Issa: Contempt Charges on Their Way for Eric Holder

For a year now, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa has issued multiple threats to hold officials of the Obama Justice Department in contempt for their obstruction of justice surrounding the Fast and Furious scandal. Despite his senior status within the Obama administration, Attorney General Eric Holder has not been immune from those threats as he continues to withhold 74,000 Fast and Furious documents from Congressional investigators. His repeated stonewalling and coverup of Fast and Furious, which I document extensively in my new book Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup, has not gone unnoticed. Now, it looks as though contempt charges are on their way. The Washington Times' Kerry Picket caught up with Issa and he informed her contempt charges will be filed in the coming weeks.

Rep. Issa told me on Tuesday night to expect movement on the contempt charge towards A.G. Holder very soon.

“We’re going through a process,” said Congressman Issa. “That process is going to take weeks but not months more.”

In late January, Congressman Issa’s committee threatened contempt proceedings against Attorney General Eric Holder, if Mr. Holder failed to comply with his committee’s congressional subpoenas for the Fast and Furious documents by February 9.

Charges against Holder will come after his deliberate failure to comply with a subpoena issued by the committee. The question now becomes, will perjury charges follow charges of contempt? After all, Holder has changed his testimony about what he knew and when he knew about Fast and Furious multiple times, under oath in front of Congress.
