House Holds Eric Holder in Contempt

Led by Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, 108 Democrats skipped the vote, storming out of the chamber in protest.

The measure passed 255-67, with one member voting “present.” Seventeen of the Democrats who didn’t walk out voted with the Republican majority to hold Holder in contempt of Congress. Two Republicans, Reps. Steven LaTourette of Ohio and Scott Rigell of Virginia, opposed the resolution.

What ‘Contempt of Congress’ Means

The vote marks the first time in the history of Congress that it has found a sitting U.S. attorney general in contempt of Congress.

What happens to Holder next? If Congress wants to impeach him, ABC’s Matt Negrin reported last week, it will have to go through the Justice Department, which holder leads.

The Justice Department isn’t compelled to prosecute the attorney general, according to a Reagan-era memo from the Office of Legal Counsel. Peter Shane, an expert of executive privilege at Ohio State, noted that this could lead to a standoff between Congress and the agency.

Later Thursday, the House voted on a second civil contempt resolution, which authorized the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to initiate or intervene in judicial proceedings to enforce its subpoena.

Attempts – And Failures – At Compromise

Congressional GOP sources say the Oversight and Government Reform committee will now work with the House general counsel to pursue the case in federal court and ultimately compel Holder to hand over the documents.

”We are still fighting for the truth and accountability – for the family of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, for whistleblowers who have faced retaliation, and for countless victims of Operation Fast and Furious in Mexico,” Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the committee, said in a statement after the vote. ”Unless President Obama relents to this bipartisan call for transparency and an end to the cover-up, our fight will move to the courts where we will prevail in getting the documents that the Justice Department and President Obama’s flawed assertion of executive privilege have denied the American people.”

Congress v. Holder: Despite 'bombshell' wiretap, Obama declines to investigate top cop

The US Department of Justice declined to investigate its own chief, Eric Holder, after the House cited him for criminal contempt over the Fast and Furious scandal. But House Republicans say they’ve found a ‘bombshell’ document that suggests DOJ officials knew more than they let on.

The Justice Department declined on Friday to investigate its own boss, Attorney General Eric Holder, for congressional contempt, even as House Republicans revealed evidence tying some of the government’s top law enforcement officers directly to the Fast and Furious “gun-walking” program, and, by association, the death of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Mr. Holder became the first Cabinet member in history to be cited for contempt of Congress, after he refused to share documents related to a short-lived ATF sting operation in Arizona tied to hundreds of deaths in Mexico and the killing of Mr. Terry in a desert shootout in 2010, where two such guns were found.

Operation Fast and Furious was the largest and most audacious incarnation of a controversial tactic dating back to the Bush administration: Allow known “straw buyers” to buy and deliver US-bought weapons illegally in Mexico, and then build cases against the cartel boss recipients.

But while the sting did yield suspects, it fell apart when 1,400 guns bought under federal supervision in Arizona started turning up at murder scenes in Mexico. Unlike the Bush-era gun-walking programs, the Mexican government says it knew nothing of Fast and Furious. But did Washington?

Whether the disappearance of the weapons is the fault of local ATF agents trying to uphold the law or federal prosecutors overseeing the cases is at the heart of the congressional probe. And therein lies the contempt charge against Holder, whom the House, by a vote of 255 to 67, agreed has stonewalled a 16-month investigation to figure it all out.

The White House says Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa, the chief Republican interlocutors, are on a cynical fishing expedition for political dirt, to which the Cabinet won’t condescend. So strongly do congressional Democrats support Holder that dozens walked out of the Capitol on Thursday, arms linked, in protest of a Republican “witch hunt.”

Certainly, Messrs. Issa and Grassley have utilized the power of the minority party to investigate the majority, including the central question of whether higher ups have “blood on their hands” for either approving, participating in, or ignoring the ill-advised program.

On Friday, Issa dropped a letter into the Congressional Record where he writes to Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the panel, that a series of sealed Fast and Furious wiretaps approved by major players in Holder’s DOJ contained a “startling” amount of information and detail about the operation.

For his part, Holder testified on June 7 that “nothing in those affidavits as I’ve reviewed them … indicates that gunwalking was allowed.”

But in his letter, Issa wrote, “The fact that ATF knew that Target 1 had acquired 852 firearms and had the present intent to move them to Mexico should have prompted (Justice Department) officials to act … and shut him and his network down.”

He goes on to say: “The wiretap affidavit details that agents were well aware that large sums of money were being used to purchase a large number of firearms, many of which were flowing across the border.”

The affidavits Issa quotes from were approved in March 2010 by DOJ attorneys in Washington. In early 2011, Holder told Congress he had just heard about the program.

A Democratic committee staffer told Roll Call newspaper that Issa’s letter contains unspecified inaccuracies, and that Democrats “won’t stoop to [Issa’s] level” to address “desperate and unsubstantiated claims.”

With the DOJ decision to not investigate Holder, the wiretap letter will likely push Congress to hire its own investigator, though the House will probably stop short of appointing a special prosecutor or actually arresting Holder, which it has to the power to do.

In his letter to Issa on Friday, Deputy Attorney General James Cole said Obama’s decision to invoke executive privilege validates the legality of Holder’s decision to ignore the congressional subpoena – and has precedent in similar actions taken by both Republican and Democratic administrations in the past.

“We will not prosecute an executive branch official under the contempt of Congress statute for withholding subpoenaed documents pursuant to a presidential assertion of executive privilege,” Mr. Cole writes. DOJ has “determined that the Attorney General’s response to the subpoena [from the Oversight Committee] does not constitute a crime, and therefore the Department will not bring … the contempt citation before a grand jury or take any other action to prosecute the Attorney General.”

The Obama White House, with the help of Democrats, activists, and liberal commentators, have tried to stay above the fray, painting Issa’s committee as empty political theater featuring Holder as the straw man for paranoid conspiracies about Second Amendment politics and cover-ups.

At the same time, Issa’s credibility has taken a hit, especially after insinuating without proof that Fast and Furious may have been part of a broader political strategy by Democrats in Washington to covertly provide arms to Mexican cartels in order to build a case domestically for tighter gun controls. (It’s that notion that led the National Rifle Association to announce it would score the Holder contempt vote, which likely played into 17 Democrats crossing the aisle and voting with Republicans.)

But politics aside, large questions do remain, piqued by a series of misstatements and walk-backs by Holder.

Holder has prevaricated on when, exactly, he first knew about the program, and he had to acknowledge a major error when he retracted a letter to Congress stating that the ATF, a Justice agency, never allowed guns to “walk” into Mexico – a statement that turned out to be false, and acknowledged as such by Holder.

At the heart of the documents Congress now wants is most likely what was said between the White House and Justice after the scandal broke.

This week, emails were released indicating that Holder was demanding, as the scandal broke, to find out what happened, suggesting that he was as in the dark as he has claimed about the operation. Since the story broke in early 2011, Fast and Furious has been shut down, half a dozen officials and agents have resigned or been reassigned, and Holder has apologized to the family of Brian Terry.

Good research, I lived in Tucson for awhile. You can tell the Mexican bad asses. Obama is a fraud his lack of a birth certificate is because his real daddy is Frank Marshall Davis a commie from Chicago. His mother was a hooker who was wacked in the head with a pimp daddy.

Hey see what you can find out about a war with Iran and if Russia will back them. Russia makes 9 billion a year in weapon sales to Syria. So I know they don't want there cash cow Iran to go under as Libya did.

Obama, yes. Obama's stripper porn star mom Ann Dunham was jewish, his grandfather was jewish. He only lived in jew neighborhoods. Otherwise he would never be allowed to be "president".

Holder's parents were born in Barbados not USA (another illegal alien anchor baby), and his ancestors were slaves on jewish plantations, so probably there's jew blood in him, same as Colin Powell.

Holder and Obama do everything the jew banksters want, especially israel.

My sis the "proud marxist" lived in Tuscon, hiring only illegal aliens to clean her little house. Coincidentally, she was burgled 3 times.

China has huge business contracts with Iran, so war on Iran is war on china= WW3. Marxist Obama gives all Iraqi oil to Israel to sell to Commie China at $2/BARREL, then china sells it at $120/barrel. USSA always arms its enemies, to overthrow USA for the NWO/JWO.

Eric holder ran the OK City bombing, Beware the Reichstag Fire
https://www.google.com/search?q=eric+holder+oklahoma+city+bombing

Quote:

Documents obtained by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show
then Clinton Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder authorized members of the FBI to provide explosives to Oklahoma
City bombing criminals Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols immediately prior to the April, 1995 bombing of the Alfred
P. Murrah building.

Holder had authorized the FBI to provide the explosives to McVeigh and Nichols in conjunction with a Clinton
Administration undercover operation named PATCON, an acronym for “Patriot Conspiracy.” As Jesse Trentadue describes
it, “PATCON was designed to infiltrate and incite… militia[s] and evangelical Christians to violence so that the
Department of Justice could crush them.”

Shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing, Holder instructed FBI agents to recover from Terry Nichols any remainder of
the explosives the Bureau had provided him and McVeigh. To the chagrin of Eric Holder, the explosives were later
discovered by another agency, complete with the fingerprints of Nichols, McVeigh and 2 FBI agents. Holder had
reportedly offered Nichols respite from the death penalty for his cooperation in recovering the explosives.

Obviously the Deputy Attorney General considered covering up his criminal complicity in the bombing eminently
worth sparing Nichols just punishment for the murders of 168 innocent Americans.

Jesse Trentadue accidentally came across PATCON while investigating the murder of his brother Kenneth at the hands
of the Clinton Department of Justice. An FBI informant familiar with the Oklahoma City bombing story, Kenneth was
found hanged in his cell after having been jailed by the FBI. Though an official FBI report had listed Kenneth as a
suicide, it was obvious that he had been severely beaten and his throat cut. (Link to Picture Of Kenneth Trentadue’s
Body: Warning: May Be Disturbing To Some)

The only reason nixon resigned was his Watergate burglers shot JFK in the head. The Harvard Crimson reported the Watergate committee did investigate Nixon's link to assassinating JFK via Op;eration Northwoods.

The corporate disinfotainment media is working overtime to coverup FF. Iran Contra is still ongoing. Who gave Iran nukes -- Dick Cheney and Israel, after bribing Iran with free F14Ss to kidnap US embassy employees. 55-million were murdered in WW2, how many billions will be murdered in World War 3...
