failure by the other. Marriage to an ideology just leads to tyranny by those who espouse it.

xaos, I wonder if the families of those that died from all this think it's just BS like you do? I bet the main stream media would have given this more air time if the guns were used to kill baby seals and spotted owls.

It could be a cover up & it could also be that there are things that this committee can't be trusted to know. If some names are leaked how many more might die, we all should remember that even the name of a CIA operative was given out.

True, but given his record to date I would rather trust Jack The Ripper in a dark London alleyway. He killed far less people.

How many were killed in a invasion & occupation of two countries? One don't make the other right by any means, just saying.
