'You don't want to go there': Holder tangles with GOP rep at hearing
Published April 08, 2014 FoxNews.comFacebook134 Twitter358 Gplus3 Attorney General Eric Holder got into a heated argument with a Republican congressman Tuesday over the still-pending contempt case against him.

Holder was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee when Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, began pressing him for documents in a separate investigation. Gohmert brought up an apparent sore spot, referencing the 2012 House vote finding Holder in contempt of Congress.

"I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight," Gohmert said.

A visibly annoyed Holder said: "You don't want to go there, buddy." Leaning back in his chair, he added, "You don't want to go there, okay?"

"I don't want to go there?" Gohmert responded.

Holder went on to say that the congressman "should not assume that that is not a big deal to me."

"I think that it was inappropriate and it was unjust, but never think that was not a big deal to me. Don't ever think that," Holder said, pointing his finger.

Gohmert defended his line of inquiry, saying he's "just looking for evidence ... and there have been no indications that it was big deal because your department has still not been forthcoming in producing the documents that were the subject of contempt."

The exchange ended when Gohmert told Holder he didn't need "lectures" from the attorney general. Holder said the same back to Gohmert.

The attorney general, one of the longest-serving and most controversial members of the Obama Cabinet, often has tense encounters with Republicans during congressional hearings.

The GOP-led House voted in 2012 to hold him in contempt for failing to provide key information on Operation Fast and Furious.

I'd also like to see them cite Lois Lerner from the IRS for contempt.
Throw her azz in the pokey for a while until she feels like talking

Don't forget about Clapper.

Clapper lied, freedom died.



Apparently, everyone but baseball players get a free pass from Congress.

These SOB are out to fundamentally transform America and they will do so until they are stopped. The only way to stop them is to DE FUND them. Congress needs to reduce their DoJ funding as well as the IRS until they comply.

I'm failing to see what holding somebody in contempt actually does, besides letting our congress baboons stand around and beat their chests.
