    "The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress despite a last-minute intervention by President Obama.

    By a vote of 23 to 17 after nearly six hours of tense discussion, the bipartisan committee voted for contempt over the Justice Department's decision to withhold documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that were subpoenaed by the committee in their investigation of the failed gunwalking operation."

    Of Course Obama had to stick his skinny little finger in it, Obama is worried about his neck being next.

    Both of them need to be held accountable for this and a few other things, bunch of Chicago Punks.
