Issa should have done this a while ago.
From Fox News.
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.
“The Obama administration has not asserted Executive Privilege or any other valid privilege over these materials, and it is unacceptable that the Department of Justice refuses to produce them,” Issa said in a statement Monday, accusing Holder of having “failed to meet his legal obligations.”
He said the Justice Department has “obstructed the investigation,” adding that the department “can still stop the process of contempt” by delivering key documents.
Typical Obama regime; dismissive contempt and disregard for the law and the Constitution. Their hubris is a staple of Dem autocracy in the White House.
Contempt of Congress is just a slap on the wrist. It comes no where near the penalties that Holder should face.
