House, Holder may near deal on Fast and Furious contempt

quote:

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Jackson was set to hold a key hearing next week in the lawsuit the House filed seeking to enforce its subpoena for records of how the Justice Department responded to Congressional inquiries about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives gunrunning investigation that may have resulted in as many as 2000 weapons flowing to Mexican drug cartels.


quote:

However, both the Justice Department and the House asked Jackson Tuesday to put the scheduled hearing off for more than two months as the two sides try to work out a deal that could obviate the need for the lawsuit.

quote:

The parties have continued to engage in settlement talks. Without divulging the substance of those talks, the talks are progressing sufficiently such that the parties believe that further talks may be fruitful," Justice Department lawyers wrote in the new motion (posted here). "Accordingly, the parties believe that, in order to enable the parties to focus their efforts on settlement and avoid the potentially unnecessary expenditure of judicial resources, the hearing on the Motion to Dismiss should be rescheduled for the week of April 15, 2013."

They will eventually settle and Republicans won't find the fireworks they are looking for. The end.

Naa. Democrats have better lawyers. They'll keep teasing this along until they are out of the whitehouse. Republicans have no back-bone.

These things usually settle and nothing ever becomes of it

He's the first sitting AG to ever be held in contempt by the U.S.Congress
How can you compare it to anything else?

Not so. When last the GOP Congress went on a witch hunt, Janet Reno was held in contempt.

Also, Ford had two Secretaries held in contempt including Kissenger. Carter had two. Reagan had two and two EPA officials.

Clinton had his WH counsel and Div of Adm.

Bush had Harriet Myers and Joshua Bolton.

Why do you think someone's particular position in an administration has bearing on whether an agreement will be arrived at?

What is such a big deal about an AG getting cited as opposed to a Secretary of State, WH Chief of Staff, WH Legal Counsel, Cabinet official, etc.?

Kissinger was cited by one of the committees but it never made it to a floor vote

I figure they should just about have all those docs shredded and computers wiped by then.

No big deal. I have a lot of contempt for Congress too.
