Holder contempt citation -- just remember that people died because of 'Fast and Furious'
Fox News ^ | June 28, 2012 | John Lott

Posted on 06/29/2012 3:15:00 AM PDT by richardb72

People died. It is something to remember during today’s historic House vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt. Never before has a sitting attorney general been held in contempt.

With all the hoopla over past scandals from Watergate to Filegate to Pardongate, the cover up was always worse than the crime. Yet, in "Fast and Furious," the guns that the US government supplied to Mexican drug gangs have been used to kill one American border agent and over 300 Mexican citizens and commit numerous other crimes.

To date, because of administration stonewalling, we don't have answers to the most basic questions. Why would the Obama administration give drug gangs guns without trying to trace them? Why not inform Mexican officials about the program so that the Mexicans could try tracing the guns on the Mexican side of the border? Why start pushing untraceable guns to Mexico at the same time that the Obama administration was making their wildly false claim that 90 percent of crime guns in Mexico were from the US? . . . .

Of course, the “White House” is spinning it as just a “partisan political witch hunt”. It isn’t; and Holder’s and Obama’s feet need to be held to the fire - people died in this Fast & Furious thing. - WHAT ARE HOLDER & OBAMA HIDING?

We all know what they are hiding. We also know that the Media is helping them hide it.

Obama is in this thing up to his “under the radar ears”

I am disturbed in this AM because if I’m not mistaken, !7 Demorats crossed the line and voted with the Repubs. Where is the Cry of the Repubs saying this is a by-partisan decision? They are a bunch of Mamby Pamby’s.
Darrel Issa has not had his leadership helped in anyway by Bonehead or the rest of the wusses up there.
Throw these bums out and keep Patriots like Issa, West, Ross and the likes.
Sheesh, all I remember is Dems walking out of the vote. Not the Repubs screaming they have a By-Partisan vote. Crap they got 3 to cross the line on Obama Care and all the American people heard was we got the bypartisan vote!!!
I am so pissed off!

There IS NO republican PARTY... there is a social club in DC where the participants call themselves republicans as they count our money and laugh at us and our concerns.

Only two Republicans voted no—Reps. Scott Rigell of Virginia and Steven LaTourette of Ohio.

Both these gop need to be removed

Usually it would be a trip to Disneyland but Holder was already there as the vote was tallied.

“300 Mexicans” in Mexico don’t matter a hill of beans to American “liberals.” Let them migrate to the US - with or without visa - tho, and they become “hispanics” whose rights take precedence over those of native-born Republicans.
