Any Freeper experts out there who can answer this question?
What actually are the resulting scenarios if Holder is held in contempt?
Does he have to step down?
Can he actually be arrested and jailed? I'm not aware that Congress has such an enforcement power.
So as a practical matter, will a contempt finding make any difference at all, other than in the election jockeying by both sides?
They will threaten to take away his birthday, no desert for a week, and they will think ill of him for 3-4 hours; then they will be called racists and will drop everything, appologize and promote him to Executive Secret Senior Attorney General.
Once he’s voted in contempt you won’t see him testifying on behalf of the DOJ anymore.
What happens is that Revs Al and Jesse will call out the mob and demand that anyone in Congress who voted to hold Holder in contempt be impeached and flayed alive for being racist.
All we know for sure is that the MSM will report it as being a very big problem for the GOP.
My vote is to have him waterboarded until he gives up the documents.
I think this actually opens him to criminal prosecution, but I am not sure. (To all: I think Mace should get a serious answer, and we all could use a refresher on the implications.)
Not a darn thing. O’bie will grant him some sort of immunity from everything including malaria and shingles. Sick and sad. Can they hold uncle o’bie in contempt? Probably not. Everything’s “sealed”.
I agree. Maceman should get a serious answer but I don’t have one to give so I gave him a good old FR series answer to this hugh question.
I can't believe. The first answer is the correct one.
Holy Education Batman!
So far, nobody knows nuttin’.
All we can say is, nobody died during the Watergate burglary, so F+F is worse than Watergate. Where is our Howard Dean?
Water boarding anyone?...
(In Brief)"I say that you can grant "Executive Privilege" because of ..blah blah blah..." So you should grant me Executive Privilege"...
Does this make ANY sense???? Is the fox guarding the henhouse or what???
He will be put on Triple-Double Secret Probation for a month..................
Fine of up to 1,000 dollars and up to one year in prison and that is the max for contempt. He will resign but bet he will retain his pension
They'll laugh and drive on over the cliff, with us tied up in the truck bed.
Lying to congress is a fairly serious offense.
Ask Oliver North.
I believe that the Just-Us Dept would investigate.
And you know what that means.
Folks, Holder is a lying crook.
His boss is a lying crook.
Reid is a senile ugly lying crook.
Pelosi is a bitchy ignorant ugly lying crook.
Does anyone even imagine that anything will come of this?
Yes... and that the GOP has jeopardized its standing with blacks.
