House committee schedules contempt vote against Holder


LINK

quote:

CBS News has learned the House Oversight Committee will vote next week on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. It's the fourth time in 30 years that Congress has launched a contempt action against an executive branch member.

"The Obama Administration has not asserted Executive Privilege or any other valid privilege over these materials and it is unacceptable that the Department of Justice refuses to produce them. These documents pertain to Operation Fast and Furious, the claims of whistleblowers, and why it took the Department nearly a year to retract false denials of reckless tactics," Issa wrote in an announcement of the vote to be released shortly. It will reveal the vote is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20.

Will be a party-line vote even though it should be 435-0.

The man knowingly LIED to the committee. If Clemens and Bonds can get tried for lies under oath for as little as steroids, Holder should too.

They may as well go ahead and include the criminal stonewalling of what will end up being a WH national security leak scandal. Makes Scooter Libby look like the lightweight that he was.

Orwellian, disgusting and dangerous for us all...if we don't set a precedent of no tolerance for this stuff.

Romney needs to go all in.

The term 'witch hunt' will be used profusely.

Why do they need to vote on this? He's either in contempt or he isn't. Doesn't seem like a sort of thing that requires a vote.

How many times an hour does CBS News use the word Holder?

Would love to hear the reasoning behind any votes against contempt.

You skipped over the obvious "vast right conspiracy" that will be trotted out tout suite by the Oboes.

Washington, DC (June 11, 2012) – Representative Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement today in response to the Committee’s official notice scheduling a business meeting next week to consider holding Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. in contempt of Congress.

quote:

“It is unfortunate that the Committee scheduled a contempt vote against the Attorney General when federal law prohibits him from turning over many of the subpoenaed documents, but I am guardedly optimistic that a path forward exists that will serve the legitimate interests of the Committee in conducting rigorous oversight, protect the legitimate interests of the Department in its ongoing investigations and prosecutions, and avoid the needless politicization of this very serious issue.”

Interesting. Issa has said he thinks he has 31 Donks that will vote for contempt.

Eric Holder, the man who's making bipartisanship cool, is a uniter.

Didn't HR Haldeman or John Ehrlichman make a statement like this a while ago?

You hit the nail on the head Zach. Ed is already on the bandwagon:

@edshow: Rep. Issa wants Attorney General Holder held in contempt. Political witch hunt? Tweet so we can share on #edshow!
