Deal or No Deal … NO DEAL: Rep. Issa and AG Eric Holder Meet, No Docs Provided by Justice Dept … Issa Says ‘disappointed’ & Contempt of Congress Vote Against Holder will Move Forward


Deal or No Deal … NO DEAL!!!

Its a game of Contempt of Congress chicken between Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa and Attorney General Eric Holder. Issa and Holder met yesterday in what proved to be a waste of time and more of the same with the obstruction and the AG not turning over documents that have been subpoena with regards to the “Fast & Furious” scandal that left a US border patrol agent dead. Holder failed to produce the requested documents and according to Rep. Issa, the contempt vote against Holder will go forward in the House.

The meeting between Attorney General Eric Holder and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa has ended after 20 minutes of discussion. Holder came with an offer of a briefing on Fast and Furious documents, but did not physically turn over any documents. This is unsatisfactory to Issa who has said repeatedly that in order for Holder to avoid a contempt vote Wednesday at 10 AM, he must hand over 1300 Fast and Furious documents to the Committee.

“The documents they may choose to give in the future, we need before tomorrow,” Issa said to reporters. ““Ultimately the documents needed for postponement seem to be in their possession.”

Holder’s failure to produce documents at the 5 PM meeting come after he failed to present them by this morning as requested, after he failed to respond to an October 2011 subpoena as requested and after more than a year of requests for transparency surrounding his role in Operation Fast and Furious.

Senator Charles Grassley, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, also issed a statement:

“The Attorney General wants to trade a briefing and the promise of delivering some small, unspecified set of documents tomorrow for a free pass today.  He wants to turn over only what he wants to turn over and not give us any information about what he’s not turning over.  That’s unacceptable.  I’m not going to buy a pig in a poke.  Chairman Issa is right to move forward to seek answers about a disastrous government operation.”

From The American Spectator … The Documents, No Peace.

The “Fast and Furious” scandal, coupled with “Leek-gate” and the Unconstitutional acts by Barack Obama is going to cost him dearly in the 2012 election.

      Holder is now under the protective wing of the illegal pres who has called “exec” privilege. I hope all you who voted for this obvious lying thug are pleased with yourself. SOrry but the shoe fits and you wear it well. The simple fact that he will not release docs means he’s hiding something and they’re guilty as hell. One day the piper’s dues up for payment. The boomerang returns to it’s origin.

      Issa told the committee an earlier offer from Holder to release a limited number of documents to the committee falls short of their request.

      The Attorney General has refused to cooperate, offering to provide subpoenaed documents only if the committee agrees in advance to close the investigation,” said Issa. “No investigator would ever agree to that.”

      Rep. Darrell Issa pressed ahead with a committee vote Wednesday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, despite an eleventh-hour move by President Obama to assert executive privilege over the Fast and Furious documents at the heart of the dispute.

      North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue words were not pulled out of thin air. Obviously … the possibility of a suspended election had been a topic of discussion behind the scenes in some Democrat circles. Was Perdue chosen as the means to determine the reaction of Americans? In other words … the testing of the waters?

      The Raleigh News & Observer first reported that Perdue, a Democrat, suggested a change in protocol during a speech at a local Rotary Club.

      “I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” she said. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. … You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”

      “She wasn’t joking at all. The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability,” spokesman Rob Lockwood said. “If it was a joke, what was the set-up? What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter?”

      “We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad-idea,” he said in a statement.

      The Constitution dictates elections for the House be held every two years.
