Appoint a Special Prosecutor.

Put the "Bulldog" on the case.

Free includes debt-free!

It's another dog and pony show

Repubs are weaklings. They know we are in trouble but THEY just stand there and wring their hands. They need to grow a pair or get voted out.
VOTE THEM ALL OUT. Pelosi is up for re-election. Help her opposer. She has to go. But with rigged diebold machines we'll have to wait until she is 6 feet under?

Keepin' it real.

I had to laugh to myself when

I had to laugh to myself when I read that the case was being sent to the DOJ. Holder IS the DOJ. ROFLMAO!

Now what?

Sounds like James Cole must be fired for not doing his job.

Congress should have the Sargent of arms arrest both of them.
Or they are going to be a laughing stock not good in election year.

Never expected Holder or anyone else to be punished

The worst thing that ever happens is that they are forced to resign. That typically just means a new title in some other department or an even more lucrative position in a corporation that is in bed with the Government. When the members of the Mafia are the ones who choose the fate of one of their Mafia Boss's...the "punishment" will always be no punishment.

What longstanding practice?

What longstanding practice? Eric Holder is the first sitting Attorney General in U.S. history to be found in contempt of Congress. Somebody in DOJ needs to do their d*mn duty.

Bug, not feature

Did anyone actually expect Holder to instruct his underling to investigate him? The system needs tweaking.
