Despite President Obamas use of executive privilege this morning, the hearing before a vote on holding Attorney General Holder in contempt proceeded. And proceeded.
Minutes ago, the vote took place.

I’ve held the guy in contempt for years. No news here.
With lots of butter!
Wow. That was a closer vote than I thought it would be.
those who voted NO
should be marched to a local farmyard
and made to roll in pig and bovine doody
it’s a lot cheaper than tar and feathers these days.
straight party line.
Isn’t Holder already on pig and bovine duty? Just askin’.
Now it gets caught up in the courts till the election? Demand his resignation...even though he won't (above the law, suckahs).
For those who only watch NBC, they will never know about it. They don’t even know there were hearings. The don’t even know there is something called Fast & Furious.
If Holder is NOT formally charged with a crime and consequently found guilty while Obama is still in office.
Then he can not be pardon by Obama?
Hey, he heads the Department of Just Us, so what would you expect[orate]?
Actually, I think you can do a preemptive "any and all crimes" pre-pardon before conviction. Whether Zero wins or loses in Nov, what disincentive would he have to do that? Impeachment? Please.
You can tell whether an (R) or a (D) is in office because when it's an (R), the politically persecuted innocents who deserve one go begging, whereas if it's a (D), every shyster and pedophile with two bucks to run together (or incriminating evidence) gets one. Bad side is, instead of a pardon, you might commit suicide by shooting yourself repeatedly.
Yea, the uninformed idiots who have heard of “Fast and Furious” think it is a movie about cars with Vin Diesel!!!
This goes to the top, Obumer should resign and do jail time.....People died, LOTS of people.
Rub together. Two bucks to RUB together.
A pardon doesn’t do jack for a civil suit, does it?
It was the lead story. I don't have cable and my preferred local news is the NBC affiliate.
Does anyone have any database software that could used to track all of Holder’s lies because I’m pretty sure it’s going to take a computer to do so.
So what does this mean? What can theoretically happen by holding Holder in contempt? I’m just curious. I definitely wanted Congress to do it, but thought this would get him fired. Does this just put a reprimand in his file or what? I.E. does this action have any teeth?
“Im just curious. I definitely wanted Congress to do it, but thought this would get him fired. Does this just put a reprimand in his file or what? I.E. does this action have any teeth?”
Please correct me if I’m wrong.
I would imagine that since Holder is head of the Justice dept that in itself makes for no way for there not to have a conflict of interest with the court system and therefore would be up to congress to deal with it through impeachment.???
