Boehner: All options on table in gun-running probe

House Speaker John Boehner says "all options are on the table" in the ongoing congressional investigation into the "Fast and Furious" operation and whether the House would move to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt should he refuse to fully comply.

Boehner says Congress wants "to hold everyone at the Department of Justice and the administration accountable for what happened or what didn't happen in `Fast and Furious,' adding that all options are on the table." Boehner made the comments Friday in an interview for ABC's "This Week" to air this Sunday.

The House GOP leadership sent a letter to Holder Friday that cited a "lack of full cooperation from the Department of Justice."

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi dismissed any suggestion Holder might be in contempt.
