Democrat Breaks Ranks – Supports Investigation Against Eric Holder

May 10, 2012

As promised by a longtime political operative months ago – Democratic Party support for the Republican led efforts to investigate Eric Holder and the Obama Department of Justice would eventually happen.  It appears that promise is now (finally) coming to pass…

Indiana Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that he supports the House oversight committee’s efforts to enforce the congressional subpoena of Attorney General Eric Holder over Operation Fast and Furious.

“One of the duties of Congress is to provide oversight of the Executive Branch,” Donnelly told TheDC. “There has been a serious allegation of federal law enforcement misconduct and we need to get to the bottom of this issue without playing partisan politics.”

Holder has demonstrably failed to comply with the congressional subpoena House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa served him on Oct. 12, 2011. Holder has failed to comply with all 22 categories of the subpoena that demands he provide documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. With 13 of the categories, Holder has provided no documents whatsoever. When it comes to the other nine subpoena categories, Holder is still far from compliant, as TheDC reported late last week.

    Sadly, only ONE legislator came forward to do something constructive for America…Makes me wonder if he is the only one to come forward, does that mean the rest of Congress has been completely bought off by the O Administration? And why they are silently staring into the abyss?

    I read there’s another resolution in the House, not the contempt one, but one that is critical of Holder, and over a hundred Dems have signed it. I’ll try to find the link.

    Here you go. It was also on UM but this goes into more detail. It’s not a resolution but a vote to not fund DOJ because of all the lyin’:

    How long before BO comes up with a signing statement that voids the series of resolutions the House just passed? I say, within a month- there will be new language freezing the resolutions and they never see the Senate for a vote…

    The only thing the House does control are the purse strings…. that may survive..

    My next prediction is that the bot campaign will find some company somewhere that Bain Capital owned that despoiled the environment, “proving” that Romney hates the environment. The Dems are working their way thru all the anti republican prejudices (first war on women, then anti-gay), so why not. Part of the environment as means of control thing, followed by more executive orders to “protect” the environment. Who needs the House? He’ll find a way to fund it through national security executive orders…
