Issa says he is moving forward with contempt charges against Holder

In response to numerous critics who have claimed that Congressman Darrell Issa and the Republican leadership in the House have dragged their feet in holding accountable those who have lied to and stonewalled Congress in the Fast and Furious scandal, Rep. Issa told the Washington Times today that he is moving forward with contempt charges against Attorney General Eric Holder.
Issa had threatened Holder with a contempt of Congress citation unless he turned over to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform thousands of documents Holder has withheld that have been subpoenaed by Issa in his investigation into the scandal.
Several deadlines passed without any action on the part of Issa. And there were reports that House Speaker John Boenher had interfered in the Issa investigation, telling the Congressman to back off of the Administration in the matter.
