Now, members of the House Oversight Committee are tired of being patient and are ready to hold Holder accountable. A 48-page contempt citation has been drafted and House Speaker John Boehner is fully onboard with supporting the move. So what's next?
House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa and House Speaker John Boehner claim reports they are moving to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress soon — and reports claiming they are working together to do so — are inaccurate....
After the initial reports, a House Republican leadership aide told The Daily Caller that the LA Times and CBS reports were inaccurate. The GOP leadership aide said that “while there are very legitimate arguments to be made in favor of such an action [holding Holder in contempt], no decision has been made to move forward with one by the Speaker or by House Republican leaders.”
Can you say "Boehner is screwing us over"?
I knew you could.
Question is, exactly what is he getting- or being promised- out of this?
Further: Rep. Gowdy says
“Before Memorial Day, Eric Holder will either comply or he will suffer consequences, and when I say consequences, I mean contempt of Congress.”
Except that will still require Boehner to stop playing games for whatever he's hoping to get.
