Gunrunner: Darrell Issa to sue Eric Holder on Monday over Fast and Furious documents
It is now being reported here that tomorrow Darrell Issa will sue Eric Holder in civil court in a last ditch attempt to finally get his hands on the documents Eric Holder has gone to great lengths to hide.
The committee expects to file the civil contempt suit against the attorney general Monday,” a Republican source said. The suit will be filed in the federal district court for the District of Columbia
As regular readers of America’s Watchtower already know, Darrell Issa and the Oversight Committee found Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a subpoena request for documents which I suspect tie the embattled attorney general directly to the Fast and Furious scandal, and immediately following this vote Eric Holder ran to Barack Obama and begged him to seal these documents using executive privilege. Not wanting this to come to a head before the election, Barack Obama naturally obliged putting politics ahead of justice.
Darrell Issa is now taking the next step and I for one couldn’t be happier that he isn’t going to back down after coming so far. Just when we thought the investigation might have been effectively killed by the man who promised to have the most open, honest, and transparent administration in history it looks like it might be heating up again.
