Way to go DOJ. Congress officially has no power?

From the Assotiated Press:
Justice won't prosecute Holder for contempt


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department has declared that Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to withhold information about a bungled gun-tracking operation from Congress does not constitute a crime and he won't be prosecuted for contempt of Congress.


This is a preview of coming attractions. Is this the message to congress that they are "officially" neutered? Message to the American People: Illegal activities by us are UN-stoppable. "Know your role jerky" With love, TPTB

Associated Press? (I always like to note the source.)

The Department of Justice cannot simply overrule a Congressional Committee. Whether they (meaning Holder's subordinate administration) refused to prosecute is irrelevant.

"Special Prosecutor" candidates are standing in line on this political show... it will make their career.

Or am I wrong?

yes that's right, however he will be prosecuted in civil court.

I think in this case there is an abundance of conflict of interest.
I mean, of course the DOJ is not going to prosecute their boss.

Yeah but really...

Who didn't see that coming anyway?



He's above the law.. You know that. So, of course he won't get charged. At least he got his behind handed down to him.

Publicly anyway.

You can't criminally prosecute anyone in civil court.

How should I say this: I am shocked, shocked, that the DOJ won't prosecute itself.

Wouldn't Obama have to get rid of him somehow, to at least keep his job come november? Holder is guilty but he also is left "holding the bag" for the other higher ups who knew what was going on and who are equally as guilty. Holder is the fallguy is he not?

I'm really learning a lot about how the American system works.

Political Partisanship is a neutered beast in this land.

I suppose the republican party can declare war upon the U.S. Department of Justice next if they want to show us they mean business.

I am not Republican and I agree with Congress finding the truth! Nice try!

Most importantly this is NOT the "American" system.... this is the system of the DUOPOLY - the Republican and Democratic Parties which would rather the country go down in flames than relinquish their vice-like grip on the teat of the American people.

why would anyone release the power they have over another?

is this preschool or something?

find me someone in all of human history...that simply let a people go without a fight.

the 10 commandments is a good movie. Ramses only submitted to God himself and only after he had no other choice.

perhaps, the republicans can go find God and he'll do something for them.

The DOJ is an oxymoron. There is no justice in the DOJ.
