Eric Holder’s actions as the Attorney General of the United States will be remembered by history as one of corruption. It is a classic example of Power Corrupting Absolutely when he was illegally granted Absolute Power. His transformation of the Department of Justice into one of injustice continues with the approval of the administration. The rule of law has been replaced by racism, 2nd amendment abuses, intimidation of sheriffs and overruling federal immigration statutes.
Mr. Holder’s position on the Fast & Furious investigation may be summed up as “I heard no evil, I saw no evil and I will not testify on this evil“. But the reality is that Mr. Holder is an integral part of the evil that has overthrown the Constitution and our government.
On Tuesday Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House committee on Oversight and Government Reform, took a major step toward holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his failure to provide subpoenaed documents and other information about Operation Fast and Furious.
In a Jan. 31 letter, Issa had threatened Holder with such a move if he failed to provide all the subpoenaed documents relating to the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal by Feb. 9. That deadline has come and gone, and Holder’s Department of Justice still hasn’t provided most of those documents. Issa’s subpoena dates back to Oct. 12, 2011.
On Tuesday in a seven-page letter, Issa revealed that Deputy Attorney General James Cole begged Congress to extend the Feb. 9 deadline. Issa wrote that the request was “ironic” and “ignores the reality that the Department has unreasonably delayed producing these documents to the Committee.”
“On its face, the requested extension demonstrates a lack of good faith,” Issa wrote to Holder. “With one exception, the Department has only produced documents responsive to the subpoena on the eve of congressional hearings in which senior Department officials testified. The Department appears to be more concerned with protecting its image through spin control than actually cooperating with Congress.”
“We cannot wait any longer for the Department’s cooperation,” Issa continued. “As such, please specify a date by which you expect the Department to produce all documents responsive to the subpoena. In addition, please specify a Department representative who will interface with the Committee for production purposes.”
