House GOP leaders said Friday they are pursuing a plan to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and the Justice Department in contempt for stonewalling them over information regarding the administrations failed Fast and Furious gun-tracking program.
GOP Rep. Darrell Issa confirmed to Fox News that House Speaker John Boehner gave him and others on his House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform the authority to drafted a contempt of Congress resolution.
We have a few other options (but) to a great extent weve been stonewalled by the Justice Department, said Issa, R-Calif.
The news of the document and the extended meeting in Boehners office was reported first by The Los Angeles Times.
We have issued a subpoena, Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a member of the oversight committee, said earlier on Fox News. We have bent over backwards to be patient and take time. (Holder) is leading us down a path where we have no other choice.
The resolution, if approved by the GOP-led House, could force Holder to release thousands of pages of documents related to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives program.

Contempt? How about an extradiction order to stand trial in Mexico for thousands of deaths? Holder would then be squealing for the comfy confines that a Gitmo cell would provide.
If they think something like a little ole subpoena is gonna get them to do anything, I have a bridge to sell ya.
They should be dragging their asses out in handcuffs and stop with the mamby pamby crap.
I am not from Missouri Mr. Issa but you gotta show me.
Stop playing around and get serious.
Now is the time.
NOT! Fox news just played them back-peddling. Their office now says that they are not considering taking such a move “because they believe Obama and Holder are about to cooperate.” And these bed-wetters think they can take on the Obama Crime Machine? LOL!
Various combinations of stern words will no doubt be used.
How bout waterboarding his sorry rear end to the the truth from withholder.
Seeing is ALMOST believing. Convince me, Mr. Issa. Prove it. Charge him and try him.
Contempt? Not in this lifetime. obama will grant him Executive Privilege and Holder will call Issa and say F.U.
Well, I have moved past the contempt for Holder to utter disgust with Issa and Grassely....THERE’S NOT A GONAD BETWEEN THEM!
Let’s hope it includes prison time until he agrees to fully comply.
Boner will, as usual, chicken out and run away from a fight.
