Attorney General Eric Holder agreed to meet with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Tuesday as part of his attempt to stave off a vote to hold him in contempt of Congress.
In a letter to the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sent on Monday, Holder proposed the meeting in order to discuss the role of the Justice Department in the botched gun-tracking operation, Fast and Furious.
He also suggested having Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member of Issas panel, and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, attend the 11 a.m. meeting.
It is expected that Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who first raised the controversial issue of gun-walking in Fast and Furious to Congress, will also attend. The location of the meeting hasn't been released.

So Issa will have less than a day to decide if Holder has sufficiently complied with the demand from Congress or is in Contempt of Congress?
How in TF will that be accomplished?
This is bull. Put Holder in jail now.
The stall continues...
Hopefully, Issa will be wearing a wire.
Yes. And, having his water taste tested.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Hopefully Issa and Grassley will bring plenty of toilet paper with them to the meeting because they will be dealing with three of the biggest assholes in Congress and Govt - Holder, Cummings and Reid.
Sorta of like a Roto Rotor crew going into a clogged up cesspool, yelling “We’re gonna need a bigger rotor machine!”
Well, there it is again...the GOP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory by COMPROMISING!!!!!!!!!!!
We have all been sold down the river by those COMPROMISING bastards in the Good Old (go along to get along) Party...GOP.
Nothing has changed other than the dates of the years.
BOTCHED —there it is again.
If you jump off a bridge, and then in fact you DO go splat, did you BOTCH the job?
No, it went PERFECTLY.
Issa is playing politics; those that support that are no better than "party" hardliners (party before country).
Members of both parties (past and present) need to go down hard and be accountable for the mess the United States is in.
Never happen however, DC is corrupted to the core.
Have him arrested. Citizens arrest.
I figure they’re going to show what dirt they have on each other and come up with an acceptable compromise.
The Terry family gets squat and we get squat.
Why agree to meet with him? He’s appeared a number of times. He knows what is required of him to comply.
Now we have more private talks.
This is absurd.
The only purpose of a private meeting is to withhold information from the public.
Perhaps Holder thinks he can continue to lie while not under oath to the panel?
What a crock.
Holder is a crook. Just like his boss.
Don't meet with him unless he is under oath in front of your committee.
Holder actually agreed to meet with Issa?
That’s awfully white of him.
But haven't we been told ad infinitum by the MSM that the American people are tired of gridlock and demand compromise and bipartisanship in congress?
