Former Schumer advisor parks his political analyst Christopher -- wall street journal editorial board member.
Dairy council good to have you all here very first of all this is a breathtaking.
The attorney general appears that he's gonna be the subject of a -- above the house oversight committee on contempt of congress.
I think he's making himself a political liability for the Obama administration but you know.
This is just par for the course with Eric Holder he stonewalled releasing documents on Solyndra.
We've seen them stonewalling.
On documents and budget information on the consumer bureau.
This is just just -- peace with us attorney general -- fortunately well.
Listen I think that crisis said when he took the chairmanship of this committee that he wanted to have an investigation we can he wanted to get a couple scalp from the administration and he thinks that this is his first out I think he's wrong.
I think he's been overly aggressive and I think he's all politics all the time.
Not one ounce of substance not a man of purity and reflect a lot of advice -- and -- like thirty car alarms into his -- and.
For a minute let's talk about what's really in a Smart Smart 10 o'clock and I have this from the very top level GOP aide.
-- who spoke with after the meeting with about a twenty minute -- -- was not contentious I was told it was not contentious at all.
But clearly holder came in with one agenda that was not gonna go anywhere.
And said look we're gonna give you a compilation.
But we're not gonna get you what's called privileged law -- The -- -- mean art if you're not gonna give us documents OK tell us why you're not gonna give us documents that happens all the time between lawyers and discovery.
They wouldn't hold hold it would not even do that so with this -- told me is tomorrow at 10 o'clock.
East Coast time they start the markup for the contempt petition.
10 o'clock tomorrow and.
-- and he and we want to again -- in every instance historically.
In which -- And citation for contempt of congress other number of stages and let -- -- Followed through this so poll our house would have to vote before that there -- But in every instance documents subpoenaed by congress have had to be delivered -- in full.
Or at the corporate debt market aren't exactly but the courts want the branches of government work this -- themselves they're not really involved you know what I think Britain but that's that's we're past -- we're way up I -- thought I'm here with you a week ago.
But now I think we're past that especially when attorney general holder came forward that -- highlight I don't.
This idea -- that the the attorney general walked in and said -- it to the cameras the capital.
A that he made an extraordinary offer which was this offer that you've just described.
Plus that he would determine whether or not -- satisfied.
That you the committee subpoena -- I mean that's that's a story.
-- attorney general above the law and you look the extraordinary thing to me is that either side let it get to this point it's Republican's interest.
Elected Democrats think this is a policy argument it's not in the democrats' interest to have this -- -- yeah and the Republicans again look like they're bullying the administration.
I resented most Americans do not believe -- Yeah -- -- and parts and knowing and that's what are you are worried about -- -- -- -- it.
Can you ever wants it as one of the country's leading Democrats not not reach out and grasp and embraced -- -- I mean you do it -- -- reinforce its -- all of them.
Victim he's right -- ground you said he's built it already reload to quell that yeah.
Sorry -- -- get nothing body to the fee would you -- a color rigidity of paper herself.
We're gonna etc.
but it your present growth lot of progress -- the typical.
There's another thing that was reported that happened in this meeting was that outlook holder attorney general holder came in and -- we'll give this compilation.
If and only if and -- I don't think this have been reported it until now if you will hold off on any perceived.
Not just the contempt proceeding and -- investigative -- resolve the entire matter.
But but -- looking -- here's the problem how can and you say here's a compilation.
We'll give you that and then that's it it's not a surprise when you when you on the other side have not even seen with those to.
What you're OK so what you're saying here it seems to me and -- Margaret -- you -- think.
What I hear you saying is the holder walked in and said we're going to deliver pizzas and upon delivery that not only satisfies your subpoena.
But preempt any further our discussion of this issue and investigation by your committee.
Is that what I'm hear you saying.
That's extraordinary all right well you know bottom lines this this is not the first time there's been done running bait and switch out of part of it is the only my time in the history of the United States in which to law enforcement officers of this country have been gone down by guy off -- Levy -- That have been gunned down by guns walked across the border at the order of the Justice Department and -- it is the -- Every now.
-- -- -- making her look like they're out in August is going down my guns -- map and and would be there to operation wide receiver was a bad thing to be there and -- Know what you just you just conjoined two sentences one of which is not related to the other.
There was not any law enforcement officer and I would -- you to correct the record.
I there was not any law enforcement officer injured by any gun in operation wide receiver at any time here with is that I think in general are all right let strikingly similar us or you're striking -- -- -- get back but it was strikingly similar -- dispel this time.
