Is the Eric Hold contempt of congress vote a political attack by republicans?  What is in the documents that President Obama does not want to release?  Is the executive privilege warranted in this case?

It seems like the reason the president doesn't want to hand over the documents is because there was some kind of cover up of the Fast and Furious program.  My guess is probably more of an embarrassment than real culpability.  It seems like it's about election year politics for both parties.  The GOP wants to embarrass the president and the president doesn't want the story to dominate the headlines.

I thought at the begining that holder should just hand over the documents,now i wonder is there still an ongoing sting by the atf that would be compremised if everything came out right now if this is right when everything is over we should know the truth

Eric Kantor is such a "tool". He would rather flush the country down the dumper than compromise on the senate's bill. All this mess cound have been avoided if the "teabaggers" and their rich donors would let the representatives of the 100% do their jobs without interference. Most republicans in the "house" are like spoiled brats.

What are the actual possible penalties for contempt of Congress?  What will people such as Lois Lerner endure if found in contempt?  Are they financial, jail time, loss of pension, etc?  Also what are the penalties for lying to Congress.  By the way did you see in news yesterday James Clapper said he didn't understand the question?  How convenient I say.

One can only wonder what the penalties will be for CIA personnel deleting records from members of Congress computers so I won't bother you with that one.  

AMERICA'S FUTURE IN DEEP JEOPARDY WHEN SO VERY MANY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS CAN'T BE TRUSTED.  Hope Congress has the courage to do something about it.  Comment on this in  email to me if you care to.

Thank you for the opportunity to ask.

Enough Evidence to IMPEACH OBAMA? Of course --these last six years have been enough to IMPEACH OBAMA--Herte are just a few reasons to do so---HE LIED CONSITANTLY TO THE AMERICAN VOTERS!--===keep your doctor, u wil save $2,500 on ur med insurance, u can keep ur ins. if u like it, Obama has used his EXECUTIVE POWERS to block anything that could show that he was involved in and illegal activity, He said--"I will have THE MOST TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION EVER"!--That was one big lie--just to get ELECTED in 2008 the first time!, The four AMERICAN MURDERS in Bengahzi "were the result of a VIDEO" ==that was a big LIE--he did it so he could get relelected in 2012! He and his people are constantly lying to the U.S. Citizen--right in our faces-=--THEY DON'T EVEN CARE! Theu are not afraid of us---and so far they have been correct! But I'm betting on the American Spirit to see what he is doing to America and start a MOVEMENT TO IMPEACH HIM---and get his followers OUT OF OFFICE! THEY HAVE DESTROYED AMERICA IN JUST SIX YEARS-----THEY HAVE TO GO---------NOW! !----Where does Lois Lerner and her replacement get the confidence to DISRESPECT OUR CONGRESS---AND THE U.S. CITIZEN!!!---YES THEY GET IT FROM THEIR LEADER----"OBAMA"

YES---YES---and REALLY "YES"---

Yes--America has allowed SOME people judge who is guilty long before they have a trial! ---Long before they have a trial! In past history that would be called----VIGILANTI JUSTICE! So now most of the people leading the MISINFORMATION about Zimmerman were driven by blacks! I read the MIAMI HERALD---the morning after the self defense by Zimmerman. Travons Dad had given a statement to the police---HE SAID HIS SON HAD BEEN GETTING INTO TOUBLE THE PAST YEAR OR SO----and Travons emails prove this out, They put a price $25,000 on Zimmermans head---for bringing him to the BLACK PANTHERS --"DEAD or ALIVE" NO ONE OBJECTED TO THIS????????????????????????????????? HELLO--NOT ONE PERSON IN THE NEWS OUR OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS OIBJECTED TO THIS !--No OBAMA --hey guys, Americans CAN NOT DO THIS or they will be LOCKED UP!---NO---NO=-NO---NO-NO-NO-NO ! I don't like this---I WANT THESE BLACK PANTHERS INVESTIGATED AND THEIR HOMES AND OFFICES (that we probably pay for) SEARCHED for guns and other things--Eric Holder REFUSED to do this---he said that the BLACK MAN HAD SUFFERED ENOUGH---HE WAS NOT GOING TO PROSECUTE the BLACK PANTHERS??? So I ask you shouldn't HOLDER be removed from his position as US Attorney General! He has disgraced the office!!!!---People ---CALL OR RIGHT EVERYONE U KNOW--TV News===Elected officials--EVERYONE----EVERYDAY---Please start now!---- OR DO YOU WANT a VIGILANTI SOCIETY???---Well what do you SAY????

Dear Mr. Holder

 Why are the schools bared from verifing the age of illegals, in our school systems. This is bad, as some are reported to have Gray Hair, and one was reported to be 35 years old. Our schools only have a set amount to educate our American children, so what the heck are you doing to this countriy. Don't we have enough problems in our schools. And I implore you to secure our borders. Send the people back to their countries, and have them apply for a Visa, as my Great Grand Father did when he came, to this GREAT COUNTRY. if we let the LAW BREAKERS stay here, what other crimes are they going to committ, as they don't give a single care about OUR LAWS.

 

                                                                                                           Think about it Sir
