Eric Holder is the first Attorney General held in contempt 01:52

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  •  House passes a measure also authorizing civil action against Holder 
  • House passes criminal contempt measure against Attorney General Eric Holder
  • Holder dismisses vote as "politically motivated"
  • At issue is whether Holder complied with a subpoena from congressional investigators
 
The House of Representatives voted Thursday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to turn over documents tied to the botched Fast and Furious gun-running sting -- a discredited operation that has become a sharp point of contention between Democrats and Republicans in Washington. 
The House approved a pair of criminal and civil measures against the attorney general, marking the first time in American history that the head of the Justice Department has been held in contempt by Congress.
House members approved the criminal contempt measure in a 255-67 vote. Almost every House Republican backed the measure, along with 17 Democrats. Shortly thereafter, the civil measure passed in a sharply polarized 258-95 vote.
A large number of Democrats -- including members of the Congressional Black Caucus and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi -- walked off the House floor in protest and refused to participate in the criminal contempt vote. A slightly smaller number of Democrats appeared to boycott the vote on the civil measure as well. 
Speaking in New Orleans, Holder dismissed the House action as "the regrettable culmination of what became a misguided -- and politically motivated -- investigation during an election year." In a written statement, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer blasted congressional Republicans for pushing "political theater rather than legitimate congressional oversight."
 
 
Yep. You guys are hypocrites.

Clueless Teabaggers/Trumpoids......

 

On September 19, 2012, the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz publicly released a 471-page report detailing the results of the Justice Department's own internal investigations. The Inspector General's report, which had access to evidence and interviews with witnesses not permitted in previous Congressional reports, recommended 14 federal officials for disciplinary action, ranging from ATF agents to federal prosecutors involved in the Fast and Furious operation. It found "no evidence" that Attorney General Holder knew about Fast and Furious before early 2011. It found no evidence that previous Attorneys General had been advised about gunwalking in Operation Wide Receiver."

The Inspector General’s Report on 2016 FBI Spying Reveals a Scandal of Historic Magnitude: Not Only for the FBI but Also the U.S. Media

December 12 2019, 10:44 a.m.

JUST AS WAS TRUE when the Mueller investigation closed without a single American being charged with criminally conspiring with Russia over the 2016 election, Wednesday’s issuance of the long-waited report from the Department of Justice’s Inspector General reveals that years of major claims and narratives from the U.S. media were utter frauds.

Yes, we remember, and it was politically motivated.

 

The problem your side has, is the way Obama was treated from day one will not be forgotten., and there is payment owed for that. You haven't even made a down payment on it yet. 

 

Wait until enough Boomers are dead, and Millennials, and Generation Z really start making you pay for it.

OK, so you're OK with Trump refusing to cooperative with this political witch hunt.

Don't make threats that'll end with a lot of Millennials and Gen Z'ers prematurely deceased.
