Contempt of Congress Charges Being Read to Him Now...
...let's see where this goes...
Congress won't do anything.
Issa will be "suicided".
Americans will care more about the upcoming NFL season.
Obama will pardon him.
Sadly, that sounds accurate.
Who is doing this reading?
I understand from a story linked via Drudge that Issa says the "untimely" assertion by the Justice Department of Executive Privilege is not going to delay the contempt vote.
(A) the claim is actually the President's claim.
(B) until the CLAIM of Executive Privilege is addressed, properly, I think it's a mistake to vote out a contempt citation.
But, we will see soon enough, I guess.
Senator Grassley's comments...
“How can the president assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement? How can the president exert executive privilege over documents he’s supposedly never seen? Is something very big being hidden to go to this extreme? The contempt citation is an important procedural mechanism in our system of checks and balances."
turning on the news now
What's the punishment for contempt of congress? Do they have the willingness to pull the trigger, or will it become a party line BS?
You could not be more wrong, it's college season I care for, even more than politics or this site.
CNN is covering the FLA voter purge.
