The GOP House will vote today to hold AG Eric Holder in contempt

1 post / 0 new

Down the street from the Supreme Court, Republicans in the House of Representatives will vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his refusal to hand over documents pertaining to an ongoing law enforcement investigation over to small-time criminal and richest man in Congress Darryl Issa. This is the culmination of Issa’s crusade to embarrass the White House over the Fast and Furious non-scandal that Republicans have turned into a giant conspiracy.

The timing of today’s vote – which will likely be overshadowed by big health care news on all the networks besides Fox so-called News – suggests that Republican leadership doesn’t have too much faith in Congressman Issa’s witch hunt. Not only that – Republicans may be covering their own butts with this vote against Holder.

As a Fortune magazine expose on Fast and Furious published Wednesday revealed – ATF agents were unable to stop guns from flowing into Mexico because of laws lobbied for by Republicans and the NRA that make it virtually impossible to seize even illegal guns. Today’s vote is a sham, and an embarrassment to the nation.
