    House holds holder in contempt [W:140

    Well, at least one branch of the government got something right today.

    About as bi-partisan as one would hope as well.

    17 democrat voted along with Republican's.

    The 255-67 vote to hold Holder in contempt sends a pretty firm message that he needs to comply with the Congressional committee's requests.

    Seventeen democrats in the House seem to agree.

    re: House holds holder in contempt [W:140

    It now looks like House Republicans are attempting to do an end around on the DOJ by bypassing the standard practice of assigning the US Attorney from the District of Columbia to prosecute the case and instead using a special prosecutor in civil court in order to prosecute it. Another smart move by one branch of the gov't today. Who in their right mind wants a US Attorney, who reports to the very man just held in contempt, investigating the same guy? It wouldn't work. I'm pretty sure this will pass as well.

    It just doesn't make sense that people who loved the EP when Bush was in office hates it now, seems like nothing but a political witch-hunt.

    Yawn...At least that is the end of this sham. Good riddance. Except if we can get some indictments for ISSA and his fraudulent statements.

    Who can blame them. The NRA made the vote a litmus test for their A rating, in some districts that is important. Besides there are no clothes on this emperor and it is the end of it. No harm done.
