Issa Drafts Contempt of Congress Order Over Holder's Fast & Furious Incomplete Responses

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa has circulated a lengthy pair of documents making the case for holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over his “refusal” to cooperate in an investigation of the ill-fated Fast and Furious operation.

Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, on Thursday sent to every member of his committee a 64-page draft contempt order against Holder, as well as a 17-page memo outlining the history of the scandal.

“Operation Fast and Furious’ outrageous tactics, the Justice Department’s refusal to fully cooperate with the investigation and efforts to smear and retaliate against whistleblowers have tainted the institutional integrity of the Justice Department,” Issa wrote.

    Agent Terry and his family are still waiting for justices!

  2. jong says:

    And of course Issa has the votes.   Justice for Terry and pink undies for Holder.   Dont worry Eric you boyfriend and boss Obama may be joining you shortly in Arizona with Sheriff Joe

      I agree with you, but have little faith in justice prevailing. Millions of us wish Holder to be kicked out and imprisoned, and for Obama to be run out of town on a donkey. These two clowns are just pawns on the Soros Chessboard. The real enemy is Soros. Why is this old nazi still walking around without being in some jail for Nazis?

  3. Ltjg says:

    I am proud of Issa but also feel he has been too tolerant and too patient. Contempt charges should have been enforced long ago.

  4. Remington 870 says:

    A White House deal was made months ago between Coward Boehner, Obama & Holder to slow the investigation so Obama will have an election without scandal. It is obvious Rep. Issa has been told to move slowly with this investigation, which should have already removed Communist Holder a long time ago. Thanks to Ohio’s proud son Boehner, this investigation is programed to last past the election. Boehner sold us out two years ago.

    does this mean, if holder is found ” in contempt of congress” it will be entered on his permanent record ?

    Issa is taking to much time he knows the SOB is guilty.

  7. Csrozier says:

    Not only should Holder be impeached, but several should be with him… Their punishment should include their retirement should be given up.. Like the military when crimes of similiar nature. IF IT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR OUR MILITARY, IT SHOULD BE THE SAME FOR OUR LEADERS…

  8. shortitalian says:

    It does’nt matter what Holder,Obama and the rest of his crooked bunch get caught doing.All they get is a slap on the wrist and continue to break laws.If the average taxpaying citizens break the law,they would be in jail.Obama has fooled the Democrats and illegals for over three years now and all the liberals are scared of him and his minions  so nothing will happen to him or Holder.

  9. Apollo says:

    It’s time for the tickling with a feather to stop and it’s time to start kicking him in the nut’s over the F&F scandal.

  10. Samtman says:

    REp. Issa has some answeres of his own to explain, how did his family find out about alll that land they bought for shopping centers to be built , new Interstate on and off ramps werer going to be built, housing projects were going to be build, even airports. They bought the land at 5 cents on the dollar and sold it for very large profits. You cam only know these things if know somebody in high places and payola.

  11. Bob says:

    ERIC HOLDER and OBAMA an CZARS are the scum of the earth and deserve to be imprisoned the rest of their lifes.  

  12. Bob says:

    The REPUBLICANS don’t have a clean house for sure some of them are no better them OBAMA’S BUNCH.AND NEED TO BE IMPRISONED ALONE WITH OBAMA and his BUNCH.

       I agree,Bob,the “DEMONIC-RATS” and the “REPUBLI-CAN’TS” are both “BRANCHES” of the same “ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT TREE” !!!
