Something went right!

The House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. The vote was 255 ayes, 67 nays, and 1 present vote.

Seventeen Democrats joined with 238 Republicans to vote for the contempt charges against Holder, while over 100 Democrats did not vote, most of them ceremoniously walking out of the House chamber in protest.

Fast and Furious. Slow and Arduous would be more appropriate. Obama and Holder are hiding something. The lies and obfuscation are telling, in and of themselves.

Murdered border agent Brian Terry’s parents accuse Obama officials of ‘hiding something’

The parents of murdered border agent Brian Terry told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday that they think Attorney General Eric Holder and other Justice Department officials are “hiding something” in their response to the botched anti-gunrunning operation Fast and Furious.

The operation let illicit guns “walk” in the hope of tracking them to bigger traffickers, but many of the guns just disappeared into Mexico. Two of those guns were later found at the crime scene where Terry was killed in December 2010 just north of the border.

A House panel voted Wednesday along party lines to recommend holding Holder in contempt of Congress for not handing over a trove of documents related to Fast and Furious, and GOP leaders are considering a full House vote. President Obama has asserted executive privilege in keeping many of the documents out of public view.

They need to do more than hold him in contempt of Congress. They need to impeach his ass.

This lying turd needs to go.

House committee schedules contempt vote against Holder

By Sharyl Attkisson

(CBS News) CBS News has learned the House Oversight Committee will vote next week on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. It’s the fourth time in 30 years that Congress has launched a contempt action against an executive branch member.

This time, the dispute stems from Holder failing to turn over documents subpoenaed on October 12, 2011 in the Fast and Furious “gunwalking” investigation.

The Justice Department has maintained it has cooperated fully with the congressional investigation, turning over tens of thousands of documents and having Holder testify to Congress on the topic at least eight times.

However, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., says the Justice Department has refused to turn over tens of thousands of pages of documents. Those include materials created after Feb. 4, 2011, when the Justice Department wrote a letter to Congress saying no gunwalking had occurred. The Justice Department later retracted the denial.

Senator Feinstein is a typical Democrat. See corruption, look the other way, unless it can damage the Republican Party. Doesn’t fit the narrative otherwise.

Holder needs to be impeached. Obama needs to be impeached. Looks like Feinstein should be as well.

Fire them all.

Veteran agent: Feinstein did not act on ATF abuse, corruption evidence

Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., was informed of management corruption and abuse issues at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) before allegations of “gunwalking” surfaced, but opted to do nothing about it. That allegation comes from veteran Special Agent Vince Cefalu, who recently informed Gun Rights Examiner of his efforts to persuade the powerful Democrat to investigate documented instances of gross mismanagement and perjury.

Cefalu is the veteran street agent who was served termination papers last June for his efforts to bring management wrongdoing to light, a move perceived by other whistleblowers and observers as not just retaliation, but direct defiance of Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and concerns he articulated as Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

“When they showed they were going to tee it up on me and others out of sheer abuse and covering their national screw-ups, I wrote to Feinstein,” Cefalu told this correspondent.

Yeah, this asshole lied. He lies. Obama lies. Democrats lie. It’s that simple. It’s time to impeach. Fire them all!

These lying assholes have gotten people killed, and they don’t give a shit. The MSM doesn’t give a shit either.

Holder Lied, People Died

“New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010,” Sharyll Atkisson reports.

That directly contradicts his statement to Congress.

Proof now exists that as early as July, 2010, Holder had been apprised:

The investigation, initiated in September 2009 in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Phoenix Police Department, involves a Phoenix-based firearms trafficking ring…and straw purchasers are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then smuggled to Mexican drug trafficking cartels.

Did Eric Holder Lie To Congress?

Did Eric Holder Lie To Congress?Operation Fast and Furious continues to simmer. Included in the weekend data dump, though, was something sure to heat it up.

New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his statement to Congress. On May 3, 2011, Holder told a Judiciary Committee hearing, “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” emphasis added.

Well, I mean that’s an easy mistake to make. Ten months. A few weeks. What’s the big diff?
