In a House hearing, Congressman Louie Gohmert told Attorney General Eric Holder that he has not received the promised documents from the Department of Justice, put on disc, the 9,600 summary documents, not some link, that were provided to “terrorists.” Holder said a few words about the documents and Gohmert interrupted with:
Sir, I’ve read you what your department promised and it is inadequate, and I realize that Contempt is not a big deal to our Attorney General..
to which Eric Holder sat back in his chair and said:
“You don’t want to go there buddy, you don’t want to go there.
Gohmert held his own ably, as Holder pointed a tense finger. See it in the video below.
They talked over each other. Holder said this is all about the “gun lobby,” to which Gohmert refused to let him be heard:P
GOHMERT: Sir, we’ve been trying to get to the bottom of Fast and Furious where people died, at least a couple of hundred Mexicans died. And we can’t get the information to get to the bottom of that, so I don’t need lectures from you about Contempt.
HOLDER: And I don’t need lectures from you, either.
GOHMERT: As a former judge I’ve never asked questions of someone held in Contempt because we purged the Contempt first.
