House Finds 1st Black U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in Contempt Over 'Fast and Furious' Investigation

The GOP-led House voted Thursday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to provide key information pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, making Holder the first sitting Cabinet member to be held in contempt.

The vote was 255 to 67. Seventeen Democrats joined the majority of Republicans in voting yes. GOP Rep. Dan Lipinski voted not present, and 65 Democrats left the floor before the vote.

The vote follows a roughly 16-month investigation by the chamber’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee into the failed gun-running sting known as Fast and Furious -- run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a division of the Justice Department led by Holder.

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa filed two subpoenas over that period requesting additional information, but has most recently focused on more information related to a February 2011 letter to Congress that falsely claimed ATF was unaware the operation involved the underground sale of assault weapons.

“Today’s vote is the regrettable culmination of what became a misguided -- and politically motivated -- investigation during an election year,” Holder said after the vote. “By advancing it over the past year and a half, Congressman Issa and others have focused on politics over public safety.”

Prior to the vote, House John Boehner, R-Ohio, said, “It’s important to remember how we got here. The Justice Department has not provided the facts and information we requested. … It’s our constitutional duty to find out.”

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued House Republicans were more politically motivated in attacking Holder than getting to the bottom of the failed operation, in which at least two of the guns were connected to the fatal shooting of U.S. border agent Brian Terry.

“What is happening here is shameful," said Pelosi, D-Calif.

Lawmakers earlier voted against a proposal by Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., to return the matter to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

What the fuck is wrong with Lipinski? These South and Southwest side politicians have become real whores to the machine. Holder has lied and held up releasing information to the House and should be put in jail. Better yet vote his boss out in November.

If any one of us were to be called before the U.S. Congress and asked to supply information from one date to another date adn we failed to obey their requeest, what would happen to us? Fuck Holder, Fuck Pelosi, Fuck Obama........ the same goes for Harry Reid. I am sick to my stomach hearing the same race card bull shit coming out of these so called educated people. You educated people want to hear something racial...."Hey nigger Holder, go get your papers and turn them in to the U.S. Congrees as you were asked to while you are at it get Obama and both of you get your shine boxes."

Vote these no good muther fuckers out of Office before our country is totally ruined.

Blacks & Browns = CANCER.

Do you think Obuma and Holder care about 2 Fed agents and a couple of hundred beaners killed with the guns Holder provided?

After hearing the supreme's court decision that ruined my morning, I am so happy this fucking shitbag nigger is fucked. This guy is such a liar, he's so arrogant I can't even look at him. He's also Barry's homey so I guess he thought nothing will happen to him. This whole operation was a flase flag to blame it on the 2nd ammendment and take our guns away. We can't let that happen. Tyranny is here already but most sheeple have no clue. I hope he rots in the joint.

Dan Lipinski is not a GOP rep, he is a Democrat. He is a total Chicago political elite hack, appointed by his daddy and needs to be voted out ASAP!

A vote for a Democrat is a vote against the hard working, tax paying people of Illinois.

He looks an awful lot like Oprah's beard,Stedman! This country is so fucked. I blame everyone that is not registered to vote! Especially the coppers who are afraid to register for fear of jury duty. They are too stupid to figure out that they use drivers license info now. This shit wouldn't be in the white house and a border patrol agents life may have been spared. Vote in November as if our lives depend on it!

No feet comment here.

A Border Patrolman has been killed and dickhead Holder is to blame!

Who cries for the Border Patrolman's family?

How about the 200 or so mexican nationals, largely going about their business gunned down in Mexico?


Call you non representing representatives and tell them a contempt charge is not enough!

Tell these clowns to pass a bill calling for Holder's termination! Barack wont sign it, but his non signing of this bill could be another nail in his coffin!

re: obamacare, Justice Roberts might have dealt us a solid on this. Enough conservatives (even conservatives with a foot fetish!) might mobilize against Obama. Think about it.

Wow, the Chicago White House Connection strikes Again!

After a Contempt finding by the House, it is up to the District Attorney for Washington DC to decide if criminal charges will be filed against Holder. Dont know if that person is a Republican, Democrat, or what, but a relative of mibne in DC said not likely to happen.
It is still embarassing for Obama to have the vote turn out like that, even if nothing happens to Holder.

Stupid white man voted for Negro Obama

White liberals sought to cleanse our racist souls by voting for a negro. Joy to the world! America is done.

Do liberals have some kind of perverted S&M

Nothing will happen. What u s attorney is going to sue his boss for contempt. It is a big show and thats all. Most of the dems walked out during the vote. Wisconsin again. The only recourse is to vote the silver back out of office. Then we can throw him in the compound at brookfield zoo with jojo.
