In case you were not aware, United States Attorney General Eric Holder has found himself in a predicament.
The highest lawyer in the United States government is facing a barrage from House Republicans led by Oversight Committee Chairman Darryl Issa in regards to the Justice Department's cooperation in the investigation of the Fast and Furious "gunwalking" scandal. On Monday the committee scheduled a vote on whether to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over subpoenaed documents related to the Fast and Furious investigation. The move marks only the fourth time in 30 years that Congress has launched a contempt action against a member of the Executive branch.
Believe it or not, this isn't Holder's first scandal. On "Real News" Thursday Buck Sexton ran down previous instances where Holder has come under fire, and the panel was then joined by former Justice Department official and Author of "Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department," J. Christian Adams. According to Adams, Holder is one of several officials in the Justice Department who he argues have pushed the office down a lawless and radical path not seen before in decades.
