Temecula's Congressman Holds Attorney General in Contempt

The congressman is taking legal action against a high-ranking White House official for failing to deliver information on a botched gun-smuggling bust.


Darrell Issa, Temecula's congressman and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman, distributed a staff briefing paper and draft of the contempt of Congress resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder to Members of the Oversight Committee. 

The briefing paper explains what happened in Operation Fast and Furious, the hardships faced by the family of fallen Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in getting truthful answers about his death, how agents who blew the whistle on the reckless operation have faced retaliation and the carnage in Mexico that Fast and Furious has helped fuel.

“This briefing paper and draft contempt report explains the case, to both Members of the Committee and the American people, for holding Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress,” said Issa. “In describing the results of the Justice Department’s refusal to cooperate – including the hardships the family of a fallen Border Patrol agent have faced in seeking the truth, and retaliation against agents who blew the whistle on gunwalking – this briefing paper provides the facts, on which decisions will be made.” 

-- By Frederick R. Hill, spokesperson for Congressman Darrell Issa

GC, the problem is we can't just all get along. The human race is not nearly evolved enough for all groups to coexist without major conflict. Because of that I support the group to which I belong, American patriots! God bless America forever!

You have failed to complete a single sentence once again. If you still attend high school, you may do yourself a huge favor by actually walking into your assigned classroom and copping a squat. Don't worry about the rabbits, Lenny, you can tend them when you get home.

Mr. Issa, although still an elected offical, is by far one of the only ones who is not in politics for the money. yes, all elected officals should not be trusted, however Mr. Issa does tend to "tell it like it is". I think it is great that he is going after these stupid idiots who thought of "giving guns to summglers so they can go arrest them later on", and then naming the debactle after a trendy movie! What a bunch of losers! Yes the appointed Attrn. General and the idiot who appointed him, should both be taken out of office and fined, forced to pay the families that lost loved ones, and then move to mexico. Simple, done.
