Newsflash.

The House of Representatives can’t arrest anyone.

The House also can’t make anyone else arrest anyone.

Here's a question though... I believe that if someone in government KNOWINGLY breaks the law, they are no longer covered by their immunity of office. If it can be shown that Obama and Holder were directly involved in the smuggling of weapons to the drug cartels (how many laws were broken there?) that resulted indirectly in the death of someone (in this case Agent Terry), then wouldn't there be at the very least, a case for charges of "wrongful death" against Holder and Obama? It would be GREAT to be able to file criminal charges, but given the fact that Holder would have to charge himself and Obama with crimes, I'm sure that would happen. So the Terry family and the American public will probably have to be satisfied with a civil suit, especially since Obama will probably pardon both Holder and himself. Maybe Mexico could declare them both to be international war criminals...

It really galls me knowing that there will probably never be a conviction in the Terry case, because the people behind the murder are in change of the criminal prosecution.

The House has no enforcement mechanism when it comes to criminal charges. They can only make a referral to those who do, but can’t make anything happen.

You already know that.

Something interesting, the House also voted for civil contempt not only criminal contempt.

They said it was because they know the criminal will go nowhere...the federal prosecutor for DC works for Holder.

I’m assuming they think this will help any effort to pursue Holder civilly, but I hadn’t heard of civil contempt of the House before...

I’ve heard that it’s in regards to Obama declaring executive privilege, which will require a judge see EVERY contested document involved.

Or I may be getting this mixed up with something else. But I do wonder about the civil charges of “wrongful death” against Holder and Obama, since if they can be shown to have broken the law, they should lose their immunity of office.

Executive privilege claims will be handled in front of a federal judge and are seperate from the civil contempt of the House against Holder.

As for any wrongful death civil lawsuit, that would need to be pursued by the family of the slain agents.

Who would prove that they broke the law, is my question?

Oh, it’s obvvious laws were broken in the gun running, but pinning the broken laws on Obama and Holder would be difficult because there’s no special counsel for this and they aren’t going to go after themselves.

And since who knows how many guns are still out there, people could be getting shot and killed every day thanks to Holder0bastard et al.

The number of Mexicans killed is, AFAIK, an estimate. Could be more Americans, as well. Who’s keeping track? Checking numbers on weapons, making lists? The same traitors that put the guns out there!

Don’t you just love “Anonymous sources?”

It appears we may have our own "deep throat" inside the DOJ.
