    Predictions:

    Congress won't do anything.
    Issa will be "suicided".

    Americans will care more about the upcoming NFL season.

    Sadly, that sounds accurate.

    Who is doing this reading?

    Link?

    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."

    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?
