If Eric Holder’s charged with contempt — what’s next?

Wednesday, June 20, 2012


The sit down meeting between Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Attorney General Eric Holder over the withholding of documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious ended in failure on Tuesday, June 19.

Holder didn’t release any new documents and Issa has decided to go ahead with a House Oversight Committee hearing to decide if Holder should be held in contempt.

Holder said he gave Issa an “extraordinary offer” in a briefing just after the two met Tuesday evening.

President Barack Obama’s Justice Department has been under investigation since 2010, when Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BAFTE) agent Brian Terry was killed ten miles north of the Mexican-American border by men carrying guns linked to Operation Fast and Furious.
