    House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) predicted Sunday that Republicans and Democrats would vote to find Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress this week.

    “I believe they will, both Republicans and Democrats will vote that,” Issa said on Fox News Sunday. “There are a number of Democrats, 31, who wrote to the administration asking them to be forthcoming. Many of them will stay with us now that the administration has not been.”

    .

    Precisely what do the Republicans have to gain by holding Holder in contempt by a pure party line vote? Are they sure it won't look a wee bit, y'know, blatantly political?

    Yet, it would not be a party line vote if the dems vote with him as stated, would it?

    The democrats get the chance to give Issa the finger! The Republicans want the truth. We'll see what happens.

    is it supposed to be prophetic that he thinks the extremist GOP'ers in the house will vote to find holder in contempt?

    d'uh...

    not to mention all that is supposed to stop the second there's a claim of executive privilege... but it's not like we can expect issa and the boys to act rationally.
