Skip to comments.House advances Holder contempt resolution with help from 15 Dems
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.
A report on the FNC web site says there are actually two votes and it should all be over by 5:15 EDT.
I guess it’s now a bipartisan resolution.
the vote is on LIVE now
Cummings is up...
If nothing comes of F&F and holder goes the way of jon corzine, Mr. Speaker can dust off that resume.
For sh**s sake, they havent VOTED on it yet?!
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.
50 minutes of yap
and then the vote..
Meehan PA up now

Finally we’re getting somewhere!
A guy named O’Rourk once call them a “Parliament of Whores”.
Boy did he nail it.
Mr. Furious to the rescue!
I thought that idiot was part of the national association of liberal black people caucus and that they were going to walk out.
Hell, they can’t even tell the truth about not telling the truth.
They voted to vote on a vote to vote a vote.
"As solicitor general of the United States, Justice Elena Kagan served as the head of an office responsible for formulating the Obama administrations 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 lawyers 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 Kagans direct involvement in the administrations defense of the presidents 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.
It would be a funny joke wouldn’t it if it were not so true and sad.
What a dirty crying shame we have come to this.
Congress is a freakin joke. Kick all the bums out.
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.
Don't be surprised if it is pushed into tomorrow.
Finally I see one person(YOU) who is pointing out that the law was broken on the supreme court from the get go. You won’t find many supporters though. Not even here.
When are the naggers gonna walk out?
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 .
How many more threads are you going to spam with the same post?
2:30:54 P.M. H. Res. 711 DEBATE - The House proceeded with fifty minutes of debate on H. Res. 711.
My Congessman. (Tim Walberg)
He ain’t much to look at or a great orator but he’s a good man.
demo William Lacy Clay made the true reason and connection between Fast n Furious and assault weapons ban in US.
Nearly 18 months on this investigation and Hoyer is whining about rushing things.
Congress is a freakin joke.
Absolutely right! The committee voted to send the contempt of Holder to the floor for a vote. And they waste time voting on resolution after resolution to hold the vote! What a bunch of crap!
Less than 20 minutes to go till the vote...
Steny brace yourself..
Apparently they’ll be reading a statement from the Terry family shortly.
If we could just get this whole F&F thing before the SCOTUS, I tell ya what.
Exactly right! He exposed the true reason behind F&F - gun control.
Well there may still be some good news today.
I called Issas office in DC to tell them we are pulling for him around the country...
I also called Rep Diane Blacks of TN office to thank her for her cooments on the steps about the SCOTUS decision on RomneyCare oh I mean (of course) ObamaCare...
SanFranNan is at the podium in the House. Is she plastered? She just said the Congress has oversight over all branches of government. Really - do they challenge SCOTUS?
