William LaJeunesse, one of only two network reporters who have consistently followed Project Gunwalker, had a report earlier today on the draft contempt citation for Eric Holder that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has started circulating among House members. LaJeunesse says the draft lays out the case for the citation and notes that no documents have been received by the committee in 12 categories.
LaJeunesse speculates that Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) would not have started to circulate this draft contempt citation unless he had the backing of Speaker John Boehner and the votes on the committee to pass the citation. He does note that others are saying that John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are still not on board with the contempt citation. If the latter is correct, I say it is past time for them to get on board with it.
