The Department of Justice.
Which is supposed to be.
Up front and above board you've got Eric Holder -- top lawyer in the country that has just an enormous.
As far as the rules of professional responsibility as a lawyer on top of that.
We've got an administration that says hey look we're going to be the most transparent administration you've ever seen.
-- -- not getting the documents that we've asked for over half the documents haven't even been provided of the documents that have been provided.
-- they've either been highly redacted.
And in many cases these documents have been blank.

When -- then that if holder would admit who authorized it.
And if he said how high it went up in the Department of Justice that -- -- would back away and -- not move forward this contempt citation.
Is that true.
I don't know if that's true bill or not -- those Kennedy -- of you know how significant.

I I can't answer that question but I can tell you that the frustration level.
Is through the rough and I think.
Darrell ice has been extremely patient here.
In -- more patient I think than any federal judge would be.
With that would that with a lawyer in in court that refused to fully comply with the subpoena that's been in place for over two years that's at issue is self imposed deadline was memorial weekend which is coming up soon.
