Holder Refuses To Comply With Congressional Subpoena
is all a nonsense cover-up; this "independent investigation" was
started just so they could start saying "We can't comment on that until
our investigation reports back to us on January 25th, 2012." - Ace

was Attorney General Eric Holder’s turn in the congressional hot seat
today and what he had to say about ‘Fast & Furious’ wasn’t well
received. In fact, his statements have some suggesting an impeachment
proceeding just might convince Holder (and the White House) that
political appointments are answerable to congress.
essence, Holder has told members of congress that he will not turn over
the subpoenaed documents because he appointed an Inspector General to
conduct an investigation, and - in unprecedented fashion - he refuses to
cooperate with congress.
To that, Ace had this input:
Why? I suppose his claim is that it might interfere with the investigation. But so what?
fact that the Executive is performing its own investigation
(supposedly) does not disburden Holder from his duty to respond to
legitimate Congressional inquiries.
FYI, this is all a nonsense cover-up; this "independent investigation"
was started just so they could start saying "We can't comment on that
until our investigation reports back to us on January 25th, 2012."
And while Issa threatened Holder with contempt, there, earlier Sensenbrenner brought up the possibility of a full impeachment hearing-- if that's what it takes to compel documents out of the DoJ.

stalemate of sorts? Certainly. But, that doesn’t mean that the
AG...or the President, for that matter, is out of the woods just yet.
This case, which has been mysteriously avoided by the lamestream media,
is moving from the back to the front burner and the heat is certainly
being turned up.
