Issa Plans To Move On (Updated)

Move on with contempt of Congress vote.


House Republicans plan to press on with consideration Wednesday by the Oversight and Government Reform Committee of a vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress regarding a stand-off over documents tied to the botched Fast and Furious" sting operation.
The announcement Tuesday night by committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., followed a closed-door meeting at the Capitol between Issa and other Republican and Democratic lawmakers with Holder at the U.S. Capitol. Issa described himself as disappointed and still hoping for a breakthrough.
Everyone in that room knew Holder wasn't going to produce anything that would be helpful or truthful.
But Issa said, "Today, the Attorney General informed us that the Department would not be producing those documents. The only offer they made involved us ending our investigation."
"While I still hope the Department will reconsider its decision so tomorrow's vote can be postponed, after this meeting I cannot say that I am optimistic. At this point, we simply do not have the documents we have repeatedly said we need to justify the postponement of a contempt vote in committee," said Issa.
Time to get this before the full House and boot the thug.
Update:
Eric Holder didn't turn over any new documents. None, zip, zero, nada...

The Progressive critics of the Bush administration, who are always there to Blame Bush for every failure of Obama's seem to be missing in action, and very silent these days. And they seem to be totally ignoring the Executive Privilege order issued in the “Fast and Furious” scandal at the Justice Department.
You never ever mentioned the murder of Brian Terry, a Border Patrol agent gunned down by Mexican criminals.
What is President Obama hiding?
Obama has been caught lying again and again. And what truly surprises me is the fact the American people aren't up in arms over all this as they were over WaterGate!
This might be the mother of all Bull Crap!
By invoking executive privilege ,Obama is just about acknowledging that his attorney general was full crap all along.
Are we talking about about Obamas dismal record?...no.

Are we talking about Obamas dismal economy?...no.

Are we talking about Obamas dismal foreign policy?...no.

Are we talking about RACE? ... no

We're talking about a subject that Obama has kept on the shelf and brought to the fore at a time and place of his choosing and will continue through the election..

And please correct me if I'm wrong, but 2 US agents have been murdered with Holder's weapons, didn't they!!.
Nobody died in Watergate.

Woodward & Bernstein, where are you now?
It is just very sad for the country to have such a man in our White House!
