‘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:

At last. I had to search for this thread. Not on top of the list at Breaking News. Trump though, he’s well up there.

What a cocky a-hole.....you asked a question on whether I should resign...you aren’t gonna let me respond to that?? Thank you....

Yes, RESIGN you ass. At the VERY least, he has PROVEN that he is incompetent....not reading memos, not being aware of VERY important things the AG SHOULD be aware of, not having documents when they’ve been subpoena’d (spelling?), etc etc. He is the epitome of incompetent. If you can’t FIRE his ass, make him resign and NOW!!!! Ugh.....

As I see it, Holder has two answers to everything:
I can’t comment because we’re still investigating that
and
I can’t comment because somebody else is investigating that.

I think the 5 min. question period allowed the Congressmen should be limited to questioning and not include the answers from a filibustering witness.

Jeez - this Rep. Clay is excruciating to listen to. All he is doing is condemning the committee.

Now invoking Iran Contra.

Mr. Clay...more Democrat talking points and blame placed elsewhere, and completely ignoring facts and reality.

THAT is irresponsible, Mr. Clay. Dumbass....once again with the Bush’s blame game.

I love how Issa flips around a two-minute presentation with just a sentence.

“Again, thank you for proving that no one has been held accountable.” LOL! I love it!
