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

What kind of penalty can a congressman impose? It's virtually pointless unless there is a substantial penalty. The administration will not let their atty general take a hit in an election cycle.

Lets see, we have a congressman Darrel Issa, trying to find out Who in big government made the stupid decision to let thousand of guns get smuggled into Mexico, and there are post slamming Issa for doing his job and calling him names.

I love the French . Retire at 60 . Have 6 weeks vacation year . Have 34 hour work weeks , Have national Health care for all residents. And we Americans have the gall to call the U.S. the greatest country on the Planet .. We Americans are delusional .
TVOR May 06, 2012 at 10:55 PM
What, are you French GC? They have perfected the art of being asses. Oh and by they way, their country is slowly being taken over by socialists and foreign interests. This is a position we will be in if we allow the liberals to have their way.
Galactic Cannibal May 07, 2012 at 02:16 AM
I stated facts dude . but clearly you represent the millions of fellow Americans who are totally delusional. Can you imagine an American having health care from cradle to grave , We don't. Can you imagine an American working 34 hours a week , We don't . Can you imagine any American getting 6 weeks paid vacation. NEVER, Can you imagine Americans retiring at 60. NEVER We are in debt $16 trillion. We are constantly attacking countries who did not attack the U.S. and we lose every time . Vietnam lost , Iraq lost, Afghanistan lost, Korea lost, We are still paying for Vietnam We have massive slums in our big cities . Check 'em out.. Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, New York, Detroit...etc.etc. Millions and millions on FOOD Stamps. for the past 20 years. We are totally racist , and we are so arrogant , that we believe we are the greatest. France has survived for almost 2000 years . we are less than 300 years old . We have another 1,700 years to go before we reach 2,000. If we ever do. Countries are like Ghetto's with their silly flags. The Planet Earth is what matters not our silly countries. Countries mean nothing . But the Planet earth means everything its all LIFE. Break out of your patriotic Cave dude, And forget the Chinese or the Indisans they have been around 5,000 years.

Since the Tea Bagger can not do anything else, lets look at something that nothing to do with the sad representation of this area. Flush the Issa Turd 2012..
Patrick May 08, 2012 at 12:06 AM
Popeye- I would like to formally request that you form (1) complete sentence in any comment you post.
Popeye May 08, 2012 at 01:59 AM
There you go again with the Tea bags in the mouth and your turds. Speaking without anybody asking..ha ha ha
TVOR May 08, 2012 at 03:34 AM
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!
Patrick May 08, 2012 at 04:10 AM
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.
