House Moving Ahead with Holder Contempt Vote
The House of Representatives is moving ahead with a contempt-of-Congress vote against Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday.
Holder is accused of withholding documents from the House Oversight Committee in its investigation of the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.
The botched 2010 gun sting has been linked to the death of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. The House is seeking to force Holder to turn over the documents.
"There should be a full and fair exchange of information so we can get to the bottom of it," Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., said.
"Mr. Terry's family needs to know, and American citizens need to know, what happened and why," he added.
President Obama has invoked executive privilege to keep Congress from seeing the documents.
