Fast and Furious makes Watergate look like a political picnic at the petting zoo.

If CNNABCCBSMSNBCFOX started covering the important news, maybe a lot more people would actually watch television. I HATE double standards. I thought we are supposed to all be " = " in the eyes of the law? Holder is a criminal, and somebody in Congress should have the guts to go after this traitor to America, trying to sell us out by demonizing people who want to protect and defend themselves and their families. Holder is AGAINST self defense, because it is an individualistic, independent action that does not rely upon the government. Holder WANTS you to become DEPENDENT on the government for protection, welfare, housing, and food. The more dependent you become, the bigger the government gets.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

It's all a cirus..

Does anyone think any punishment will come out of this?

Presidential pardon anyone?

Don't waste your time on bull folks..

Too bad you didn't Nancy. Could have done a great service to the Country.

ABC and CBS have already called this a 'witch hunt'.

That 17 members voted

against the contemp charge just affirms how corrupted the democratic party is - The republicans aren't far behind. We have along way to go to clean this house.

Wow, so many trying to blame "the previous administration"

What a joke.

Perhaps all a smoke screen for this (amongst other things):

Congress sides with Monsanto over GMO battle

Biotech giants Monsanto were awarded a victory by lawmakers in Washington this week after a congressional panel voted to let farmers plant genetically modified crops made by the agriculture company despite pending legal proceedings.

What awful news :(

It's alright. First we deal with this election

then we start going after all the other corporations raping us of our freedoms including freedom from eating engineered food. I just can't get over how for so long we've heard that no corporation can patent products of nature, yet if they modify its genetics it becomes Intellectual Property giving Monsanto Patent Rights over nature!! Their aim is to take over all—GLOBAL—Food production. Soon enough we'll be breaking IP Laws for eating foods we're not allowed to!

*deep breath in.....and out*

It's times like these that it's important to remain calm and stay positively focused on solutions to our problems. We need to work together to take these bastardos out one by one, NON-VIOLENTLY of course.

I guess you're right. One thing at a time...

This weekend I masochistically watched The World According To Monsanto and also What In The World Are They Spraying, re chemtrails, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jf0khstYDLA), plus I watched that General Motors clip that someone posted here over the weekend - with GM taking the bailout $$ and investing it in China, and with the Communist Chinese government coming here - the owner of a company that is now the primary employer in a Michigan factory town (Saginaw) (http://www.dailypaul.com/240824/no-more-gm-for-me-if-this-is...); I also read the lawsuit filed by the delegates, just reminded of all those different incidents - not to mention the media blackout throughout the entire primary season. I really felt like we're being attacked on just so many fronts! But I like what you said. "It's times like these that it's important to remain calm and stay positively focused on solutions to our problems. We need to work together to take these bastardos out one by one, NON-VIOLENTLY of course." Oh, of course!

Now it'll go before the full House

If passed, it goes straight to the US attorney in DC and presented to a grand jury. Yes?

What~~a slap on the hand?

Uh, huh, that's about all this amounts to, or will amount to....he'll get it just like all the other political crooks get it, just like Jamie Dimon did (which was nothing--in fact, he got billions for doing his dirty derivative deeds).

"dirty derivative deeds"

epic alliteration!

A little charge of treason

A little charge of treason needs to be presented now. Also murder or at least accomplice to murder. I like treason charges the best though. Bring your rope to a very tall tree!

Contempt?

They are all in contempt! Even Congress...they are in contempt of the constitution and should all be arrested.

This whole act is simply a political move to position Romney. Just remember, although its good to see the marble rolling, there are other things behind the scenes that deserve the gallows pole. If that ball gets rolling I will stand up and say the pledge of alliance again.

Unfortunately, the max sentence if found gulty is $1,000 fine

or up to 1 year in prison - I think we all know he'd never see a day in jail. How did this charge escape the draconian mandatory minimums that seem to be attached to every other crime??? It's a joke.

I was paying attention to Kucinich

He delayed his vote a few times, most likely to measure the eventual outcome before voting. I think he's just talking the talk being a democrat, but supports the gist of the investigation that Holder is guilty of contempt. I wish Dennis would stop being partyline and let his conscience vote and speak freely like Dr. Paul does.

What's it

to him. He's retiring after the election or didn't he already lose his seat.

Keepin' it real.

I believe lost his seat...

C-Span THREE; crazy right?

Yeah, I watched the entire thing on C-Span3. The entire debate was literally the only time I agreed with "Republicans" as a majority. Every democrat, even KUCINICH said this was OUTRAGEOUS. Despite the blatant fact that the document being requested clearly incriminates Holder and Obama; Democrats are saying that this move in response to refusing a Subpoena (if only we could "reject" subpoenas) was "political election year politics"

WTF is wrong with everyone?

I wanted to watch it

but m network provider (DirecTV) doesn't give me that channel. What service provider do you have, and did you have to request C-Span-3?

We need to see to it that he is charged with the murders that the guns he provided resulted in.
We need to see he goes into a jail cell and every cent he has is taken away.
Ether that or it is all smoke and mirrors.

Still goes to House & Senate....So the Dems will protect their boys.

The Reality (and sorry to piss on your parade)

http://www.humanevents.com/2012/06/20/eric-holder-charged-wi...

Even if Holder is found in contempt he won't lose his job. He might get a censure and a fine. I seriously doubt that this will happen given the corruption of the Senate and the Courts. More's the pity and this makes it more imperative for Dr. Paul to win the nomination. For all intents and purposes, there is no America anymore.
