‘No Fifth Amendment Theater’ in tomorrow’s Holder hearing(gunwalker) [LIVE THREAD]
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 1 February, 2012 | David Codrea

Posted on 02/02/2012 6:06:17 AM PST by marktwain

“There will be no Fifth Amendment Theater tomorrow of the Phoenix US Attorneys being forced to say their ‘I-don't-wannas’ in front of the cameras,” Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars files in an exclusive report today from Washington, DC.

There will be only one panel of one -- Eric Holder. This is viewed by many who have been following the investigation as a serious mistake. Said one, "More simple browbeating of Eric Eric Holder without dramatic new evidence to impeach his story is going to look petty, mean and impotent.

Perhaps. After all, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa has pledged “We are still going to bring him forward” in response to Chief of the Criminal Division in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Arizona Patrick Cunningham’s decision to invoke his right not to self-incriminate after being subpoenaed to testify. And Issa has further demanded Justice stop blocking testimony from Cunningham underling Michael Morrissey. Advertisement

Compound this with a return shot from Committee Democrats attempting to absolve their administration allies, an outraged response from Sen. Chuck Grassley of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and yesterday’s stunning, knives-are-out ultimatum by Issa to charge stonewalling Attorney General Eric Holder with contempt of Congress, and it would appear an opportunity to show the American people an ongoing cover-up happening before their eyes may be lost.

And perhaps not. Again, per Vanderboegh:

Holder: I’d like to see those memos

Gowdy: We got the memos from you

Issa calls recess to show him the memos.

Gowdy hammering Holder. 5 min. break nobody to leave. Issa worried about all the Fast and Furious type of information being fed Holder from those behind him!

Ok, I take back my last statement....Mr. Gowdy seems to be doing a great job of laying into Holder. But I am getting really annoyed that Holder keeps talking AROUND the issue and denying he knew anything.

Holder is like Houdini. He has been put in a straight jacket of facts over and over, but he just slips out by lying his ass off. Democrat scum.

THIS MAY BE IMPORTANT -— Note this part in the testimony when you get a chance to review!

Holder: Those were related to Wide Receiver.

Congressman Gowdy: No

Holder: I’d like to see a memo that says both Gunwalker and Fast & Furious
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have been wondering if Holder & DOJ is not playing games with the words Gunwalker and Fast and Furious.

Issa called for a 5-min recess to get the docs/memos.

Hearing now resuming.

Who’s the faggot from VT? He, like ALL the Dem’s, now avoiding the issues, and again, using the Dem’s talking points, is talking about more Laws and Regulations, as opposed to addressing Holder’s responsibility for what goes on in his Depatment.

“Holder is like Houdini. He has been put in a straight jacket of facts over and over, but he just slips out by lying his ass off. Democrat scum.”

Yes, he is; yes he is.

Problem with the hearing procedure — 5 min Dem; 5 min Repub.

No time to pin Holder down and ask follow-up questions.

Just my observation: Why do I have the ability to identify a Dem. Congress person just by seeing them?

We need to get the CSI team of investigators on this STAT.

After all, they can figure it all out and solve the case in an hour, none of this 6 episode crap.

I despise this 5 min Dem; 5 min Repub. No time to follow through with a line of examination of important points in order to pin Holder down. Holder parses every single word he can to squirm out of the question.

Holder just slipped through the Gunwalker/Fast and Furious question AGAIN. I have to listen to this again.

Taking the 5th is exactly like saying “I did it, but you’ll never get to prove it”.

Off with his head!...and his boss’s! (figuratively, of course, in case they have spies!)

I’m glad I’m doing other things and only listening to this atrocity. Watching Holder for any length of time, really makes my skin crawl.....that evil, lying, weasel...squirming his way around the issues.

Ugh....this is really a travesty, if he gets away with this crap. I mean, I knew our system was messed up, but this hits the target (no pun intended).
