It was NOT an extension of ‘Wide Receiver’. Fast and Furious did not start in 2006. That’s just another LIE pushed by the Obama Admin and it’s Media sycophants. F and F started in 2009, without the knowledge of the Mexican Government and without any trackers being placed in the guns. They are trying to pretend they aren’t responsible again.........gad, it gets TIRESOME!

What happened with the Impeach Holder filing? It was supposedly going to be presented on Thursday. Holder is a POS and should have been indicted back in the 90’s.

It seems this turkey Holder is pretty worried that the House is doing nothing, isn’t he? He belongs in a federal slammer.

It was NOT an extension of ‘Wide Receiver’....Wide Receiver was shut down, scrapped, recognized as a disaster, investigated and obliterated as of 2007.

Just another area where Congress has ceded power for no good reason. If Boehner had any balls he would have Holder locked up in the Capitol building right now.

Let us know when the House actually accomplishes something practical. So far...just meetings and a half-hearted showboat attempt to hold him in contempt that means and results in nothing.

Friday night request ...

But of course! Trying to sneak it by the news media, under the cover of darkness and the weekend.

“Attorney General Eric Holder wants to appeal a recent judge’s ruling that allows the House to continue with its contempt case”

Hmmmmmmm wondering why, the contempt will not stop him from anything so what is the motive behind this new move, what is he up to?

All the purported "opposition party" ever does is shout, "Me, too! Me, too!" and advance the Democratic [sic] party's agenda.

If Holder's contempt citation is upheld by the court I would say the House has followed a practical course.

“If Holder’s contempt citation is upheld by the court I would say the House has followed a practical course. “

It results in NOTHING. He gets no punishment nor does the House, We the People, compel him to testify about the facts.

Actually Jackson is the judge that rejected the request to have the case dismissed.

It sounds like he’s asking the same judge to let it go to an appeal before three judges. Sounds strange to me but I’m no legal beagle.

If you want practical then start impeachment hearings on the fact that the President illegally sold guns across national boundaries that resulted in hundreds of Americans and Mexicans and federal agents getting killed.

A contempt citation does nothing but maybe send Holder to jail, and with this spineless Republican party I would literally bet my life they won’t, and supposedly compel him to testify, which he doesn’t have to do and the President can pardon him from any congressional jail time.

We the People, compel him to testify about the facts.

We the people will have much more public support with impeachment if the Judge rules the documents are to be released. Any incriminating info can then be used to build a case.

What kind of impeachment would it be if the documents are still under court seal and you couldn't use them in a proceeding?

Pardon me, but you've got to have proof of your assertion.

And, in order to establish such proof, you've got to gain access to the DOJ e-mails, notes and phone logs which are the subject of the Contempt action.

Capiche?

We have enough proof. We don’t need his testimony for that.

This is nothing but the eGOP stonewalling us for justice. They don’t WANT to take any action.

We have the guns, the serial numbers, testimony from gun brokers, video, audio, witness testimony, dead US federal agents, dead Americans, dead Mexicans, dead Mexican federal agents, INS/BP confiscations of the firearms, etc.

We’ve got more evidence right now than we’ve had against anyone on death row.

Read my #44. That, and imagine an impeachment whereby Zero even admits there are document he refuses to release. Nothing says guilt to the masses than that.

I wonder if anyone is going to request that he have his law license revoked for ethics violations? The contempt citation is sufficient grounds for a complaint to the Bar Association.

I believe that anyone can complain to the Bar association where Holder is admitted (I’d guess DC). Maybe some savvy organization like Landmark Legal Foundation could do a particularly effective job, but there should be lots of people able to initiate action. I remember fondly when Bill Clinton was disbarred. It is only just that wrongdoers be held to account.

Zero has already refused to release documents (the EO). And the masses yawn.

Better to wait till the judge rules. If she rules against Obama/Holder then the masses will pay more attention.
