Attorney General Eric Holder, who was held in civil and criminal contempt of Congress in late June, will receive a civil contempt lawsuit from Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa today.


The lawsuit will be filed in hopes a federal judge will force Holder to comply with a 22-part Congressional subpoena issued in October 2011. The judge will also determine if President Obama's assertion of executive privilege surrounding Fast and Furious documents was appropriate. Issa has said he expects a judge to rule executive privilege does not apply in this case.
