    Congressional Republicans Thursday took the first formal steps toward holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt, issuing a draft of their complaint against him for his handling of the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal.

    The 44-page complaint, issued by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., asks the full House to hold Holder in contempt for “failure to comply with a congressional subpoena.”

    Issa uses damning language to make the case against Holder, saying that his Department of Justice holds “contempt against the American people,” and claiming that whistleblower agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were “left to twist in the wind” by Holder and Justice.

    Granny says it smells like one big cover-up to her...
    :eusa_eh:
    Papers show Justice was told about tactics in gunrunning
    Tuesday, June 5, 2012 - Court-sealed wiretap applications obtained by a House committee show that senior Justice Department officials in Washington, contrary to previous denials, were given specific information about the “reckless tactics” in the botched Fast and Furious gunrunning investigation, the panel’s chairman said Tuesday.

    June 05, 2012 - A House investigative committee said Tuesday it has obtained new information from wiretaps related to the Obama administration?s Operation Fast and Furious that suggests high-ranking officials know more than they are telling Congress about the flawed weapons sting.

    I remember when they did this to the Bush squad. They just laughed it off. I imagine the dems will probably not take that rout.

    I'd argue they might not have a choice as to how they "take it". You do know what rout means? "Defeat".:lol:

    What took them so long?

    They've been far more patient with Holder than they ever should have been.

    About time...I didn't believe a word he said when this all began.
    This is such an utterly f*ck up that no matter what - they cannot admit to it....yet...it is impossible that such a program existed without them knowing it.
