The CBC and other Democratic Representatives walking out of Congress in protest of the Contempt of Congress vote orchestrated by Rep. Darrell Issa.
Late Thursday afternoon, in an act of sheer partisanship, contempt for the rule of law, and contempt for the Obama administration, the Republican-led House of Representatives voted 255-67 — almost entirely along party lines — to hold Attorney General Eric Holder, the nation’s first African-American Attorney General, in contempt of Congress.
The following “Democratic Representatives” crossed party lines, because they fear retaliation from the National Rifle Association, to vote against Attorney General Eric Holder.
On “NO”vember 6th, Twenty Twelve, let all of America reward these 17 turncoats with a “NO” vote at the polls. VOTE OUT the traitors.
White House spokespersonJay Carney said the criminal prosecution of the contempt charges will not move forward.
“The prosecution will not take place in this circumstance,” Carney said during a press gaggle aboard Air Force One en route to Colorado. He said the president’s assertion of executive privilege over the related documents makes the matter moot.
In other words….waste of time Issa.
In a letter sent to the House Speaker John Boehner, Deputy Attorney General James Cole confirmed that Justice would not move forward with contempt prosecution.
“Across administrations of both political parties, the longstanding position of the Department of Justice has been and remains that we will not prosecute an Executive Branch official under the contempt of Congress statute for withholding subpoenaed documents pursuant to a presidential assertion of executive privilege,” the letter read.
The letter sighted the same justification used when the House brought contempt charges on two Bush administration officials.
Stan Brand, partner at Brand Law Group, told CBS News that attorneys general for the past three decades have interpreted the president’s use of executive privilege as both a way to protect information and a way to protect against possible criminal charges.
The Justice Department is responsible for opening a criminal contempt case. Since Holder heads that department, it was widely suspected that the department would not move forward with prosecution.
Carney offered his support of Holder, saying he will continue “his excellent work” as attorney general. Carney added that the entire proceeding is “pure politics.” This is the first time the House of Representatives has found a cabinet member in contempt.
Game. Set. Match.
