Skip to comments.‘No Fifth Amendment Theater’ in tomorrow’s Holder hearing(gunwalker) [LIVE THREAD]

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 Cunninghams 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 yesterdays 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:

Cummings is a moron.
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.
GOP report: Justice officials were on top of Fast and Furious
22-page memo by Issa released today (downloadable doc).
RE: Main Justice: Extensive Involvement in Operation Fast and Furious
Did they find the memo????????? What happened?
lol! Good one! Atty Gen WITHOLDER
Now Holder is whining again. Important giveaway when he starts whining.
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
I can’t comment because somebody else is investigating that.
I know, huh! Trump—the prostitute of politics? Yes, he’s all over the place! Unfortunately!
But this Clay guy redefines stupid.
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.
Up! Clay blames Bush.
Clay is reading his ‘Rat talking points ... I’m impressed he can read.
: o /
Clay had no question, just a DEM Talking point statement that he was obviously given to read!
Don't you mean EYEran-Contra? :)
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!
Looking at the names of those questioning Holder, I feel like I’m watching Reservoir Dogs...Mr. Black, Mr. Brown, Mr. White, Mr. Pink, etc.
