GOP Led Oversight Committee Schedules Holder Contempt Vote

Game on.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has scheduled a vote for next week to consider holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over the controversial Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., released a 64-page memo in early May outlining the case for holding the attorney general in contempt. The chairman based his argument around Holder's failure to respond to an October 2011 subpoena for internal Justice Department documents on the operation.

The committee's vote for contempt is scheduled for June 20.

Speaker Boehner tried to work out a deal to avoid this (some think because of a worry about a backlash over going after the first black Attorney General) but "Justice" didn't budge.

Will there be cries of "Racism"? Sure there always are. And it will likely help Obama on the margins with parts of his base.

On the other hand, being tough on Obama over Fast and Furious will energize parts of the GOP base as well. We will have one other thing going for us....we're in the right trying to get to the truth about how US law enforcement agents and hundreds of Mexicans were killed by the reckless and illegal acts of this administration.
