What will the full House do?
Well the sub-committee voted along party lines for the contempt charge against Holder over Fast & Furious. It went along party lines as most should’ve expected, with the Democrats saying this is about politics. Certainly there is some being played but not for the Terry family along with many others effected by the gun running program. Obama issuing the executive privilege only adds more speculation about what, who and when did the white house learn about the program. The Democrats can cry foul all they want, we the American people should be demanding to know all the facts from Holder. Their claim that they have been cooperating is very weak and of course most of the MSM only focus on politics of the matter.
There is a couple of easy solutions the White House and Holder could do, it would stop the contempt charge immediately. They need to have a special prosecutor or give the documents that they refuse to give to the sub-committee for review. This would allow even sensitive documents to be reviewed, of course neither of these options would happen very quickly. The full house will vote sometime next week unless something change but nobody in the White House will likely lose any sleep over it. Even if it passes the contempt charge goes to the DOJ, doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out they will do nothing with it. The Terry family has my continued sympathy for this whole mess and my contmept is certainly aimed at Holder, the White House along with the DOJ
