More hubris from a pompous government corruptocrat.
Attorney General Eric Holder got into a heated argument with a Republican congressman Tuesday over the still-pending contempt case against him.
Holder was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee when Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, began pressing him for documents in a separate investigation. Gohmert brought up an apparent sore spot, referencing the 2012 House vote finding Holder in contempt of Congress.
“I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said.
A visibly annoyed Holder said: “You don’t want to go there, buddy.” Leaning back in his chair, he added, “You don’t want to go there, okay?”
“I don’t want to go there?” Gohmert responded.
Holder went on to say that the congressman “should not assume that that is not a big deal to me.”
“I think that it was inappropriate and it was unjust, but never think that was not a big deal to me. Don’t ever think that,” Holder said, pointing his finger.
Gohmert defended his line of inquiry, saying he’s “just looking for evidence … and there have been no indications that it was big deal because your department has still not been forthcoming in producing the documents that were the subject of contempt.”
The exchange ended when Gohmert told Holder he didn’t need “lectures” from the attorney general. Holder said the same back to Gohmert.
The attorney general, one of the longest-serving and most controversial members of the Obama Cabinet, often has tense encounters with Republicans during congressional hearings.
Holder was held in contempt in 2012 for refusing to provide information on his and Obama’s Fast and Furious gunrunning activities, and his reaction was frivolous to say the least. Apparently, the contempt charge wasn’t a big deal.
He knew about the gunrunning and bragged about it in 2009.
So far, the only one in prison is a measly Mexican lowlife, while the main guilty parties (Obama and Holder) who started the gunrunning operation are still at large.
If Congress really wanted to hold this fuckstick in contempt, they would back it up with a hefty fine and jail time. Any ordinary citizen caught doing what the Obama regime has done for the last five years, would be under the prison.
At least one GOP lawmaker showed some guts and told Holder to his face that he should be in jail.
It still remains to be seen if the rest of them have any courage.
