Breaking: House votes to find Attorney General in contempt of Congress

Written By: Bob - Jun• 28•12

In what appears to be a 255-67 votes with 17 Democrats crossing over to vote with Republicans, the House of Representatives have voted to find Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. 100 craven Democrats walked out of the vote in their version of a temper tantrum.

    Send the Obama campaign a courtesy email informing them your donation to the Romney campaign:

    Dear Mr. Obama,
    I agree with you that this election will be the most important one in our lifetimes. The contrast between the candidates for president has never been sharper and the stakes for the nation have never been higher.

    In view of your persistent attacks on civil and religious liberty, property rights and national sovreignty, I have judged you unfit for the office you seek to retain. Consequently, I have contributed $— to the Romney campaign.

    Sincerely,

    this is a common tactic, if you want to call it that, of dumocrats. wherever.
    when redistricting texas, they fled to oklahoma first, new mexico second.
    in wisconsin, they fled across state lines to prevent a vote on the collective bargaining agreement legistlation.
    they are always running away from the fight.
    why do these people have the approval ratings/incumbency they do?
    oh wait, i know.

    Rep Issa has posted the details of the wiretap applications

    • Neo says:

      In the midst of a fiery floor debate over contempt proceedings for Attorney General Eric Holder, House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) quietly dropped a bombshell letter into the Congressional Record.

      The May 24 letter to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), ranking member on the panel, quotes from and describes in detail a secret wiretap application that has become a point of debate in the GOP’s “Fast and Furious” gun-walking probe.

      The wiretap applications are under court seal, and releasing such information to the public would ordinarily be illegal. But Issa appears to be protected by the Speech or Debate Clause in the Constitution, which offers immunity for Congressional speech, especially on a chamber’s floor.
