In his first move as the new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Operations Committee, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) renewed the subpoena issued to Attorney General Eric Holder.

Subpoenas die at the end of a session of Congress and thus need to be renewed. However, as Mike Vanderboegh notes, he doubts this will really go anywhere.
Sadly, I must agree with him. To the media, this is yesterday's story no matter that people are still being killed and will be killed with the walked AKs for a long time to come. Moreover, with Holder leaving office as soon as Loretta Lynch is confirmed as Attorney General, the impetus to go after him will diminish.
