House committee mulls Holder contempt resolution

House committee mulls Holder contempt resolution

Washington (CNN) – The top Republican on the House Oversight Committee is moving to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to cooperate in the panel's investigation of the controversial "Operation Fast and Furious" weapons sting.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-California, sent a 17-page memo and a draft contempt resolution to members of his committee Thursday, outlining what he argued was Justice Department's "refusal" to comply with the panel's probe to get information about the sting set up by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that allowed weapons to be purchased illegally in order to track them to senior drug cartel members.
