You Can Bet The MSM Will NOT be Calling It “Bipartisan”

From “Fast and Furious” to “Slow and Laborious”…

Democrats in the Congress will be voting with republicans to hold AG Eric Holder in “contempt”.

At least two Democrats have joined the ranks of Republicans planning to vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt over his refusal to turn over Operation Fast and Furious documents.

The Democrats who have taken that stance so far are both conservative-leaning lawmakers facing perilous political circumstances in their home districts. Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who is leading the charge on contempt, predicted to Fox News that up to 31 Democrats could be considering voting against Holder.

The latest Democrat to announce that stance is Rep. John Barrow, R-Ga.

“While Republicans and Democrats argue over the scope of the people’s right to know what happened, the Attorney General has decided to withhold relevant documents,” he said in a statement. “The only way to get to the bottom of what happened is for the Department of Justice to turn over the remaining documents, so that we can work together to ensure this tragedy never happens again.”

Utah Rep. Jim Matheson also circulated a statement announcing he would support the GOP-led vote.

“Sadly, it seems that it will take holding the attorney general in contempt to communicate that evasiveness is unacceptable,” Matheson said.


A source familiar with those talks told Fox News that the Republicans met with administration officials twice Tuesday — at the Justice Department and at the White House. The Justice Department showed GOP staff 14 documents on the failed anti-gunrunning operation, totaling about 30 pages.

Republicans apparently thought the offer was not good enough.

But the move prompted criticism from the White House.


The House Rules Committee will tee up a Thursday floor vote on contempt by taking up two related contempt resolutions on Wednesday afternoon.
