Contempt Charges For Holder Imminent – “Weeks Away” According to Issa

Shortly after the blogger bowling bash at Blogcon, last night, while Blogconners were sipping cocktails at Fitzgerald’s Irish Pub,  none other than The Daily Caller’s, Matthew Boyle pointed me to this important story on Fast and Furious that I somehow  managed to miss, last week. I figure if I missed it, some of you did too….

Kerry Picket at the Washington Times Water Cooler reported this, last Wednesday:

Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has yet to charge Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt of Congress for failing to supply Mr. Issa’s committee with thousands of pieces of documentation relating to the Justice Department’s gun walking operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

Rep. Issa told me on Tuesday night to expect movement on the contempt charge towards A.G. Holder very soon.

“We’re going through a process,” said Congressman Issa. “That process is going to take weeks but not months more.”

This comes after a year of  threats made by Chairman Issa  to hold officials of the Obama Justice Department in contempt for their obstruction of justice surrounding the Fast and Furious scandal, unless they cooperated  more fully..

Townhall’s, Katie Pavlich (also at BlogCon) documented the DOJ’s systematic and egregious stonewalling cover-up in her hot new bestseller, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup.

Pavlich asks: “will perjury charges follow charges of contempt? After all, Holder has changed his testimony about what he knew and when he knew about Fast and Furious multiple times, under oath in front of Congress.”

Another question to ask – will enough Democrats join Republicans on holding Holder’s feet to the fire, to shake the MSM loose from their ennui on the Fast and Furious scandal?  – And could a vote of “no confidence” also be looming?

Final question: Will Attorney General Eric Holder become such a drag on the Obama administration that he’ll be asked to step down before the election, or will he brazen it out to the bitter end?


Doug Ross (also at Blog Con):Breaking: New Letterhead Unveiled for the Department of Justice:

In light of reports that the Department of Justice now refers reporters to Media Matters — the George Soros-funded propaganda arm of the hard Left — I felt it imperative to introduce brand new letterhead for the DOJ.

The Department of Justice is using the liberal “watchdog” group Media Matters for America to deflect questions about the Fast and Furious scandal, including those regarding a gun that might have been used in the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

The Washington Free Beacon: DOJ using the liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America to deflect questions about the Fast & Furious scandal:

A new book raises questions as to whether the FBI hid the existence of a weapon recovered at the scene of murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Conservative commentator and author Katie Pavlich lays out evidence she says points to a FBI cover-up to protect a confidential informant in her recently released book, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up,

In response to an inquiry from the Free Beacon, a Justice Department spokeswoman said in an email that she “was told to direct your questions to the FBI, and also to provide you with a link to this story:”

The link was to a story at the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America supposedly refuting many of Pavlich’s claims. Media Matters is a partisan organization whose founder, David Brock, is also running a pro-Obama super PAC.

  1. Uh huh. And Holder will drag this out, not supplying anything, until after the re-election of the Anointed Won, whose re-election is assured because in more than half the states the Democraps not only control who counts the votes, but control the company that both controls the means of voting and the counting of said votes, with absolutely not record of how any particular person voted.

    With that in mind, all the A.G. has to do is wait and the basis of the whole thing will disappear into thin air because, well, gosh, everything just disappeared, ya know, and try to prove it was on purpose.

    And oh, BTW Mr. Issa, if you keep this up you will have to be sent to one of our re-education camps because you’ve become quite a noisy annoyance. What’s that you say? Well, what did you think that mega-order of bullets was for, the TSA?

    Bottom line as far as I can see is that not only is Holder safe, but Issa will be one of the first to know the wrath of the new “American” dictator and his toady next year.


  2. How ironic it is due process that determines the timing of when Eric “My People” Holder will be called to account by the republic. Patriots await with baited breath for the charges to be filed.


  3. Sorry, ND, but Issa’s been at it for a year now, and by measuring progress to this point I get a little distrustful that Issa’s is any more than circus show as pap for his voters back home. There are serious charges that have been made, charges that would land anyone else in the nation (except Duh-1 himself) behind bars awaiting trial.

    If our justice system is so corrupt as to take that much time, the Constitution has failed (“fair and speedy” and all that) and we may as well pack it up and wait for the gulags.

    Speaking of which, you can bet your sweet bippy that when the gulags are opened, Holder won’t be concerned about the “fair” in “fair and speedy.”


  4. What I gather – (from listening to somebody who has been very close to House and senate sources on this story) – is that there has been a method to their madness.


  5. Issa, I’ve heard it before. 5 weeks ago, again it was imminent. Either shit or get off the pot. You have this and many other fish left to fry.

  9. With that in mind, all the A.G. has to do is wait and the basis of the whole thing will disappear into thin air because, well, gosh, everything just disappeared, ya know, and try to prove it was on purpose.

    Except that the law provides certain presumptions when you don’t comply with subpeonas.


  10. And who will “investigate” it, B.I.C.? Holder? His Injustice Department? Issa? Heck, you know what the first two will do, and since Issa’s had a year already to “investigate” both F&F and the associated murders of both the Mexicans and two United States agents, I wouldn’t hold out too much hope for that, especially anytime before near the end of Obhammud’s second term (which daily seems more likely, what with the willing media and a Congress that doesn’t even care if the president is shredding the Constitution with an attitude of defiance.)

    Don’t get me wrong – I will work tirelessly to have our Pretender-in-Chief whalloped at the polls in November, but since he has toadies controlling the voting and the counting of those votes in more than half the states, I see little that a willing-accomplice Congress can do to stop him.
