That was on June 28, 2012, when the House voted by 255-to-67 (including 17 Democrats in favor and two Republicans against) to hold Barack Obamas Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt for failure to turn over documents related to the notorious Operation Fast and Furious (a move by the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Bureau to permit sales of guns to criminals across the Mexican border in the hope it would lead to the capture of drug cartel leaders).
Then-House Minority Leader Pelosi completely ignored the specific charge against Holder and told reporters that the entire concept of holding the attorney general in contempt was a Republican plot to suppress Democratic votes in November.
It is no accident, it is no coincidence, that the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country, Pelosi told reporters a week before the Holder vote, These very same people who are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote. Theyre closely allied with those who are suffocating the system: unlimited special interest secret money.

Because its ALL politics to these jackasses..they are terrified what the IG report is going to show what the Dems did, what we ALL know the Dems did, so they are trying to destroy Barr to stop the report from coming out
Nazi Pelosi and Schucks Choomer are conspiring to suppress the 2020 election vote.
If anyone believes that, it's "I've got a bridge to sell you" time. The real reason was to use it as an excuse to blame the gun trade, to generate anti-gun publicity, and to tip the public into accepting stricter gun laws nationally.
Another possibility is that it was an excuse to arm some of the cartels, notably Sinaloa, that Obama had some relationships with. Frankly, I discount that one, because I think that the cartels have other sources of arms and don't need them acquire them in that fashion. But, if US dealers could be blamed for cartel misdeeds in Mexico, it would, it was hoped, guilt the public into accepting stricter laws.
I just hope Horowitz doesn’t disappoint again.
Obama appointed him, rememeber
Frankly, theres no call for a Speaker to be singing at all.
“...Frankly, theres no call for a Speaker to be singing at all....”
It is all out of the desperation and power-madness of the RATS. They have nothing for America except their hate, crimes, and wealth-taking. And their big mouths...
“...the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country...”
Inasmuch as “Nanny” Pelosi is a notorious & KNOWN liar, WHY would anyone “of normal IQ” believe anything that she (or any other DIMocRAT liar/skunk) claims??
I'm guessing the corrupt jerks at the Washington Post don't remember this - - and if they do they'll hit themselves with a hammer to forget. Screw you Carl Bernstein ...
You got it, the whole scam was an attempt to bolster the “90% of cartel guns come from US gun stores” like that PIAPS and Øbowel had been screeching.
Actually “Suckie Chuckie” Schumer & “Nanny” Pelosi want to do the exact opposite. - They want to increase the number of votes, by insuring that a maximum of ILLEGAL alien & felons votes are unlawfully cast in 2020 & in succeeding elections.
In 2016, Nancy brought a Congressional delegation to Mexico City to meet with Mexican dignitaries. Pelosi told the Mexican president and his entourage: We come here as a bipartisan and large delegation to express our respect for the people of Mexico and the country of Mexico; to acknowledge our shared border and our shared values and to learn more about how we can work together for the bright future for not only our two countries but for our hemisphere.
Pelosi later said the Congressional delegation had a busy time in Mexico City. We heard a sermon on the importance of workers in Mexico, a view we share. Weve met with members of the American Chamber of Commerce. We had a very beneficial meeting with Director General Zapata on the subject of the economy and on the subject of TPP (trade pact) especially.
"And then we had a glorious meeting, a really very thorough exchange of subjects and views again about our shared values and our shared border with the President [of Mexico]......with Members of the Federal Deputies Mexican Federal Deputies and Senators. And in the evening we had a dinner meeting with the Mexican Foreign Minister, Pelosi said.
PELOSI DEMEANS AMERICAN CITIZENS WHILE ON MEXICAN SOIL
PELOSI SLAMS DONALD TRUMP TO MEXICAN OFFICIALS
(BEFORE TRUMP GOT THE NOM AND GOT ELECTED BY 63 MILLION AMERICANS)
CIRCA 2016----Pelosi in Mexico telling Mexican officials Trump is speaking to an "insecure minority," who maybe lost their job and
think it was because of immigration, or trade. I think it's putting too much weight on all this. Trump only has one half of one half, 25%."
The 2016 Congressional delegation to Mexico also included Democrat Reps. Norma Torres, Lucille Roybal-Allard, Pete Aguilar and Linda Sanchez (Calif.); Beto O'Rourke and Henry Cuellar (Texas); Ruben Gallego (Ariz.); Michelle Lujan Grisham (N.M.); and Republicans Michael Fitzpatrick (Pa.) and Richard Hanna (N.Y.).
SCHADENFREUD Beto sucked-up bigtime for latino votes....but still lost his Texas race against Cruz.
