Obama Privilege: Eric “My People” Holder Found In Contempt of Congress

District of Corruption

It looks like I missed a big day for the degeneration of BRA into absolute tyranny:

“WASHINGTON — Republicans on the House oversight committee voted on Wednesday to recommend holding Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt of Congress in a dispute over internal Justice Department documents related to the botched gun trafficking operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

The 23-to-17 vote, which fell along party lines, came after President Obama invoked executive privilege to withhold the documents and communications among Justice Department officials last year as they grappled with the Congressional investigation into the case. As part of the operation, weapons bought in the United States were allowed to reach a Mexican drug cartel in an effort to build a bigger case.”

Note: The huge Supreme Court decisions on Obamacare and Arizona are imminent.

  1. I predict Romney will give a pussified response, or no response, just like with the Dream Act. A real opposition nominee would denounce Obama and Holder in the harshest terms. Romney is a supporter of BRA, not an opponent of it.

  2. I’m glad the Republicans voted for holding that which is contemptible in contempt.

    We need to work this like MAD.

  3. Re: “He’s trying to play it safe and win over independents and moderate voters.”

    Not really so, because he doesn’t TRY. He simply IS safely MODERATE.

    But one could IMAGINE that, maybe, he’s been a racialist conservative SLEEPER all these years.

  4. Don’t worry one bit! It things get too hot, the Republican establishment has Obama’s back. They’ll fein a conservative stance for show, then circle around on us.

  5. Obama and Holder deliberately let those guns go to Mexico in hopes using the violence to advance the gun control agenda. I remember a few years ago, before the “Fast and Furious” scandal I was watching the news on morning when they broke away to cover an Obama press conference at the border. Obama then went on to read the teleprompter, something to the effect of “Some people say we don’t have any problems along our border…I disagree…GUNS FLOW FREELY SOUTH ACROSS OUR BORDER and drugs flow into the United States.” Just think of the leftist Chutzpa of that statement, the main problem at the border is redefined to be the fault of white peoples gun laws, the narcotraffic is reduced to an after statement, and NO WHERE AT ALL IS THE FLOODING OF OUR COUNTRY BY ILLEGAL ALIENS EVEN MENTIONED. After seeing that I had no problem at all instantly concluding Fast and Furious was a deliberate attempt designed to justify gun control by the Obama regime.

    Wayne, yes, you nailed it.

    The Holder contempt vote was a GOPs dog and pony show. The vote was at the committee level, enough to generate some headlines and discussion but substantively meaningless. Boehner and the GOP leaders will ensure the full Housenever votes to Holder in contempt. If they do, I’ll be shocked.

    What’s going on here is that the GOP is engaging in theatrics — pretending to care about Holder’s stonewalling and coverup — because Romney is having a hard time connecting with rural gun owners and second amendment types.

    I’ve been impressed with Issa’s determination in going after Holder. But it won’t come to anything since the GOP leaders “have Obama’s back” just like you said. A great way to put it.
