House Republicans plan to press on with consideration Wednesday by the Oversight and Government Reform Committee of a vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress regarding a stand-off over documents tied to the botched Fast and Furious" sting operation.
The announcement Tuesday night by committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., followed a closed-door meeting at the Capitol between Issa and other Republican and Democratic lawmakers with Holder at the U.S. Capitol. Issa described himself as disappointed and still hoping for a breakthrough.
"I had hoped that after this evening's meeting I would be able to tell you that the Department had delivered documents that would justify the postponement of tomorrow's vote on contempt," said Issa, in a statement.
Issa claimed the Justice Department had told the Committee last Thursday that it had documents it could produce that would answer our questions.
But Issa said, "Today, the Attorney General informed us that the Department would not be producing those documents. The only offer they made involved us ending our investigation."

The ag should have resigned months ago. It is his watch that this terrible idea happened on so he is the boss, it is only just that he be fired or resign. If Mexico's law enforcement department had sold those guns to terrorists in the US knowing that they were terrorist, I don't know but I think that the swtf. Is he kidding we are trying to stop the drug gangs so we arm them with the good stuff and see where they go, really! I am really sad lately with the state of things.
Holder said he offered to provide the documents to Issa on the condition that Issa provided his assurance that doing so would satisfy two committee subpoenas and resolve the dispute.
( doing so would satisfy two committee subpoenas and resolve the dispute.)
A Justice Department spokesman reiterated Holder's position that the documents would show Holder had nothing to hide about his role in Fast and Furious
