Well, this is rich. The guy who happens to be in contempt of Congress for unresolved questions and stonewalling over a deadly gunwalking scandal, and whose department is currently under investigation for tapping into a wide swath of AP journalists’ phone records — and who conveniently just can’t seem to remember when it was the he recused himself from what he acknowledges is that very serious case — has zero reservations about dishing out scoldings for other people’s ostensibly unacceptable behavior.

There is that "shame" word again. It must be their new theme.

I would have said, “With all due respect Mr General, this hearing is about your behavior, not mine”.

Gee, that’s not smart... to publicly insult a Congresscritter, and one that is investigating you, too.

RE: "Holy Cow....this is BIG!"
I believe it might have the dimensions as things develop to even be a Holy Smokes. :)

Seriously. The word impeachment looms in the minds of more on both sides of Congress. Reid and Pelosi had better watch their ass. Their own may turn on them if things continue on current glide path.
Many slime balls will put electability ahead of their allegiance to the British subject once things get out of hand for them.

When is somebody going to stand up to this liar and tell him to shut up and listen. The Republicans run from him.

Issa knows what he is doing. That is why he challenged holder’s lies then let him throw a tantrum. Issa has the documents that compromise both Holder and the White Hut.
He needs to get them from the source.

When the court forces the release either Holder will resign claiming political witch hunt or the Nero bus will run him over by claiming they didn’t know anything about it and relied on Holder’s recommended station to claim E.P and firing his butt

I think Holder must either be the dumbest man in America or the most deluded.

We all know Holder is a radical, criminal nut case but the Rinos still let his appointment go through the Senate without a peep.

His credibility as the AG? That’s funny. He’s an evil man; a traitor to the Republic. He’s made an ass out of our justice system.

Mainstream press was carrying one sided versions of the story today, only featuring Holder’s remarks.

Jackson Lee and Maxine Waters are birds of a feather, possibly a split egg, sickening the both of them.

Which will only make him look like a bigger loser when the emails show Holder conspired to commit multiple felonies AND the white hut went along with smuggling arms to Mexican Cartel members to then influence gun control legislation.

Holder’s Career is finished when the court rules against him.

Really??? This man barbequed babies and women at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, kidnapped Elian Gonzalez and sent him back to Castro, and consorted with Black Panthers to threaten White voters. And this crook dares to insult Issa? Too bad duels are now frowned upon, but at the very least, this despicable man should be in prison.

That’s rich coming from the SOB who should be cooling his heels in a Mexican prison for the rest of his life. How many innocent people has Issa gotten killed, Eric?

He basically did not let up on Holder one bit and SJL (UGH!) kept trying to interrupt him and he put the smackdown on her, too.

Holder, you are a poor example of a human due to your immorality and hatred of America.

You are the contemptible one!

Do us a favor and disappear! Leave/Go!
