Eric Holder explodes at GOP rep: ‘You don’t want to go there, buddy!’

The Daily Caller – by Caroline May

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday.

In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.  

“I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said.

“You don’t want to go there, buddy! You don’t want to go there, okay,” Holder shot back.

“I don’t want to go there?” the Texas Republican responded.

“No,” Holder said, leaning forward in his seat.

“About the contempt?” Gohmert asked.

“You should not assume that that is not a big deal to me. I think that it was inappropriate, I think it was unjust. But never think that that was not a big deal to me. Don’t ever think that,” Holder said pointing at Gohmert.

Gohmert reiterated that the Justice Department has still not produced the documents related to Holders contempt charge.

“I’m just looking for evidence and normally we’re known by our fruits and there’s been no indications that it was a big deal because your department still has not been forthcoming in producing the documents that were the subject of the contempt,” Gohmert said.

      Look at the state’s public executions of those in prison!
      Actually dis-picable………and a horror scene…..Cause, then, who is next?….morals are not the state’s to dictate or decide………fact, were we all to return to a one, on one, thinking society, there would be little state…thoughts and lots of personal speaking……….way it is is the opposite…………all………the State Speaking…few individuals speaking…

          1. Some days I’m really busy at work, and others I get some time to post. Usually, later in the afternoons, occasionally earlier.

          2. You ain’t heard nothin’ yet. Wait till Angel and NC see it.

            Still can’t fix stupid. RLMAO!!! 😆

          3. I must of missed something. What? I’m sorry, but I’m left with more questions. Translate please? This reminds me of the toddler post.

            Perhaps it’s just way past my bedtime… Argh till tomorrow.

          4. That’s where I saw this déjà vu #1, LOL, I knew I was spot on with the toddler post. Get my email from Henry if you wish, got something to discuss with you.

            I’m off to sleep for now, it’s nearly 2am. Till tomorrow.

          5. ‘Night, Deb. Time for me to pack it in too.

            Henry, if you would, please? 🙂

      1. All laws are some sort of an imposition of morality.
        Even the absence of law is an imposition of a moral viewpoint.
        Your argument is logically incoherent.

  1. WTF?! How did the conversation by Gohmert go from Fast and Furious to being the “hero” of the Mexican infiltrators (pathetic kowtow to his foreign kings) and man-woman relationships? Is he running for office? Must be. Can we get some military generals back in office and toss these Pillsbury dough boys like ASAP?! Now, I understand why many have such as strong fear of clowns.

  2. This arrogant asshole needs to be run up a flagpole and left as a reminder to the rest of these government pr#@ks that they work for the people, not the other way around
