    Wow. Here we go. Here's where we get to witness "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly".

    Kudos to this Democrat.:eusa_clap:

    " The Democratic Party’s resistance to holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress is crumbling.

    Utah Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson said Tuesday he plans to vote in favor of holding Holder in contempt over his refusal to comply with a subpoena into the Operation Fast and Furious scandal.

    “It just compounds the tragedy when both sides play politics instead of releasing the facts. The Terry family, the public and Congress deserve answers,” Matheson said in remarks first reported by the Salt Lake Tribune in his home state. “Sadly, it seems that it will take holding the attorney general in contempt to communicate that evasiveness is unacceptable.”

    Rumor has it that it will be a bipartisan vote to hold him contempt.
