Stop Fooling Around: When The American People Told You To Impeach Eric Holder, We Meant It!In what can only be described as a never-ending effort to try to deceive you into believing that they're holding Eric Holder accountable for his lawlessness, WHILE ACTUALLY DOING NOTHING, Rep. Darrell Issa and our so-called Republican leaders have UNVEILED A BRAND NEW SCHEME.
Now you're being told that they're about to move to hold Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress... but don't be fooled by these tough-sounding antics. What few people know is what actually happens when a public official is found to be in Contempt of Congress.
Here are the facts. If the House of Representatives finds Eric Holder in contempt, a citation is issued and referred to the U.S. District Attorney for the District of Columbia who is then instructed to act on the citation. The U.S. District Attorney for the District of Columbia, by the way, is Eric Holder's direct subordinate. In simple parlance, when they're all done, they're simply going to ASK the U.S. District Attorney to prosecute his boss.
And no, that's not our OPINION... THAT'S THE LAW. If you're finding that hard to believe, Google the term "Contempt of Congress" and verify it for yourself.
The mendacity and cowardice in Washington knows no bounds. In spite of the fact that Eric Holder and the Justice Department have STONEWALLED Congress for over a year and a half on the Fast and Furious investigation, our so-called leaders in Congress actually expect you to believe that sending a contempt citation to Holder's direct subordinate in the stonewalling Justice Department is somehow going to yield results.
Pretty slick, huh? And if you're thinking that a Contempt of Congress citation will likely sit on the U.S. District Attorney's desk, gather dust and grow whiskers, then congratulations, you've just figured out exactly what our elected officials ALREADY KNOW, and we're not about to let them get away with it!
