Washington -- A key congressional Republican who had threatened to bring a contempt citation against Attorney General Eric Holder if he did not comply with a demand for "Operation Fast and Furious" documents by 5 p.m. Thursday, has backed off his stated deadline. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-California, who has the backing of the committee's Republican majority, has granted a Justice Department request for an extension. No new deadline was set. The Justice Department did not dispute the committee statement.

That's the whole deal, they have *The Goods* on him and he is doing their bidding, that simple.
Those who let Holder off are guilty of neglect of duty. They cannot turn away and let him off.
We must throw them all out of office next November!
Too bad the “extra time” isn’t in prison!
The boehner plan of action on every issue;
Like I have said since the Beginning of this ACT OF TREASON, this is and always be a DOG AND PONY SHOW to take your eyes off what is really happening. The only people held accountable will be the WHISTLEBLOWERS responsible for making this ACT OF TREASON Public.
Just watch...holder will go on to be praised as one of the best Atty Gen’s ever and will eventually get the Medal of Freedom from a supplicant congress.
You are correct, I can see it now, Eric Holder’s operation of Giving Weapons to the ENEMY in THE WAR ON DRUGS, was the greatest thing we could ever do for the WAR ON DRUGS, Now that the ENEMY is Sufficiently Armed the American People need Us in the Government even More than ever. Thank you for your recognition that this plan to GIVE WEAPONS TO THE ENEMY IN THE WAR ON DRUGS will Serve to Perpetuate and Expand the Government at Every Level. He will be Praised by ALL IN GOVERNMENT when they realize that it was a JOBS PROGRAM FOR GOVERNMENT.
Surprise —anybody? seems to add credence to the rumor about the “fix” being in. Stepping away from it slowly to avoid complete rout because the GOP is distracted by “other” things like “hey it’s campaign season.” Cant be distracted by an
investigation into corruption within this Administration— folk might connect the dots and see where the GOP has been
complicit -when it was convenient.Let’s distract them with this anti-Catholic— contraception straw man. and step away — and hope nobody cares anymore.
No new deadline was set.
Yeah... SUUUURE they will... ;-)
Ok, now can we seriously start talking about a pitchforks and torches solution? Or is there some other futile hope we need to hold out for?
CNN reports that Rep. Issa granted Holder extra time after waiting 12 months. CNN doesn’t report much on F&F but their audience now knows that this is no witch hunt. That meme is a dog that won’t hunt now.
