Republican House leaders have drafted a proposed contempt of Congress citation against Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. in which they charge that he and his Justice Department have repeatedly "obstructed and slowed" the Capitol Hill investigation into the ATF's flawed Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.

The 48-page draft citation is being drawn up by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Top committee officials recently met for most of a day in the House speaker's office and were given the green light to proceed toward a contempt citation, according to sources who declined to be identified.

This has been a long time in the coming. They are handling Holder with kid gloves. He is on record for perjuring himself and if this whole Administration's stonewalling efforts are not obstruction of justice then nothing is. If this ends up in the garbage I will have lost all faith in our system of government.

The higher echelon of the Obama Administration has been under scrutiny over the deadly consequences of this program. Janet Napolitano also has perjured herself and the White House will not allow Kevin O'Reilly, a soldier in Afghanistan to testify.
