House Committee to File Contempt Case Against Holder

The Attorney General will be exempt from prosecution thanks to executive privilege.


Washington (CNN) — The House Oversight Committee plans to file a civil contempt suit against Attorney General Eric Holder Monday after a contempt of Congress citation passed the House of Representatives last month.

"We are filing charges against Attorney General Eric Holder tomorrow," said a post on committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa's official Twitter account late Sunday, which included the hash tag "fastandfurious."
