    I predict Holder will hold out for the very last second, and give up the documents Issa wants.

    :cool:

    If you were in charge of the DOJ - don't you think you could forge whatever documents they wanted?

    It depends, what is the penalty for contempt? Are they just going to say "You're a bad man!", kinda like they do for censure?

    Answer: Contempt of Congress is a federal misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum $100,000 fine and a maximum one-year sentence in federal prison.

    Likely punishment: Nothing.

    Unless the documents implicate someone above Holder, then Holder may have to keep the emails and take one for the team.

    This is likely the case. It was reported the NSC told the FBI and CIA to FOAD when they started asking questions.

    I think Team Obama might be committing the same error Nixon did. Even though the Prez was not involved in the initial act he became involved in the cover up.

    This^, with the caveat that Nixon's purpose was to keep the JFK assassins and himself out of scandal and out of prison. Had it not been for ford, covering nixon's backside with a pardon, the trial would have exposed everything.

    holder hasn't been asked to step down or fired by his handlers, so at this point, barry soetoro is up to his neck in it. Proving his involvement will be difficult based on this nation's history of flagrant cronyism inside the DC loop.

    Would be awesome to see the whole tower come crashing down right before the election. Although I could see Romney pardoning the whole bunch

    I agree that Holder will come through with the documents at the very last second. If not, Boehner may push to have him held in comtempt. That's the problem. Boehner has no balls. He could have went after Holder much, much sooner but he lacks the stones to actually do anything.

    If romney runs again in 2016, he will be a worse puppet than soetoro ever thought of being. I'm more interested in romney's veep selection (as if we dont know already) as he is a member of the shadow.gubmint.

    Unless, rofl, romney picks ron paul as VP, barry gets 4 more years.

    It is a carefully orchestrated dance using the false right-left paradigm as the dance hall.

    holder has done enough to be held in contempt by any Sheriff in this country.
