House Oversight Committee files contempt suit against Holder

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has filed its contempt of Congress lawsuit against Attorney General Eric Holder.

The move comes after the House in June voted to hold Holder in contempt over the department's response to inquiries into Operation Fast and Furious.

The civil court case was expected, as congressional Republicans anticipated they would have to take their case to a judge to try and compel the Obama administration to turn over documents pertaining to the failed anti-gunrunning program. Shortly before the House voted for contempt, President Obama locked down key documents by claiming executive privilege.

That decision is expected to be challenged in the court case.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., ranking Democrat on the oversight committee, released a brief statement Monday chastising his GOP colleagues over the suit.

"It seems clear that House Republican leaders do not want to resolve the contempt issue and prefer to generate unnecessary conflict with the administration as the election nears," Cummings said. "Unfortunately, the American public suffers as House Republicans disregard the real work that needs to be done."

The process, though, is consistent with how the contempt of Congress path played out in 2008, when a Democratically controlled House voted to hold two Bush administration officials in contempt. After a lawsuit, the two sides worked out an agreement where the two officials testified.

The suit against Holder comes as the inspector general for the Department of Justice prepares to release a major report on Operation Fast and Furious.

It seems that Fast and furious was about getting caught giving guns to OUR drug dealers the ones the C.I.A. backs,the ones that we do business with.
