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.

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...
