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.

OK, it is time we all take a breath - this is a side show here is the real show they fear most -

DO NOT FORGET IT IS THE ECONOMY STUPID.

 

 

Wrong..we the poeple will see it...and King Os records too...and yes..it is the economy stupid too.

Breitbart's coroner poisoned to death?

Police probe mysterious demise of L.A. medical examiner

"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.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
