This afternoon the full U.S. House of Representatives voted 255 to 67 to hold U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress for failure to turn over specific documents. Eric Holder is now the first U.S. attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress in the history of the United States.

17 Democrats joined Republicans in voting for contempt. One member voted present, and 110 members did not vote.

The House votes on two separate items:

  • 1: Whether to hold Holder in contempt and then refer him to the DOJ [passed 255 to 67; 17 Democrats voted yes]
  • 2: Authorization to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to sue the DOJ in federal court [passed 258 to 95; 2 Republicans voted no]

The congressman representing the district of the family of murdered border agent Brian Terry, Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), indicated he would vote against contempt…

House holds Holder in contempt: 17 Democrats vote yes, other Dems walk out; Update: Media continues to push ‘retaliation’ narrative


Yawn: House Democrats Begin Walkout On Holder Contempt Vote…

But racism, as we have learned, is relative, meaning if you’re a left-leaning racist, it’s probably morally justified. As in this:

Justice Thomas dissents, Left hurls vile racial slurs ‘house nigga,’ ‘Uncle Tom’

Know your places!…

Update 4Meet the Seventeen… Erm. “Not-Traitors”… to Eric Holder.

…Of the seventeen, two are retiring (one unwillingly), one is currently in the process of losing the Indiana Senate race, three (Kind, Peterson, & Walz) are currently rated as being in ‘safe’ districts… and the other eleven are pretty much scared out of their minds that they’re going to be tossed out on their ears in November.  With good reason: every one of these people have been tainted by their willingness to enable House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s radical agenda, and the GOP will cheerfully replace them with actual conservatives – i.e., Republicans – in a heartbeat.

And the funny part?  If the Democrats want to even pretend to be trying to get the House back, they’re going to have to support every single one of these candidates who is running for re-election.
