VAN SUSTEREN: And why doesn't the speaker then say, Let's fish or cut bait, either do this or don't do this, and either issue the contempt -- I mean, I don't know if you're right or wrong, but at least that would move it forward.ISSA: I believe that the speaker is close to the end of his rope. My job, of course, is to do my job until the speaker makes that decision. I'm comfortable that he will make the decision relatively soon.VAN SUSTEREN: What's relatively soon, a week, two weeks, a month, two months?ISSA: I don't expect to go home for 4th of July without having a date for contempt or knowing that it's time to wrap up this investigation and just admit that Justice is not transparent, that you're not going to get the kind of cooperation you want.
I spoke with Mr. Issa as well on Thursday evening before a series of votes and he confirmed the contempt charge against Mr. Holder"could be at anytime." within the next few weeks."The attitude of the Attorney General...the defiance--the refusal to even admit evidence that he was asked about directly...Jason Chaffetz reading an e-mail to him directly and him denying that it meant what it said and claiming superior knowledge," said Mr. Issa.
We shall see. I will have more on this tomorrow morning.
