Contemptible Holder

In all of American history, no sitting Cabinet member has ever been held in contempt of Congress. That all changed on Thursday last, when the House held an unprecedented vote on the nation’s top law enforcement officer, Attorney General Eric Holder.


After months of investigating the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” gun-running scheme, which resulted in the death of two government agents, Holder still refuses to cooperate. Members, led by Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA), finally decided they’d had enough. When the White House used “executive privilege” to dodge a subpoena for documents, Republicans had no choice but to single out Holder for formal condemnation.


Is there any greater irony than America’s chief law enforcer being held in criminal contempt?


This is only the latest shameless disregard for the rule of law by this renegade administration.


Americans need to wake up and recognize that the task falls to us. The fight for accountability, for the Constitution, for the very future of America is in our hands. If we want to restore America to greatness, we cannot rely on anyone but the people of this great nation.
