House advances Holder contempt resolution with help from 15 Dems
the Hill ^ | 6/28/2012 | Pete Kasperowicz

Posted on 06/28/2012 11:26:50 AM PDT by Brown Deer

The House voted Thursday to advance a resolution finding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, and a related resolution that could lead to civil court action against Holder.

Members voted 254-173 in favor of a rule governing floor debate for the two resolutions, setting up more debate and votes later in the day. The rule was approved by every Republican, and 15 Democrats, a sign that the resolutions might win the support of about a dozen or more Democrats later in the day.

For sh**’s sake, they haven’t VOTED on it yet?!

Looks like they are preparing to start to begin to instigate the process that will allow them to consider thinking about how they will discuss it, once they do.

Let me know how it goes next year.

If nothing comes of F&F and holder goes the way of jon corzine, Mr. Speaker can dust off that resume.

EXACTLY. This doesn’t mean a damn thing. They only voted to debate to vote.

For cripes sake these people are impossible and scared of their shadows. Nothing but spinning wheels is going on.

Wait. This just in. Encouraging news. Issa has written yet another letter to the white hut saying he is going to now LAY upon the ground, hold his breath and flail his arms all at the same time if the white hut does not come clean and answer his questions.

Oh my! What a reckless abandonment of caution and restraint! For his next act he is going to get really really angry.

We should demand an immediate Congressional Oversight/ criminal investigation into Kagan for not Recusing herself in Obamacare. This decision should be vacated owing to Kagan's conflict of interest in sitting on the case while holding a conflict of interest. If found guilty by the House Investigation she should be impeached and removed from the bench, and sent to jail for violating the law. The Obamacare could then be appealed to SCOTUS again since the original decision must be vacated owing to Kagan's involvment. Maybe Darell Issa could take up this investigation along with the Fast and Furious investigation.

"As solicitor general of the United States, Justice Elena Kagan served as the head of an office responsible for formulating the Obama administration’s legal defense of its domestic agenda priority — Obamacare. "

"According to Section 455(b)(3) of Title 28 of the U.S. Code, justices must disqualify themselves in cases where they have “served in governmental employment and in such capacity participated as counsel, adviser, or material witness concerning the proceeding or expressed an opinion concerning the merits of the particular case or controversy.” In United States v. Gipson, the Tenth Circuit held that judges must recuse themselves if they have “previously taken a part, albeit small, in the investigation, preparation, or prosecution of a case.” Other courts have suggested that, merely by virtue of a lawyer’s position as the head of an office during the preparation of a case, he or she is disqualified to sit as a judge on that case."

"Previously undisclosed e-mails that the Justice Department has released pursuant to court order demonstrate Kagan’s direct involvement in the administration’s defense of the president’s health law from the very beginning. "

They need to IMPEACH Obama and Holder for Fast/Furious...as they are directly aiding the Mexican Drug Cartels.

I want everyone on record whether they support America or Obama/Mexican Drug Cartels.

You gotta be kidding! A resolution to draft a resolution to vote on a resolution that states resolutely that the resolution is resolute.

Their thinking may be that if they can put it off until Zero loses, BALLS might not be necessary after all. They certainly wouldn’t know where to track any down.

I think that’s a great idea except...just a sec...nope.

I thought I felt some monkeys flying out of my butt but it’s just gas.

It ain’t gonna happen. There is a reason I’m not a republican any more. I found out where they get all those fake balls hanging from pickup tail bumpers, and the original owners have been found wanting.

That sounds like an excellent idea.

I think we should all drop what we are doing right now and write a letter to BOTH of our spinators and our congressman and demand that they get this done post haste.

Excellent plan. I’ll get right on that business of writing a letter to express my anger and disgust about all these really mean and rotten things that Holder, oblabla and Kagan are doing.

Yeah, that’ll do it. That’ll do it for sure. Write a letter and demand action. That’ll do it for sure. It has always worked so well in the past. It’s gotta work again. Just such an obvious solution.

Darell Issa to the rescue. Go Darell Issa. Go Darell Issa.

They voted to vote on a vote to vote a vote.

Which they can now do on a tax which is not a tax and which they can deny is a tax until some future court rules it's a tax.

When one lone republican voted for 0bamacare the msm refferred to it as a bipartisan victory.

It now appears that at least 14 or 15 democrats will join in voting to find Holder in contempt . Don’t expect to see a headline reading ,, A bipartisan congress votes to find Holder in contempt of congress .
