and saying "All the documents specified, or we vote."
Just found this:
House oversight committee Chairman Darrell Issa told Holder on Monday afternoon that he had until Tuesday morning to cough up the documents. Otherwise, Issa said, he would not postpone the Wednesday morning contempt of Congress vote in his committee.
Late Tuesday morning, a spokesperson for Issa’s committee told The Daily Caller Holder still hasn’t given up the documents. That means Holder missed Issa’s deadline of Tuesday morning.
Issa has offered to meet with Holder at 5 p.m. Tuesday on Capitol Hill.
But, in his Monday afternoon letter to Holder, Issa said he needed the documents before he could meet with the attorney general.
“[O]nly the delivery of documents outlined and offered by the Department of Justice last Thursday to staff will be sufficient to justify a postponement of Wednesday’s scheduled vote,” Issa wrote to Holder on Monday afternoon. “As the department has not yet produced these document – and unless it does so tomorrow morning — I will not be able to offer you the committee’s assessment of them at tomorrow’s meeting.”
And Holder missed the deadline.
And it should be noted that the Usual Suspects are basically saying "He's the first black Attorney General, so he should be defended." Even for indefensible things.
But Martin, who is also a contributor for CNN, expressed bewilderment that the White House and black leaders have not done more to defend Holder, especially when compared to how two of George W. Bush’s controversial attorney generals were vigorously defended by their supporters.
Maybe because Bush's AGs hadn't done the crap Holder has? And Obama and 'black leaders' might not want to be too closely connected to Holder when he goes under the bus?
To borrow from Codrea, If Brian Terry had been black and if John Ashcroft were still AG, these same racist sons of bitches would be howling for his head.
