Blake Farenthold Refused to Question Eric Holder, Who Should Be in Jail for Contempt of Congress

U.S. Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) refused to question U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder during a House Judiciary hearing. He protested the absence of “maintaining the constitutional balance of power” in Congress and spoke for the average American, who in the same position as Holder, would be in jail. He expressed the frustration we all feel at the lawlessness galloping through government. Important issues grow old, the Left uses the inaction to dismiss it, ‘justice’ becomes laughable, we become jaded.

I’m committed to maintaining the constitutional balance of power that this branch, this legislative branch has, and I just don’t think it appropriate that Holder be here. If an American citizen had not complied with one of the Justice Department subpoenas, they would be in jail, not sitting here in front of us testifying, but I realize there are questions to be asked and I’ll yield the remainder of my time Mr. Gowdy. ~ Blake Farenthold, Daily Caller

Holder had an uncomfortable day on Capitol Hill yesterday. See a related incident where Holder pointed a finger at a U.S. Congressman and told him “you don’t want to go there.”
