House Oversight Committee Holds Holder in Contempt
4:25 PM, Jun 20, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER
By a 23-17 vote, the House Oversight Committee, headed by Rep. Darrell Issa, has voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for not releasing documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal. "Oversight Committee vote was precisely along party lines: all Republicans vote for contempt citation, all Demorats voted against," CBS's Mark Knoller reports.
The contempt vote will now be considered by the entire House of Representatives, probably next week.
