Yesterday the House Oversight Committee found Eric Holder to be in contempt of Congress:
A US House of Representatives committee has voted along party lines to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
Shortly after the committee vote, House Speaker John Boehner tweeted an ultimatum, saying a full House vote would be held unless Mr Holder co-operated with the inquiry.
Mr Holder’s reaction was swift and combative.
Committee chairman Representative Darrell Issa has “chosen to use his authority to take an extraordinary, unprecedented and entirely unnecessary action, intended to provoke an avoidable conflict between Congress and the Executive Branch,” Mr Holder said.
“This divisive action does not help us fix the problems that led to this operation or previous ones and it does nothing to make any of our law enforcement agents safer,” he said, calling it “an election-year tactic”.
Unprecedented and entirely unnecessary action? Really? After refusing to hand over documents requested by Congress and receiving help to coverup his crime from Obama he feels that the vote to find him in contempt was unnecessary? He is partially correct, this action was avoidable. Had here handed over the documents requested the contempt vote would not have been necessary. If we go back even further this entire investigation would have been entirely unnecessary had the United States government not been smuggling guns into Mexico and arming the drug cartels.
I wonder if we’ll ever find out exactly who knew what in this case. Will Holder eventually hand over the documents or will they be destroyed in order to prevent the public from learning what really happened? Yes, after all that has happened so far I wouldn’t be surprised if Holder and his goons went so far as to destroy evidence in an attempt to cover their tracks.
