GOP prepares to file lawsuit against Holder
By NBC’s Frank Thorp
….House Republicans will file suit in an effort to compel [AG Eric] Holder to release documents associated with the failed “Fast and Furious” gun-walking operation.
“We’ll be filing a civil case during the break,” Issa told NBC, “We will expect a day in court before a federal judge, which we have a 100 percent chance that the judge will hold that these documents should be delivered.”
During negotiations between House Republicans and Holder in June, the White House invoked executive privilege on the documents Issa had requested for his investigation. Issa says that a federal judge should find that executive privilege does not apply to the documents he is requesting.
…The House voted on June 28th, 255-67, to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for not turning over documents related to the Fast and Furious operation. During that vote, the vast majority of Democrats walked off the floor of the House in protest of a measure they saw as a political witch hunt.
Soon after the House found Holder in contempt of Congress, the Justice Department penned a letter to House Republicans saying it would not be pursuing the case, stating that “the attorney general’s response to the subpoena issued by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform does not constitute a crime.”
