House Committee Vote: AG Holder In Contempt

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—Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., afterward told Fox News that such a floor vote can still be avoided.

But the 23-17 party-line vote on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee marked a significant turn in lawmakers’ 16-month investigation into the botched anti-gunrunning operation Fast and Furious. With the vote, Republicans on the committee signaled they had exhausted all other means to extract sought-after documents from the Justice Department—though Democrats had insisted there was still an opportunity to sort out the mess without a contempt vote.

“We and the American people need answers sooner, not later,” said Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the committee.

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.

For a year and a half this racist, lying, cheatin’, two faced mo-fo has been playing games and refusing to cooperate with Congress. What, he thinks he above the law? Nuh uh, EVERYBODY in government bows down to Congress. And now his time is about to run out. Crucify him. Offer him a deal if he rats out everyone, and then renege on it. Oops, sorry, you didn’t come clean enough fast enough, and now we’re furious. Tough luck.

For a few hours this morning it looked like he might have had an escape plan: Obama pulled the old Executive Privilege game, and tried to cover his homey with it. All that proved to me was that Obama was in this Fast And Furious business up to his neck, and had been since the beginning. And we all know what it was all about: creating a false “emergency” to bring back the AWB and to shut down the Second Amendment. And they were all in on it. Obama, Napolitano, Holder, Clinton, etc. Otherwise Holder would be another speed bump under the famous bus. But I guess the House Committee wasn’t going to accept that kind of cover up. Good for them.

Ealier:

President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead Wednesday morning with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway.

If the vote proceeds, Republicans have more than enough votes on committee to pass the resolution. However, Holder would not be considered held in contempt of Congress unless and until the full House approves the measure.

The move by Holder and Obama to lock down some requested documents only complicates the fight over the botched anti-gunrunning operation between the legislative and executive branches.

When one domino falls it knocks over another one. And another one. And so on, and so on. Lets see what happens now. Is it possible that some Republicans in Congress have grown a bit of spine?

We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
