    GOP to Holder: See You in Court

    Republican lawmakers leading a congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious have filed a lawsuit in federal court urging a judge to compel the Justice Department to turn over documents related to the botched gun-running probe.

    In the lawsuit, lawyers representing House Republicans said Attorney General Eric Holder's "intransigency" and "contumacious refusal" to comply with a House subpoena have prevented congressional investigators from determining whether the Justice Department intentionally tried to obstruct their investigation.

    After President Obama asserted executive privilege over the documents nearly two months ago, the full House, mostly along party lines, held Holder in criminal and civil contempt of Congress. But with a Holder ally as the gatekeeper to criminal proceedings in Washington, the criminal contempt citation was virtually dead on arrival. So now Republicans are hoping a judge will enforce the civil contempt citation.

    GOP have been trying to oust Holder ever since he stepped to the podium to accept the job. He was a Clinton guy so they've hated him for awhile. I think FAF is more about politics. George W. started the program. If it blew up in someones face over time, he should be held responsible. I also doubt the ATF just told Holder everything they were doing. And if the guys working at ATF were Bush guys, why would they tell Holder anyways? Maybe they wanted it to blow up in his face so he'd get the blame.
