Holder The Sting Operation SC House panel votes 23 17 to place Holder in contempt of Congress

A House panel voted Wednesday to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his failure to comply with a subpoena, defying an assertion of executive privilege from President Obama.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, led by Republican Chairman Darrell Issa (Calif.), approved a resolution along party lines to place Holder in contempt after battling him for months over access to internal agency documents about the gun-tracking operation Fast and Furious.

All 23 Republicans on the committee voted for the contempt resolution, while all 17 Democrats voted against it. Every member of the panel was present for the vote.

Minutes after the panel’s decision, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) announced that the full House will vote on the contempt measure next week.

    Unfortunately, this is as far as this will get. Holder will walk free and clear and we will STILL never have answers.

      Sad but true however if someone like Romney can get the parents of Brian Terry to speak at all the campaign stops and plead the case that as any parent would want to know the how and why their son or daughter got killed by Holder and Obumo,the liberal press just may have a heart and go after the 2 burrheads.

    I'm just glad to see that some congress people felt compeled to hold Holder in contempt.We know that big ugly gorilla Cummings think that because he's a coon that that is why their going after Holder and not a partaker in the murder of Brian Terry.That old fat slob Cummings and that dick head Maloney would be singing a different tune if it was a white AG and a colored border agent.
