No Fast and Furious Agreement Between Holder and Issa

By on 6.19.12 | 6:18PM

It looks like the Holder-Issa powwow failed to stave off a committee vote possibly finding the attorney general in contempt of Congress. Katie Pavlich reports:

The meeting between Attorney General Eric Holder and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa has ended after 20 minutes of discussion. Holder came with an offer of a briefing on Fast and Furious documents, but did not physically turn over any documents. This is unsatisfactory to Issa who has said repeatedly that in order for Holder to avoid a contempt vote Wednesday at 10 AM, he must hand over 1300 Fast and Furious documents to the committee.

No documents, no peace. The contempt vote was originally scheduled for tomorrow morning, but Holder had hoped to get it postponed.
