Panel Sends Holder Contempt Vote to House Floor

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., left, and the committee's ranking Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., go to the House Rules Committee, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, June 27, 2012, to argue procedures as the House of Representatives prepares to vote on whether Attorney General Eric Holder is in contempt of Congress because he has refused to give the Oversight Committee all the documents it wants related to Operation Fast and Furious, the flawed gun-smuggling probe involving Mexican drug cartels.

June 27, 2012

The Rules Committee voted 8-4 on Wednesday to send to the House floor a measure on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

The party-line vote on the closed rule provides 25 minutes of debate for Republicans and 25 minutes for Democrats.

Before voting no, Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., made a brief statement.

"Mr. Chairman if we do this history will judge us harshly," he said.
