Operation Fast And Furious Update
House Republican leaders said they were willing to talk with the White House in hopes of heading off a contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder, but they were planning the vote for next week. They said they would call it off only if the White House produced certain documents related to the botched gun-tracking program known as Operation Fast and Furious. The decision was now in their hands. The House Oversight Committee voted yesterday to hold Holder in contempt. It was a bitterly partisan meeting, with Democrats likening it to a "kangaroo court." The White House asserted executive privilege to prevent the Justice Department from turning over the documents.
