Pelosi Statement on Contempt Vote on Attorney General Holder June 20, 2012
Washington, D.C. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress:
From the start of this investigation, the Obama Administration has worked in good faith to provide the committee with necessary information to complete its work. Attorney General Holder has testified on this issue in nine different hearings and handed over thousands of pages of documents. Yesterday, in a meeting with bipartisan leaders from both chambers, the Attorney General offered to provide additional documents regarding the Fast and Furious initiative an offer rejected by Chairman Darrell Issa.
At the end of the day, the Chairman and committee Republicans refused to take yes for an answer. Instead, they are continuing to spend time on an issue gun-walking that we all agree should not be used, that dates back to the Bush Administration, and that ended under the Obama Administration. Its time for Republicans to focus on our nations top priorities: creating jobs, growing our economy, and strengthening our middle class.
ahhhh, Nancy, your AG just retracted his statement that “Bush knew”........time to bring on the 2nd act, babe, the well’s run dry on this one...........
Nasty is full of bullobama.
All those people can do is lie.
I mean what other good faith information has Holder offered?
They’re screwed and they know it. All they can do is scream, pound the table and hope that something will come up to change the subject.
Obama’s assertion of Executive Privilege this late in the day can’t be spun in any positive way.
Not that anyone gives a rodent’s rectum what SanFranNan has to say anymore.
(following edited for truth)
From the start of this investigation, the Obama Administration has worked in good faith to provide the committee with necessary information to complete its work. Attorney General Holder has testified on this issue in nine different hearings and handed over thousands of pages of documents (although those documents were mostly related to OPERATION WIDE RECEIVER).”
” Yesterday, in a meeting with bipartisan leaders from both chambers, the Attorney General offered to provide additional documents regarding the Fast and Furious initiative (only if ISSA would disband the Committee, and ‘any and all’ charges related to the issue) an offer rejected by Chairman Darrell Issa. “
(I can prove all my ‘editing’ is true, as soon as transcipts of today’s hearing are available. ISSA stated it was true.)
And another high ranking democrat, er, communist commits perjury.
I don’t know why I opened this thread.
Same old same old.
It'll certainly sell in your district, but it won't play in Peoria.
Hundreds of Mexicans have been gunned down by these Holder/Obama guns. Only a true blue racist would dismiss their lives so casually.
Show her the inside of that Congressional jail cell and keep her there.
Of course she lied, she is Nancy Pelosi.
Yes Nancy, most of us have contempt for you.
Conservatives and conservatism need to find successful ways of making serious political inroads, throughout all U.S. cities and for the long-term. Failing to do so will help the left continue to increase their political clout, for the long-term.
Blah, lie, blah, lie, lie, blah, lie, lie, blah, lie, lie, blah, lie, lie, blah, lie.
does she even know what day it is. She is so senile.
Retire it, witch! You’re done.
She has sold her sole, she looks younger, satin can’t fix stupid though.
But I thought this is what the democRATS were gonna do Nancy.
Besides it's not the jack booted governments job to create jobs. But we will work on finding you a new one.
PLEASE.....If they had evidence that they could have put Rove in jail they would have done it. Just ask Scooter Libby.
Well Nancy, you are singing a different tune than you were three years ago when it came to Alberto Gonzales
