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.
The vote came shortly after Obama escalated the conflict by sending a letter to the committee claiming executive privilege over the documents that the panel had sought.
Some Dems do..that is why they are bailing on the DNC in NC....
When you manufacture a problem, it backfires, you should go to Jail on more than one charge! Accessory to Murder comes to mind.
Democraps want the guns banned so we can be sheep like they are. The Liberals say the murderers need rehab, I say automatic death penalty w/ no appeals for gun crimes.
this is so stupid the president works for us and if he is lying he needs to be fired. along with most of the congress and senate......we need to clean house.
I can think of a few other things he is in contempt of.
Obama is in as much trouble now as Nixon was in 1973. Yet ... the same media that gleefully cheered when Nixon resigned ... is protecting this sorry excuse for a president and his crooked Attorney General. Vote ... vote ... vote the SOB's out.
ANd put the media out of business..speak with your pocketbooks...don't watch the MSM, don't go to Follywood movies, don't buy their magazines...or the newspapers..Washington Times OK, Weekly Standard OK, and so far the WSJ is OK...so far FOX OK...
Much worse than watergate.
Wrong..we the poeple will see it...and King Os records too...and yes..it is the economy stupid too.
"Medical examiners in Los Angeles are investigating the possible poisoning death of one of their own officials who may have worked on the case of Andrew Breitbart, the conservative firebrand who died March 1, the same day Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced probable cause for forgery in President Obama’s birth certificate."
It's really all starting to fall apart.
Time to FRY...
This is another Losing situation (with the Voters) for Obama. 'Average' Voters in the Middle will now be made aware of the Issue and being Fair minded will decide against OBAMA's over-protection of HIS Atty. Gen. in this matter. In short, they will agree that Congress, the representatives of The People, have an Oversight Responsibility and therefore have a Right to these Documents.
