Gohmert to Holder Over Fast and Furious: I Don't Need a Lecture From You About Contempt!
Townhall.com ^ | April 8, 2014 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 04/08/2014 1:13:47 PM PDT by Kaslin

During a hearing today on Capitol Hill, an exchange between Attorney General Eric Holder and Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert became heated over Operation Fast and Furious and contempt of Congress charges. Holder, who is still in contempt for refusing to provide documents related to the lethal operation, became offended when Gohmert implied he didn't think contempt charges were "a big deal." Holder told Gohmert he "didn't want to go there" and said he believed the contempt vote taken against him by Democrats and Republicans in June 2012 was unjust. Holder also slammed the "gun lobby." Gohmert, who served three terms as a District Judge in Texas, shot back by saying there has been no indication he thought contempt charges were a problem considering the Department still hasn't complied with major document requests and that he didn't need a lecture from someone currently in contempt, about contempt.

The Republican had better watch his mail for letters from the IRS.

This sounds like a threat from Holder. Anyone else consider the AG threatened a Congressman?

Of course Holder knows all about "contempt." He has nothing but contempt for "the great unwashed," (i.e. the American public), the law, and the Constitution of the United States.

And he's a "contemptible" human being. He "knows" where the bodies are buried. He engineered the Marc Rich & Puerto Rican terrorist presidential pardons during the Clinton administration.

He has no problem with trading the lives of hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens (the only Mexican's he seems to like are the illegal aliens in the US) in order to advance gun control in the US. He's as low as they get, which makes him the PERFECT AG for the most lawless regime in US history, the Obama regime.

Pigment and ideology. The left can never be touched, because no matter what they do, their motives are soooo good. They just want to control us swine for our own good.

The King Obama Administration is so pack with communists criminals that America is finished. If we manage to get the Senate, keep the House and get the Presidency in 2016 it will be time to enforce and jail these rotten criminals.

Louie ain’t one to try to scare!

Holder on the otherhand better be lining up some of that massive nobama graft for himself cause he’s going to need lifetime support in some non-extradicting country. Bluff only will take you so far.

“He’s as low as they get, which makes him the PERFECT AG for the most lawless regime in US history, the Obama regime.”

Amen! Holder is the perfect Gestapo stooge for the communist criminal President Buckwheat. Holder can order his state-sponsored terrorists in the ATF and FBI to attack and murder innocent women and children like he did in Waco.

It’s way past time for states to prepare to meet Holder’s goons with overwhelming military force.

“”This sounds like a threat from Holder. Anyone else consider the AG threatened a Congressman?””

I thought the same thing the first time I ran across this today and wondered if there was any recourse for Gohmert. If anyone should know, he should and I hope he takes full advantage of any action that he can. That worm needs to be put in his place and the American people shouldn’t ever have to put up with him again. He has only gotten worse since his Clinton years....

Go there Buddy? Hey Holder, you are still in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents where you gave the Mexican drug cartels thousands of guns including grenades. So how many people died Holder because of your actions?
