Last week, the House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. That would normally trigger an investigation and prosecution by the Justice Department and a U.S. attorney, but Justice has already announced it will not be moving forward on the action against Holder.
Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., is a member of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee that first voted on the contempt citation. Gosar says he is deeply disappointed by the politics involved in the Justice Department’s decision and he says civil contempt charges should be coming soon through the Republican leadership.
“We will continue the onslaught and I’m sure there will be more subpoenas coming forward,” Gosar told WND.
The contempt citation came after what Republicans say is more than a year of deception and stonewalling from Holder and his colleagues at Justice in connection with the gunwalking scandal known as “Fast and Furious.”
Gosar also discusses the myriad of immigration and border security headlines in recent days – from the Supreme Court decision on Arizona’s immigration laws to the Department of Homeland Security refusing to cooperate on cases of illegals detained in Arizona to the DHS telling border agents to “run and hide” if confronted by violence.
“We’re tired of this administration declaring war on Arizona. If you pick a fight with Arizona, we’re going to finish it.”
