Department of Injustice Attorney General Erick Holder got testy with and threatened Texas congressman Louie Gohmert during a House hearing on Tuesday when Gohmert not so subtly reminded Holder that he was in fact a criminal.
Contempt of Congress is the act of obstructing the work of the United States Congress or one of its committees. Historically, the bribery of a senator or representative was considered contempt of Congress. In modern times, contempt of Congress has generally applied to the refusal to comply with a subpoena issued by a Congressional committee or subcommittee—usually seeking to compel either testimony or the production of documents.
Eric Holder (Democrat), Attorney General June 20, 2012
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform June 28, 2012
House of Representatives Found in criminal and civil contempt
That’s right, Department of Injustice Attorney General Erick Holder was found to be in CRIMINAL contempt of congress.
The almost textbook outrageously-outraged followup to Holder’s confrontation with Louie Gohmert during a House hearing on Tuesday. Ugh.
I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and lasting reforms, even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted ugly and divisive adversity. And if you don’t believe that, you look at the way — forget about me, forget about me — you look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee. It had nothing to do with me, forget about that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?
“It had nothing to do with me”? Well, actually, it one hundred percent had absolutely everything to do with you — and not because of the reason (hint: rhymes with “bassist”) you’re rather unsubtly implying, either. It might, however, have had something to do with the fact that your department within the Obama administration has ‘unprecedentedly‘ coordinated a scandalously failure of a deadly gunwalking operation that you’re still trying to downplay and dismiss while continuing to obfuscate the investigation thereof by refusing to hand over all of the relevant documentation. “What attorney general has ever been treated this way”? Wrong question, “buddy.”
How in the name of God, can any American consider the American Justice system to be anything other than dysfunctional and utterly corrupt given the fact that a convicted criminal is in charge of the Department of Injustice? I’ll tell you how. Every last Democrat in America believes that as long as one of their own in in a position of official power, that it is perfectly ok for them to commit any and every crime on the books so long as it advances their political and ideological agenda, that’s how.
America’s Democrats are Marxist totalitarian tyrants who hold only one moral or ethical value. The End Justifies the Means.
