Issa threatens contempt proceeding against Holder if Justice fails to comply with Fast and Furious subpoenas

The head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is threatening to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress if he fails to comply with congressional subpoenas for documents.

Holder has until Feb. 9 to comply.

In a four-page letter to Holder, Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., claims the Department of Justice has “misrepresented facts and misled Congress,” which began its investigation of Operation Fast and Furious one year ago.

Issa wrote that Holder’s “actions lead us to conclude that the department is actively engaged in a cover-up” because it refuses to comply with previous subpoenas.

Issa Threatens Contempt Proceeding Against Holder If Justice Fails To Comply With Fast And Furious Subpoenas

I will be totally honest here; I have NO proof, of ANY kind regarding who hatched this Fast and Furious debacle, but I am convinced that Eric Holder, as the head of the Department of Justice, had to, at the very least, KNOW about it, if not having actually signed off on its approval.

I am of the opinion that Holder is protecting the *up line*, Barack Hussein Obama.

I am not saying that Obama came up with Fast and Furious on his own, but if he KNEW, and did nothing, he is as complicit in this matter as is anyone else connected to Justice.

I have written opinions on Holder, Obama and Fast and Furious in the past. I have hoped that Fast and Furious would mean the destruction of the Obama regime. So far, it hasn’t happened, and the *foot dragging* by Holder and Company is, in MY opinion, a stalling tactic done to keep it out of the major news cycles until after the November election.

In other words, I believe the Obama administration is engaged, directly, or indirectly, in an effort to take manipulation of justice to a new level.

Eric Holder Claims Racism Responsible for Fast and Furious Criticism. Do you remember that?

But Mr. Holder contended that many of his other critics — not only elected Republicans but also a broader universe of conservative commentators and bloggers — were instead playing “Washington gotcha” games, portraying them as frequently “conflating things, conveniently leaving some stuff out, construing things to make it seem not quite what it was” to paint him and other department figures in the worst possible light.

Of that group of critics, Mr. Holder said he believed that a few — the “more extreme segment” — were motivated by animus against Mr. Obama and that he served as a stand-in for him. “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” he said, “both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

In typical Democrat fashion, any time something goes wrong, or when someone speaks out against Obama or Holder, The Race Card is immediately thrown into play, so much so that The Race Card has NO meaning.

The Race Card has been so overplayed that even if it were to be thrown legitimately, it would most likely be ignored in the political climate of today.

Think of the old fable about ‘The Boy who cried Wolf’.

Not that I put much thought into what Mexico thinks, but, Mexican attorney general: “Obama more involved in Fast & Furious than admitted!”.

In a statement released by Mexican Attorney General Marisela Morales, she called Operation Fast and Furious “an attack on Mexicans’ security.”

Morales told Mexican reporters that she is demanding a full and honest explanation from the United States government especially since evidence is being gathered that reveals the Obama administration was more involved in Operation Fast and Furious than top officials admitted in their sworn statements.

If what is being reported is true, U.S. Attorney General and other government officials may have committed perjury and/or obstruction of justice if it’s proven they lied when testifying before House and Senate committees.

Have you heard another word about this since it was 1st posted? Yeah, me either.

I have to wonder if Marisela Morales didn’t hit a raw nerve with the Obama regime.

Another recent statement I can’t argue with is this: NRA: After “Fast & Furious,” Eric Holder “Can’t be Trusted”.

So far, NRA, 52 U.S. Representatives, two U.S. Senators, and multiple GOP Presidential candidates have called on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign because of his role in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive’s failed “Operation Fast and Furious.”

Holder has steadfastly maintained that he and top Department of Justice officials did not know the scope or details of the operation until they became public earlier this year, but this week, in advance of hearings before the House Judiciary Committee, Holder called the “gun-walking” tactic used in the operation “inexcusable” and “wholly unacceptable.” He went on to say that many of the “walked” guns will likely continue to show up at crime scenes in the U.S. and Mexico.

Personally, I believe Holder can’t be trusted, I believe he should resign and is a damned LIAR, but that’s just me.

When stories like this are posted in the media, ATF ‘Fast and Furious’ secret audio: Murder of Border Patrol agent ‘collateral damage’, one wonders why the media is still far too quiet regarding Fast and Furious.

Not too long ago I posted this: Operation Fast and Furious – Is this Obama’s Waterloo? and I don’t hesitate to say, I was sincerely hoping it was The End for Obama.

I don’t know how much more this nation can take, or will take, but I DO know this, any administration that would take part in a work such as Fast and Furious, and continue to deflect, hide, duck, dodge and avoid any and all inquiries into Fast and Furious, is NOT an administration that should to be in power.

And one last thing; have you heard ANY of the front runners on the GOP side take issue with Obama, Holder, DOJ and Fast and Furious?

    Eric Holder is just another Obama water boy.
    He is a 20+ year career federal, step-n-fetch it employee, who is way over his head in this, another president Obama debacle.
    Being a black male career federal employee, he is almost UN-touchable, unless he has sexually molested a child.
    Only a black female career federal employee, would be harder to fire.
    Most likely, he will beat this charge, by just ignoring it.

    You would be shocked at the percentage of black employees in the federal work force.

    The old adage here: “If you can’t beat them, then join them” holds true for the black employees.

    • Personally, I think child molesters (Safe Schools Czar – Kevin Jennings) are almost as highly valued in the Obama administration as card carrying communists (remember Van Jones – former Green Jobs Czar and Carol Browner – former Energy and Environment Czar to name a few) are. The list or moral degenerates goes on and on.

  2. Issa is just about the last damned Republican left in Fornicalia, with the exception of me an’ Bushwack.

    That said, having worked for the federal side of LE, you don’t make a MOVE on a large case like this unless everyone from your SSA, SAC, AUSA, DC and the AG are “filled in” on what’s transpiring. There are two VERY large reasons for that, in this particular case:

    1. You’re dealing with Mexico (little brown people) and drugs, and
    2. You’re dealing with guns

    You still can’t convince me that the thrust of this operation wasn’t to try to further limit weapons in the United States by pointing out that AMERICAN guns were getting into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

    And here’s the OTHER side of the coin: if Holder did NOT know about the operation, he should be fired for incompetence. And you can be GUARANTEED, since Holder knew, Obama certainly knew. Cut and dried.


    • I know you speak with absolute authority on this subject BZ, but in Socialist State of Amerika, it will all be brushed under the rug by the elite socialist government and their enablers in the main Scream media. I am so sick of liars and charlatans running this country into the ground and the idiots that keep buying into what they are selling!

    I have not heard anything more about the issue of Holder using personal e-mail in discussions. I hope they bring that up again in the hearing as to whether he e-mailed from this account. I thought the Keystone Pipeline would do him in. Hardly a wimper as we are led to the slaughter.

    A little bit of good news this morning: Brian Terry’s family has basically called BS and filed suit.

    Ignore that, Obama and Holder.

  5. God Bless the Terry family. That is great news.
