House Committee Sets Contempt Vote for Holder

June 11, 2012  | 

The House Oversight Committee will vote on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for failing to turn over documents relating to the "Fast and Furious" gun operation.

It's the fourth time in 30 years Congress has launched a contempt action against an executive branch member, reports CBS News.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., says the Justice Department has refused to turn over tens of thousands of pages of documents including materials created after Feb. 4, 2011, when the Justice Department wrote a letter to Congress saying no "gunwalking" had occurred. The Justice Department later retracted the denial.

This should have been done months ago! Holder is as crooked as they come and because of his political activities he has cost the life of at least one, and probably more US Agents. He should be arrested and tried for his role in this and other criminal activities.

Holder has been inept from the get-go. He should never had been approved by the Senate to begin with but that's what you get when you have a bunch of idiots holding down that seat. He's a pampas ass, a liar, someone who has no respect for any single person or the Constitution. He needs to be held in contempt and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

This should have never happened. No oversight or control. Some really stupid decisions by senior folks who new about the operation. There should be charges for lying, gun running, and cover up by main Justice, etc....Holder must go.

Holder should be held accountable for his inactions! And so should Obama!
