Left shrieks over reports that 35 Dems may back Holder contempt vote


The White House claims House Republicans are engaging in “political theater” as they prepare to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to supply subpoenaed documents related to the deadly Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.

Not so fast, White House.

As many as 35 House Democrats are reportedly prepared to vote for the contempt resolution. It appears the GOP’s political “witch hunt” isn’t so political after all, doesn’t it?

on msnbc, @LukeRussert predicted 30-35 democrats will vote to hold AG Holder in contempt. #expectationsgame #FastandFurious

Rep Matheson-D "Sadly, it seems that it will take holding the Attorney General in contempt to communicate that evasiveness is unacceptable."

Another D to vote for #contempt: Rep. John Barrow (D-GA). Has a tough re-elect in a new, heavily R district.

Rep. John Barrow on contempt: The only way to get to the bottom of what happened is for the DoJ to turn over the remaining documents…

What say you, President Obama?

Hi @BarackObama how can you claim that the contempt vote against #Holder over #FastandFurious is political if #Democrats vote for it? #p2

Naturally, reports of Democrat support for the contempt vote aren’t going over well with the Democrat faithful.

I'm here to let spineless democrats know, if you side with republicans on Holder's contempt vote, you too will be held in contempt…BY ME.

The one positive of a Contempt vote on Holder would be we get to see which Democrats are owned by the NRA who is pulling Issa strings

If any Democrats vote on Thursday to charge AG Eric Holder with contempt charges, they need to be voted out of office this is a which hunt

ANY democrats voting FOR the contempt charge of AG Holder, I encourage all of you to remember those in your state. Vote them OUT in 2014.

Punk ass Congressional Democrats voting in contempt of Holder for fear of the NRA, why the hell do we even VOTE!

— QChocolate (@QrsChocolate) June 27, 2012

@dccc The 35 Democrats who vote to hold Holder in contempt, better be blocked from your help, and should made to think if they're Ds or not.

Disgusted with cowardly Democrats like Utah's Rep. Matheson, who will vote to hold AG Holder in contempt.

Meanwhile, the family of fallen border patrol agent Brian Terry is still waiting for answers.
