Boehner Protects Eric Holder From Contempt Of Congress Citation…Again

Eric Holder 13 SC Boehner protects Eric Holder from Contempt of Congress citation…Again

Three months ago, conservatives were jubilant over reports that Congressman Darrell Issa would offer a Contempt of Congress complaint against Eric Holder. After all, the Attorney General had openly refused to honor House Oversight Committee subpoenas for an estimated 80,000 documents vital to the Committee’s investigation of the role played by members of the Obama Regime in Operation Fast and Furious.

Holder spent nearly a year lying to Congressional committees and making clear he had no intention of honoring legal subpoenas. His Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich had written a February 4th, 2011 letter to Congress claiming that the criminal walking of more than 2000 firearms across the Mexican border had never happened. It was that letter which would have the distinction of being the first ever Department of Justice communication to Congress which had to be withdrawn by its sender, due to certain “inaccuracies.”

Yet deadlines set by Issa and Senator Charles Grassley for the production of subpoenaed documents have systematically been ignored by this corrupt Attorney General with no substantial response by congressional Republicans.

Last week, CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who has reported ferociously on Regime Fast and Furious felonies and misdemeanors since its inception, wrote of another contempt citation being prepared by Darrell Issa. Attkisson discovered a 48 page draft had been provided House Speaker John Boehner, undoubtedly complete with Holder’s every lie, diversion and refusal to comply with House subpoenas.

Were Republican leaders to issue the go-ahead to Darrell Issa and actively persuade any recalcitrant (that is, weak-kneed) GOP members of the House to cooperate, the passage of a contempt citation could provide the American people a long-awaited view of Eric Holder being frog-marched to the well of the House, under arrest by the Sergeant at Arms. And reports of the Obama Regime’s assault on the 2ndAmendment rights of the American people would finally shatter the full-fledged, 18 month Fast and Furious media blockade.

But here is the latest word from a Republican spokesman:  “While there are very legitimate arguments to be made in favor of such an action, no decision has been made to move forward with one by the Speaker or by House Republican leaders.”

Three months ago, it was reported that John Boehner would sell out to Eric Holder and the Democrat Party by making an under the table deal with the Attorney General for the Fast and Furious generated scalps of a few DOJ underlings. Of course, Barack Obama and Eric Holder would in return be exonerated. Unfortunately, if a nationwide account of this contemplated betrayal worked to stop Speaker Boehner in his tracks, it certainly didn’t seem to provide incentive for a more courageous tack.

In 1821, the Supreme Court ruled that Congress must have the power to issue citations of contempt in order to “…not [be] exposed to every indignity and interruption that rudeness, caprice, or even conspiracy may mediate against it.”

Yet although proof of his decades of criminal wrongdoing abounds, Republican leaders are frightened to death at the thought of holding Eric Holder to account. And he is in return piling successive rounds of indignity upon the House of Representatives via the deadly Obama Regime conspiracy of Operation Fast and Furious.

    Boehner has been compromised by something in his closet, or he is part of the problem in the opposition. Either way, he has to go and I hope the People in his district are intelligent enough to see what is needed. They must vote him out just as millions of Freedom Loving americans will be discarding a lot of human trash come November. We are out of time and short on options to reverse the destruction we face.

    I thought you might want to know that a new website called onemillionshort has been created that removes the top one million results from an internet search as a joke, so that your search is reminiscent of Google searches around 1999. When I searched for Barack Obama on their site, your site was the top result, meaning that there are 999,999 other sites that people go to for Barack Obama information before they find yours.

    There is every reason to believe that all of the comments here are made by the total number of people ever to visit your site.

    Good luck exposing Obama with numbers like that. You're wasting the hours left in your life creating this site.
