During a hearing today on Capitol Hill, an exchange between Attorney General Eric Holder and Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert became heated over Operation Fast and Furious and contempt of Congress charges. Holder, who is still in contempt for refusing to provide documents related to the lethal operation, became offended when Gohmert implied he didn't think contempt charges were "a big deal." Holder told Gohmert he "didn't want to go there" and said he believed the contempt vote taken against him by Democrats and Republicans in June 2012 was unjust. Holder also slammed the "gun lobby." Gohmert, who served three terms as a District Judge in Texas, shot back by saying there has been no indication he thought contempt charges were a problem considering the Department still hasn't complied with major document requests and that he didn't need a lecture from someone currently in contempt, about contempt.
